Laurencekirk, Aberdeenshire, Scotland
In the grounds of Glenfarquhar Lodge, this former bakehouse has been tastefully converted into a unique two bedroomed character property. The property was converted in 2007 to a very high standard, and has been equipped to a very high level.

A perfect property for anyone looking for a quiet and relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle, but equally a good base for exploring North East Scotland, with its castles, whisky distilleries and lovely nearby coastline, to name but a few of its attractions.
