A true gem! Beautiful rural cottage, wonderful views. Very comfortable and cosy. Has everything you need. The children loved the sheep and cows around the cottage. Excellent location for walking & hiking, Glen Doll Ranger's centre is just a few minutes away at the end of the glen. We could really recommend a trip to RSPB Fowsleugh & Dunnottor CastlRead moree (1 hr.), the National Wallace monument (1.45 hrs.) and Reekie Lyn waterfall walk to Peel farm (30 min.). Hide

Very peaceful and relaxing cottage. Lots of equipment in the kitchen so if you like self catering it is ideal. The welcome pack and fresh flowers were very generous and made you feel at home immediately. There is lots of local information to help you get around and enjoy the area. Access to the property is via an unmade farm track so might prove diRead morefficult for some vehicles. Hide

Brilliant base for exploring the beautiful surrounding countryside and golfing paradise that is Angus. The remote location just adds to it's charm, with the peaceful setting just what we were looking for.

Slightly deceptive cottage tucked behind farmhand cottage and farmyard barns. Makes you feel you found a gem in the countryside. Very idyllic with good panoramic views. Large garden which is predominantly secure allowing for pets to roam around it reasonably free under the watchful eye of their owners. Lovely cottage with a full set of modern ameniRead moreties and very clean. Hide
