Scottish Holiday Let Reviews

This was our second visit - and hopefull wont be the last. We have family in the Dundee area and Forfar, so it is an ideal location for us. It is in a beautiful peaceful setting, perfect to just sit and watch the variety of wild birds at the feeder or catch a glimpse of a visiting hare, squirrel or deer.

AM & family

Beautiful, secluded, peaceful location but handy for visiting beaches and towns. Sharon and her husband were welcoming and so friendly and helpful. The cottage was extremely clean and well equipped. The welcoming "goody" pack was fantastic. The outside space was exceptional. The cottage itself had various seating areas and the woods were lovely, we even caught site of hares and deer.


We've been to this gem 3 times now. Every visit is a joy and exactly what you want for an escape. Wildlife around you and views that go on forever. Real fire, long walks and dog friendly; some of the things we love as a family. Recommend this holiday home to those who want to escape the hum drum of everyday life.


We had a lovely stay at Monument Cottage over the New Year holiday. The cottage was warm and welcoming, decorated for Christmas, and Sharon had gone out of her way to make sure we were comfortable: lighting the wood burner for us arriving, providing a generous hamper and keeping us informed by text of weather conditions for our arrival (it was snowing!). 


Beautiful house in amazing surroundings. Sharon and David were very helpful and left a lovely hamper to welcome us. Great walks for our dogs from the door, lots of places to visit nearby. We will most definitely return to this property.


A super property, spacious but cosy at the same time, well equipped and presented in great wooded surroundings that you are free to explore. A real credit to the lovely owners.


Lovely cottage surrounded by woodland, very well equipped, owners lovely, left a lovely welcome basket for us. House is really well located and would recommend.


Cottage superbe dans un bel environnement


We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Monument Cottage. Our stay coincided with the sudden cold snap in March but we were warmly welcomed by Sharon and felt very comfortable in the sensitively modernised cottage. There was lots to explore in the surrounding countryside and an intriguing history to the Panmure Estate (They are not kidding about the monument, it's huge! Built in the 19th century by grateful tenants to thank the Earl for sparing them rent in hard times – it towers high on the hillside above Monikie). Or, we could just it in the sun room and watch the birds, with occasional visits from the hares. And in the evenings light the wood-burning stove. It was also a nice surprise to find a welcome pack of well-chosen essentials in the kitchen when we arrived. Altogether, very relaxing. We were sorry to leave. And highly recommend.


Had a wonderful week at this secluded cottage, surrounded by trees and nature. Arrived to find the cottage immaculately clean, with a lovely welcome pack of food which included homemade jam, and the log fire lit - such a lovely touch. We spent the week exploring the area and watching the wildlife in the garden - we were regularly visited by deer, as well as woodpeckers, jays and voles. Would thoroughly recommend and will be back.


Our 3rd time staying at Monument cottage and as always it was perfect. The beautiful cottage is equipped with everything you need and more. Its warm and welcoming to come back to after exploringn the woods. Location is ideal, close enough to amenities and places to visit, yet you feel like you are in your own idyllis world when back at the cottage. Sharon & Dave are welcoming and make sure that you have everything you need.
