Relax and enjoy the peace and quiet in this most appealing detached cottage, set down a quiet lane in the peaceful hamlet of Ballindean, just 7 miles south of Dundee. Ideally placed for exploring the delights of Perthshire and Tayside, the property is comfortable and retains some of its original features – the diamond paned windows and wood burner in particular add a cosy ambience to the cottage.
Surrounded by the fertile farmlands of the Carse of Gowrie, renowned for soft fruit growing, the cottage is in a very pleasant location in which to spend a break exploring the delights of Perthshire, Tayside or the East Neuk of Fife. Easy access to both Perth and Dundee make this an excellent touring base and an hour’s drive will take you to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and the Highlands. Locally there are good walking routes to be explored and for golfers, St Andrews, Carnoustie and Gleneagles are all within an easy drive. Hillwalkers can explore the 5 Angus Glens situated to the north west, whilst for history lovers, the nearby Discovery Point in Dundee is well worth a visit, home to the vessel used by Captain Robert Scott during his 1901 to 1904 Antarctic expedition.
Visit the Cairn o’ Mhor Winery nearby, specializing in fruit wines from local sources, with seasonal tours available, a good alternative to the national drink, but if whisky is your bag, then a trip to the Glenturret Distillery in Crieff, the oldest working distillery in Scotland, or Lindores Abbey Distillery, are both good options. Alternatively, spend time at the Abernyte Antique centre, a 5-minute drive away, with a good café/restaurant and huge supply of Scottish antiques. Beach 14¾ miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1¾ miles.

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).
