Had a good stay in a very recommendable cottage, not modern, but really charming, very spacious, everything thought of , friendly host and very nice and helpful people, who look after the cottage and the guests.. Thanks for having us

Had a fabulous time away with the family in these mad times.. House was very homely and loved the personal touches from the family. Owner and groundsman were very accommodating and happy to answer any questions... felt like nothing was a problem. Wish we'd booked for two weeks not just one! Definitely be back and would recommend to anyone wanting a quiet, peaceful week. thanks to all :-)

This was our third stay here and by Tuesday we were already talking about next year - that's how much we love it.. The house really feels like home, it's so welcoming. From Sunday lunch at the Drovers to a lovely walk (in the sunshine!) along gorgeous Lunan Bay and a visit to the Gin Bothy, we had a blast. Can't wait to be back.

Myself, mum & son stayed here for 2 days over Christmas with my other family members here for a full week. I was pleasantly surprised with how much bigger the property was when we got inside & the layout worked really well for us all. I enjoyed a couple of nice walks with the dog, but in all honesty he had plenty of space in the secure garden to roam. The view from the living room just added to the cosiness of what was a relaxing break for us all. I particularly like the owners decision to stick the authentic farmhouse feel with lots of family items, books and beautiful pieces of furniture. We have already talked about returning in the Summer to experience a bit more of what the garden may have to offer.

This house has the worst smell of damp in it , and all the furniture in it is very old can smell the damp of it as well. no wood for stove . and one of the stove fires wasnt working . Towels are horrible need replaced and the couch omg worst couch i have ever sat on . needless to say we had to come home early as the smell in house is horrible and fousty .NEEDS TO BE DEEP CLEANED. The carpets are filthy. Was no information on anything recent at all the only saver was the tennis table in games room . i could say more but wont , the couch so low to the floor i have come away with the worst backache ever . everthing there needs painted and refreshed very unhappy with our stay there

We all had an amazing break away.. The Grandkids enjoyed the space both indoors and outdoors. The views were delightful . It lived up to our expectations and more .

We have arrived home after a week at Brae of Airlie Farm.. We had a wonderful time and found the property to be homely & very comfortable with enough space for a group of friends to relax. Perfectly situated to explore the Angus Glens. You MUST visit The Drovers Inn at Memus for an excellent meal that doesn’t break the bank. Bill the caretaker is just over the road if you need anything and is very welcoming.

Having read the previous review I'm left wondering if this is the same cottage! We were there last year and loved it so much we'd rebooked for this year before we left. Had we had our dates fixed we'd have already done the same for next year. The house is unfailingly warm and welcoming; it is comfortable and spacious. We had a hiccup with the heating, went across the road and saw Bill and he sorted it right away. We had lovely walks lochside and a glorious day at Lunan Bay. (We offset the exercise with cakes at the Wee Bear and scones at Peels Farm.) The dog loved pottering in the garden. All in all, we can't wait to get back next year.

Very dirty and disapointed that a representative of Sykes felt the need to tell the owner that I was being harsh .. They said it was dust on pictures . No it wasn’t and I send photos of the engrained dust on appliances. They were told the heating was low , again that is not what I said . The heating was off , due to being on a timer .... in the middle of winter in Scotland . And no welcome back to say where boiler was.

We have visited the Brae of Airlie farmhouse before and absolutely loved it.. We said we'd go back and it took 3 years but we returned. It was just as lovely as we had remembered it. There were two of us and two dogs so the facilities were more than adequate for us, however it's worth noting that there is only one shower so if large groups stay, sharing would be required. The house and garden is perfect and if the owners ever wanted to sell we'd upsticks in a heartbeat! The location of the house is fantastic, within a 40 minute drive of many interesting places including Arbroath, the Cairngorms, Glamis Castle and Queens View to name just a few. Also not to be missed is the 'Wee Bear Cafe', a dog friendly cafe right near the farmhouse and a lovely place to stop for a well earned coffee and piece of cake after a walk around the reservoir. We visited in Autumn this time and were able to pick apples from the many trees in the garden. We observed deer in the field beyond and geese flying overhead as well as pheasants in the garden - such a treat. The house is in need of new glazed doors as the seals appear to have blown which affected the view from the window but still perfectly adequate. The wood burning stoves are wonderful as are the many books to read of all different genres. Overall, 10/10 in our opinion. We will definitely return, hopefully with our family.

