Description

This charming, end terraced former fisherman’s cottage sits in an unrivalled location at the end of a quiet lane in the village of Auchmithie, commanding wonderful views over the sea from the lovely terraced garden. Enjoy a glass of wine whilst looking out for porpoises or dolphins which are frequently sighted here. Take a short stroll to the local restaurant which is well known in the area for serving good food. There is a very good coastal walk from here to Arbroath, seven miles, which takes in the spectacular scenery of the Seaton Cliffs. Arbroath itself has an abundance of other eating places, shops selling fresh caught fish and other gift shops. The town’s historical past is well worth exploring, visit Arbroath Abbey, best known for being the origin of the Declaration of Arbroath or sample the famous ’smokies’, available down by the bustling harbour. Pay a visit to the Signal Tower Museum with its history of Arbroath lighthouse keepers. Inland, the Angus Glens beckon the keen walker, while golfers are spoilt for choice, with many courses in the vicinity, not to mention Carnoustie’s famous links. Nearby is historic Montrose, RSPB Montrose Basin and The National Trust for Scotland property, House of Dun. Shop 2 miles, pub 1½ and restaurant 300 yards.

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).
