The property

Laurencekirk 4.4 miles.

A mid-terrace farm cottage, 2 Pittengardner Cottage is a quaint and homely abode, ideally positioned for a holiday in close reach of the coast.

Wonderfully suited to a family of four or a couple in pursuit of a romantic retreat, this cottage offers the ultimate home-from-home from which to discover Scotland.

The living/dining room is a pleasant place to spend your time when you're not out exploring, with a plump sofa to sit on amongst the woodburning stove, unwind with a good book and a chilled drink, before sitting around the table together and enjoying the delicious home-cooked meal prepared by the chef of the group.

Although modest, the kitchen is equipped with all essential appliances, as well as offering access to the gravelled garden where your canine companions can enjoy playing freely while you watch over them.

Up on the first floor sit both a snug double and a twin room, a layout wonderfully suited to a family of four.

Also on the first floor is the bathroom, letting you choose from either an indulgent soak or a refreshing shower to start your day of adventure.

Pack up a picnic and head out to explore the local village of Fordoun by foot, or for a wider selection of amenities, nearby Laurencekirk is home to another pub, coffee shop, chip shop and Indian restaurant, providing you with eateries of all kinds as well as a local shop so you can prepare your own tasty treats.

Take advantage of the North South railway line which departs from Laurencekirk to even the major city of Edinburgh.

Further afield is the port City of Aberdeen, known as the 'Granite City' due to its grey stone buildings, offering one of the world's top-rate coastlines, a plethora of golfing opportunities, an enticing maritime museum, an amusement park and much more to keep the whole family entertained.

For an outdoor experience including plenty of walking, cycling and climbing opportunities, there's no better way to discover Scotland than the Grampian Mountains, or return to your quaint cottage for a relaxing evening in with loved ones.

Also for fishing enthusiasts there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy at the major rivers of North Esk and South Esk.

Surrounded by so much excitement, 2 Pittengardner Cottage makes a brilliant base at any time of year.

About the location

LAURENCEKIRK

Edzell 9 miles; Aberdeen 30 miles; Dundee 36 miles.

The market town of Laurencekirk was originally known by the name of Conveth and this is believed to relate to an obligation to offer free food and lodging to passing troops. It sits in the area known as The Howe o’ the Mearns – meaning the wide valley of the Mearns (the former county between Aberdeenshire and Angus). It has a wide range of amenities from supermarkets and butchers to pubs, bakers and a Post Office. There is much to attract the tourist to the area, including Arbuthnott House with its walled garden, superb walking in Denlethen Wood or on the forest trails of Drumtochty. The nearby Edzell golf club caters for all abilities with its challenging 18 hole woodland course as well as a 9 hole course and a driving range. No visit to the area would be complete without sampling the water of life at nearby Fettercairn Distillery or a visit to the centre commemorating noted writer Lewis Grassic Gibbon, who set many of his books in this area.
