    “Don't expect to get any sleep on a Friday or Saturday night.”

    The noise from the street (drunks) is horrific which goes on and on thanks to the kebab shop next door. The single glazing in the bedrooms only makes it worse. Friday my wife and I were up till 1:30, Saturday is was 3am! ...

    The noise from the street (drunks) is horrific which goes on and on thanks to the kebab shop next door. The single glazing in the bedrooms only makes it worse. Friday my wife and I were up till 1:30, Saturday is was 3am! Extremely disappointing for an apartment that is very nice, comfy and clean. To improve double glaze the windows, complain about your neighbors excessive business hours, replace the sofa (almost broke my tail bone after sitting between two seat cushions) and ideally install a dishwasher.

The Institute Executive Apartments

The Institute Executive Apartments reside in a Grade II Listed Town Hall conversion in the centre of the friendly town of Keith, Moray. There are seven apartments in total, each named with titles that playfully refer to the building's rich history, including: 'The Clock Tower', 'Council Chambers' and 'The Court Room'. All apartments are brand new and are purpose-built for serviced accommodation, showcasing open-plan living spaces with sleek grey and white tones; along with sharing a spacious car park (with additional parking nearby) and a utility room, for extra convenience. The dwellings are set amongst a fantastic location, with guests' amenities at their feet; a convenience shop and pub can be found less than a mile away, including the Royal Hotel, a fantastic place to go for delicious food and welcoming service. Keith is also home to an array of activities, from the Keith Kilt and Textile Centre, the only school teaching creative embroidery and kiltmaking, the renowned Strathisla Distillery tour and the intriguing Speyside Falconry where visitors can partake in a magical experience with owls. Enjoy a day out with a difference in Huntly and explore the preserved ruins of the once-glorious Huntly Castle, before playing a game of putty at the Huntly Golf Club and trying your hand at skiing or snowboarding at the Huntly Nordic and Outdoor Centre. The village of Fochabers isn't far and provides visitors with the breathtaking Gordon Castle Escape, where you can wander its grounds and walled garden to your heart's content, before enjoying a sweet treat at the on-site café; outdoors fans can enjoy cycling and hiking on the Moray Monster Trails through the vast woodlands that back onto the village. Board the train at Keith to explore the wider area of Moray and Aberdeenshire, enjoy a cultural day out in the thriving cities of Aberdeen and Inverness, travel to the coastal town of Macduff or venture into the centre of Cairngorms National Park for more outdoors delights! There is so much fun to be had with your friends and family from this fantastic set of apartments.

The property

The wonderful duplex apartment, The Clock Tower, rests in the centre of the town of Keith.

Situated inside an impressive Grade II Listed Building and within easy reach of the north east Scottish Coast and the cities of Aberdeen and Inverness, The Clock Tower is the perfect setting for a family of four.

There is also the option to book multiple apartments within the complex for large parties.

Park your vehicles in the shared car park that boasts four off-road spaces, with additional parking nearby, before venturing into the historic town hall conversion.

Enter the apartment and head up to the second floor to find a fabulous open-plan living space, with exposed beams that have been painted black and contemporary furnishings that will leave you feeling dazzled!

Snuggle up with your loved ones on the spacious corner sofa and watch a family-favourite on the impressive flatscreen TV.

Just behind the sitting area is a sleek kitchen, with black fittings that are home to integrated appliances, including a fridge/freezer and a combi microwave/oven.

After the chef of the group has rustled up a tasty dinner, enjoy it at the chic dining table with its luxurious, suede seating.

When night falls, venture down to the first floor to a king-size room with large windows that allow the light to flood the space, along with an open-plan bathroom; soak up and enjoy a well-deserved rest in the fabulous freestanding bath!

The shower room is situated further along the corridor with spacious walk-in shower and all the essentials you need to prep yourself for the day.

A communal utility room can also be found in the complex, meaning you won't need to travel to access your laundry appliances.

There is so much to experience from the excellent Clock Tower.

About the location

KEITH

Dufftown 11 miles; Aberdeen 49 miles; Inverness 55 miles

The small market town of Keith in the north east of Scotland is situated about mid way between the city of Aberdeen to the east and the city of Inverness to the west. Keith is truly in the heart of the Speyside Malt Whisky Country with its many distilleries and visitor centres. The friendly town boasts good facilities with a selection of shops, hotels and restaurants and also has its own 18 hole golf course and three tennis courts! Keith is home to the original Kilt School of Scotland, the only one of its kind where traditional kilt making skills can still be seen today. The area is not only rich in distilleries but also in castles and the ruins of Balvenie Castle near Dufftown are well worth a visit as the castle has hosted guests such as Mary Queen of Scots and Edward 1.
