    In the heart of the Scottish countryside close to the sea lies the Arbuthnott Estate, home of the Arbuthnott family for over 800 years and more than thirty-five generations. Arbuthnott Holiday Cottages are a perfect base to explore this area of fascinating history. Situated just 3½ miles from the coast and with easy access to Royal Deeside, guests can have energetic or relaxing holidays here - the choice of activities is endless! The road network is very good, making it an ideal location from which to explore much of Scotland.
    Comfortably furnished, they make a great choice at any time of the year, to enjoy the peace and solitude of this unspoilt area. Cloud Howe is one of three cottages situated in the Old School, which has been sympathetically restored to provide cosy cottages, and are named after the renowned novels of local author Lewis Grassic Gibbon. The fourth property, Garden Cottage, is situated 500 yards from the Old School in a secluded, peaceful spot near the garden at Arbuthnott House, but still less than 10 minutes in the car to Inverbervie. The house is officially open to the public 10 days a year, although the owners are delighted to welcome small groups to the house and gardens, appealing to many enthusiasts.
    All cottages are well furnished and equipped with their own garden areas. There are plenty of walking and cycling opportunities nearby. Inverbervie with its shingly beach and good coastal walks is just 3½ miles away, with many of the facilities you may need. Just 9 miles away is the bustling market town of Stonehaven with an outdoor heated pool – brilliant in summer. Take a trip to Dunnottar Castle, a proud monument overlooking the sea near Stonehaven and the inspiration for the location of the Disney film, Brave. Montrose, with clean sandy beaches, golf courses and leisure activities is just 13 miles away and it is easy to access the Angus Glens from here. You may want to travel on the Victorian Heritage Trail, through Edzell and Fettercairn towards Banchory.
    Beach 3½ miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 3½ miles.
    Cloud Howe can be booked together with Sunset Song (ref UK11130), Grey Granite (ref UK11131) , and Garden Cottage (ref UK11129) which is 500 yards away, to accommodate up to 24 guests.

    "Lovely location sitting up on a hill from nearby Inverbervie. The view from the end of the driveway down to the coast is wonderful. The cottage is well equipped with cooking utensils, washing machine, dishwasher (with tablets in cupboard), microwave and cooker etc. There was milk in the fridge, some tea/coffee for an arrival cuppa and a packet of shortbread. The three bedrooms were comfortable, the upstairs bathroom looked a bit tired but was perfectly functional. It was warm and cosy. Converted from the former school there is plenty of character with high ceilings and large multi-pane windows. Very peaceful location. The Grassic Gibbon centre is next door. The historic St Ternan's church is a short walk away (the final resting place of several of my ancestors) with the memorial to Lewis Grassic Gibbon. The surrounding countryside is beautiful, there are many fabulous beaches to explore and plenty interesting and historical places to visit."
