Property Description

Surrounded by breathtaking scenery, these two beautiful adjoining period stone cottages are situated in secluded Glen Lethnot - an unspoilt Angus glen. A great sense of peace is felt here among the green slopes and heather clad hills, nestling behind the two Iron Age Hill Forts - the Brown and White Caterthuns. Although in a wonderfully rural setting, these two holiday cottages are just 5 miles from the village of Edzell with its selection of shops, tearooms and parks. Excellent walks, with an abundance of wildlife, abound from the doorstep, or slightly further afield at Glen Prosen, Clova, Glen Isla and Glen Esk. Numerous golf courses are within a short drive and this, coupled with excellent beaches at St Cyrus and Montrose, make it an ideal spot for couples or families. The house also features an attractive garden with access through to the woods beyond. The Victorian Heritage Trail through Fettercairn to Braemar passes through some gorgeous scenery, and there are numerous castles and stately homes to visit. The Distillery at Fettercairn is of note for whisky lovers, whilst the peace and tranquillity of this beautiful area can just simply be enjoyed. Fishing, stalking, horse riding and golf are nearby and can be arranged on request. Shops 5 miles.

Living room with open fire. Modern kitchen with breakfast area. Utility/boot room. Two bedrooms, each with rugs on wooden floor; one double with 5ft bed, and one twin with additional foldaway bed (for +1 child only). Bathroom with separate shower cubicle and toilet.
