The Details...

Set in Kincardineshire on the border of the Scottish Highlands, this charming three bedroom cottage easily adapts for stays for families or friends. With an open plan sitting room and kitchen, there’s plenty of room for enjoying an evening glass of wine. Set within the Fasque House Estate, its four hundred acres are the natural home to a host of Scottish wildlife including deer, red squirrels, otters and eagles. This charismatic property can also double as a base from which to explore further afield with Aberdeen and Dundee only an hour away. An easy drive opens up a world of activities to visit, such as Stonehaven beach, which is approximately 30 minutes away.

At this property that sleeps six guests, you’ll find three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The kitchen is fully equipped, and there’s a cosy living room with a 32-inch television in the sitting room, DVD player plus an Xbox 360 and Sonos system. Outside is a large garden with a burn running through trees and woodland and off road parking for up to three cars.

The main attraction is the stately home of Fasque House, dating from 1809 and home of the Gladstone family (including statesman W.E. Gladstone). Laurencekirk is the principal town in the Howe o' the Mearns - Lewis Grassic Gibbon country. To the south lies St. Cyrus National Nature Reserve. On the north west side of the village, set beautifully against the hills beyond, lies the whitewashed Fettercairn Distillery. This dates back to 1824, though much of what you see today is later. A mile to the north of Fettercairn is Fasque, a superb stately home built in 1809 and from 1829 the family home of the Gladstones, whose most famous son was William Gladstone, one of the Prime Ministers to serve under Queen Victoria.
