    “This was our second visit to this house & we really love staying here.”

    I first saw it featured in Scottish Field magazine & thought at the time how nice it would be to go there & it didn’t disappoint. The layout downstairs is simply spectacular with a magnificent feature fire. Upstairs the main bedroom has a separate dressing room & doors onto a balcony plus a comfortable seating area. There is a downstairs bedroom that’s almost in a separate wing which is great for privacy. The surrounding area is fabulous for walking & I can highly recommend Tesco at Forfar ...

Drovers at Memus isn’t bad but think they struggle a bit with vegetarian options. A beetroot risotto was just purple rice & nothing else! We very much hope to return to Glen Cruick in the future.

The property

Glen Cruick is a beautifully appointed, contemporary, stone-built house which has some unique features both inside and out. Being designed and built in traditional post and beam construction adds character and ambience to this very special, unique and luxurious holiday home in the hills. The quality of the interior design is high and furnishings and fittings are exceptional; a standard not often met within holiday houses. Inside or out, Glen Cruick will refresh and renew your spirits! Fishing, golfing and walking are a few of the accessible outdoor activities. Tracks and trails head off in all directions directly from the house, offering the chance to truly escape from it all in seclusion and privacy. Although the house feels as if it sits in blissful isolation, and that is but one of its many attractions, it is actually within easy driving distance of a number of visitor attractions. The A90 dual carriageway is easily reached giving access to major towns and cities. The country town of Forfar is just 10 miles away and Brechin (which has a lovely cathedral, a castle and Brechin Castle garden centre at which is the Pictavia visitors attraction) is 11 miles away. Kirriemuir, the birthplace of J.M. Barrie of Wendy and Peter Pan fame, is about 14 miles away. Aberlemno is 8 miles away and here there are various Pictish stones and an historic church. Lunan Bay, with its wonderful sands, or St Cyrus with not only a superb beach but also a National Nature Reserve, are less than 25 miles away. The Angus Glens – Glens Clova, Prosen and Doll – start 8 miles or so away and offer fantastic walks. Glen Esk, which is the most easterly of the Angus Glens, and, as with the other Angus Glens, has ancient tracks leading through to Royal Deeside, is north of Edzell which is 15 miles away. Edzell has a castle with lovely gardens which are managed by Historic Scotland. There is a flat walk from the top of Glen Esk to the Queen’s Well, which commemorates Queen Victoria’s visit from Balmoral over the hills. Driving on from Edzell and going via Fettercairn leads over the Cairn o’ Mount to Banchory and Royal Deeside. There is plenty to see and do in this much under explored area of Scotland - a true hidden gem.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location

KIRRIEMUIR

Dundee 18 miles, Aberdeen 55.2 miles

Kirriemuir is a lovely red sandstone town in the valley of Strathmore, regarded as the gateway to the Angus Glens, which offer some of Scotland's most unspoiled landscape. The town is home to the birthplace of novelist JM Barrie, creator of the much-loved children's character Peter Pan and the house is now a museum looked after by the National Trust for Scotland. A statue of Peter Pan can be found in the town. Kirriemuir also offers Glamis Castle and the historic Pictish Stones at Meigle, while the Angus Glens offer great hill walking and climbing. With a fine variety of shops, hotels and pubs in the town and surrounding area, there is something here to suit all tastes.

Note: The pond is unfenced so please take this into account when booking. Note: Though electricity is included in the rent, electric for charging cars is not included in the rental.
