This stunning high quality conversion, with a beautifully designed interior, is an ideal house for families or couples.

The area is a perfect holiday destination with a wide variety of activities and amenities available for all ages. The spectacular beaches of Lunan Bay and the Montrose Basin are within easy driving distance and are a great treat, both in the summer and winter.
If you are looking to play some golf then Letham Grange golf course is only a mile away and can be reached on foot. A short drive will take you to one of several excellent local courses and both the Championship courses of Carnoustie and St Andrews are less than an hour's drive. There are opportunities for both sea and river fishing, cycling, hillwalking, skiing in the winter at Glenshee and you can even learn to traction kite at Lunan Bay. The area is also rich in historic interest with Hospitalfield House 10 minutes away and Glamis Castle and Scone Palace both well worth a visit.
The old fishing town of Arbroath is famous for its Arbroath smokies - wander down to the picturesque harbour and see them being hot smoked in the traditional way. The visitor centre at the impressive Arbroath Abbey explains the importance of the 14th century Declaration of Arbroath and how it has affected Scotland's history. There is a lot to see and do in Dundee, all year round; you can visit Captain Scott's Antarctic expedition ship Discovery, the Verdant Works, or McManus Galleries. Dundee also offers good restaurants, theatres and the Dundee Contemporary Arts centre for a taste of modern day culture.
