Visitors have lots of great attractions and activities in the local area to keep them entertained and happy. There are Denlethen Woods to explore and the Cairn O' Mount with its breathtaking viewpoint. A visit to the spectacular Dunnottar Castle is not to be missed. When it comes to castles you will be spoilt for choice in Aberdeenshire - Royal Deeside is closeby and the Castle Trail provides a fascinating day trip. There is also Stonehaven’s Open Air Pool – with heated clean sea water which makes for a special and exhilerating dip! The nearby pretty villages of Fettercairn and Edzell are delightful to stroll around.
If you like a dram or two there is the Fettercairn Distillery (one of Scotland's oldest and nestled at the foot of the Cairngorms), which offers guided tours and a chance to sample its fine malt whisky. The Grassic Gibbon Centre at nearby Arbuthnott celebrates the life and works of the local Mearns novelist and author of the Sunset Song (one of the most popular Scottish novels) - there's also an excellent cafe! The beautiful Montrose Basin is well worth a visit and its visitors centre is popular with all ages.
The cottage is just 7 miles from the beautiful St Cyrus beach - one of many blue flag beaches in the area and usually very empty. If you prefer to be more active then there are many excellent golf courses nearby and at Auchenblae there is a small 9 hole golf course known locally for being a bit demanding! You are surrounded by beautiful countryside so there is plenty to do for the outdoor enthusiast - fishing, cycling, riding, sailing and hill walking to name just a few activities available.
