By Wyndham Vacation Rentals


Angus lays to the north of the Firth of Tay in the east of Scotland, with mountains and glens in the north, low-lying hills to the south and an untouched coast line that offers a region of contrasts and beauty.

In fact there’s natural beauty in abundance in this glorious corner of Scotland, which can be enjoyed at its best when you stay in a holiday cottage. Angus offers so much of what makes holidaying in Scotland special; it was here that the Scottish Declaration of Independence was signed, so it could be considered Scotland’s birthplace!

Apart from the magnificent ruins of Arbroath Abbey, site of the independence signing in 1320, the history of Angus is also proudly displayed at Glamis Castle. The former residence of the Queen Mother, Glamis offers a fascinating history as well as some beautiful grounds to explore.

For the ultimate in peaceful contemplation head for the beach at Lunan Bay, one of Angus’ best kept secrets, this delightful beach offers a lovely long stretch of quiet golden sand and expansive views over the waters.

The unspoilt surrounds of Angus make it the perfect oasis for holidaymakers seeking peace and tranquillity; you can visit Corrie Fee, a magnificent rocky amphitheatre shaped by glaciers and enjoy the incredible views, maybe glimpse a golden eagle or buzzard soaring overhead, or a herd of wild deer in the woodland.

A variety of stunning landscapes, varied wildlife and bustling towns make for a fantastic holiday for outdoor enthusiasts, nature lovers, history buffs and those after a little bit of fresh air and relaxation on their break.

It’s a destination that caters for a wide cross section of visitors. The mountainous northern region is a haven for skiing enthusiasts in the winter months and hill-walkers in summer. Take a trip to the coast and you’ll find coastal villages and the renowned ‘Arbroath Smokies’ (smoked fish).

A day trip to Angus’ principal city, Dundee, is well worthwhile for its great shopping and visitor attractions that tell of a rich maritime history and heritage.

Many choose a self-catering cottage holiday as it provides the perfect base for exploring the region and somewhere they can relax in their own space. Take a look at our selection of holiday cottages in Angus to find your perfect retreat.

  • West Newton Farmhouse

    Near Inverkeilor

    Ref: CC525011
    This wonderfully comfortable detached holiday home is set in the owner’s grounds which is a Highland Pony stud farm. The farmhouse is set in a private area surrounded by fields and trees yet close to all amenities. Totally refurbished to a very good standard, it provides generously proportioned rooms and lots of places for a family to spread out in comfort. The rural location is ideal for exploring the area – the pretty village of Auchmithie with its renowned restaurant serving local produce is well worth a visit, or cycle to lovely Lunan Bay (four miles), with its stretch of golden sand and café, again serving locally sourced fayre. Arbroath is just three miles away with a good selection of shops, eateries and seaside funfair. Visit Arbroath Harbour with fishing and boat tours and the Signal Tower Museum with its history of Arbroath lighthouse keepers. Inland, the Angus Glens beckon the keen walker, while golfers are spoilt for choice, with many courses in the vicinity, not least Carnoustie’s famous Links. For wildlife, the nearby RSPB Montrose Wildlife Basin is well worth a visit to watch flocks of geese in early autumn mornings, and history lovers are spoiled for choice, with the House of Dun (National Trust for Scotland), Restenneth Priory and Arbroath Abbey all nearby.

  • Binns Farmhouse

    Fowlis, near Dundee

    Ref: UK5181
    Situated at the end of a quiet road, next to a working farm (no unaccompanied children allowed), this rambling farmhouse is great for families or groups, with plenty of space for everyone. It is an old Victorian farmhouse built around 1850 with 3ft thick walls to keep the weather out in the winter months, and the cool in, in the summer months. There are two staircases, with the back one being used by the maids in the olden times, perfect for a midnight raid on the fridge down near the kitchen area. It has been furnished in the style of its period, keeping its Victorian farmhouse character. A snug off the kitchen makes a great TV room for the children, while the large dining room seats 10 in comfort. The warm and comfortable interior is complemented by a 2-acre garden. Beyond is a large orchard bisected by a stream, with hidden areas – ideal for hide and seek! Planting at Binns Farmhouse is wildlife friendly, and the grounds have many visitors including migrating birds, toads, voles, hedgehogs, deer, unusual moths and butterflies. Trees and plants can produce seeds and berries at certain times of the year that attract the wildlife - but not all berries can be eaten!
