A spacious rustic kitchen sports a breakfast bar area for drinking in those views first thing in the morning. A large, comfortable lounge/diner features TV/DVD and a choice of board games to keep you entertained on a quiet or rainy afternoon.

Convenient and ample off-road parking is directly beside the cottage.

Enjoy some of the watersports which are on offer such as kayaking, windsurfing or paddle boarding. The seaside towns of Arbroath (13 miles), Carnoustie (9 miles) and Broughty Ferry (only 5 miles) are a short drive away and the vibrant city of Dundee is under 7 miles with a wealth of attractions, shopping and leisure facilities. The immediate area is perfect for walking, cycling and mountain biking so get out and about while on holiday.

Close to the coast, explore the seaside towns and villages, including Monifieth (4.5 miles), Carnoustie (9.5 miles), and Broughty Ferry (5.5 miles) which as well as a lovely sandy beach has an impressive castle. When the weather is good, make a day of it: walk around the town and pop into the independent and family run shops and cafes, discover the town's history inside the castle, and end with an ice cream on the beach.



For woodland walks, Monikie Country Park (5 miles) is a short drive away. Pack a picnic and follow the trails around the two former reservoirs. There's a bird sanctuary for wildlife lovers, so keep your eyes peeled, and thrill-seeking couples should try their hand at the watersports offered by the adventure centre.



Further afield, Arbroath (13.5 miles) boasts the magnificent ruins of an abbey, plus the town itself has a miniature railway and harbour. Spend an entire day at Glamis Castle (12 miles), childhood home of HM Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother and the setting for Shakespeare's Macbeth (also go to Cawdor Castle).



The vibrant city of Dundee is an 8-mile drive from the cottage, and major attractions include one of the oldest warships in the world, HMS Unicorn, and the V&A design museum. Dundee is recognised as a UNESCO City of Design, so leave some time just to explore.

We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this cottage to anyone travelling to the Dundee area. Very secure and quiet area outside town, but still close enough not to feel totally secluded. The owner met us when we arrived. She was very friendly and made the house feel homely by decorating it for the festive season.

This is a beautiful, well equipped, well cared for cottage,. Secluded enough for privacy yet close enough to explore Dundee itself. Plenty to do in and around this area and the Forbes Kingennie resort is a stones throw away for Golf, fishing, food and drink. We found the local taxi firms were also very good and well priced if you wanted to leave yoRead moreur car on the drive. A wonderful stay and would certainly recommend. Hide

Loved our 2nd stay. Beautiful enclosed garden with lots of lawn for the dog and pretty borders for us to enjoy, made lots of use of the sunroom, loved starry skies on clear nights. Great days out to Lunan Bay, both local country parks and Glamis Castle.

Perfect attention to detail. Even our dog had a nice welcome!

Spacious and comfortable cottage, very peacefully located in the fields, with beautiful views of over 25 miles far. Beautiful garden with abundant flowers. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the silence of the location. The centre of Edinburgh can be reached within 2 hours, by a relaxing 1,5h train ride from Dundee.

Reviewed by Wilson 20th July 2019

Situated in open countryside in a very peaceful location, it can be enjoyed whatever the wather with conservatory and garden seating as well as the comfortable well equipped indoor rooms. The Kingennie Fishery and leisure site is an excellent place for eating out within a short distance. Well placed for Dundee and other local towns and beaches.

Wonderful cottage really big the pictures don't do it justice

Reviewed by Stuart 15th June 2019

Cottage was fantastic, lots of home comforts, had everything we needed for a lovely holiday. The garden was equally lovely to sit out in and enjoy the views of the surrounding fields very quiet and relaxing. Great restaurant and bar just five minutes walk from the cottage that you don't have to walk on any roads to get too either. Great holiday
