  • "A wonderful two weeks at White Hillocks in such beautiful surroundings, comfort and cottage!"

    We loved the views each morning of the Cairngorms from the lounge window and watching the sun set each evening.

    Immaculate inside. Such a lovely base for exploring. Thank you for providing a high chair and cot for our little one. Saved some valuable space in the car.

    We couldn’t stop looking out of one of the bedroom windows watching the red squirrels!!!! If you want tranquility then this is the place for you. Next time husband says the fishing rods are being packed. First time in Scotland for our 17, 15 and 14yrs old children and they are already asking when can we go back!!!!!

  • "We had a lovely stay at the farm cottage."

    Such a nice and remote area, with a view from the living room window which was amazing. Such a nice area, loads of walking and places to explore. There is so much to do in the area, we will definitely be back to stay again. The cottage was very spacious, clean and well equipped with a nice fenced garden for the dog to enjoy. It was lovely to meet the owner Hazel, who provided a nice welcoming gift basket.

  • "Fantastic setting, was just the right amount of remote - exactly what was needed 7 days without phones or tech just the countryside."

    Outstanding views from the cottage. There is something for everyone, we had two children and two dogs and walked over 30 miles in 6 days - a mix of level walks through the glens and a climb to loch brandy is a must. Neveland park and obscure are about 15 minutes away in Kirriemuir alone with the oldest sweet shop in Scotland.

  • "My wife, dog and I enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing week in the heart of Scotland at the lovely Whitehillocks cottage."

    From the moment we arrived, we were amazed at the beauty of the location and very impressed by the little touches the owners put in place for us. The welcome gifts, the card and the basket of logs were certainly well received. This was a stunning location and out stay was of equal comfort and enjoyment. Well worth the long drive! Thank you!

  • "This is the second time we have stayed at Whitehillocks."

    Love the new flooring throughout, makes the cottage feel warmer. Lovely welcome hamper there on arrival which even included some lovely treats for our dog. Hazel had even written us a beautiful card for our stay. We really love coming here. Beautiful views even when the weather isn’t great. It’s so quiet which is what keeps us going back. We enjoyed so many wonderful walks in and around Glen Clova and Glen Esk. The Arbroath cliff trail is a must if you love the coast! Far enough away from Kirriemuir to not be caught up in town life but not too far away for the essentials. We got an Asda delivery the first night so it is accessible for the supermarket delivery. We will be returning again next year and we cannot wait!

    Hazel was really welcoming and helpful. We had a fab week exploring the glen, climbed Loch brandy and a few other walks. The river shown on the pictures is fabulous and only a short drive away. We spent a few afternoons paddling in it with the kids and dog. All in all great week and lovely cottage.

  • "This bungalow exceeded some of my expectations, it is well into Glen Clova, I had begun to fear it was nearer the local town than I wanted."

    Following the sat nav further and further into the countryside I was delighted. OK so there was no mobile signal, what do you expect so far out. There was WiFi, a little intermittent but for the most part a good speed. The bungalow was generally clean not spotless but good enough, the bathrooms were very clean. The building could have better presented externally. It was warm with CH and a log burner. Communication with the landlady by email was instant and helpful. We did not book a £800 / week cottage it was less than £500 and turned out to be very good value.

    Worth noting that there isn't a dvd player and the kitchen is a bit lacking in terms of not very many pans and no caffetiere! A folder with information on bin collection, places worth visiting etc would also be helpful. Generally a very nice place to have spent a week though and I would recommend it to others. Welcome pack was a very nice touch.

    The cottage is fantastic, surprisingly larger than we envisaged, beautifully decorated, furnished well and had everything we needed.... beds were super comfy! Lovely enclosed garden which was great for the dog and the wifi kept the teenage kids happy. We arrived late afternoon, the cottage was lit and lovely and warm, with a smashing welcome box for us and the dog. Location is stunning, lovely views and plenty of country walks in the surrounding area. We will definitely be returning!

  • "Had a really nice time at White Hillocks Cottage."

    We arrived early and the owners were very accommodating. The cottage itself was bigger than we thought it would be with plenty of room to spread out. We felt safe walking around the farm with our two girls, who loved riding their bikes around. There is plenty of room away from the road for this. The village is about 20 minutes away so not easily right on the doorstep, but it does give a nice sense of isolation. The people at the farmhouse had a Tesco's delivery so this is presumably an option to get groceries. There are plenty of walks and things to see, and we were fortune with the weather sitting in the sun most afternoons.

  • "The cottage was very comfortable and warm and had a dishwasher, fridge, freezer and washing machine, plus wi-fi."

    Not only was there a welcome box of Scottish food for the humans, but a bag of treats for the dog! The setting is on a farm with views of the hills on either side, with lots of room for parking. Although you can't see it on the photographs, the bathroom has a good shower as well as a bath. When we contacted the owners about a slight problem, they responded quickly and were very friendly. No hesitation in recommending Whitehillocks cottage for a stay, especially if you want to walk in Glen Clova. It is worth taking your own teatowels and dishwasher tablets, although there are some supplies under the sink.

  • "Oh my goodness."

    Where do I start. White Hillocks Cottage was lovely. It was just as we hoped. It was perfectly decorated and furnished. Bedding and towels supplied were luxurious. There was plenty of wood for the fire which was great. There was a welcome box which was lovely and even treats for the dogs. There were supplies of most things in the cupboard and a bottle of fresh milk too. It is such a rural location, surrounded by wildlife, cattle and game. Its about 6 miles down to Glen Clova and hills to climb to Corrie Fee. Its about 8 or 9 miles to Kirriemuir which is a sweet little town. Scotland completely captivated us and we will be back to White Hillocks.

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.
