  • "North lodge is NOT what you see on the sykes website."

    The pictures do not reflect the true conditions . The car parking had various rubbish in the driveway, when i arrived the property was very cold . owners had not bothered to heat it up for our arrival..not sure when the property was last rented out prior to my stay but there was a musty/damp smell. 3 windows in the living room could NOT be opened .we lasted 15 hours and had to leave due toone of my family suffering an asthmatic attack. I WOULD NOT RECOMEND THIS PROPERTY ..and this is my 9th property i haverented from SYKES...sykes had tried to contact the owner but have not been succssful.

  • "This was exactly what we were hoping for."

    The cottage was very well equipped and the view was superb. The location was easy to reach, remote yet only 7 miles from the nearest town. We would book again without hesitation and well done to the owners for keeping the authenticity of the lodge.

  • "A special place to stay in a very comfortable house with beautiful views across the farm and the countryside beyond."

    The house has been well equipped for guests and we especially enjoyed the luxurious feel to the bedrooms. The long, deep bath was great too, particularly after long walks exploring the southern Cairngorms. Thank you for a friendly welcome and relaxing stay.

    Delighted that you enjoyed your stay, thank you for your review. Property Owner

Kirriemuir 8.6 miles.

Tucked away on the owner's farm in Fern near Kirriemuir, Angus is this welcoming, single-storey, detached cottage, North Lodge.

Welcoming a group or family of six, you'll find everything you need to explore the great outdoors in this homely cottage in the Scottish Highlands.

Three off-road parking spaces are available to unpack your belongings and admire the sweeping views across the Angus Glens.

A well-equipped kitchen awaits the group chef to rustle up hearty meals, utilising the electric oven and hob, whilst a washing machine and dishwasher ensure easy clean ups.

Gather around the table for six in the living/dining room to toast to your retreat or retire to the sofa in front of the crackling woodburning stove; there's a TV for evening entertainment as well as a selection of books and games.

Surrounded by idyllic countryside, be sure to enjoy the peace and quiet in the front, enclosed garden, whilst you marvel at the unspoilt views.

Follow long hill walks and busy days with a hot bath in the bathroom, before retiring to one of three bedrooms; there are two doubles and a zip/link twin to suit couples, families and friends.

Take a break from the kitchen and dine at the nearby Drovers Inn, a traditional whitewashed pub serving hearty Scottish meals, or venture into the picturesque, sandstone town of Kirriemuir, home to a range of shops and eateries.

Attractions include birthplace of J M Barrie, the creator of Peter Pan, as well as Peter Pan Park, and Kirriemuir Golf Club.

Historians will love the magnificent, 14th-century Glamis Castle, offering guided tours of its lavish interiors, whilst walkers have an abundance of landscapes to explore; Angus Glens offers scenic hill walks and woodlands to explore.

Alternatively, the vibrant coastal cities of Dundee and Aberdeen are within easy reach to discover Scotland's rich history, culture and local delicacies.

Escape to the Scottish Highlands with a stay at North Lodge.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £300.

Kirriemuir is a lovely red sandstone town in the valley of Strathmore, regarded as the gateway to the Angus Glens, which offer some of Scotland's most unspoiled landscape. The town is home to the birthplace of novelist JM Barrie, creator of the much-loved children's character Peter Pan and the house is now a museum looked after by the National Trust for Scotland. A statue of Peter Pan can be found in the town. Kirriemuir also offers Glamis Castle and the historic Pictish Stones at Meigle, while the Angus Glens offer great hill walking and climbing. With a fine variety of shops, hotels and pubs in the town and surrounding area, there is something here to suit all tastes.
