There are lots of communal areas from the grand drawing room to the more informal table tennis room so plenty of space for your group to spread out.

There are five reception rooms in all, a drawing room, library, snooker room, table tennis room and atrium. High ceilings and large windows were a feature of Victorian homes and you’ll not be disappointed here. The décor is as you would expect in a stately home of this nature and is ornate yet comfortable. 

There are also plenty of additional w.c's (4 in total) on the ground floor.  One located near the library, one by the dining room and two on the lower ground floor.  

Kitchen / Dining

The kitchen is large, with a central dining table comfortably seating 14 for breakfast or perhaps children’s high tea. To make catering for a large number easier, there are two range cookers (an AGA and an electric range) and professional dishwashers and catering can be arranged for a special meal or the whole stay if required. Leading off the kitchen is a laundry room and various store rooms, so plenty of space to store your provisions.

Butlers pantries are usually located in transitional spaces between kitchens and dining rooms and used as staging areas for serving meals. Guests find the butler’s pantry extremely useful particularly when serving out and clearing away meals or making cocktails! It’s stocked with assorted glassware and a hot cupboard for keeping meals warm. There’s also a service room with an industrial glass washer and dishwasher to give those in the family normally designated for the washing up a holiday too!

As far as storing meat etc. goes, there's a big walk in fridge as well as a drinks fridge and upright freezer. So plenty of storage for large groups! The owners can also supply an outdoor gas BBQ for guests on request. 


The large dining room has floor to ceiling sash windows overlooking the garden, providing ample light during the day. Its antique mahogany table comfortably seats up to 18 guests – this number can be increased to 28 by extending the table at both ends. 

More intimate meals can be taken around the large country pine dining table in the kitchen which can seat up to 12. Perfect for breakfasts and children’s supper.

    Located on the west coast of Angus is the historic harbour town of Arbroath, renowned for its 'Arbroath Smokies' (smoked haddock to you and me!). With sandy beaches, and rugged cliffs the coastline at Arbroath is perfect for walking, there are nature trails with plenty of wildlife to spot too! Visit the ruins of the impressive 12th Century Arbroath Abbey, a Tironensian monastery, located in the town centre, set in beautiful grounds. The Visitor Centre provides information on the historic site. Located at waters edge, by the harbour, is Arbroath Signal Tower Museum, the exhibit tells the story of the maritime and industrial heritage of the town and the lighthouse tower. Take the children to Kerr’s Miniature Railway, where there is a range of miniature engines to see, and take a trip on the ride-on train along the seafront railway. 


    From pristine sandy beaches, rolling agricultural landscapes and the majestic heather clad hills and lush forests of the Angus Glens, Angus offers a range of breath taking scenery to soak up. Out in the countryside there are many Munros which offer superb walking opportunities or there is some of the best salmon and sea trout fishing in Scotland. The city of Dundee has a vibrant and lively centre; a great family day out, with fantastic shopping facilities! The harbour is home to the Discovery Point Visitor Centre, home to the spectacular ship RRS Discovery. Arbroath is an old fishing port famous the world over for its smoked fish, the Arbroath Smokie. It was here, in the Abbey, that the Declaration of Arbroath was signed in 1320. The coastal town of Montrose offers beautiful sandy beaches, and is home to a large nature reserve known as the Basin, a haven for wildlife, a special favourite for wading birds due to its muddy nature! There are also wonderful beaches at Lunan Bay and St Cyrus. The spectacular Glamis Castle, which was the childhood home of the late Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, is a fantastic family day out, and golfers must pay a visit to the famous Carnoustie championship golf course.
