The Neids is a traditional stone-built cottage nestling in a small grove of trees, a perfect hideaway and tucked away in a peaceful world of its own in the beautiful rolling foothills of Glen Isla, to the north east of Blairgowrie (shops, hotels, pubs and restaurants) in rural Perthshire.

Overview

Carefully restored and recently fully refurbished by the owner, it provides comfortable and very well equipped accommodation for both small and larger parties. It is an ideal spot for those who wish to relax and get away from the world and the noise of traffic, giving both adults and children the opportunity to enjoy the peace and freedom of the countryside, with wildlife in abundance. It is also an excellent base for those who want to explore the many attractions of the area.

At the end of a hard track half a mile from the nearest country road, it is surrounded by its own fenced garden (with furniture). The River Isla is only 250 yards from the door, providing an excellent spot for picnics, swimming and barbecues.

The spacious living accommodation is very comfortable and cosy and has undergone quite the transformation. The main living area has been opened up to incorporate a warm and inviting L-shaped sitting room with a wood-burning stove at its heart, a dining area with a door out to the garden alongside and an elegant and very well-equipped kitchen area. It even has a dishwasher that takes away the chore of doing the dishes and there is also a handy little utility room that houses the washing machine.

There are three bedrooms downstairs, two double rooms (one king-size) and a neat twin room, as well as two separate bathrooms that both have the choice of a bath or convenient shower over.

Upstairs is a twin bedroom with coombed ceilings that children are sure to love and, for the odd rainy day, there is the added bonus of a large play area on this level.

Map & Local

The Angus glens are one of Scotland's best kept secrets, often overlooked by visitors hurrying north to the Highlands. They are Glen Isla, Glen Clova and Glen Prosen, and, further away, Glen Lethnot and Glen Esk. Isla, Clova and Prosen all start fairly quietly, but become increasingly wild and mountainous, and provide splendid walking country.

For golfers, there are numerous local courses to choose from. One of the best is Rosemount in nearby Blairgowrie. Riding and fishing are also available in the area. There is an excellent beach at Lunan Bay (40 miles), just north of Arbroath (31 miles) (call in for fresh 'smokies', direct from the smokery), just over half an hour away.

Blair Castle at Blair Atholl and Scone Palace, the ancient crowning place of the Kings of Scotland, are within an hour's drive. Glamis Castle, the birthplace of the Queen Mother, is only 12 miles distant while Kirriemuir (10 miles) is the birthplace of J M Barrie, the author of Peter Pan.

Dundee (16 miles, with all facilities) is within half an hour's drive. There is a pleasant country park there at Camperdown with an excellent small zoo, while HMS Unicorn, the oldest British warship afloat, and Captain Scott's HMS Discovery are both moored in the harbour. From there, it is an easy drive over the Tay Bridge to Fife and St Andrews (30 miles), with its fine beaches and legendary golf courses. Perth (21 miles) has an excellent range of shops, leisure centre, ice-rink etc. Aberdeen (64 miles) and Royal Deeside (40 miles) are also well worth a visit.
