Set in the Vale of Strathmore in the unspoilt Scottish county of Angus, this is a really charming holiday cottage between Kirriemuir and Blairgowrie. There are six 18 hole golf courses within 10 miles - Rosemount (at Blairgowrie), Alyth, Strathmore, Glenisla, Kirriemuir and Forfar. Skiing at Glenshee is nearby and there is also great fishing and hillwalking. Pitlochry with its excellent theatre is only 40 minutes drive, Perth and Dundee are nearer. 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. With ne'er a clogged road in sight, in half an hour you can either be beach-combing along sweeps of white sand or climbing in nearby mountains, either way you will be bathed in clean, clear air.

Experience the pre-war shopping feel in the 'Peter Pan' little market town of Kirriemuir, birthplace of J M Barrie. Stroll over cobbled streets to visit the local butcher/fishmonger, ironmonger, baker, a real sweetie shop and an old fashioned barber. The owner lives nearby and is happy to provide local information about off-the-beaten-track places to visit or eat: a renowned tartan shop (not a tourist in sight), bric-a-brac, markets for antiques and food, farm shops and indeed will give you a quick short cut into the swing of local life.

Strathmore is justly famous for its lush farmland growing raspberries, strawberries, cereals and home to Aberdeen Angus cattle. A few miles to the north are a trio of spectacular Angus Glens evocatively named Glenisla, Glenprosen and Glenclova, all wonderful walking country.
