Kamba Cottage Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
This lovely cottage is one of two 17th Century stone-built cottages in the scattered hamlet of East Murthill. There is also a large garden with incredible views and a patio area from which to enjoy them. For the long summer evenings the barbecue offers a great excuse to eat in, although the town of Kirriemuir (just seven miles away) is full of local amenities such as restaurants, pubs and cafes.

Made of lovely red sandstone, the Strathmore valley town of Kirriemuir is often regarded as the gateway to the Angus Glens, some of Scotland's most unspoiled landscapes. JM Barrie - creator of the much-loved children's character, Peter Pan, and subject of the Johnny Depp film 'Finding Neverland', was born in the town and his house is now a museum looked after by the National Trust for Scotland. A statue of 'the boy who never grew up' can be found within Kirriemuir. However, Barrie is not the only literary connection to this charming little town. Nearby Glamis castle was the setting for Shakespeare's 'cursed' play, Macbeth. The historic Pictish Stones at Meigle and the Angus Glens are well worth visiting and offer spectacular views whilst hill walking.

From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.

The cottage was lovely and had ample facilities for us, we really enjoyed our stay.. The owners were friendly and approachable and nothing was too much trouble. We made the most of the facilities and enjoyed being in a fairly rural setting, relaxing and having fun.

We booked the cottage for 3 nights over the new year break and this cosy £1500 which I thought on the expensive side - this was definitely the case given the facilities! The owners are charging high end prices but not delivering high end quality. The beds were really uncomfortable and my husband and I had to sleep separately for the whole 3 nights just to get sleep. It is advertised to sleep 6 but the lay out would only accommodate people with a 3, 1 and 2 due to how beds arranged which is most unlikely. The cottage is tiny with cheap furniture which again was uncomfortable. The pool and hot tub were only available for certain periods and were not great - I think the chemicals were incorrectly applied to be honest. I have to say that if we would have paid half this amount I would not be providing this feedback as you do get what you pay for but on this occasion I felt we didn’t (despite the owner Lynette being lovely and helpful!) I’m afraid we won’t be returning ....

Fantastic cottage holiday.. Was made really welcome on arrival and throughout the week spent in the cottage. Lovely cottage, lovely venue and great sauna, hot tub and pool. The grounds were great for my Damnation to run around and enjoy herself. Would not hesitate in recommending this cottage and venue.

The cottage was snug and warm on arrival with a bottle of wine cooling in the fridge. Under floor heating ensured our dogs dried quickly although to be fair, the weather was kind. The owner Lynette was extremely helpful and friendly and nothing was too much bother. The location is lovely and quiet within easy reach of a local town to get supplies. The swimming pool was an absolute bonus for my three children and again, we couldn't ask for more help from Lynette who let us just get on with it. I would definitely recommend it to friends and family without hesitation.

Fantastic hosts.. Great holiday experience. Easy to get to many locations once we worked out that M90 was key route North and South and that best access (on and off the A90) is at Finavon

We had a great weekend stay at the Kamba Cottage. The hosts were lovely and left us a bottle of fizz to enjoy for a friends 21st birthday. We used the pool, hot tub, sauna and enjoyed walks at the beach near by. It was peaceful and cosy and we would definitely go back! Thanks again.

This is a brilliant place to stay with kids that love a swim! ! The location is also great for exploring Angus . We had a great time and will definitely come again. Thank you! !

The cottage was warm and comfortable, the bedrooms airy and clean. There was plenty of hot water and it was well equipped. The use of the swimming pool at the house was wonderful.

