Development name chosen by Newtonmore pupils unveiled

18th June 2024

3624 Tulloch Homes Newtonmore 005

Two Newtonmore Primary pupils have named the upcoming Tulloch Homes development in Newtonmore.

10 year old Isaac and 11 year old Sophia suggested the name “Spey Green” for the new Tulloch development taking inspiration from the nearby Spey River and rural location of the village.

Tulloch homes recently engaged with the pupils at the school setting them the challenge of naming the new development, which is set to launch this summer.

Students considered the environment surrounding the development and the history of the village to inspire their suggestions and Tulloch Sales and Marketing Director, Jo McLaren, had a tough job selecting just one name for the new development. She said:

“It was so clear how much time and effort the pupils at Newtonmore have put into the naming our new development and we were spoiled for choice with some fantastic suggestions. It was really hard to pick just one name for the development, but I just loved the name Spey Green – Isaac and Sophia did a fantastic job.

“Spey Green is a lovely nod to the Spey River which sweeps past the village, and Newtonmore has a beautiful green backdrop, so the name is very apt for the location. Thank you to all of the students who worked hard on selecting a name.”

Located off Perth Road, the development will include a range of one, two and three bedroom energy efficient homes – including apartments and bungalows – and is well connected to Newtonmore train station, the golf club, local shops and cafes and less than an hour’s drive to Inverness. The first homes are expected to be occupied early next year.
