    Upon arrival the owner of the cottage Hazel had left a welcome pack consisting of some juice, cheese and oatcakes, Tunnocks teacakes. Small gesture but a nice touch. The cottage is very spacious and nicely furnished, very comfortable. There is freeview TV and wifi - albeit a little sketchy, our firestick didnt work due to this. There are a selection of kids games and some books etc. There is a wood burning stove and enough kindling, fire starters provided to get you going for a few days if required - across from the cottage there is a log store with plenty of chopped wood. Reasonable sized fridge, 4 zone hob, grill / oven, dish washer and a washing machine in the cottage. Beds are new and comfy. Adult room doesnt have a wardrobe, only drawers. The kids room has drawers and tons of wardrobe space. Shower is good and ample warm water. The surrounding area is a haven for wildlife - there are scores of wild bird species and 3 barn owls in the immediate vicinity which we saw regularly. The woods across the road have an elusive Capercaillie. I continually heard a calling Golden eagle and eventually saw it right outside the cottage and couldnt get my phone out quick enough to get the photo!!!! There are sheep and cattle in many of the surrounding fields so adviseable to keep dogs on leads until you turn corners and have line of sight. The surrounding area is a heavenly place for dogs as there a thousands of wild rabbits and game birds to chase, our Labrador had a great time chasing them without any fatalities thankfully. Nearest shops are 10 miles away in Kirriemuir - there is a large Co-op which will have all you need and also a smaller Spar. One piece of advice is to keep the cottage gate closed as there are 4 sheep which have free run of the farm and when we arrived the garden had lots of sheep droppings, there are also some rabbit burrows in the garden which can we hard to see so be mindful of this to prevent accidents. This cottage is an ideal place to base yourselves as you are right on the doorstep of some phenominal walks within a short drive. I would stay here again no probs.

White Hillocks Farm

A pair of tastefully decorated, rural cottages set in the idyllic Glen Clova, seven miles from the burgh of Kirriemuir in Angus, Scotland. White Hillocks Farm is surrounded by wondrous hills and countryside with the Cairngorms National Park nearby, making it the perfect stay for a group of ramblers, cyclists or wildlife spotters to come and get away from it all. Both cottages are decorated in peacefully neutral colours, the comforting living areas make a delightful base for an outdoors holiday. The dining rooms and sitting rooms in the properties come with their own fires, making them highly appealing all-year-round. Bring your furry friends along with you as they can stretch their legs in your enclosed lawned garden, or the acres of countryside right on your doorstep. Reflect on the day's adventures in the immaculate bathrooms that come in each cottage. All of the bedrooms are pleasantly furnished, with White Hillocks Cottage boasting a triple room, perfect for families to stay in. White Hillocks Farm House offers a lovely king-size double bedroom on the ground floor, ideal for those with limited mobility. Despite being in a rural setting, a short drive takes you to the well-stocked town of Kirriemuir, offering a wide range of amenities and plenty to keep you busy from museums and art galleries to golf and the birthplace of J M Barrie to discover. Slightly further afield is the marvellous city of Dundee, with elite shopping, wonderful buildings and much to do. Two lovely cottages in a fabulous location.

About the location

KIRRIEMUIR

Dundee 18 miles, Aberdeen 55.2 miles

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 an Aviation Museum, 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.
