a village in the woods

An Camas Mòr is planned as a cluster of village homes nestled in the forest. It is designed to give local workers a fair opportunity to have an affordable home and workspace.

A small footprint – with a close mix of space for shops, work, homes and a school- will support our community and our environment.

 

‘Aviemore and vicinity Community Council plan new living and working space across the river Spey, on Rothiemurchus. We felt it was our responsibility to support the community and make a good environment for people and nature.’

Story

Aviemore and Vicinity Community Council hope to make the river Spey the centre of community life in Aviemore. As part of the local plan, they include new homes on the Rothiemurchus side of the Spey.


Rothiemurchus has put together a team to realise the Community Council’s vision at An Camas Mòr.

Our team are putting the particular needs of our community at the centre of the design, so that local workers will have a fair opportunity to own a home.
