A delightful, detached cottage superbly located in its own grounds near the owner's guest house amid the wild splendour of Glen Esk in Angus.

Sitting within the spectacular Cairngorms National Park, this unique cottage is ideal for a couple wishing to spend time together surrounded by beautiful scenery and tranquillity.

There is a spiral staircase leading you up to the bedroom, which can be a double or twin on request.

An enclosed garden allows you to enjoy the superb views of the surrounding mountains but also watch the antics of the chickens, pigs and guinea fowl that roam around the owner’s property.

Walk or cycle from your front door into Glen Esk or one of the other Angus Glens in the area.

The scenery in this fabulous part of Scotland also makes it the ideal venue for climbing, skiing, fishing and kayaking.

Explore at the Folk Museum along the glen, or enjoy a great day out visiting some of the surrounding towns and villages, such as Edzell, Ballater or Pitlochry.

About the location

Renowned as the Jewel in the Crown of Angus, the Victorian village of Edzell is beautifully situated at the foothills of the Grampian Mountains, 12 miles from the coastal town of Montrose. Entered via the striking 19th Century Dalhousie Arch, which greets tourists arriving from the south, this charming village provides a good choice of local shops, pubs and eateries and easy access to all five glens of Angus. The medieval Edzell Castle, with its prominent Stirling Tower and colourful renaissance garden is well worth a visit, whilst golfers are well catered for with two fabulous courses (18 and 9 hole) set amongst a stunning mountainous backdrop. Enjoy salmon fishing at nearby Esk and Westwater, take relaxed riverside strolls along the Rocks of Solitude circuit or the more challenging hikes in Glen Clova and Glen Esk. Discover the glorious beaches at nearby St Cyrus, Montrose and the fabulous, cliff-framed red sands at Lunan Bay.
