Muffin has open gardens surrounding the property, with an area to the rear containing a wooden shed and with sufficient space for a vegetable patch. There is a footpath that runs to the front of the property so it is safe for children and pets, as parking is at the end of the enclave. To the rear of the property are the woods, providing a haven for birds and wildlife as well as a great area for children to play or for walking and meditating.
Muffin is situated in a small enclave of houses backing onto woods, with all the amenities of The Park within a few minutes’ walk – cafes, shops, theatre etc. It is part of the Eco Village project linked to the Findhorn Foundation aiming to produce a low overall carbon footprint. A small wind farm provides a portion of the electricity needs for the community. The many programmes of the Foundation have recently restarted and generally include meditation offerings at each of the four sanctuaries, three of which are within a 3-minute walk. The sky is big, the air is clean and the weather unusually sunny for the North of Scotland. The beach and ocean are a 15-minute walk through the woods and the dunes, or a short bike ride along the road through Findhorn Village.
Transport links by air and rail are close by. Car share schemes are available locally, and the flat terrain is ideal for cycling. Two organic veg box schemes are in operation and “The Phoenix” local shop stocks a wide range of organic produce. The Phoenix café was recently listed as one of Scotland’s best vegetarian restaurants in The Times and La Boheme pizzeria is always popular. The more widely known Universal Hall and Moray Art Centre offer wonderful live event and exhibitions.
