This is a great house for a family that wants to make short trips to Scotland’s countless beautiful scenic spots and still come home to utter convenience.
Our house is a recently renovated 1950's 4 bedroom detached villa in the lovely exclusive west end of Dundee. It is located close to the sea, but also the countryside, with large south facing rear gardens. It is currently set up to sleep 5 people however there is additional space to sleep at least another 1 - 2 people.
In addition to 4 bedrooms we also have 2 communal bathrooms, living room, large kitchen/dining room and sun room. We have the regular equipment such as a dishwasher, washing machine, tv, dvd, vhs, hi fi, wii, xbox 360. Outside there is a patio area for entertaining complete with bbq and table/chairs. There is also use of bikes and plenty other outdoor sports.
Dundee is Scotland’s fourth largest city, located on the East coast upon the banks of the River Tay, the longest river in Scotland. Dundee is very central to the majority of other historic Scottish cities, towns and villages and a return journey to many can be completed in a day. For instance, by car or public transport you can be in Edinburgh or Aberdeen within 1 hour, Glasgow within 1 ½ hours and Inverness/highland region or the English borders within 3 hours. Within all these cities, there is plenty of entertainment to be had from shopping and nightlife, sports and cultural festivals, sightseeing and hill walking, fishing and whisky brewery tours.
For the golf lovers, famous courses such as Carnoustie and St Andrews are within a 25 minute drive. Additionally there are hundreds of other beautiful courses within striking distance, after all this is Scotland ‘The Home of Golf’. Perhaps our ideal swapper may want to walk/climb some of the many Scottish Munros or the highest mountain in the UK, Ben Nevis. Also there are great trips to visit some of the famous castles, battlegrounds and hunt for the famous Loch Ness monster!
Dundee has good public transport links and is served by a small airport, train and bus stations. Alternatively International Airports are located within Glasgow and Edinburgh which are both served by all major carriers.
We are also located very close to the major arterial highway through Dundee and within 5 minutes there are a large amount of shops, cinema, ice rink, golf courses and a massive country play park which is great for the family. Within 15 minutes you can be on the local blue flag rated beach or in downtown Dundee checking out the shops, entertainment and Dundee’s infamous ‘Jam, Jute and Journalism’ history.
