New Homes Near Perth in Perthshire

Druids Park is a delightful new housing development located 10 miles North of Perth. The new houses are built to a very high standard and for once without trying to cram as many properties into an area of land.

So many new building developments just squeeze houses so closely together that they should be actually called terraced houses. The Druids Park is located in an old hospital ground with mature gardens dotted everywhere. Each house has a nice size garden and drive way. The design of the properties are also built to a very high specification offering luxury living.

The final phase of this new building development is well under way, so make sure you booking a viewing time sooner rather than later so you don't miss out on these fantastic new houses. Druids Park is located about 5 minutes from the A9 making it ideal to commute to Perth.

Today there is talk in the news about how Dubai World basically the government can't afford to pay their debts yet and need more time.

How many people will not invest in either of these countries regardless of how genuine the opportunity is.

Governments really need to understand the impact of a negative reputation and how long it can last for.
