Dundee has just been chosen as the UK’s first UNESCO City of Design, and calls itself a city of discoveries. Book a holiday cottage in Dundee to see what and who have put the city on the map: visit the RSS Discovery, and walk the Women’s Trail, celebrating 25 important women of Dundee with plaques in places of interest.
Hospitalfield House, Dundee Contemporary Arts centre and The McManus Art Gallery & Museum are all points of interest for art and culture lovers, and those with an interest in literature should visit Kirriemuir, home of Peter Pan author JM Barrie, whose house has now been turned into a museum. Animal lovers will delight in Mountains Animal Sanctuary, the rehoming centre for horses, ponies and donkeys, Loch Kinnordy RSPB reserve and Corrie Fee National Nature Reserve. Holiday cottages in Angus give you the chance to see all this, and more!
Foodies will love tasting Aberdeen Angus beef in a local setting, and should visit the farmers markets at Dundee, Montrose and Forfar. If you’re looking at holiday cottages in Angus , consider Forfar, a traditional and ancient market town, home to the Angus Folk Museum, and Glamis Castle. The castle is the setting for Macbeth, and said to be one of the most haunted castles in Great Britain, with the exception of perhaps Hermitage Castle in the Scottish Borders.
