Holiday home Set in the scattered hamlet of East Murthill and just seven miles from Kirriemuir, this cottage is one of two 17th Century stone-built properties. This cottage has been renovated to a high quality and is located close to the South Esk River providing great views. Guests are invited to use the owner's indoor swimming pool, Jacuzzi and sauna, making this a wonderfully luxurious holiday base. The property is well-situated for skiing at Glenshee, touring Edinburgh or playing golf at St. Andrews. With so much to see in the local area, it will be a tough choice whether to stay in and pamper yourself or go out sightseeing.
Area Situated in the valley of Strathmore and regarded as the gateway to the Angus Glens, Kirriemuir is a lovely red sandstone town amidst some of Scotland's most unspoiled landscapes. This stunning settlement was the birthplace of the renowned novelist JM Barrie, best known for his children's character Peter Pan who was the subject of the film 'Finding Neverland'. His house is now a museum looked after by the National Trust for Scotland and a statue of 'the boy who never grew up' can be found in the town itself. Another literary landmark is close by in the form of Glamis castle, Shakespeare's setting for his unluckiest of plays, Macbeth. Kirriemuir also hosts an Aviation Museum and the historic Pictish Stones at Meigle as well as hill-walking in the Angus Glens.
Region From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.
