Had a lovely break at this cosy cabin in the countryside. We explored the woodland and hill-walks, standing stones and other historic sites nearby, and various attractions in Dundee. The cabin was perfect, warm and comfortable. Great garden for the kids to play in too.

The nearest city Dundee located on the banks of the Tay estuary is steeped in history.
