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.

    "Acres of peaceful and secluded countryside surround these magnificent cottages..."

    At the heart of Glenprosen, one of the renowned ‘Glens of Angus’, lies the Balnaboth Estate on the edge of the Cairngorms National Park; 6,000 peaceful and secluded acres surrounding 16th-century Balnaboth House. 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.
    Enjoy the seclusion of this beautiful glen - peaceful, relaxing, scenic - yet just a few minutes’ drive from bustling market towns and busy fishing harbours which hug the Angus coastline, as well as from the city of Dundee which offers many attractions for all the family. The exciting Dundee Contemporary Arts is a stunningly-designed centre which incorporates galleries, a print studio and two art-cinema screens, while the Mills Observatory is Britain’s only full-time public observatory with a resident astronomer.
    Good road, rail and air access to Angus provide easy access from all parts of the UK or international destinations. Shop 9-10 miles.

    Set in splendid isolation on the high moor of the estate, this detached, single-storey cottage is a complete antidote to the stresses of the modern world. The only neighbours are the wild birds including golden eagles and deer that inhabit the beautiful countryside and there are stunning views all round the cottage. Ideal for walkers, with fantastic walks to the Munros of Dreish and Mayar from the doorstep, and for wildlife enthusiasts and those who need complete peace. Living room with dining area and open fire in stone surround. Steep step down to compact kitchen. Steep step up to double bedroom. Twin bedroom with additional single bed (for +1).
