Property Description

Kirklandbank Farmhouse lies a mile from the market town of Alyth in a tranquil woodland setting on the edge of the Highlands. The farmhouse has spectacular elevated views across the Vale of Strathmore to the Sidlaw Hills. The accommodation sleeps 10 and is spread over two wings, each with a double and twin bedroom (twins convert to superking doubles). A ground floor double room is ideal for restricted mobility guests. Three out of five bedrooms are ensuite - one twin and double share a shower room. The farmhouse has been renovated to the highest standard with traditional features, modern facilities and contemporary soft furnishings.
The kitchen/dining room has ample space for family dining and has a woodburner and TV. The sitting room has stunning panoramic views south over the farm and east over the orchard. It has a woodburner, TV, DVD player, Wii, iPod docking station and board games. Linen, towels, electricity, central heating, WiFi and the first basket of logs are included. The house has half an acre of private garden with a south facing lawn and patio, woodland and drying green. Guests may use the orchard and the gated pond garden.
Our location is ideal for all kinds of outdoor activities. Mountain bike and walking trails, golfing and fishing are minutes away. There is abundant wildlife on the doorstep – red squirrels, deer, hares and lapwing are common. We are a short drive from the Angus glens, the Glenshee ski centre and 6 miles from the Cairngorms National Park.

Marian and Simon look forward to welcoming you to Kirklandbank Farmhouse. The farmhouse is on their small working farm which they run with help from their two sons. They moved to Alyth in 2008 and opened their self-catering farmhouse accommodation in 2015.

They raise a small flock of pedigree Hebridean sheep on the farm which are sold for breeding and meat. The sheep are small and full of character with a black fleece. Lambs are born in April and take a year and a half to mature. The sheep graze directly in front of the farmhouse and the antics of the lambs on a summer evening is a joy to watch. The long maturing time of this breed makes the meat wonderfully tasty. Meat orders are taken for delivery at the end of August. Fresh eggs laid by our free range hens can be bought on site. Guests are welcome to help on the farm: feeding chickens, collecting eggs, gathering the sheep and picking fruit. Guests may also use the gated pond garden.

The farm lies away from tarmac roads between Alyth Community Woodland and The Hill of Alyth and is a tranquil haven for wildlife. Roe deer, hares and a multitude of birds can be found in the garden. Marian, a biologist by training, is happy to advise on local walks and wildlife viewing. She is a trained walk leader and can arrange guided walks in the area. Marian also runs an arts business which specialises in ancient (4000 year old semi-fossilised) Scottish driftwood sculptures from the Caledonian forests (www.driftwoodscotland.com).
