Welcome pack. \n\n Lawned garden with sitting-out area and garden furniture. 2-acre grounds with sand dunes and grassed areas. Bike store. Private parking for 2 cars. No smoking. Please note The property is close to the shoreline.\n\n This detached former fisherman’s bothy is one of a small group of houses in a wonderful seaside location accessed by a farm road with a section of track and with the stunning beach just yards away. The cottage is quaint and quirky. It is a genuine converted working bothy with the comfortable living room and kitchen open plan to each other and a separate bedroom and bathroom. The wood burner adds further to the cosy atmosphere where you can relax in comfort after a day out walking or taking in the sea air. The house is sheltered by the sand dunes and just beyond is the magnificent 3-mile crescent of sand which makes up Lunan Bay one of the finest beaches in Scotland.\nThe beach is popular with surfers horse riders and bird watchers. Traditional salmon fishing still takes place here in summertime with nets strung from poles on the beach to trap fish in the falling tide. The Lunan Water meanders onto the beach in a beautiful estuary. High on a grassy bluff overlooking the river and bay are the ruins of Red Castle built in the 1200s for King William of Scotland. There is a café 220 yards away offering locally produced food which is great for breakfast or snacks after a spell on the beach. Further afield but still within easy reach the towns of Montrose and Arbroath are well worth a visit while the Angus Glens offer miles of walking in peace and quiet in total contrast to the beach scenery. In the wider area are many notable places for visits such as Glamis Castle. Shop and pub 4 miles restaurants 3 miles.\nFishermans Bothy UK5065 can be booked together with Beachside UK5197 and Riverside UK5325 to accommodate up to 14 guests.

    Fantastic wee place so close to the beach. Very relaxing holiday, bothy well equipped and beds extremely comfortable. Wood burner was lovely feature, would return without hesitation.

    Lovely bothy, have stayed here a few times and not been disappointed. Location is great, just over the dunes and right on the beach. Andrew and Edi are a lovely couple who are on hand if anything is required, but not intrusive. A great place to relax and get away from it all and if Daisy the dog could talk she would say she'd " had the time of her life".

    Cosy little cottage in great location. Friendly owner met us and gave some helpful info re cottage and locality. Full rack of logs for log-burner was most appreciated. Plenty to see and do and the dog loved the beach right on the doorstep. Only two minor niggles with the cottage, no coat hooks to hang coats when coming in and cannot cut light coming into bedroom if someone goes to bed early and someone stays up.

    Spent a few days at this beautiful cottage owner very friendly nothing to much trouble.On arrival log burning fire all set to light with logs in basket kindling to relight for another day. Very peaceful and quiet stay just the break you need for a relaxing few days. Great walks with dog on the very nearby beach surrounding areas very easy to get to will be returning.

    Location Location Location This is the place to come if you want peace & quiet & fab walks along a huge stretch of sand .The Bothy is a stones throw from the beach but in sheltered sunny position, we made use of a bench & a pic nic bench outside to sit on . The Bothy has everything you need, washing machine , fridge ,microwave , cooker , kettle & the usual utensils & crockery . It was certainly enough for 2 & more. There's an immersion system to switch on which is super easy to use , you just need to remember to switch it on after you've finished cooking & by the time you've eaten there's plenty of hot water to do the pots. We found the beds comfy with good quality linen & warm duvets. We didn't use pillows as always take my own on holidays . The Bothy was surprisingly much bigger than I'd expected. I personally loved the twin bedroom set up . It was nice & cosy sitting in bed reading with the log burner on . Having the log burner made the stay for me . I knew I would buy extra logs for the week so factored that into my budget. I like to be toasty. Also I think because the Bothy is old & not lived in all year round it needs the log burner on to warm it up . The Bothy is not damp , but there is a slight smell of damp. Theres a great big bath in the bathroom but we only used the shower which was lovely & hot. I also found the fireside chairs to be comfortable , my daughter hogged the sofa . We did not miss having a TV . My daughter brought 9 books to read . We found that our mobile signal was terrible inside the Bothy (the Bothy walls are over a foot thick) but ok when you were outside & once we were connected to the wifi we had no issues. I took my own blankets & hot water bottles , pic nic chairs & torches with me as I wouldn't expect to find those in a 3 star rating. Andrew , the owner was very accommodating. lunan bay is a beautiful, wild & peaceful place to step off the Hampster wheel for a few days . I grew up in the area so I remember seeing fisherman around with big nets hanging up drying & the nets on the beach .I'd recommend staying at the Bothy as it is what I'd expected , a rustic experience in an excellent location . .

    Needs better heating, I found the cottage is damp and needing a good clean. The lawn was badly needing cut.
