4th comment: I thought the property was very good, clean, and comfortable. I enjoyed the location and are going to return next year. May 2010.
5th comment: In a lovely rural setting but within 10 minutes drive of Dundee. Also only 50 minutes to Edinburgh. March 2010.
6th comment: Lovely location for walking, even though it’s near to the main road. 15 minutes (9 miles) to the centre of Dundee outside of rush hour. Very quiet and relaxing in mid January, though as accommodation shares tennis courts, lawn, drive etc with other larger accommodation, it may be less quiet in the summer of during school holidays. Very warm, secure and good facilities throughout. Jan 2010.
