East Cottage is situated to the north of the Hamlet of Guthrie and is well placed for access to Forfar, Brechin and Arbroath which all provide the main amenities such as shops, restaurants, sports centres and Doctors' surgery. Schooling is available at any of the surrounding towns while private schooling is available at the High School of Dundee and Lathallan primary school.
The property is well positioned for easy access to the A90 Dundee to Aberdeen trunk road, just 15 minutes away. Airports can be found at both Dundee and Aberdeen, providing regular flights to London and other international destinations.
The main rail network can be accessed at nearby Arbroath with services both north and south.

Several well renowned golf courses are within easy reach of the property, including the world-famous championship course at Carnoustie.
