Fantastic place to stay, highly recommended.
Liked · What a great place to stay, a gem. The accommodation is, throughout, beautifully presented, my room was fantastic and the bed was very comfy. My room didn't have the benefit of an en-suite but the bathroom was close by and like everything else in the premises was of the highest standard. Breakfast the following morning was freshly cooked, again I'll use the phrase 'beautifully presented' and the added bonus was the spectacular views across the nearby valley below. The proprietor, Ian, was very friendly and made me feel extremely welcome.
There are lovely walks from the house up through the woods to Balmashanner Tower with fantastic views of Forfar to the Angus hills and glens.
Forfar is also within easy walking distance and has excellent supermarkets, pubs, parkland and a loch for walks, sports centre, farmers market, traditional bakers and cafes. There are pitch & put, driving range and 18 hole golf course facilities in Forfar too, along with tennis courts and other leisure facilities.
There are a wide variety of eateries from basic to exceptional local cuisine which we can recommend to you during your stay.
Near by we have the Queen Mother's historic home, Glamis Castle (5 miles), excellent fishing at Rescobie Loch (5 miles) and the River South Esk (15 miles).
The Angus Glens (20 miles) are superb for walking and the beautiful sandy beach at Montrose (19 miles) is easy to access by car or public transport for some fresh sea air!
The pretty costal town of Arbroath (16 miles) is the home to a 12C Abbey and is where Robert the Bruce wrote the "Declaration of Arbroath" to the Pope in 1320.
The cities of Dundee, Perth, Stirling, Edinburgh and Glasgow are all easily accessible by car or public transport.
