Sitting at the top of the red sandstone cliffs above Auchmithie's picturesque harbour, Coastguards Cottage is a quaint holiday retreat which is steeped in history. Dating from the late 1700s this terraced holiday cottage was once home to those involved in apprehending the smugglers who used Auchmithie's caves, cliffs and beaches to smuggle rum ashore. Recently refurbished the self catering cottage has retained much of its charm and character, with stone walls and wood burning stove complimented by modern conveniences. The open plan living area has a kitchen with breakfasting island, dining area and wood burner, whilst the cosy sitting area is screened slightly by the stone chimney, and has comfy sofas and large TV. A ground floor bedroom has a ¾ sized double bed, whilst the master bedroom with a king sized double has wonderful sea views out to the infamous Bell Rock Lighthouse. On the attic floor is a charming single bedroom with a cosy combed ceiling.
There is a lovely sun porch which over looks the delightful sunny garden which in turn leads down to the cliff top walk. From here bird watchers can get great views of Guillemots, Razorbill, Eider Duck, Rock Doves, Fulmars, Herring Gulls, Shags and Kittiwakes, not to mention comical Puffins too. This idyllic holiday cottage in Angus is a perfect retreat for peace and relaxation, and the sound of gulls and sea.
