A spacious, detached, modern house located in a quiet cul-de-sac within the town. Three, substantial bedrooms all with en-suites. The kitchen/dining area is open plan with plenty natural light. Large, cozy living room overlooking the sea. Additional games and computer room for the young people to enjoy. Fire detection system. Outdoor recreational space and a play park 100 metres from the house. Being located so close to the sea, dolphins are often spotted. If lucky enough, the dolphins will ride the waves alongside you on the house's boat or jet ski. Lots of fun is guaranteed in the summer months.

Local amenities are nearby with the local primary and secondary schools approximately a 10-15 minutes walk, as well as the local swimming pool and town centre. The town of Banff is ideally situated midway between the two cities of Aberdeen and Elgin, offering the benefits of both city resources (such as ice skating, cinema, bowling and amusement park).

At Ocean View we promote learning in health and wellbeing in order to ensure children and young people develop an understanding of the skills needed for positive social, mental, emotional and physical wellbeing now and in the future. We actively promote outdoor activities, with time spent at the local beach, walks through the forest, or outward day activities which offer outdoor fun (such as go-karting and zorbing). 

We offer balanced nutritious meals, together with the input of the young people in our care. We encourage participation in baking within the home and provide guidance which allows the development of skills needed for our young people to function successfully in independence.
