Description

This delightful traditional, detached cottage has a wonderful ambience and offers very stylish and comfortable accommodation throughout. Set back from the road with stunning views of the Tay Estuary from the pretty enclosed rear garden, the living room allows access through patio doors to the garden, where guests can sit and relax while watching the boats sail into the distance or a train going past heading for the iconic Tay Rail Bridge. The ‘Jewel in Dundee’s crown’, Broughty Ferry has a continental atmosphere with its fine seafront, lovely beach, harbour and esplanade. The seafront walks are ideal for a relaxing stroll or you could take the coastal path towards Dundee, 4 miles to the west.

The 15th century Broughty Castle, overlooking the harbour, houses a museum featuring displays on Dundee’s maritime history. Dundee boasts a thriving arts scene and plenty of good shops, bars and restaurants. Dundee is also home to a number of big attractions, including Captain Scott’s ship, The Discovery, on which you can explore and indulge in a little history. Golfers will find this the ideal base to enjoy some of Scotland’s finest golf courses, with St Andrews, Carnoustie and Rosemount all within a half hour’s drive. The neighbouring Kingdom of Fife boasts a number of pretty fishing villages, beautiful sandy beaches and stunning coastal scenery.

About the local area

The ancient land of Angus comprises unspoilt highland glens, stunning rugged coastline and has a rich historical and cultural past. There are a good range of visitor attractions here that trace the regions heritage from earliest times to the present day including of course the ancestral home of the late Queen Mother at Glamis Castle.

Dundee has been transformed in recent years into a lively cosmopolitan centre with a burgeoning cultural quarter and an impressive range of galleries and museums. Strategically located on the Firth of Tay, the city has an important sea-faring and industrial heritage, with Captain Scott's famous Antarctic expedition ship RSS `Discovery' birthed on the banks of the River Tay at the award-winning Discovery Point Visitor Centre.

The glens of Angus have been attracting walkers and nature lovers for years. In sight of the southern peaks of the Grampian Mountains visitors will discover a number of tranquil valleys, single-track roads, rugged peaks and rolling hills; there are ten Munros (mountains over 3,000 feet) in this region. Of particular note is Glen Clova and at its head Glen Doll, which have wonderful lush valleys, heather clad slops and magnificent cliffs.

Some of the most spectacular scenery can be found along Scotland's North Sea coast; beautiful sandy and pebble beaches and outcrops of rugged cliffs stretching for some sixty-five miles. Four miles east of Dundee is Broughty Ferry, once regarded as `the richest square mile in Europe' due to the number of wealthy textiles barons that lived there and just further along the coast is Carnoustie with its world renowned championship golf course. Continuing north along the coast the next port of call is Arbroath which has an attractive old harbour, long sandy beaches and stunning sandstone cliffs. And of course no visit here is complete without sampling the town's most famous product - the `Arbroath Smokie' (haddock smoke cured over oak chips).
