Located at the foot of the Angus Glens and just metres away from the North Esk River, this traditional stone cottage is the perfect place for a family getaway.

A beautiful and spacious cottage on the banks of the River Esk, with space for six over three bedrooms, this property has the option of booking the neighbouring property for an extra two sleeping spaces. The cottage has spacious rooms inside, making it easy to relax with lots of room for adults and kids to find their own space. The 2-acre walled garden is a beautiful place to explore and enjoy, and it even has its own tennis court. The cottage is perfectly placed for exploring some of the best of the Scottish countryside, with the rugged Angus coast within reach and hill climbing on the Munros and the Cairngorms. It is also just a mile from the village of Edzell, where you’ll find pubs and shops.

 

Inside, you enter through the sun porch and into the entrance hall. Doors lead from there to the elegant living room, which has an open fire and comfortable sofas. Double doors lead to the dining room, creating a flexible space, and then into the kitchen, which has ample food prep space, a breakfast bar and a range cooker. There is a separate TV snug, sunroom, laundry room and office. On the first floor there are three bedrooms, all with zip-and-link beds that can be set up as either a double or twin. Two of the bedrooms have an en-suite shower room, and there is a family bathroom as well.

 

Outside, the secluded garden has a summerhouse, pond, lawns and mature borders and shrubs. The tennis court can be accessed by arrangement. There is ample parking.

The River Esk runs along the property's border and offers fantastic riverside walks. Fishing on the river can be arranged, 3 miles away from the house, where salmon can be seen leaping in the river.

The local village, Edzell, is known as one of the prettiest in Angus. Its main street is made up of attractive 19th-century buildings, many of which are now antique shops and tearooms. Around a mile from the village centre is the ruined Edzell Castle. While the building itself is ruined, the 17th-century garden is a favourite with visitors and has unique decorative walls.

This property is a great choice for walkers and those looking to get out and enjoy the Scottish countryside. The edge of the Cairngorms National Park is just 15 miles away. There, you can enjoy challenging mountain hikes, gentle Lochside walks and some of the best views in the UK.

The Angus coast is within easy reach. The town of Montrose, 15 miles away, has a large mud lagoon and nature reserve and an interesting historic centre. Lunan Bay, 17 miles away, has a large sandy beach that is known as the best in Angus. To explore the coast, take the Angus Coast Path past quiet beaches and along wild clifftops.

A very comfortable and relaxing break for us (and our dog). The garden was great fun in the snow and the house was warm and welcoming for afterwards. We really liked having a separate tv room! Edzell had everything we needed and the walks locally were lovely.

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.
