  • "We absolutely loved this property just the right area and size for our party ."

    The dogs loved the fully enclosed small garden but the web page was a bit misleading as there is another grassed area that is definitely not enclosed, more so now as work got done last week when we were there .There is a gap in the fence about 2 feet which a robot grass cutter has access back and for to 2 gardens which seems a waste of time , but apart from that we will definitely return here I have already been checking availability .

  • "Lovely and clean."

    Very spacious. Great enclosed garden for dog. A good generous supply of wood for the fire, we have been to places where they leave only 3 or 4 logs. We will definitely visit again. Good central location just over an hour to Aberdeen and about an hour to St andrews.

The property

Forfar 3.7 miles.

Immersed in glorious Scottish countryside in the hamlet of Lour, is this wonderful little abode, Bankhead of Lour Bungalow.

Set just a few miles from the amenities of Forfar, this single-storey dwelling invites a family of four and their canine companion for a relaxing break to Scotland’s east coast.

After a day of rambling the Scottish outdoors, look forward to putting your feet up in the lounge, complete with two plush settees, a woodburning stove and a Smart TV, creating a lovely setup to enjoy movie nights.

Wander into the kitchen, with an electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge/freezer to help prepare meals, whilst the washing machine comes in handy for your laundry needs.

Gather at the dining table and pop open a bottle of bubbly to celebrate this Scottish escape.

Head outdoors and appreciate the fresh air whilst your pooch stretches their legs on the lawn.

When it comes to sleep, a pretty double and twin bedroom await, serviced by a gleaming shower room.

Find your closest amenities in the town of Forfar, boasting a choice of shops, supermarkets, pubs, cafés and restaurants, plus the monthly farmer’s market gives you chance to source some fine agricultural produce.

Keen golfers can head ten miles to Carnoustie and tee off at the Carnoustie Golf Links course that often hosts the Open Championship, where many famous golfers have played before.

Leisurely strolls around the RSPB Scotland Loch of Kinnordy are recommended, whilst further afield, the attractive old harbour town of Arbroath offers long sandy beaches and stunning sandstone cliffs set out to either side of the town.

Continue boxing off this part of Scotland with a trip north to the Cairngorms National Park, home to a picturesque range of lochs, moorland and mountain landscapes, whilst the capital city of Edinburgh can be found to the south, a bustling hub with top attractions worth adding to the itinerary.

Escape to Bankhead of Lour Bungalow for a relaxing break, whatever time of year.
