A stylish period cottage with wood burner, ideal for a romantic getaway. Nestled in a peaceful position close to the seashore and within walking distance of the beautiful sandy Lunan Bay.
Set on the Dunninald Castle Estate on the spectacular Angus Coast, this delightful cottage will have romantic couples and their faithful friend ready for Scottish adventures. Explore Dunninald Castle’s walled and wild gardens, enjoy a relaxed game of tennis and delve into Dunninald’s thousand-year history. Walk to the old lime kilns on breathtaking Boddin Point (1 mile), and watch the golden sweep of dog-friendly Lunan Bay stretch away majestically to the southwest (2.5 miles). Discover the ruined Red Castle (2.5 miles), a dramatic medieval reminder of darker days and search for banded agates all around the Angus Coast.
Inside the single-storey cottage you’ll find a quaint and cosy blend of rural charm, sleek contemporary style and welcoming modern comfort. After wild days of Scottish wandering, unwind in the lounge around the stone hearth’s glowing wood burner with a local whisky and cuddles with your favourite canine. Whip up feasts of fresh local fare in the bright and streamlined kitchen/diner and enjoy them al fresco in the enclosed rear garden. After a steaming soak in the tranquil bathroom, finish your day with a welcome nightcap, before drifting off to your double bedroom to dream of tomorrow’s adventures.
