About this listing

Kirk Wynd Cottage stands as a delightful residence positioned right in the heart of Kirriemuir, a charming town nestled at the base of the picturesque Angus Glens. Adorned with the classic red sandstone exterior, this cottage exudes comfort and warmth within, featuring two bedrooms (one boasting an ensuite shower room) and a spacious, yet inviting, lounge area with a wood-burning stove.

The cottage is located in the quiet narrow street of Kirk Wynd, one of the oldest streets in Kirriemuir, measuring just 158 metres long. The cottage is nestled beside the Glens and Kirriemuir Old Parish Church which was built in 1787 by the famous architect James Playfair. Many trades were originally located in Kirk Wynd including weavers, tailors, milliners and slaters.

Kirk Wynd Cottage was originally two dwellings, ‘West Cottage’ (Listed Category C and dating from 1780) and ‘East Cottage’ (dating from 1714). West Cottage was extended downstairs into East Cottage in the mid 1980’s. In 2013 it was then extensively refurbished and extended upstairs to create the cosy house it is today.

Throughout Kirk Wynd Cottage, tasteful decor creates a bright and inviting atmosphere. The welcoming snug on the ground floor offers a cosy haven with its log burner, sofa bed, and smart TV. Additionally, you’ll find library shelves stocked with books, games, and toys to keep the little ones entertained.

The stylish kitchen/diner is well-appointed, featuring a Rangemaster cooker and a generously sized farmhouse dining table, ideal for leisurely meals.

Upstairs, two bedrooms beckon, one with an ensuite shower room, each furnished with a comfortable double bed. Completing the upper level is a family bathroom featuring a bathtub, perfect for unwinding after a day of adventure in Angus.

Location

Kirk Wynd Cottage is conveniently within walking distance of Kirriemuir’s town center, renowned for its traditional red sandstone houses and charming cobbled streets. Kirriemuir is notably famous for being the birthplace of J.M. Barrie, the author of Peter Pan, and also the hometown of AC/DC frontman Bon Scott – you’ll encounter statues commemorating both Peter Pan and Bon in the town!

Referred to as the ‘Gateway to the Glens,’ Kirriemuir serves as an ideal launching point for exploring the Angus region, whether you’re traveling with family or friends. A short drive leads to the breathtaking Angus Glens, offering opportunities for hiking, cycling, fishing, hunting, or conquering some Munros. If you prefer the beach, beautiful East Coast destinations like Broughty Ferry and Lunan Bay are easily accessible.

Kirriemuir also boasts an 18-hole golf course with scenic views extending north to Glen Clova and Glen Doll. With the A90 dual carriageway just ten minutes away, Kirriemuir also serves as a convenient base for visiting the numerous renowned championship golf courses in the region, including Montrose Golf Links, Carnoustie Golf Links, The Old Course in St Andrews, and Gleneagles.

For the best coffee and cake experience around we highly recommend 88 Degrees, just a short walk from the cottage itself.

Alan, July 2023

“A great wee cottage well located within easy walking distance of bars, coffee shops etc. We were two couples and the place was ideal for that with the two bathrooms. It is well appointed with everything you need, all very clean. Would definitely go back!”

Lucy, September 2023

“I recently had a wonderful 4 night stay at Kirk Wynd Cottage when I was visiting for a wedding at nearby Rottal Steading in Glen Clova. Following a series of unexpected travel nightmares, I arrived later than planned and in the dark, but despite the slightly unusual situation of the parking space and lockbox, the incredibly clear photos and instructions meant that I still found and accessed the cottage easily. The cottage is beautifully renovated and had absolutely everything needed for a comfortable stay. Kirriemuir is a great base for visiting the stunning Angus Glens and castles nearby.”

Fangmiao, September 2023

“Booked for a family get-together, and we had a great time! Mom’s favorite was the kitchen, dad’s favorite was the wood stove, my favorite was the ceiling window, and hubby’s favorite was the church bell. Cozy, clean, and welcoming place. Highly recommended!”
We look forward to welcoming you to Kirk Wynd Cottage!