It is a fabulous house.. It's like a tardis. Amazing views across the Strathmore Valley. Will book again for next year. Just a little tlc needed.

Beautiful surroundings.. However the farm house was disappointing. Was grubby and neglected. Required a complete refurbishment to bring up to standard. Some of the mattresses, duvets and pillows were stained. Carpets and link dirty and torn. White foods were excellent.

I booked this cottage knowing it was 2 star, the standard was not good, the games room was awful, dart board with 1 usable dart, grubby chair, a lot of the lights in the cottage didn’t have all bulbs working, all the plates had chips out of them.. On the plus side, beautiful views and gardens, the cottage was clean, all white goods and range cooker looked like new, load of interesting books. This cottage could be gorgeous with a little bit of TLC, it really wouldn’t take much financially. Oh and one last thing the old silver cross pram with the scary porcelain doll is something that would be best removed!

We had a really enjoyable stay at Brae of Airlie Farmhouse with its spacious accommodation, extensive range of facilities and quiet rural setting with wonderful views.. There are good bird watching sites and short walks nearby. The local small towns are easily accessed with one of Scotland's best fish and chip shops in Alyth whilst Perth, Dundee, Dunkeld, the coast and the south Cairngorm glens are all within 45mins drive.

Lovely house in a lovely spot - we're already booked again for next year..

The cottage is in a lovely quiet location , with some lovely surrounding countryside.. The cottage itself could do with some updating , the sofas in the living room could do with being replaced as they were very uncomfortable to sit on, we actually went home a day early because of this , the main bedroom the headboard was not even attached to the bed and part of the bedroom floor sagged and did not feel quite safe. There was no instructions left in the house that we could see and so struggled initially to use the cooker. I think this cottage is just a bit run down and could do with a bit of money spent on it.

We spent a week here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay wished it was longer. Loch and walk to Kirriemuir just 5/7 mins up the road. All major towns just 25 to 40 mins away. The cottage had everything. Will be going again

Lovely location, cottage very spacious and comfortable with an abundance of extremely interesting books.. The garden was a delight even in mid October, we can only imagine how special it would be in mid summer. A very peaceful location which was ideal for children and (well behaved) pets. So much to do and so relaxing that the TV was not turned on all week although the reliable WiFi was used, mostly by the Grandchildren! The Grandchildren and adults made full use of the large games room. A true delight and we would love to return at a future date. Homely and relaxing. We spoke to Vere ( the owner) before we arrived and he could not have been more helpful. Can highly recommend for a relaxing and comfortable family holiday.

We loved it, it felt like a home rather than a holiday property. Brae of Airlie Farm was very comfortable and has a great kitchen, we loved the huge lounge.The wood burning stoves were burning when we arrived and the house was cosy and warm. Absolutely magnificent views

The location of the property was perfect and the house was lovely. It was spacious yet cosy and contained everything needed to enjoy a lovely week. The views from the window are breathtaking; as the light of the day changed, so the views changed with it which we found quite mesmerising. There was a superb games room, large private gardens, and good WiFi connection. It was like staying in a friends family home.

The farmhouse was in an amazing location with spectacular views. A comfortable and very spacious family home that we would definitely return to again and recommend to friends and family.

The cottage was in a fabulous location, with beautiful views across the valley. It had all the 'mod cons' you could hope for and the provision of a generous load of logs and coal for the wood burners was great. We saw Roe Deer on the boundaries of the cottage and lots of birds, including Whitethroats and Yellow hammers, which was a treat. The cottage is a great 'base' location for exploring the surrounding area; we visited Arbroath and walked the Seaton Cliffs and sampled the fabulous 'Smokies'; we drove up through Glen Shee to Balmoral and sampled the Whiskeys at the Royal Lochnagar Distillery; and, took in the Den of Alyth woodland walks. We would definitely book to stay in future and would recommend to friends and family.
