    Wester Auchleuchrie sleeping up to 10 guests

    Set in a stunning rural location, this beautiful detached holiday property is the ideal base for a relaxing holiday with friends or family.
    S88119 can be found on the banks of the River South Esk and is ideally situated for exploring Carnoustie. Full of light and space, this wonderfully distinctive detached property has been uniquely furnished and styled with comfort firmly in mind. Ideal for families or friends, the interior is a striking mix of traditional and contemporary, with bright primary colours and bold light fittings on the ground floor contrasting with traditional furnishings in the first floor living room. The open plan L-shaped living and kitchen areas, separated by a stylish double sided wood burner, are ideal for guests to relax together. Full length windows, bi-fold and patio doors lead on to the terrace and provide almost 360 degree views of the garden and beyond. Having a ha-ha rather than a fence to separate the garden from the field leading down to the river provides uninterrupted views both up and down stream. Upstairs the decor is classically stunning. The four large bedrooms all offer lovely views and the two top floor double bedrooms have additional beds which can be moved around to suit occupancy - children may wish to share rooms or else have space of their own.

    For rainy days a selection of books and games, an additional TV and DVD player, a ball pit, air hockey table, wooden play kitchen and soft toys have been supplied. Babies and toddlers are also well catered for, with two cots and highchairs, fire guard, bouncy chair, children’s step, cutlery, plates, mugs and a sanitised nappy bin. Two bathrooms and two shower rooms, with monsoon shower heads and mirrors with shaver sockets will help you relax after a busy day exploring the surrounding area. Outside there are several separate areas of the garden to enjoy - a raised one at the rear of the house offers a fantastic view, seclusion and peace whilst part of the lawn is fully enclosed to allow children or pets to play. There is a river close by that does offer salmon or sea trout fishing.
    Although secluded, the property is only ¾ mile from The Drovers Inn, an excellent pub and restaurant, 5 miles from the historic town of Kirriemuir which was the birthplace of JM Barrie, and 6 miles from Forfar with its swimming pool and leisure centre. In the heart of Angus, there are numerous outdoor activities to enjoy from superb waking in the Angus Glens, fishing on the south Esk, golf at Kirriemuir, Forfar and Edzel, 16 miles, and Carnoustie, 21 miles, and of course enjoying the magnificent beaches at Lunan Bay and Montrose. Arbroath has an attractive harbour where you can sample the traditional smokies or visit the local whisky distillery at Fettercairn. If art and culture are important to you Dundee, Aberdeen and Perth all have museums, art galleries and theatres as well as many good restaurants. Glamis castle, where the late Queen Mother was born, is a popular attraction as are the several National Trust properties that are within easy reach. Crathes and Drum castles are only an hour or so away over the Cairn o’ Mount, which must be one of the most beautiful scenic routes in Scotland. Fishing can be arranged with Inshewan Estates for the beat by the house, and from Finavon Castle fishing further down river and Cortachy Estates just above. For loch fishing days can be arranged on Roscobie Loch and Lintrathen reservoir. Beach 23 miles. Shop 6 miles, pub and restaurant ¾ mile.

    John – 6 Nov 2018
    "Booked this for the annual family get together for 7 of us and 2 dogs. Cottage is in a fantastic location next to the river with views across the countryside. It's very modern inside with loads of space for us all and we loved the open plan ground floor with the bi-folding doors. It was very clean and warm. The owner met us on arrival and gave us a tour which was a nice touch. The furnishings are very comfy and the fire is great at night time. There is a walk along the river from the field at the back of the house which was great for the dogs as, apart from the sheep in the field at the house, the rest were fenced in. We also saw Red Kites. At night there is no light pollution so the stars look amazing.The house is perfectly situated for exploring the area. Kirriemuir is 10mins away and Forfar a little further. It took us just over half an hour to get to Lunan Bay which is a stunning beach. The Cairngorms provide the backdrop of the north view from the house and it only takes 30 - 40 mins to get to Glen Clova or Glen Doll where there are several walks, as well as access to the Cairngorm Plateau. Braemar was about 1hr and 15mins where we explored more walks and bagged a Munro. The house was perfect for us. Beautiful rural setting but close to shops and towns should we need it but likewise not far from areas where you can just spend the day walking and enjoying nature. The pub up the road does excellent food and has a steak night on Tuesdays."
