Find cottages in BrechinVisit Brechin

Brechin is a small town on the banks of the River South Esk in rural Angus and the ideal destination for a tranquil and relaxing getaway exploring the east coast of Scotland and with easy access to some beautiful and remote Scottish Countryside.

Brechin has a rich heritage and there are plenty of attractions that feature examples of medieval sculpture and architecture. Standing boldly in the centre of the 'city' is the Cathedral and an 11th Century round tower. The tower is a particularly special landmark as it is one of only two towers found on the Scottish mainland.

Visitors with a particular interest in Celtic history can visit the Pictavia Visitor Centre, where a range of interactive exhibits and artefacts are on display. Located in a pleasant countryside park in the grounds of Brechin Castle, Pictavia is the ideal venue for a family day out, as there is an adventure playground, nature trail and ornamental lake. The Brechin Town House Museum is located in the old courtroom and visitors can wander through the cellar cells and observe an interesting collection of artefacts that date back as far as the Bronze Age.

In summer, the Brechin Steam Locomotive comes to life, transporting passengers on a 4 mile journey that winds between Brechin and the Bridge of Dun in Angus; a great way to see the whole town and its surrounds for both adults and children.

Brechin offers plenty of outdoor pursuits; walks along the river and over the moors are a great way to see more of area and a stroll through the stunning walled gardens of Edzell Castle is a delightful experience. Both Dundee to the south and Stonehaven to the north offer days out and are easily accessible by road.

If you are ready for a relaxing break in the Scottish countryside, search for holiday cottages in Brechin today.

"Acres of peaceful and secluded countryside surround these magnificent cottages..."

At the heart of Glenprosen, one of the renowned ‘Glens of Angus’, lies the Balnaboth Estate on the edge of the Cairngorms National Park; 6,000 peaceful and secluded acres surrounding 16th-century Balnaboth House. In its midst, these six characterful holiday cottages each offer a unique and magical holiday retreat; indeed the creator of Peter Pan himself (Sir James Barrie) was born in nearby Kirriemuir and holidayed here.
These cottages were once occupied by shepherds, gardeners or other staff of the Ogilvy family when this was a traditional Victorian sporting estate. Red squirrels play in the trees, otters frequent the burns, and deer graze all around. Because of the varied scenery, that varies from beech woods to forest, pasture to heather moor, mountain streams to river pools, the area enjoys a spectacular range of wildlife, including species largely extinct elsewhere in Britain, such as black game and ptarmigan.
Magnificent walking, bird-watching, mountain biking and (in season) cross-country skiing abound on the estate and, further afield, downhill skiing at Glen Shee (25 miles). Fishing is available on a 5-mile stretch of the River Prosen, and there are twenty golf courses within an hours’ drive.
Enjoy the seclusion of this beautiful glen - peaceful, relaxing, scenic - yet just a few minutes’ drive from bustling market towns and busy fishing harbours which hug the Angus coastline, as well as from the city of Dundee which offers many attractions for all the family. The exciting Dundee Contemporary Arts is a stunningly-designed centre which incorporates galleries, a print studio and two art-cinema screens, while the Mills Observatory is Britain’s only full-time public observatory with a resident astronomer.
Good road, rail and air access to Angus provide easy access from all parts of the UK or international destinations. Shop 9-10 miles.

Set in splendid isolation on the high moor of the estate, this detached, single-storey cottage is a complete antidote to the stresses of the modern world. The only neighbours are the wild birds including golden eagles and deer that inhabit the beautiful countryside and there are stunning views all round the cottage. Ideal for walkers, with fantastic walks to the Munros of Dreish and Mayar from the doorstep, and for wildlife enthusiasts and those who need complete peace. Living room with dining area and open fire in stone surround. Steep step down to compact kitchen. Steep step up to double bedroom. Twin bedroom with additional single bed (for +1). Bathroom with toilet.
