This charming farmhouse retreat is packed with character and perfectly placed for adventures in Aberdeenshire and Angus

This stunning property in the central Highlands makes an ideal country escape for city slickers. Situated on the edge of Capo Forest, between the vibrant cities of Aberdeen and Dundee, it’s the perfect place for a quiet trip away with family or a small group of friends..

The property itself is a gorgeous old farmhouse with an elegant, classic stone facade set amongst romantic, mature grounds. The interior showcases the best of Highland country style with original period features such as stone hearths and exposed beams, blended with sleek, contemporary touches.

Enter through the magnificent entrance to discover the main reception area, a lovely sitting room with wood burner and plenty of logs to fuel you through the cooler evenings. The kitchen and dining space has a sweet, modern-meets-country feel, with a beautiful tile floor leading from the kitchen into a conservatory-style dining room, the ideal spot to enjoy a home-cooked meal under the shadow of the breathtaking Highland scenery.

Upstairs on the first floor you’ll find the bedrooms, a collection of beautifully presented rooms with views overlooking the fields and hills. The master is a romantic double room with en-suite and there is a gorgeous little single and two charming twins where pals can stay up chatting late into the night.

The outdoor space of this farmhouse is just as gorgeous as the inside, with a surrounding lawn, mature trees and plants, and a gravel patio and driveway area with seating, perfect for al fresco breakfasts in the crisp Highland air. There is also a firepit with benches all around as well as a hot tub for nights at home. Relax under the bubbles as the sun goes down over the sweeping Highland landscape, dreaming of adventures to come.

The property is ideally located to take advantage of the stunning surrounding scenery. The forest that inspired the house's name sits just behind the complex of cottages; it is encircled by the North and South Esk, where you can enjoy a winding riverside walk or try your hand at fishing. Walks, cycle rides, canoeing and pretty much any other country pursuit you could image can be enjoyed in this slice of the Central Highlands - there's something for everyone in the immediate vicinity, whether you're feeling active or just want to relax a little.

There are also decent golf courses nearby, including one at Montrose 10 miles away, where holes overlooking the sea mean that you can tee off with a view. Combine a morning of golf with a walk around the town of Montrose itself, where the South River Esk pools before it tips into the North Sea. Pop into the museum and art gallery, and browse the quaint shops and eateries where you can sample some of the local style and flavours. A scenic 10-mile drive brings you to the lovely, rugged Angus coastline, where you'll find beaches, caves and coves, rock pools, and seaside villages that will remind you of a different place in time.

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