Our second stay at Kamba cottage and another great holiday. Myself, Wife, Sons 10 & 6 and Father and Step Mother came this time round and we found found it to be a fantastic base to explore the surrounding area from. The beauty of Kamba is that you also have the added bonus of swimming pool, sauna, hot tub, swings, trampoline and plenty of space for kids to ride on their bikes or scooters so you'll struggle to hear the dreaded "I'm borrrred". The surrounding area is ideal for day trips and you cant beat the stag in Forfar for great food. If you do go great places to visit are * The Stag (Forfar) * Glamis Castle * Dunnottar castle * Stonehaven * Johnshaven * Glen Cova * Glen Cova Hotel ( climbers bar ) * Luna beach (take a pic nic, windbreaker, change of clothes and your set for day.) Loads more places worth visiting, too many to mention......

October 2014
Great getaway, quite (our phones had no signal apart from in the car - which was GREAT), very relaxing. Played lots of board games, watched DVD's, read books. The pool & hot tub were fantastic. Totally chilled experience, family couldn't be nicer. Definitely would recommend going if you want a chilled phone free break

Relaxing environment, with welcome access to the swimming pool for the kids. It was nice to not be in a crowded space. The owners family were very friendly and helpful.

The owners are very friendly and hospitable and provided useful information about places to visit. The cottage is in a lovely setting and it's well equipped and very cosy. We made good use of the lovely swimming pool during our stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and look forward to returning in the future.

A lovely and well equipped cottage with underfloor heating . The indoor swimming pool, sauna and hot tub in the owners house was a great attraction. The owners were friendly and helpful. Perfect relaxing getaway. Booked again for next year.

The cottage came with use of the owners swimming pool and jacuzzi.

A well equipped & comfortable holiday house. The pool, sauna & hot tub were such a treat. We really enjoyed the whole experience, & the grand kids had great fun befriending the various animals around. We would certainly come again.

A safe, comfortable place for the dogs and the grandchildren. We loved the animals, the pool and the tranquillity.
May 2012
We went in winter so there was a nice crisp layer of sparkly snow, the moon was full, adding to this there was the comfort of underfloor heating and all mod cons, including a indoor swimming pool which has lovely windows looking on to the garden. With it being central, there were lots of nice scenery and quaint villages to visit. Not far from the coast either. The family have a lama in an adjacent field and two ponies which we loved feeding them apples and carrotts. Perfect relaxing getaway. Lovely owners whom we hardly saw. 5 star. Kindest Reguards Lisa.

Lovely cottage and used the pool every day. Our little boy loved feeding the ponies and lambs. Would go back.
Miss Hathaway
February 2012
The underfloor heating, the swimming pool, the sauna and the grounds were lovely too. There was a resident heron in the pond, ducks and rabbits in the field, a llama and two wee ponies nearby which we fed apples and carrots too. Wonderful location, design and friendly owners.

The owner was very friendly and the property was very clean and well equipped. The garden was completely enclosed - that was great for letting our dog out.
September 2011
The cottage is beautifully decorated and was spotlessly clean. Very well equiped with everything we needed for a break with two girls age 11 and 12 and our pet pug. The garden is completely secure so our dog could wander in and out. The swimming pool, hot tub and sauna in the owners house were open for us to use whenever we wanted and the owners were really friendly. Not many places to eat out but there is a large tesco in Forfar about 5 miles away so no problem with shoppping. We had lovely days out in Glamis, Kirriemuir (which was a good cycle ride from the cottage), shopping was good in Dundee and lovely deserted sandy beaches in Montrose and Carnoustie both of which have good childrens play areas as well. The cottage was really warm and cosy so even in winter it would be great. The beds were so comfy and upstairs there is a mezzanine Area which gives some separate private space ideal for teenagers The best thing according to our girls was the llama and two Shetland ponies in the grounds which they could pet and feed apples to - highly recommended.
Mr Mrs Holden

We enjoyed our holiday in Forfar and visited Dundee/Aberdeen, Glamis and many other places of interest including the Pictish trail which was great. With regard to accommodation, the owner was lovely as was the property and ideal for our little dog too. The beds were extremely comfortable.
Mrs Stead

We stayed at both cottages with my sister and they were both lovely. It was great to have use of the pool. The owner was very helpful and on hand at most times and gave us useful information.
