Description

In a peaceful location just a mile from the delightful village of Edzell, this cosy, Grade C listed, detached gate lodge offers a haven of relaxation. Originally a gatehouse for Dunlappie House, the property has been very comfortably furnished and equipped with a cosy wood burner. With sunny aspects in the living room and bedroom, Dunlappie Lodge is a great choice for couples and small families. There are many good walks in the area, ideal for wildlife lovers, such as at Glen Prosen, Clova, Glen Isla and Glen Esk. Visit the Caterthuns, two Iron Age forts nearby, or take a look around the Edzell’s selection of shops, tearooms and parks.


There is a very good golf course just half a mile from the house, with numerous others within easy reach. To the north lie the magnificent Angus Glens leading deep into the Cairngorms, which has fantastic walking, climbing and mountain biking throughout the national park. 15 miles to the east are the picturesque fishing villages, cliffs and excellent beaches at St Cyrus, Lunan Bay and Montrose. Alternatively, take the Victorian Heritage Trail through Royal Deeside to Braemar via the scenic Cairn o’ Mount Road, which offers panoramic views over the Howe o’ the Mearns and the Vale of Strathmore. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

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).
