  • "The Roofspace is beautifully appointed and very comfortable."

    We felt very welcomed and had a wonderful week birding around the area.

  • "This holiday accommodation is very attractive, beautifully designed and in a lovely situation."

    It is very comfortable, immaculately clean and the owners are very helpful. I would strongly recommend anyone wishing to stay there to try and book it through another agent. Unfortunately, the negative feedback above is entirely due to Sykes. As advised previously I will never use Sykes again, due to mis-information and obstructiveness at the start of the Covid-19 epidemic.

  • "We loved it, the convenience of the towns around was a life savour and the book with things to do really allowed us to explore the surroundings."

    Sally was incredibly helpful, welcoming and cheerful and we would definitely come back in the future. P.S. the raspberry muffins were incredible!

  • "50th Birthday getaway."

    The Roofspace is a truly wonderful place to stay, Sally and Fergus are the perfect hosts, lovely friendly people and nothing is too much trouble. The muffins really are as nice as everyone else says! The Roofspace was immaculate and has everything you need, such a peaceful location the grounds are beautiful and we loved watching the dear graze outside the bedroom. We had an amazing spectacle of a murmuration of Jackdaws on several evenings right above the accommodation. It is a perfect base for exploring and there are so many walks within a short drive. The surrounding countryside is stunning, also amazing beaches a coves close by. Dunnottar Castle is well worth a visit and we were lucky enough to watch a large pod of dolphins pass by whilst we were there. After a long day out for my birthday Sally and Fergus surprised us on our return with some lovely treats which was a really nice touch and was a perfect end to a great day. Can highly recommend the Roofspace we will definitely return here next year.

    Immaculately clean and comfortable, we couldn't have asked for anything better. Hosts Sally and Fergus couldn't do enough for us and all those other comments about the raspberry muffins were absolutely true - not to forget the delicious homemade ice cream! Honestly, a brilliant cottage!

    Sally and Fergus were great we loved the chocolate and raspberry muffins that Sally had left for us upon arrival. The accommodation was cleaned to a high standard and was well equipped for our stay, bonus was seeing the deer in the garden nearly every day. Location was fantastic, not far from coast and the cairngorms national park so best of both worlds, the scenery is just spectacular, Sally and Fergus also had very good knowledge of the area and reccomended walks etc. Overall we absolutely loved our stay and would definitely reccomend for a nice couples retreat, lovely and quiet and close to nature. We would definitely return again.

    The roofspace was great..Spotless cosy and in a great location. Sally and Fergus were so kind nothing was a problem. Although you are close to their house you would never know they were there. The Roofspace is alot bigger than the pictures make out. Heating is great had to open the windows most nights! If we were returning to this area I would certainly return to this holiday property.

    It's situation , a few hundred yards from the main road and in a very rural area, meant that it was very peaceful and secure. For me it was ideally located for access to the Angus Glens and mountains where I was able to complete some good walks. All facilities as described and of a high standard.

    Gorgeous countryside, beautifully finished and decorated accommodation and friendly, helpful owners on the doorstep.

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.
