1.56 Acre Brownfield Development Site within Mixed Use Area of Dyce


The site lies within Dyce, an important suburb of Aberdeen 6 miles to the north-west of its City Centre. It adjoins Farburn Terrace, which runs along the east side of Aberdeen Airport and has a mix of commercial, industrial and residential properties adjoining it.

Dyce is one of Aberdeen’s major employment centres with a significant commercial and industrial base centred around the oil industry, Aberdeen Airport (the terminal is 1.0 mile from the site), the newly constructed Aberdeen Exhibition Centre and has excellent links to / from the south, via the recently opened Aberdeen Western Peripheral Road. With a population of around 6,000, Dyce has good facilities, including schools, a wide range of shops & community facilities and a railway station on the Aberdeen – Inverness line (0.5 miles from the site). Bus stops for access into Aberdeen are within easy walking distance on Victoria Street.

The site is adjoined on its north side by a flatted development completed in 2013, on its east side by Farburn Place with the Aberdeen Inverness railway line beyond, on its south side by Farburn Terrace and on its west side by several office & commercial premises. On the opposite side of Farburn Terrace is the Hallmark Hotel, Aberdeen Airport and there is a Bank of Scotland branch 50 metres from the site


An irregular shaped bare brownfield site, with direct access onto both Farburn Terrace and Farburn Place. On two levels, the south part of the site has an existing access off Farburn Terrace and is a flat piece of ground that has a part stone base; the north part of the site has an existing access point off Farburn Place, is at a higher level and is gently undulating.
