East Mains is a small traditional Angus farmhouse situated on a working farm within a 20-minute drive of Glamis Castle and Carnoustie, 5 minutes from Forfar Golf Club and Rescobie Loch. We are a member of the Scottish Tourist Board (now known as Visit Scotland) and have attained a Quality Award of 4 stars. The cottage sleeps 6.

The house enjoys a fine outlook over the Angus countryside and there are some pleasant woodland walks around the farm.

We have for rainy days, a games room adjacent to the house, comprising table tennis, pool and darts (darts not supplied). There is also a private tennis court nearby.

Off the kitchen is the lounge, which is comfortable and spacious with recently installed wood burning stove, a real benefit in the winter months. Integral TV/Video, books and games for nights indoor.

Within the house the accommodation includes a pine panelled utility room with washing machine, tumble dryer, sink and shower room off.
The kitchen is very spacious with fitted wooden units, an Esse oil fired cooker, a further hob and cooker, fridge, freezer, microwave and recently installed dishwasher.
