Set in the Vale of Strathmore in the unspoilt Scottish countryside, this is a really charming holiday cottage between Kirriemuir and Blairgowrie. It is beautifully decorated with great taste - the owner is a well-known garden designer so the cottage garden is stunning too and is the most beautiful place to sit in a summer's evening admiring the flowers or having a barbeque. The cottage is stylish, yet cosy, and a perfect place for a honeymoon in Scotland, or a romantic break for a couple. The Angus coast isn't far away and has some stunning white sandy beaches.
The owner lives nearby and is happy to provide local information about off-the-beaten track places to eat and visit. There are five 18 hole golf courses within 10 miles - Rosemount (at Blairgowrie), Alyth, Strathmore, Glenisla and Kirriemuir; and skiing at Glenshee is nearby. There is also great fishing and hillwalking in the Angus Glens. Pitlochry with its excellent theatre is only 30 minutes drive, as is Perth and Dundee. Glamis Castle (childhood home of the late Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother) is just a few miles away and is one of Scotland's most fascinating castles. Kirriemuir was the birthpace of J M Barrie, and this small market town has a feel of times past with excellent local shops.
