Enjoy a stay in a regal manor home in the heart of Angus, filled with unique antique furnishings, traditional-style elements and historic oil paintings.

Tucked away in a private historical estate, this regal 13-person manor in Glamis, Forfar exudes luxury and refinery. Unpretentiously opulent and authentic to its core, it offers a truly remarkable escape for discerning guests looking for equal doses of leisure and pleasure. Don boots and jackets and head out into the encompassing countryside to embrace the great outdoors by day, before returning home to lounge within this property’s welcoming walls, sipping Scottish whisky by the open fire.

Sharing Royal connections, this resplendent manor house has been exquisitely refurbished and is bedecked with sumptuous trimmings and timeless antiques. Elegant and comfortable, it provides the perfect base for families and friends to enjoy an Austen-esque affair in the heart of Scottish countryside. Offering something and somewhere for all generations to feel at home (including your four-legged friend), hours will fly by relaxing in the therapy pool, cooking up local bangers and mash in the kitchen and hunkering down in the lounge for a family game of trivia.

While the resident chefs among your party will rejoice in the well-equipped kitchen with central island, mums with little ones will appreciate the breakfast room – the ideal space for children’s meals. Of course, if you don’t feel like cooking at all, catering can be offered by the estate for some or all of your stay. For family meals, the dining room awaits, while next door the lounge with lovely views over the garden is a great place to enjoy the crackle of an open fire.

Sat on the ground floor, the property’s first bedroom comprises a family suite with a double bedroom, en-suite bathroom with bath and shower and a twin bedroom that is accessed from the main. Upstairs, the master bedroom has a large en-suite shower room and a dressing room and there is also a king-sized bedroom with en-suite shower room. To complete the picture, you will also find a single bedroom on the first floor and two twin/king zip-and-link bedrooms, both with en-suites.

Equally as dreamy on crisp mornings, balmy afternoons and star-studded nights, the property’s private grounds simply beg to be explored. Accessed through electric gates and offering ample parking, you can leave your car at home and simply enjoy the tranquillity, picnicking under the sun and playing games on the soft grass. Especially handy with young children in tow, the property’s enclosed, walled garden creates a stress-free safe haven.

Please note there is a refundable £500 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

Whether you can't wait to trace sandy footprints along the shore of an empty beach, walk through Scottish glens or polish your putting skills at the nearby golf courses, there is something for everyone nearby. Idyllically located for savouring the peace and quiet yet with the advantage of a great village pub half a mile away, all bases are covered.

Staying in the area, one of the first things you should do is visit Glamis Castle. With over 1000 years of history betwixt its towering walls, this impressive castle was the setting for Shakespeare's Macbeth and the childhood home of the H. M. Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother. With castle and gardens open daily and hosting a number of events throughout the year, it's definitely one for the bucket list.

For a breath of sea air, the coastal towns of Carnoustie and Arbroath are 17 and 19 miles away respectively, while Scotland's fourth largest city, Dundee, is only 12.5 miles away should you wish to dip into city life for a while. With more walking tours, sights, eateries and, most importantly, breweries than you could possibly visit in one trip, there will be more than enough to keep you intrigued.

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.
