Forming part of the Cortachy and Airlie Estates, the house is situated in a stunning location at the foot of the Angus Glens and is surrounded by woodland, farmland and hills. There are wonderful walks throughout the estate, with fishing, shooting and catering available by arrangement with the owner.

This beautiful property makes an ideal backdrop for weddings, celebrations and reunions.

This welcoming house hasa large stone-flagged and pillared entrance hall, a stylish two-storey hanging staircase and several beautifully light and spacious oval rooms. The house has been imaginatively refurbished and decorated in a light and occasionally quirky style, with fine fabrics and a selection of antiques dotted throughout. With fine cotton bed linen and original deep claw-foot baths, this is a wonderful retreat to relax in at the end of a fabulous day.

Entering this idyllic home, you will find the spectacular stone-flagged hallway with its impressive staircase. Exploring the ground floor, you will discover the light, attractive and spacious oval drawing room which features an open fire, plenty of seating and glorious views.

There is also a TV room and a breakfast room, both of which are perfect for relaxing in. There is also a boot room and bathroom on the ground floor.

The lower ground floor has fully equipped kitchen with additional dining space, and a games room where you can try your hand at table tennis. There is also a twin bedroom on this floor as well as a utility room, larder, bathroom and separate WC.
