Able to sleep six people in one double, one single and one family room with three single beds – accessed via a spiral staircase from the living-area and with an en suite bathroom – this charming property is ideal for a group of friends or a couple travelling with teenage children who need their own space.

This lovely cottage is one of two 17th Century stone-built cottages in the scattered hamlet of East Murthill. The cottage also comes with access to the owner’s indoor swimming pool, Jacuzzi and sauna. There is also a large garden with incredible views and a patio area from which to enjoy them.

For the long summer evenings the barbecue offers a great excuse to eat in, although the town of Kirriemuir (just seven miles away) is full of local amenities such as restaurants, pubs and cafes.


Nice cottage in lovely area - poor beds though
We got a lovely welcome here at Kamba Cottage when we stayed for NY - the lady was very pleasant and helpful (as she was throughout our stay). Bottle of Prosecco, some Scottish shortbread, Christmas decorations and the heating being on full blast were all nice touches. The cottage is spacious and was more than enough for our family of four, plus our dog (garden is fenced in so all safe for her too). It had all the amenities - so why the three stars and not more - well, for me it was a bit tired and had been decorated too cheaply for what we paid (albeit an inflated number as it was NY). The beds were very cheap and uncomfortable- my wife ended up sleeping upstairs on a single bed as she could not use the double. So lack of good sleep was my major reason for the lower score. The wardrobes, settees etc seemed very cheap and really detracted from what is a lovely cottage. The swimming pool was nice (could be a bit warmer, but ?ok once you are in?!), jacuzzi for 2 was nice (hot too) as was the sauna. I wouldn?t visit the area again (as seen what it had to offer), but for those that are - we enjoyed Lunan Bay, Reekie Linn, fish and chips on Arbroath harbour, wandering around St Andrews and (on the way home) Stirling. Food at Drovers was good.

Lovely pet/child friendly cottage in the country
The cottage was snug and warm on arrival with a bottle of wine cooling in the fridge. Under floor heating ensured our dogs dried quickly although to be fair, the weather was kind. The owner Lynette was extremely helpful and friendly and nothing was too much bother. The location is lovely and quiet within easy reach of a local town to get supplies. The swimming pool was an absolute bonus for my three children and again, we couldn't ask for more help from Lynette who let us just get on with it. I would definitely recommend it to friends and family without hesitation.

Great birthday weekend away!
We had a great weekend stay at the Kamba Cottage. The hosts were lovely and left us a bottle of fizz to enjoy for a friends 21st birthday. We used the pool, hot tub, sauna and enjoyed walks at the beach near by. It was peaceful and cosy and we would definitely go back! Thanks again.

The owners were extremely welcoming and friendly; nothing was too much trouble for them. We will be returning to Kamba Cottage and would highly recommend it.

The cottage was warm and comfortable, the bedrooms airy and clean. There was plenty of hot water and it was well equipped. The use of the swimming pool at the house was wonderful.
