About Diana Dalrymple
Gregor (Scottish) and I (Dutch) met in Scotland and I fell in love with the man and his country. We have lived abroad most of our married life in both The Netherlands and Luxembourg where we have been since 1994. However our hearts have always firmly stayed in Bonny Scotland, and we bought our retirement home in Edzell in 2003, so we are all prepared for our return when we give up our expat lives. We are both very keen golfers, and we love to travel the world in pursuit of great courses, but on a great day you just can't beat the stunning scenery and wonderfully welcoming people in Scotland!
Diana Dalrymple purchased this apartment in 2007
Why Diana Dalrymple chose Edzell
Edzell is unique in many ways as it is just a small village with 700 inhabitants but it has every amenity that you can possibly think off. You can be self sufficient on foot and not be bored. That is why we choose it as our retirement location and why we love to come home as often as we possibly can. It has everything from the scenery, to golf courses, to rivers to fish in, to hills to roam, walk, climb and hunt in, to lots of historic sites to visit, to beaches to comb and the city is less than an hour away.
As we love going here so much, we thought that perhaps other visitors would feel the same. However we did want to make sure that our guests would really feel at home and would not miss any home comforts. It was with this in mind that we renovated an 100 year old apartment in the middle of the village high street. It was originally build and owned by a 'painter/decorator' who had his shop downstairs and he leased out the two other little shops. The three shops are still downstairs, now a hairdresser, chemist and, highly acclaimed by our visitors, small restaurant.
What makes this apartment unique
Most people don't even know that our apartment is upstairs when they walk along the village high street. It is lovely to sit in the window and watch village life go by without people even realising! You can park in front of the front door and walk to all the amenities in the village. Get your bread in the morning, have a game of golf, buy a steak for lunch, post that postcard to family, get your haircut, go to the swing park, walk along the river and have a drink and a lovely meal at a hotel. How relaxed is that? For all the more energetic pursuits you just climb in your car and explore all the wonderful things the North East of Scotland has to offer.....We love being in Edzell and we are confident that you will also have a great time and will 'haste ye back'!
