About Diane Ramsay

Alastair and Diane bought Wester Derry farm just after they married in 1994 and have renovated it and the derelict farm buildings to provide a home for their family of 9 children and assorted pets. The family are passionate about caring for the environment and sharing their beautiful farm with their holiday home guests. Both realise how challenging it can be to find a holiday home that suits all the family and lets parents relax and enjoy a little peace and quiet while everyone is happy. They designed their holiday homes to make yours a happy family holiday

In Summer Wester Derry farmland and hill is perfect for walks, picnics and stunning views. In Winter the hill is a great nursery ski and sledging slope right at your door. The lower fields run down to the Kilry Burn which is good for a paddle or beginners brown trout fishing. Wester Derry species rich meadows are a haven for wildlife and managed to encourage biodiversity, you may well see deer, red squirrels and otters and by night hear our barn owl . We are careful to provide environmentally aware family holiday homes and are members of the Green Tourism Business Scheme. We lovingly renovated our old farm threshing mill which now runs our small farm micro hydro scheme to partially power our holiday homes

Short stay in June

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of our family, plus the dog, stayed for three nights at the beginning of June. We had a welcoming bottle of wine and Alistair soon popped over to make sure everything was alright. The cottage was immaculate with everything you could possibly need and the Ramsays were very helpful, including the younger ones. We enjoyed the Highland games at Glamis Castle and the Reekie Linn falls were well worth a look. Also had a good evening meal at the Alyth Hotel. Would recommend the cottage and area to anyone.

We booked Hazel Lodge for our family holiday whilst visiting friends in Dundee. The house exceeded our expectations. Large, well equipped and immaculate. The owners Alistair and Diane checked in with us a few times, and were always on call if needed. Whilst in a rural location there is lots to see and you can reach many locations within a hours drive. We wouldn't hesitate return to the house for future holidays.

Stunning Wester Derry

  • 5 of 5

We rented Hazel Lodge for one week. It is in a beautiful location the house is spacious and clean and the owners friendly and welcoming.

The barn play facilities were great and kept our kids amused whilst we prepared dinner etc.

It was an ideal location to visit Glen Shee, Blairgowrie, Kirriemuir, Dundee.

Our kids loved the log burning stove and ice cold tap water (a novelty coming from Australia)

I would very happily recommend this property to friends it is great for families. It is everything you could wish for in a holiday home. Thank you. Our boys enjoyed a kick around with the boys from the farm too!

The soon to be added wifi to the house will be the icing on the cake. (Wifi was available intermittently in the barn)

'The Kennedy's'

  • 5 of 5

Arrived at this well appointed 3 bedroom detached lodge with log burning fire. Spotlessly clean with freshly made Tiffin on the kitchen table to welcome us. (which was yummy). Met by owner soon after our arrival, who extended a warm welcome and offered any assistance we may need during our stay. The games barn provided entertainment for old and young, Would highly recommend a stay at this location. thank you 'The Ramsay's' we will be back.x

Wir (5 erwachsene) hatten eine super Zeit. Das Haus ist mit allem (neuwertig) ausgestattet was für einen Urlaub notwendig ist um sich wohl zu fühlen. Einzig die angepriesene Spielscheune entspricht nicht den Erwartungen. Fazit: lohnt sich: auch für Familien mit Kindern.
