For woodland walks, Monikie Country Park (5 miles) is a short drive away. Pack a picnic and follow the trails around the two former reservoirs. There's a bird sanctuary for wildlife lovers, so keep your eyes peeled, and thrill-seeking couples should try their hand at the watersports offered by the adventure centre.

The vibrant city of Dundee is an 8-mile drive from the cottage, and major attractions include one of the oldest warships in the world, HMS Unicorn, and the V&A design museum. Dundee is recognised as a UNESCO City of Design, so leave some time just to explore.

We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this cottage to anyone travelling to the Dundee area. Very secure and quiet area outside town, but still close enough not to feel totally secluded. The owner met us when we arrived. She was very friendly and made the house feel homely by decorating it for the festive season.

This is a beautiful, well equipped, well cared for cottage,. Secluded enough for privacy yet close enough to explore Dundee itself. Plenty to do in and around this area and the Forbes Kingennie resort is a stones throw away for Golf, fishing, food and drink.

Loved our 2nd stay. Beautiful enclosed garden with lots of lawn for the dog and pretty borders for us to enjoy, made lots of use of the sunroom, loved starry skies on clear nights. Great days out to Lunan Bay, both local country parks and Glamis Castle.

Spacious and comfortable cottage, very peacefully located in the fields, with beautiful views of over 25 miles far. Beautiful garden with abundant flowers. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the silence of the location. The centre of Edinburgh can be reached within 2 hours, by a relaxing 1,5h train ride from Dundee.

Situated in open countryside in a very peaceful location, it can be enjoyed whatever the wather with conservatory and garden seating as well as the comfortable well equipped indoor rooms. The Kingennie Fishery and leisure site is an excellent place for eating out within a short distance. Well placed for Dundee and other local towns and beaches.

Cottage was fantastic, lots of home comforts, had everything we needed for a lovely holiday. The garden was equally lovely to sit out in and enjoy the views of the surrounding fields very quiet and relaxing. Great restaurant and bar just five minutes walk from the cottage that you don't have to walk on any roads to get too either. Great holiday

I would definitely recommend this cottage for two people - for the views alone - amazing! It was comfortable & had lots to recommend it. I would not want four people sleeping there because of the need to walk through the main bedroom.

This cottage is in a very peaceful setting with safe walking areas for the dog/s.

We would recommend this cottage as an ideal base to visit Angus and Fife. It has a well equipped kitchen and a comfortable lounge. The conservatory is a bonus when the sun shines. I enjoyed the shower but my wife missed her evening soak in the bath! The bathroom,we think is in need of an uplift.
