Property code: CA104

A historic house along a tree-lined drive, surrounded by fields and moorland, that is an elegant space for family gatherings.

This light-filled house may be grand, but it's far from stuffy or old-fashioned. Large windows and bright, modern decor complement the traditional building. It's been furnished with great care, mixing old and new. It's ideally placed for active holidays, with many acres of grounds to explore, and hills and moors close by. It's also within reach of both the Cairngorms National Park and the coast. While it's set in glorious seclusion, the town of Kirriemuir, with its shops, pubs and restaurants, is an easy 5-mile drive away.

Step inside and you'll be struck first by the impressive hallway, with classical-style pillars, a flagstone floor and a sweeping staircase. There is a large oval-shaped drawing room with an open fire, and a separate TV room, also with an open fire. Both have plenty of comfortable, sociable seating. The formal dining room has a large, grand table with room for everyone to gather around. For casual dining, there is a separate breakfast room. The traditional-style kitchen, with an Aga, electric cooker, fridge/freezer, additional freezer and microwave, is on the lower-ground floor, and is home to another table giving you a third dining option. The games room, with a table tennis table, is also on this floor and there is a separate utility room with a washing machine. There are nine bedrooms spread mostly over the first and second floors, with one on the lower-ground floor, each sleeping two. Of these, seven are double or king-size rooms and two are twins. One bedroom has an en-suite, and two share a Jack and Jill bathroom, and there are another five bathrooms in addition.

Outside, there are extensive grounds with lawns and flowerbeds, and private woodlands on the estate. There is ample parking.

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

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

Excellent property with a lot of character and story. Huge space around the house and across 4 floors. But the bathrooms need urgent upgrade. It has 2 useable showers. Bath fittings are rusted. With some basic uplift to the bathrooms - this property will be a desirable destination for us to reconsider.

Fantastic location with acres of surrounding land and a shallow river going round the estate. Thankfully we carried 10 bikes and was well worth it for all adults/kids to cycle on/off road. Cottage was well equipped with plenty of space for everyone.
