Angus

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.

    Ref: UK5065
    This detached former fisherman’s bothy is one of a small group of houses in a wonderful seaside location, accessed by a rough track and with the stunning beach just yards away. The cottage is quaint and quirky. It is a genuine converted working bothy, with the comfortable living room and kitchen open plan to each other, and a separate bedroom and bathroom. The wood burner adds further to the cosy atmosphere, where you can relax in comfort after a day out walking or taking in the sea air. The house is sheltered by the sand dunes, and just beyond is the magnificent 3-mile crescent of sand which makes up Lunan Bay, one of the finest beaches in Scotland.
    The beach is popular with surfers, horse riders and bird watchers. Traditional salmon fishing still takes place here in summertime, with nets strung from poles on the beach to trap fish in the falling tide. The Lunan Water meanders onto the beach in a beautiful estuary. High on a grassy bluff overlooking the river and bay are the ruins of Red Castle, built in the 1200s for King William of Scotland. There is a café 220 yards away offering locally produced food, which is great for breakfast or snacks after a spell on the beach. Further afield, but still within easy reach, the towns of Montrose and Arbroath are well worth a visit, while the Angus Glens offer miles of walking in peace and quiet in total contrast to the beach scenery. In the wider area are many notable places for visits such as Glamis Castle. Shop and pub 5 miles, restaurant 3 miles.

    Ground Floor: All on ground floor.
    Open plan living space. With wooden floor.

    Delve into the past and explore the history of Glamis and its castle, the legendary setting of Shakespeare’s ’Macbeth’. Hecklers’ House is one of the traditional 18th-century cottages which make up the centre of this quaint village. With its stone walls, sash and case windows, it is typical of this quaint village. The name comes from the textile trade and the Jute industry in Dundee, where to heckle was to tease or comb out flax or hemp fibres before they were spun. When Hecklers’ House was built, the industry was thriving in Dundee, but there was a flax mill in Glamis where the majority of the villagers worked. The cottage is warm and very comfortable and a short walk from the famous castle, home of the late Queen Mother. Its fascinating history will tempt you back more than once to explore its mysterious rooms and secrets. The detached cottage is also well placed for touring the magnificent countryside, nestling in the heart of the scenic Vale of Strathmore. Visit one of the five Angus Glens on the doorstep for excellent hillwalking and unsurpassed views, or on the other side of the Vale, there are the wonderful unspoilt sandy beaches of Lunan Bay, St Cyrus and Montrose, which are great for family days out. In the village itself, there is a hotel serving good food as well a cosy traditional pub with an open fire, and a small shop and post office. Further amenities are found in nearby Forfar and Kirriemuir (birthplace of J M Barrie of ’Peter Pan’ fame) and there are several golf courses within an hour’s drive, including St Andrews, Carnoustie and Rosemount.

In its midst, these six characterful holiday cottages each offer a unique and magical holiday retreat; indeed the creator of Peter Pan himself (Sir James Barrie) was born in nearby Kirriemuir and holidayed here.
    These cottages were once occupied by shepherds, gardeners or other staff of the Ogilvy family when this was a traditional Victorian sporting estate. Red squirrels play in the trees, otters frequent the burns, and deer graze all around. Because of the varied scenery, that varies from beech woods to forest, pasture to heather moor, mountain streams to river pools, the area enjoys a spectacular range of wildlife, including species largely extinct elsewhere in Britain, such as black game and ptarmigan.
    Magnificent walking, bird-watching, mountain biking and (in season) cross-country skiing abound on the estate and, further afield, downhill skiing at Glen Shee (25 miles). Fishing is available on a 5-mile stretch of the River Prosen, and there are twenty golf courses within an hours’ drive.

    Tucked away at the end of a quiet street in Broughty Ferry, Willow Tree Cottage is the last of a row of three accessed by a private little path, just yards away from a clean sandy beach and the sea at the end of the Tay estuary. It is very convenient for the little station at Balmossie which operates a service once a day between Carnoustie and Dundee. Its delightful location makes it a wonderfully peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of modern life, yet within easy access of the pristine beach and ancient castle, lively pubs, cafés and restaurants, and quality boutiques for which the area is renowned. The cottage is chic, stylish and very comfortable with an appealing layout ideal for couples or families. There is a small garden area, ideal for the grandparents or teenagers to enjoy their own space while the lovely enclosed Mediterranean style courtyard at the rear is perfect for alfresco relaxation.

    Broughty Ferry is considered the ’jewel in Dundee’s crown’, it’s fine seafront esplanade and sweeping sands provide the perfect place for a relaxing stroll or a quiet picnic. An ideal choice for small ‘his ’n’ hers’ golf parties, it also offers visitors the perfect base from which to enjoy some of the finest golf courses to be found anywhere in the world. There are several courses in and immediately surrounding the city as well as being just seven miles from the famous Carnoustie Golf Links and 16 miles from St. Andrews’ courses, home to the British Open 2015. Barnhill Rock Garden is well worth a visit and for walkers there are the great Angus Glens just waiting to be explored. In the city itself are numerous parks, gardens and museums as well as cinemas, excellent theatres and shopping outlets. Willow Tree Cottage is an ideal base for exploring this wonderful area and one visit will not be enough!
