500 new businesses were created in Aberdeenshire in 2016, so now may be the time to move your ideas forward and capitalise upon an opportunity. There are plans and designs for a start-up incubator unit at the edge of Cairnhill with great visibility from the A90 and within easy reach of shops and cafes. The idea is to bring together individuals and businesses with similar passions to collaborate and nurture business growth. Small, flexible office spaces with great access to the communications network, a shared kitchen and boardroom facilities on offer. Start-up businesses will be able to tap into a network of business support and the office units are flexible enough to accommodate specialist requirements. All this is designed in an attractive rural setting to foster a forward-thinking and collaborative community.

The Cairnhill High Street will offer a fantastic opportunity for retailers and small offices wanting a shopfront and excellent communication within modern and purpose built premises.
