Stylish period lodge located in a private position, within easy reach of the seashore. Enjoy cosy romantic nights, in front of the wood burner after a day out exploring the stunning local area.

Enjoying a peaceful setting within a mile of the sandy beach of East Haven, this luxurious romantic retreat is perfect for couples seeking an idyllic getaway from which to explore the Scottish coastline and countryside. Step on to the Angus Coastal Path to discover quaint fishing villages and picturesque coves. Head out to the Angus Glens for a day walking the majestic landscape. For golf enthusiasts, the world-famous course at Carnoustie is less than 3 miles away, with many more in the vicinity.

Your cosy white-washed cottage has a light and airy interior, with open-plan living space decorated in restful tones and windows overlooking the gardens. The traditional wood burner makes the lounge area an inviting space to relax and unwind together as you sit and chat with a wee dram of whisky.

Entering your luxurious romantic retreat from the pretty garden, step into the bright and spacious open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Rustle up flavoursome feasts in the bespoke kitchen area to share at the cosy dining area overlooking the garden. Cuddle up on the sumptuous sofa in the evening to watch a film, or just relax as the logs crackle in the wood burner. When it’s time for slumber, freshen up in the stylish shower room, complete with rain shower, before snuggling up in your comfortable double bed looking out over the countryside.

Ideal for al fresco dining or simply enjoying the views with a local ale or glass of wine, your fully enclosed front garden has a lovely seating area for you to spend summer evenings at. Light the BBQ and grill some locally caught seafood for your supper and watch the wildlife that visits the garden.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 1 shower room
  • Electric oven and hob, dishwasher, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and coffee machine

Outdoor enthusiasts are spoilt for choice with the activities available near the cottage. The East Haven coastline (0.5 miles) offers scenic coastal walks and long sandy beaches for rock pooling and shoreline strolls. Stroll through the historic fishing village of East Haven admiring the award-winning flower displays and watching the fishermen haul in their catches. Follow the coast path to Carnoustie (3 miles) where you will find more than just golf on offer. Sailing, windsurfing and fishing are all available in the bay or dive into the clear waters for an invigorating swim.

Enjoy the scenic surroundings with a day spent at Monikie Country Park (7.5 miles). Take a leisurely stroll around the two former reservoirs or wander through the beautiful woodland and parkland. Hire a rowboat for a relaxing trip across the water or for something more active, why not try kayaking or dinghy-sailing? Test your head for heights on the High Ropes course or spot wetland birds at Denfind Bird Sanctuary within the park.

Lace up your walking boots for days spent hiking the Angus Glens where you will find heather-clad hills and an abundance of wildlife. Glen Clova (32 miles) is a hillwalker's delight, with routes for all abilities. Find the perfect picnic spot on a ramble to tranquil Loch Brandy or challenge yourself with a hike to the summit of Snub. Further afield, the mountain resort of Glenshee (51 miles) offers year-round activities. During the summer months, walk or mountain bike the rugged terrain and in the winter, spend the day skiing or snowboarding the many slopes and runs.

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.
