Fantastic property with amazing views and lovely garden. Highly recommended.
Absolutely Perfect! Couldnt have found a lovelier home.
The house is really a small castle, so that was awesome. It is a very old building with a lot of history in the town of Broughty Ferry, Dundee. I loved it! It is a short walk down the hill to the train, town with its lovely restaurants and shops and the cozy beach/pier walk on the River Tay. I had the double bed and it was very snuggly, loved my little room. My friends truly enjoyed the master bedroom and its garden view. The house has everything you would need and more for daily needs. I would love to come back with my hubby someday!
Thank you so much for having us Sarah,
Amazing, well equipped house.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Lodge, it was very comfortable and modern inside.
The lodge has been renovated to a very high standard and gardens to the rear are private and again well equipped.
Would definitely recommend this property.

There are many activities in the local and surrounding areas to suit everyone’s needs including horse riding, cycling, mountain biking, skiing, hill walking, theatre, swimming, museums, fishing and golfing. There are also a number of landmarks and beaches which you could visit. Bars & Restaurants The property is within a few steps of Broughty Ferry town centre, where you can enjoy a wonderful selection of bars and restaurants. All tastes are catered for with a fantastic tapas bar, many Indian restaurants, Chinese, fine dining and bar food. By day you can also enjoy the many coffee shops and bar lunches which are on offer. Some of our recommendations include: - Forgan’s: High quality bar & restaurant, and one of our favorites. There are also ceilidhs on at the weekend which should not be missed. - Goa: Our favorite Indian restaurant. It is better to eat in than have a takeaway, and you will not be disappointed. - The Ship Inn: A beautiful area to sit outside on a nice day and enjoy the views of the river Tay – a quaint bar and restaurant which is well worth a visit. - Sol y Sombra Tapas Bar: Serves top rated food of the area – sometimes difficult to get a booking but if you can, definitely take the opportunity. - Tayberry Restaurant: A bit expensive but worth it if you are looking for some fine dining. - Collinson’s: High quality restaurant which comes recommended. - Hons: Our favorite Chinese takeaway. - Visocchi’s: A fantastic Italian restaurant which also serves great ice cream. - Gracies: One of the many coffee shops located on the main street which also serves lovely food during the day. - Jessie’s Kitchen: Located just outside the town centre, but still within walking distance. This is very popular for the beautiful cakes on offer during the day. - Post Office Bar: Good for bar food, and the best place to watch sport in the area. - The Royal Arch: The closest bar to the property, and a worthwhile visit to sample some nice beers and ales. - The Anchor: Great for bar food and a good alternative for watching sport. - Fisherman’s Tavern: Good for bar food, and a quaint bar which is worth a visit. Live Scottish music on Thursday nights which is definitely worth seeing. - Bruach Bar: A really nice upmarket bar which is great for cocktails. - The Fort: A bar where most people end up if you are having a late one.

There are also many more local courses within easy reach of the property, including Monifieth, Panmure (Barry), Arbroath, Letham Grange, etc. Horse Riding The closest and most recommended horse riding school in the area is Rowanlea Riding School (also known locally as Conchie’s). There are good alternatives near Lunan bay (between Arbroath and Montrose) if you want a ride on the beach. Landmarks & Museums Broughty Ferry Castle: Well worth a visit and within walking distance of the property. - Discovery Point (Dundee): This visitor attraction which centres round Captain Scott of the Antarctic’s Dundee built ship RRS Discovery. It’s a fascinating tale of one of the most heroic voyages of exploration ever undertaken and a great day out for all the family - Verdant works (Dundee): Dundee is most famous for the three J’s (Jute, Jam and Journalism). This visitor attraction tells the story of Dundee’s industrial textile heritage in the atmospheric setting of a beautifully refurbished Jute mill building. Explore this amazing building, see (and hear) the machines at work, and step back to a time where the Jute mills were the heart of Dundee. - Dundee Science Centre (Sensation): A science centre for children which is well worth a visit. St Andrews: As well as being the home of golf, there are many reasons to visit St Andrews, which can be reached within a 20-minute drive. St Andrews Cathedral, St Andrews Castle, the golf museum, and the university are just some of the places you could visit.

There are also fantastic beaches in Lunan Bay, which is a 35-minute drive from the property, and St Andrews which can be reached within a 20-minute drive. A fantastic park and playground are located next to Broughty Ferry castle, within easy walking distance of the property. If the weather is not favourable and you are looking to do something with the kids, there are plenty of soft play centres locally. One that we would recommend is Fun Factory which is within easy driving.
