Location: Little Thornton is 3 miles from the old market town of Laurencekirk which lies almost equidistant between Aberdeen and Dundee, directly adjacent to the A90 and with its own railway station offering Intercity travel making it a prime commuter spot. Laurencekirk is a growing and thriving community and has its own comprehensive range of facilities, together with further services at Stonehaven, Montrose and Brechin. However, it still retains the sense of a small community, and offers a high standard of living together with the benefits of rural surroundings, with the Angus Glens to the west, the beautiful beach and nature reserve of St. Cyrus to the east and winter sports to the north. Laurencekirk offers superb opportunities for family life, with nurseries, primary school and traditional parks at each end of the town. There is secondary schooling at the modern Mearns Academy, and a range of other facilities including modern health centre and dental practice, a gym and a variety of eating establishments, shops and garages.
