And with prices starting from just £116,500 a move to this development is a real option for first time buyers looking for their first move onto the property ladder. Plus buyers can also take advantage of the Government supported Help to Buy (Scotland) scheme at this development making a move to Wester Meadow easier than ever.

There is no salary cap for purchasers using the interest-free equity loan scheme, and it is available to both first time buyers and existing homeowners alike.

“It is important for prospective buyers to have completed the approval process for both a lender and the Government agency LINK before they can be accepted into the Help to Buy (Scotland) scheme, and we’re happy to guide them through this.
