Beautiful location. Amazing welcome package. Just be aware if mobility impaired, you have to take your suitcase down many steps to enter the cottage.

The property

Edzell 2.7 miles.

This quaint bungalow is set in a small gorge with a stream, in the hamlet of Lethnot near Edzell.

Surrounded by open Angus countryside, Margie Burn Cottage offers a delightful retreat for couples or a small family looking to break away from normal life and explore the beauty of the area.

Internally, the property boasts a traditional décor with plenty of homely touches throughout.

After a day of rambling the countryside, pop off your walking boots and take a seat on the plush sofa, browsing through the television or picking up a book from the shelf and beginning a good read.

Move into the kitchen/diner, providing all the necessities for preparing home-cooked meals, including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge and dishwasher, along with an alluring woodburning stove which offers a gentle warmth during mealtimes.

Relax within the conservatory as you overlook the garden or step outside and enjoy a drink at the table and chairs.

The double bedroom has access to the garden via French doors so you can begin each morning with a moment of fresh air before hopping in the shower for a refreshing start to the day.

Described as the ‘jewel in the crown of Angus’, the village of Edzell offers picturesque riverside walks through stunning scenery from Gannochy Bridge to the Rocks of Solitude, while you can also explore the sandstone ruins of Edzell Castle and the tower house, a fine example of a typical 16-century nobleman’s residence.

After building up an appetite, reward yourself with a bite at the local café or enjoy some traditional fish and chips at the Tuck Inn takeaway.

Nearby Fettercain is home to a popular distillery where you can sample refined Scotch whisky and slightly further afield is stunning Royal Deeside and the skiing venues of The Lecht and Glenshee.

This delightful abode is located just outside the Cairngorms National park and with the Anug Glens and the coast within striking distance, it is the ideal location to lose yourself in the scenic splendour of Scotland.

Margie Burn Cottage promises a tranquil escape, any time of year.

About the location


Montrose 12 miles; Forfar 14 miles; Dundee 31 miles.

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. Edzell offers an ideal base from which to discover all that this scenic area of Scotland has to offer.
