A traditional detached farmhouse, perfect for modern family living, situated in a renowned farming area of Angus.
Hayhillock Farmhouse lies in a south facing position with extensive views of the beautiful Angus countryside. It is ideally situated for accessible rural living, combining an attractive countryside location with good access to larger towns and cities such as Arbroath, Dundee and Aberdeen. The historic coastal town of Arbroath is only 10 miles from Hayhillock Farmhouse and so the property is perfectly placed for reaching the town's main amenities and services such as supermarkets, restaurants, doctor and dentist surgeries. Arbroath is known for the famous 'Arbroath Smokie' and its historic Abbey, where the Declaration of Arbroath can be found. The coastal town also boasts several beaches, with the well-known Lunan Bay to the north.
Transport links throughout Arbroath are easily accessed with a railway station providing regular services across Scotland and beyond. Airports can be found in Aberdeen to the North and Edinburgh to the south where regular flights to both UK and further destinations can be accessed. Schooling is available locally at Carmyllie Primary and Arbroath High School in addition to private schooling, which is also found at Lathallan School in Johnshaven or the High School of Dundee.
This area of Scotland provides a wealth of recreational activities. For the golfer, there are several courses within a convenient distance including Arbroath Links, Panmure and Carnoustie. In addition to golf, the ski slopes of Glenshee can be reached in just over an hour's car journey to the north while the Angus Glens offer wonderful and varied walking routes.
From the North and South, take the A90 to Forfar. From Forfar, follow the B9128 Carnoustie road for approximately 6 miles until reaching a crossroads signposted for Carmyllie/Arbroath and Inverarity/Douglastown. Continue on this road and Hayhillock is approximately half a mile on the left.
