The Experience

So much space! Even if everybody comes you shan’t feel on top of one another. Children can swarm quite safely: the lawn could house a small tented village and beyond that a track leads down to the South Esk river. Teeming with salmon and trout it’s also grand for splashing about, paddling, skimming stones and having idle picnics on the bank. You’re surrounded by woods, then further afield moors and the Angus Glens for bracing walks.

Graceful sash windows allow light to cascade in, there are many books and maps, a games room with table football and ping pong and a door which goes nowhere for games of hide and seek. Cook together with the fire burning merrily; eat at a shining dining table with views over the gardens; watch roe deer, red squirrels and many birds.

Bedrooms (one downstairs) are peaceful, light and airy, with goose down pillows. This is a house which loves visitors and visitors will love this house.

The neighbourhood

The house sits in a secluded part of the estate surrounded by farms, woods and estate land. Walkers will enjoy the nearby Cortachy and Dykehead paths, nature lovers will be watching the birds in the garden or visiting RSPB Loch of Kinnordy Nature Reserve - seven miles. The attractive town of Kirriemuir is nearby and Peter Pan fans can visit the birthplace and museum dedicated to J M Barrie.


David Ogilvy & Tarka Kings

David Ogilvy, the heir to the Earldom and his wife Tarka Kings (an artist) share their time between their London home and Airlie Castle. Their shared love of music and the arts is very evident in all of their places and you may see some of Tarka's works on the walls. You are greeted by friendly Dot, the housekeeper, who can answer any questions, and you will see gardeners and estate workers now and then.
