Both featured properties qualify for the Government-backed Help to Buy (Scotland) scheme which allows buyers to purchase a home with only a five per cent deposit.  The homes boast a high specification throughout and luxury fittings including soft close kitchen units, Laufen wall-hung WC and basins, Hansgrohe showers and taps, and Porcelanosa tiling.  The Raasay apartment also comes complete with an integrated washer / dryer.

Joanne Casey, Director of Mactaggart & Mickel Homes, said:

“Both showhomes have been designed to show each property at its absolute best and, with Help to Buy funding available, it’s the perfect start for first time buyers.

“Our Millerhill development really does have something for everyone – stunning homes in a beautiful rural setting with fast and easy access to the city centre.”
