Grampian Cottage is one of the best cottages that we've stayed in. It is very spacious and comfortable - especially the beds. It is beautifully decorated and has every piece of equipment that you might need. There are 2 separate gardens, both of them very well laid out with great views.

Beautiful location for this charming cottage with open countryside views. Easy access to the many seaside towns and local villages. Several glens to wander and explore nearby including Glen Esk with the walk to Loch Lee. Kate and Lee make you feel very welcome and we really enjoyed the hamper and information on local places to visit.
