The subjects are situated on the bustling Batchen Street, where the pedestrianisation is due to be restored in the centre of Elgin. The surrounding area contains mainly ground floor retail shops occupied by high quality and truly unique, independent traders with residential or commercial usage on the upper floors. A range of high street shops, small retailers, cafes, restaurants, and leisure facilities are on offer in the vicinity. Much has been done in recent years to regenerate the town while the High Street retains many of its original buildings and cobbled streets. The property is also located within a Conservation Area.
