Current owners comments.
The current owners DavId and Joanne returned from New Zealand in 1984 with their family after much soul searching. David was a G.P in Peterhead until retirement and Joanne was a nurse before achieving a fine arts degree from Gray’s school of Art in Aberdeen.
“ The first time we stepped over the doorstep we got an instant feel good vibe and ambience. This initial feeling has been confirmed multiple times over the years by family and friends. Our four children ran through our new home and couldn’t wait to choose their own bedrooms. This was a great sign for us how comfortable they were and confirmed that this would be our new home. It has been an absolute pleasure living here and we have every faith that whoever is the future owner of Airlie Lodge will also share these sentiments. Kindest regards to the next family.” David and Joanne Campbell.
