A fairytale castle in the Angus Glens, within easy reach of the coast and the Cairngorms. Perfect for history lovers and those looking for an active family break.

This enchanting castle is steeped in history. On the 30,000-acre Airlie estate, the castle was built in the 18th century to replace an older building, parts of which still remain. It is atmospheric both inside and out, with numerous nooks and crannies to explore. If you're daunted by the prospect of staying somewhere so large, don't be: two hours of housekeeping per day are included in the price, and catering can be arranged. For days out, Carnoustie is 26 miles away, and St Andrews 32 miles away. There are numerous local walks through the Angus Glens, and salmon and trout fishing on the local rivers. The nearest pub and shop are in Kirriemuir, 4 miles away.

Inside, you'll find vaulted ceilings, original features, and several informal and formal social spaces. On the ground floor, there is a light, long playroom with a table tennis table and music centre and doors leading out to the garden, a cosy snooker room with darts board and open fire. The large kitchen has a four-oven Aga, a dishwasher, fridge/freezer and a large breakfast table. There is a separate utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer. On the first floor is a drawing room with comfortable sofas and an open fire. The formal dining room seats up to 14 and also has an open fire. The library, lined with vintage books, is set up with a TV, sofas and another open fire. There are seven bedrooms spread over the second and third floors. They include a master bedroom with a four-poster bed and an en-suite bathroom, one double bedroom and an emperor bedroom that shares a bathroom and a king size bedroom with en-suite.  The third floor has one single bedroom, one king size bedroom leading to the nursery room with 3 single beds, 2 family bathrooms and a single WC.

We had an amazing week at Airlie castle with extended family (age 9 to 80). Such a beautiful location and house full of character. We made full use of the tennis court, table tennis and snooker table and loved the walks around the estate, the river and relaxing in the grounds and felt little need to venture out too often. Would love to return one dRead moreay. Hide
