Middlehill Cottage stands at the foot of Glen Clova, arguably the loveliest and certainly the most extensive of the beautiful Angus Glens (it runs right up almost to the edge of the Cairngorm National Park within 7 or 8 miles of the Balmoral Forest!).
Middelhill is a traditional, stone-built, single storey cottage with lovely views across the glen, standing quite alone in its own grass garden (furniture) and reached by a short track. Inside, it has been completely refurbished and modernised and now provides most comfortable accommodation, while oil-fired central heating and a wood-burning stove ensure that it is cosy all year round. Walkers will revel in the scope which the area offers; the quiet road round the glen also provides an easy and enjoyable route for cyclists.
Golfers can slip down to Kirriemuir (5m, all facilities) where there is an excellent local course; the more ambitious can go down to Carnoustie (25m) and play the hallowed links there, or cross the Tay Bridge at Dundee into Fife, where St Andrews (38m) beckons.
There is a superb beach at Lunan Bay (28m), while Dundee (24m) offers serious shopping, leisure centres, and parks as well as Captain Scott's ship Discovery which is moored in the harbour. With regard to eating out, there is an inn at Dykehead or the Clova Inn, further up the glen.
Bed linen, towels, heating and electricity are all included. Up to two well-behaved pets are welcome by arrangement. There is a telephone in the cottage. Sorry, no smoking.
