The cottage is immaculate with everything you need for a wonderful stay. The walk around the castle grounds was brilliant for our dog in the early evening. Close to Montrose for all your shopping and close to a main road for your adventures but nestled in a quiet rural area.

We had a fantastic couple of days at Yew Cottage. It's a beautiful cottage with a cosy log burner for chilly evenings. A lovely gift of biscuits and tea and treats for the dog was most welcome. We enjoyed long leisurely walks around the castle and to Boddin point. The garden is a little suntrap. Such a peaceful location.
