The
Experience

An adventurous approach over gorse-covered moorland to a narrow lane and Balbinny Farm, on whose land Lethnot stands. It’s designed to resemble a pictish broch and built from stones saved from the old steading, but has a grass roof, curved walls and is glass-fronted to take in the views. There’s a ‘next door’ broch too, but you’re not overlooking each other. Walk in to a good sized hall then an open-plan living room with wooden floors, comfortable chairs with sheepskin throws and a large tweedy sofa – but best of all, wrap-around views. The kitchen is sleek and grey and incredibly well thought-out, the dining table has modern chairs which provide a snatch of colour, sliding oak doors cleverly, stylishly, maximise space. Bedrooms are view-filled and simple with upcycled headboards and dressing tables, clever lighting, plain linen curtains; underfloor heated bathrooms will dazzle you with kit. There are floating bean bags for the pool, a tennis court in the garden (maybe a distant hum from the A90), treatments if you want them, walks galore, fishing in the South Esk or a visit to Glamis Castle.

Local points of interest from David Milne

  • Take the boat tour out to the Bell Rock Light house. the world's oldest surviving sea-washed lighthouse. Built between 1807 and 1810 by Robert Stevenson & 11 miles offshore. On the journey see the seals and birds that have taken residence on the reef.
  • Discover the birthplace of J.M.Barrie Kirriemuir. Visit his house and children will love the Peter Pan experience dressing as Peter Pan, Tinkerbell or one of the other characters.Or Discover Glamis Castle the childhood home of The Queen Mother.
  • Spend some time exploring the Angus Glens -through Isla in the west to the Glenshee ski resort or up Glen Esk to the Retreat and Folk Museum.The glens offer sightseeing, walking, cycling as well as the more traditional country pursuits.
  • Take a drive up the picturesque east coast to the stunning Dunottar Castle. Featured in Hamlet with Mel Gibson and most recently in Frakenstein with Daniel Radcliffe & James McAvoy to be released in Oct 2015.
  • Sample the local produce - locally reared beef from the butchers, stunning seafood - scallops, langoustines or Arbroath smokies. Explore one of the regular bustling farmers markets and wash it all down with some of the locally distilled potato vodka.
  • Take a walk on Balbinny's footpaths passing the famous Pictish stones, along the banks of the Lemno burn where you may see buzzards, deer and much more. On your return to Balbinny enjoy a swim or just relax in the jacuzzi and enjoy the view.
