This charming self-catering cottage is situated in the delightful Angus countryside between Brechin and Edzell, the gateway to the glens. Ideally placed for shops and local facilities within 10 minutes drive. Whether you are interested in golf, fishing, hill walking, beach walks, cycling, historic sites, or even paint-balling, there are activities to please everyone. The world famous Carnoustie and St Andrews golf courses are just about an hour's drive and there are a range of quality golf courses only minutes away.

The area is rich in history and there are several sites of interest worth visiting. Glamis Castle is within half an hour's drive and nearby is the National Trust for Scotland's House of Dun. If reading and peace and quiet is what you crave, there is a good supply of books to choose from in the cottage and a variety of board games for the family.

The Hayloft at Wards of Keithock has a truly magical atmosphere, and is surrounded by wildlife. There are frequent sightings of red squirrels, roe-deer, woodpeckers and even kingfishers.

Both rooms have velux windows almost to floor level so that the lovely views can be enjoyed when lying in bed.
