Fishermens' Bothy description

This detached former fisherman’s bothy is one of a small group of houses in a wonderful seaside location, accessed by a rough track and with the stunning beach just yards away. The cottage is quaint and quirky. It is a genuine converted working bothy, with the comfortable living room and kitchen open plan to each other, and a separate bedroom and bathroom. The wood burner adds further to the cosy atmosphere, where you can relax in comfort after a day out walking or taking in the sea air. The house is sheltered by the sand dunes, and just beyond is the magnificent 3-mile crescent of sand which makes up Lunan Bay, one of the finest beaches in Scotland.
The beach is popular with surfers, horse riders and bird watchers. Traditional salmon fishing still takes place here in summertime, with nets strung from poles on the beach to trap fish in the falling tide. The Lunan Water meanders onto the beach in a beautiful estuary. High on a grassy bluff overlooking the river and bay are the ruins of Red Castle, built in the 1200s for King William of Scotland. There is a café 220 yards away offering locally produced food, which is great for breakfast or snacks after a spell on the beach. Further afield, but still within easy reach, the towns of Montrose and Arbroath are well worth a visit, while the Angus Glens offer miles of walking in peace and quiet in total contrast to the beach scenery. In the wider area are many notable places for visits such as Glamis Castle. Shop and pub 5 miles, restaurant 3 miles.
