Holiday Cottage Angus Glamis Castle

Holiday Cottage Angus Glamis Castle

Five miles from Forfar, in the fertile valley of Strathmore, is the quaint village of Glamis.
Glamis is set in the rolling hills of Angus, in an area of considerable ancient history. Whilst the village is home to a curious old stone, said to be a monument to King Malcolm II, and some attractive eighteenth-century cottages, its most notable attribute is Glamis Castle.
Spires, turrets, towers and statues will seize your attention initially, but there is so much more to explore in this legendary Castle. With its strong links with history, royalty and fiction, Glamis Castle is one of Scotland’s most impressive visitor attractions.
Stay 20 minutes away, in our self catering cottages and explore the ancient monuments of Angus and Perthshire.

Dunnottar Castle East Coast of Scotland

Visit Dunnottar Castle for an unforgettable experience. A dramatic and evocative ruined cliff top fortress in a truly stunning setting.

As you wander round the extensive buildings - from the keep through the barracks, lodgings, stables and storehouses to the less-ruinous chapel and drawing room - you will discover the importance of Dunnottar, an impregnable Castle that holds many rich secrets of Scotland’s colourful past, helping to bring history alive.

William Wallace, Mary Queen of Scots, the Marquis of Montrose and the future King Charles II, all graced the Castle with their presence. Most famously though, it was at Dunnottar Castle that a small garrison held out against the might of Cromwell’s army for eight months and saved the Scottish Crown Jewels, the ‘Honours of Scotland’, from destruction. Crown, sceptre and sword now take pride of place in Edinburgh Castle.

A darker chapter in the history of Dunnottar is that of the ‘Whig’s Vault’. Find out the gruesome story of the imprissonment in 1685 of when a group of Covenanters who refused to acknowledge the King’s supremacy in spiritual matters.

Originally the home of the Earls Marischal, once one of the most powerful families in the land, the last Earl was convicted of treason for his part in the Jacobite rising of 1715 and his estates, including Dunnottar Castle, were seized by the government.
