    “The cottage as only adequate and as such expensive for what it was.”


    to be specific: the toilet and shower room as extremely small and the shower cubicle particularly cramped. the only toilet was a long way through the house from the bedrooms. there was a combi boiler in one corner of one of the bedrooms and this fired up not only when hot water was requited but at odd times during rthe night as well. the chairs at the dining table were the wrong height for the table being too low and cushions were needed. we are of average to tall height. the lounge chairs were uncomfortable and the furnishings generally in the property has the feel of being a random section of used 'hand me downs' from other properties. the main bedroom had bare floor boards with only small mats it was difficult to find the password for the wifi - it would have been helpful to print it on the general instructions. also the hot water control on the boiler had been turned down and there were no instructions on how to address this - one had to use one's initiative!

About the property

Abroath 4.1 miles.

This welcoming, semi-detached bungalow rests in the fishing village of Auchmithie, close to the amenities of Abroath, on the picturesque Angus coast.

Blue Skies Cottage can accommodate for up to five guests and is a charming holiday base for exploring this scenic part of Scotland.

Step through the front door into the entrance hallway and pop off your walking boots and jackets before finding the sitting room.

Here you can lounge on the sofa whilst the woodburning stove heats up those cold feet, while the chef of the group can take to the kitchen to prepare a well-deserved feast.

There are two bedrooms at this Auchmithie cottage, including a king-size double and a family room with double and single bed.

Completing the interior is the shower room with walk-in shower, basin and WC.

The village stands above 120ft cliffs, which provides an elevated viewpoint over the North Sea, while below there is a pebble beach, an old and partly derelict harbour and some fascinating rock architecture.

There is superb walking and cycling along the coastal routes with superb views accompanying you, as well as the wide range of wildlife.

Take a 20 minute car drive to the stunning sandy beach at Lunan, a favourite with surfers and horse riders, there is a medieval castle and a cave to explore here.

Head into Arbroath and stroll along the sandy beaches as the taste of salty sea fills the aroma before dining at one of the first-class restaurants, including the The Old Boatyard restaurant which serves a delicious fresh seafood menu.

History buffs will love exploring the imposing Guthrie Castle, set in landscaped grounds and dating back to the 15th century, it provides a great opportunity to learn about the local heritage.

Further afield lies the bustling coastal city of Dundee, which benefits from access to a large number of art galleries and museums detailing Scotland's heritage.

Blue Skies Cottage is a lovely choice for a family or couple seeking a retreat to Scotland’s east coast.

About the location


Carnoustie 8 miles; Dundee 16 miles; St Andrews 30 miles.

An ancient port, Arbroath’s status as a town can be dated from 1178, when Arbroath Abbey was founded. The Abbey was subsequently consecrated in 1197 and there is a dedication to Saint Thomas Becket in the Abbey. The famous Declaration of Arbroath, the desire for Scottish self-determination, was signed in the Abbey in 1320. Arbroath’s influence grew over the subsequent centuries and particularly during the Industrial Revolution through the flax and jute industries, as well as fishing with the town boasting one of the largest fishing ports in Scotland by the 20th century. It is known for its long sandy beaches, as well as the Arbroath Smokie, with its haddock, traditionally salted overnight, dried, and then smoked over a hardwood fire. There are several traditional smokehouses around the harbour, with many well worth a visit, as well as excellent restaurants for fine dining. With lots of coastal walking and cycling, as well as golf courses and Carnoustie only 8 miles along the coast, there are plenty of attractions and activities in an around this lovely coastal town.
