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.

 

Surf, play golf and run free on the dog-friendly beach at marvellous Montrose (4 miles); the town also has an interesting art gallery and museum. Enjoy a traditional ‘Smokie’ at beautiful Arbroath (10.5 miles), and drink in the fresh sea air on its long sandy beaches beneath sandstone cliffs. To the south, find more fabulous dog-friendly beaches at rocky Easthaven (16.5 miles) and Carnoustie (18 miles), home of many marvellous golf courses. Shingly Inverbervie (16 miles) and Stonehaven’s two delightful beaches (27 miles) lie to the north.

Very well equipped and furnished. Excellent TV and Wi Fi reception. Under floor heating and hot water systems very good. However, the heating system failed on one day and over heated the cottage while we were out. This meant that despite a rapid response by the owner and having to have doors and windows open it was too hot to sleep comfortably thatRead more night. Location is such that there is almost no direct sunlight into the cottage and the proximity of large trees means that it is necessary to day Hide

Peaceful, relaxing and scenic location. Cottage was lovely, fresh flowers in the kitchen, every room immaculate and well equipped, a credit to the owners. The idyllic location means you can wander the castle grounds, through the woodland walks and down to the wonderful walled garden. Numerous walks nearby including the beautiful Angus Coastal Path.Read more Montrose a short drive away for shopping etc. We will definitely return to Yew Cottage. Hide

This is a beautiful cottage with its own lawned garden. It is very spacious for two people and has the added advantage of being only about 100yds from the Castles walled garden which is beautifully laid out with exotic flowers. Also there are woodland walks which our dog loved.

Very comfortable cottage, recently refurbished with a little private garden. Access to the castle grounds was a real bonus. Our dog loved the wood path. Good location on the coast and close to Montrose for supplies, highly recommend this cottage for walking or driving along the Angus coast
