The boathouse really is a one off! A unique luxury hideaway for couples, located right on the water’s edge. This stylish conversion of a Victorian boathouse offers luxury waterside accommodation for two in the rolling Angus countryside near Dundee. The former boathouse, built in 1855, has been totally refurbished and updated with superb facilities and is the perfect bolthole for...

After a little bit of confusion (blame the sat nav) about the location, we were quickly checked in by the friendly team at Reception and given plenty of information to help with our stay. Our first impression of the Boathouse was extremely positive. While it's less secluded than the photos could imply, it sits on the water in a lovely...

My husband and I enjoyed a stay at the Leannan Lodge recently and apart from the torrential lane it was just the break we needed.

This accomodation is very luxurious, well set up with quality fittings throughout. However it is NOT as secluded as the website pictures make it appear, there are other lodges to the side, behind it and across the fishing lake (which is not very big) - it is the only one on the banks of the lake. It was very peaceful...

We stayed for 4 nights in June 2006. The cottage is AMAZING - never seen anything like it in my life, the surroundings are picture postcard.
