Lovely property with great facilities

4 of 5
Just back from a short break here with the family. We stayed in the Isla and were impressed with the little touches - welcome basket and store cupboard essentials like oil, salt & pepper, etc. The swimming pool is lovely with great views across the landscape. Loved playing tennis too. A great find... we will be back

Everything we wished for. SUPERB,

5 of 5
We explored different parts of the surrounding area every day and still didn't do everything we wanted to. Glen Clova was a complete delight, so many different walks from the same starting point. Glamis Castle , Duntottar Castle, Edzell Castle and the House of Dun were all superb in their own very different and unique ways. We can highly recommend a visit to any of these places. The Drovers Inn serves superb quality food, a brilliant way to spend an evening. In addition the Airlie Arms in Kirriemuir was also superb (mind, we were wanting to watch the football and they catered for our every need). Great food and company here too. As well as visiting castles were also enjoyed several woodland walks, where we saw a couple of red squirrels, whilst in Augusta's Walk (at House of Dun) we surprised a deer and fawn, after several seconds of staring at each other (us and the deer) the deer ambled off into the woods. In addition Lunan Bay was a great beach walk, with a ruined castle at one end and a cave at the other. The cafe there was superb and offers a selection of "free from" goods in the shop area. The cottage was very well appointed and we lacked for nothing, the kitchen was very well stocked with utensils. We loved the history of past residents of Winters Cottage, it gave a sense of a family home rather than a rental cottage. There is nothing can can be done to improve on the cottage. We loved watching all the birds, rabbits and pheasants first thing in the morning exploring the garden. What a great way to wake up! There is nothing to fault about the cottage, the location or activities to do in the area. We have fallen hopelessly for Dykehead, Angus and its environs. Everyone we spoke to was friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. We will definitely be back, possibly as soon as next year.
