Dating from around 1870, Firth Farmhouse is a two storey traditional stone building with a slate
roof. The farmhouse is centrally located within the subjects and the adjacent farm buildings lie
to the north.
Firth Farm lies approximately five miles north of Carnoustie which is well known for the
Carnoustie Golf Links that often hosts the Open Golf Championship. The town offers a range
of amenities including shops, services and recreational facilities. There are excellent transport
links via the rail station and nearby A92 dual carriageway both offering excellent commuter links
to the cities of Dundee and Aberdeen.
About 11 miles to the south west is the thriving city of Dundee, Scotland’s fourth largest. The
city is home to the new and already renowned V & A International Centre for Design which
opened in September 2018 which, in turn, sits next to Scott’s ship Discovery.
There are an excellent range of supermarkets, shops, and amenities. Comics such as the
Beano and the Dandy have long been published in Dundee with the city being historically
known for its “jute, jam and journalism”. The University of Dundee is highly regarded as is the
NHS teaching hospital at Ninewells. In 2014 Dundee was recognised by the United Nations as
the UK’s first UNESCO City of Design for its diverse contributions to fields including medical
research, comics and video games. Private schooling is available at the High School of Dundee
and St. Leonards in St. Andrews.
Home to an array of wildlife, the area around Dundee provides easy access to some particularly
outstanding and varied countryside with hills, woodland, river, farmland and coastline all close
by. The result is a fine choice for the outdoor enthusiast with walking, cycling and riding all
readily available. Golfers in particular are especially well provided for with an unrivalled selection
of highly rated courses within easy striking distance.
Challenging shooting and fishing may be taken locally whilst the Angus glens such as Isla,
Prosen, Clova and Lethnot are readily accessible. The stunning sandy beaches at Lunan Bay
and St. Cyrus and the red sandstone cliffs at Arbroath are all within reach. There are also a
number of interesting National Trust for Scotland properties in the area including the House
of Dun at Montrose, Barry Mill near Carnoustie and the JM Barrie house, once home to the
creator of Peter Pan, in Kirriemuir. Glamis Castle, ancestral seat of the Earls of Strathmore and
Kinghorne and also childhood home of HM Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, is nearby.
