Balkello Woodland House smallholding specialises in pedigree sheep, with working sheep dogs that appear regularly at sheep dog trials (amazing to watch them at work!). Surrounded by agriculture there are local market towns with farmers markets at Forfar and Dundee. Local agricultural shows throughout summer are also well worth a visit.

Auchterhouse is in an ideal location in Angus within easy reach of surrounding counties Perthshire, Fife and Dundee, each within 10 miles from Balkello giving a huge range of different places, interests and activities to enjoy.

The nearest city Dundee (some claim the sunniest place in Scotland!!) located on the banks of the Tay estuary, is steeped in history. Attractions include RRS Discovery (Captain Scott's ship), and the Verdant Works which weaves the tale of jute with the life and work of old Dundee. There is modern technology at Dundee Science Centre - Sensation, Mills Observatory, art and culture at The McManus, Dundee's Art Gallery and Museum or Dundee Contemporary Arts (DCA). The city has plenty of shopping, cinemas, ice skating, a leisure pool and an abundance of restaurants and bars. You may also bump into the locals, Oor Wullie, Desperate Dan or Dennis the Menace!

Dundee is going through a regeneration program, exciting seeing it evolve, reinventing itself as a destination for food and art.

Being near the coast it is not far from terrific beaches and harbours with the north to Broughty Ferry, Carnoustie, Lunan Bay, Arbroath and Montrose and heading south to St Andrews, Anstruther and Elie with lots of idyllic little hidden beaches in between.

Local golf courses within 5 miles include Downfield, Camperdown and Caird Park. Piperdam, Strathmore, the famous Old Course at St Andrews and Carnoustie and many more are within easy reach. There is also an impressive choice of country parks as well as the Dundee Botanic Gardens, on gently sloping land overlooking the banks of the River Tay.

There are lots of exciting places of history to explore. Glamis Castle, famed as the childhood home of the Queen Mother is a must for visitors, Broughty Castle, House of Dunn and Scone Palace. Dunnottar, Stirling and Edinburgh Castles are little bit further but worth the distance.

A bit of history on the doorstep is the Dovecot and Earthhouse in Tealing with many pictish stones locally including Aberlemno Sculptured Stones.

Only 2 miles takes you to the popular Auchterhouse Country Sports which features clay pigeon shooting. 6 miles to Scotcart indoor carting.

There are many local cycle routes and walks from short strolls, either on the coast or in the hills, to more challenging walks over steeper and more rugged terrain. In winter months sledging is at your backdoor, skiing at Glenshee is only 32 miles away.

Although we are a busy family there is usually someone here to answer any questions and will do our best to make your stay enjoyable.

The apartment is a self - contained part of a family home on a small farm. Neil keeps pedigree sheep which are in the surrounding fields, his mum Mary keeps Collie sheepdogs that are good to watch at work and train. I've always wanted to keep hens as I love watching and talking to them, thinking about the lovely fresh free range eggs, hopefully soon but until I can fulfill my dream I'll keep up my work as a soil ecologist!

Amazing. The setting, the apartment and the hospitality were all over and above what I expected. If you are looking for the genuine Scottish experience, I would not hesitate to recommend Sandra's property.

Nestled inside the countryside in Dundee, Sandra's place is a true delight. It's quiet, peaceful, and serene. The grounds are lovely; walking about you'll see beautiful landscapes, gorgeous grounds, and cute little sheep! In all my life, I don't think I've ever slept better! So comfortable and quiet. The town is wonderful--everything you need you'll find and then some. Strongly recommend the place. Bravo, Sandra!
