One-Off Feature

Imagine a place which combines history and sustainability with luxury and contemporary design, a place that offers not just rolling farmland and country living but also mountain views and deserted beaches. Welcome to Balbinny.

General Info

Set on a family farm, Balbinny is a unique self-catering development which comprises glass-fronted Steadings which make full use of their outdoor space. The houses are stylish and unique, with private features and a range of modern facilities to share between them, and the setting is unbeatable, boasting 180 degree views across the river South Esk towards the Angus Glens and the rugged Cairngorms beyond. Where better to rest your head after a day exploring the beautiful rural county of Angus?

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

Balbinny sits in the Angus countryside between the market towns of Forfar and Brechin, both of which provide local amenities. There is an extensive network of footpaths accessible from the grounds, leading past the famous Aberlemno Pictish Stones and along the banks of the Lemno burn, and the houses are also ideally placed for exploring the empty beaches at Lunan Bay and St Cyrus as well as the Angus Glens. Glamis Castle and the impressive House of Dun are both within easy reach, Dunnotar Castle is just 40 minutes away, and the cities of Dundee, Perth, Aberdeen and St Andrews are all within an hour’s drive. And don’t forget the huge number of golf courses in the area, not to mention the opportunities for kayaking, fishing, skiing and country pursuits.
