Although in a rural location, Dean Cottage is 3 miles from the A 90 dual carriageway providing easy access to local amenities, supermarkets & major cities including Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow & the Highlands. Dean Cottage is therefore ideal for those wanting to explore Dundee, Angus, Fife or further afield, sporting activities, business travelers, visiting friends/family or those just wanting to relax.
