This gorgeous, detached, whitewashed cottage is located in the tiny hamlet of Bridgend of Lintrathen, near the shore of the Loch of Lintrathen – a stunning and picturesque body of freshwater, in the heart of rural Angus. The cottage is warm and welcoming, well laid out and tastefully furnished, combining contemporary furnishings with a cottage feel. The well-equipped kitchen opens onto a delightful, enclosed rear garden with a fabulous hot tub set on a raised covered deck. Enjoy an al fresco meal prepared on the barbecue while relaxing on a sunny afternoon. Lovers of coffee and glorious homemade food are equally well catered for, the cottage being in walking distance from one of Angus’ hidden treasures, the owner’s café, perfect for coffees, lunches and cakes, ideal after a leisurely walk round the loch.
Lintrathen is host to a plethora of wildlife including otters, ospreys, wildfowl and breeding songbirds, with observation hides sited round the loch. There is fishing, with permits available from the local angling club and there are numerous walks and cycle trails in the surrounding area. Dundee is only a short drive away, with the V&A design museum, the RSS Discovery ship and Verdant Works, a restored mill housing interactive displays, all of which are must-see excursions to the city. There are golf courses abound in the area and hillwalkers are well catered for in the surrounding countryside. The Cairngorms National Park, the Malt Whisky Trail and the ski centre at Glenshee are all within easy reach, offering a wide range of activities whatever the weather and time of year.

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).
