Smart and uniquely stylish property in a secluded spot on the Airlie Estate in Angus, perfect for wildlife lovers, and close to magnificent Glamis Castle.

Tucked away on the Airlie Estate amongst the Angus glens, this attractive stone cottage is the ideal place for couples or families to get away from it all and immerse themselves in the surrounding natural beauty. Against the backdrop of the mountains in the distance, you can take a stroll around the grounds, whilst keeping an eye out for the local wildlife such as deer, squirrels and polecats as well as beavers in nearby River Isla. The area is well-suited to keen walkers, cyclists and outdoor pursuits enthusiasts with a range of sports on offer.

As you approach up the sweeping driveway and past the well-manicured gardens, you will feel like Lord or Lady of the Manor. This charming cottage is well-presented throughout with a clear sense of heritage; the original features and traditional furniture are enhanced by the neutral palette to create a comfortable home that guests will find easy to relax in.

From the large hallway, head into the cosy lounge where everyone will want to be of an evening, snuggled in front of the roaring open fire; if it gets too warm, you can always open the stable door to let the fresh air in. Two steps lead down to the spacious kitchen/diner. Industrial shelving combines with the traditional Belfast sink to create the feel of a contemporary farmhouse kitchen with a modern range oven at its centre.

On the first floor, the large king-size room has a minimalist design, creating a bright open space to relax in. There is also a twin room on this floor and a traditional bathroom complete with free-standing roll-top bath.

Outside, there is plenty of space to stretch your legs as well as garden furniture for al fresco dining.

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

The nearest town, Kirriemuir, is 7.5 miles away. Known as the ‘Gateway to the Glens’, it is a great base for exploring the braes of Angus. It is also home to the birthplace of Peter Pan author, J.M. Barrie, which is now owned by the National Trust, and has many museums, statues and monuments as well as a Camera Obscura.

Market town, Blairgowrie, is also nearby (10 miles) and offers guests a range of amenities; it’s the starting place for the Snow Roads 90-mile scenic route through the Cairngorms.

There is lots of spectacular scenery to be seen in this area of Scotland either on foot or by bike. Munro-baggers will be keen to get to the summit of Ben Tirran (19 miles), whereas others might be happy to explore the beauty of Glen Clova (17 miles).

For wildlife enthusiasts, Scotland is the ideal holiday location with some of Britain’s rarest wildlife on your doorstep, but by heading to the Scottish Wildlife Trust’s reserve at the Loch of Lintrathen you may get a glimpse of majestic ospreys and playful otters.

This is an area steeped in history with a wealth of historic buildings and castles. One such castle is Glamis Castle (10 miles), often referred to as Scotland’s most beautiful castle, which is open to visitors daily.

If you’re looking for something less rural and more fast-paced, you can head to ‘Capital of Cool’ Dundee (19 miles) or a little further afield to the capital city Edinburgh (66 miles).

Had the best time. Managed to really wind down and relax. Cottage is spacious, rustic, full of character and very well equipped. Particularly liked the winding staircase. Surroundings were beautiful, gardens and nearby castle just lovely. Weather good enough to have a bin fire outside at night, putting the world to rights with a few drinks! Fell inRead more love with the walk by the nearby river. Not a commercial walkway, just flanked by trees, flora and fauna with clear shallow, gently flowing water. Hide

Square cottage is very unique and cosy. We love the log fire and the deco which made us feel like we moved back in time. The estate grounds are beautiful. We enjoyed the walk along the river. If you are lucky u can spot wildlife (hares, deers, American mink, otters, squirrels, trout, salmon).

Cosy and relaxing. Square Cottage was an absolute pleasure - it's a genuinely comfortable and stylish cottage, an ideal place to relax and unwind. In the daytime, you'll see the gardeners buzzing around but at night you'll feel totally secluded. You can enjoy star-filled skies before coming back inside to the roaring fire. The grounds are beautifulRead more and being able to walk down to the river as well as exploring the walled garden made our holiday. We loved it. Hide

Cottage is in the grounds of Airlie castle and during our stay the castle was vacant so we had the run of the grounds. Amazing gardens with walks through the woods and along the river. The cottage has a large kitchen with a new double oven and dining table. The lounge has an open log fire and there is an ample log store. We spent the nights playingRead more games and drinking wine in front of the open fire. Really relaxing and full of old world charm. 2 large bedrooms with really comfortable beds. Hide

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.
