The MacRobert Trust estate includes a total of 59 houses. The MacRobert Trust’s residential properties are located both within the village itself and around the outskirts of the village, in the Howe O’ Cromar. Some of the houses are farmhouses which are let with farms, some are used for staff accommodation and the remainder are let houses on short assured tenancies.
The MacRobert Trust has been working with the local community on potentially developing further residential housing on MacRobert Trust land on the Village Farm site, in the village of Tarland. This site has been undeveloped since it was included in the 2002 Aberdeenshire Local Plan. You can read more about this project here.
