Gordon and Anne have farmed in the Carmyllie area for many years. Their house, Croftsmuir Steading, was originally a farm building, home to cows and calves and was renovated to a two storey dwelling in 2017. Upstairs is available to our guests with a double room and a twin room and private facilities. Adjoining the bedrooms there is a large sitting room with a panoramic view overlooking a creative garden and beyond, a vision of the Tay estuary. The furnishings are luxurious where our visitors relax, read, watch television or catch up with the day’s events with our reliable Wi-Fi.
Gordon and Anne are delighted that Visit Scotland have awarded them ‘Taste Our Best’ where breakfasts are cooked from ingredients that are sourced locally. Also Visit Scotland have awarded the hosts the ‘I Know Angus’ award as, being indigenous, has helped their history knowledge to become unsurpassed and would benefit the needs of ancestral tourists.
Croftsmuir Steading is ideally situated to most attractions in Angus and Dundee. Only a 15 minute journey takes you to Arbroath Abbey which has a welcoming Visitor’s Centre with regular tours viewing the 12th century ruin. Also in Arbroath there is the Signal Tower Museum, a source of information about the Bell Rock Lighthouse, built by Robert Stevenson and Hospitalfield House is worthy of a visit - a historic building and home to creative arts, gardens and tea room.
From Croftsmuir the famous Championship Carnoustie Golf course can also be reached in 15 minutes and is a venue for the British Open. A thirty minute journey can take you to Dundee, the City of Discovery, where there is ever increasing attractions, such as the Discovery Museum, the 19th Century Frigate Unicorn, the Verdant Works, the developing River Front and of course the up and coming V&A. Crossing the River Tay from Dundee, the famous St Andrews golf courses can be reached in 30 minutes.
Another 20 minute trip from Croftsmuir can take you along the coast, north of Arbroath to the ancient fishing village of Auchmithie. This village can also be reached from Arbroath by taking an exhilarating walk along the cliffs. Beyond Auchmithie there is the magnificent Lunan Bay beach and now home to a welcoming café.
Montrose, 30 minutes from Croftsmuir, is a pleasant town with many attractions such as the Montrose Basin Visitor Centre and the Air Station Heritage. The Angus Glens are within easy reach passing through towns such as Kirriemuir (birthplace of J.M. Barrie), Brechin with the ancient cathedral and Round Tower or the attractive village of Edzell.
