69 Charleston is a lovely cottage situated off a quiet side street in the small village of Charleston. Charleston has a bowling club and is situated just over one mile from the well-known Angus village of Glamis, which has some local services, including a primary school and is famous for its castle. The county town of Forfar (6 miles) provides extensive shopping, secondary schooling at Forfar Academy, a leisure centre, a swimming pool and business facilities.
Angus is well known for its range of outdoor pursuits. Fishing can be taken on the North and South Esks. The Angus Glens provide some of the best hill-walking in eastern Scotland and there is skiing at Glenshee. Loch fishing is available locally at Rescobie. As well as the local golf courses at Forfar and Kirriemuir, the championship courses at Carnoustie and St. Andrews are within easy driving distance. There is a golf driving range on the northern edge of Forfar. Pleasant sandy beaches include those at Lunan Bay and at St. Cyrus which is a Nature Reserve. Locally there are fine walks up Balmashanner Hill and around Forfar Loch.
The A90 provides fast access south to Dundee, Perth and central Scotland and north to Aberdeen. Dundee, Aberdeen and Perth provide all the services expected of major cities whilst Edinburgh is also within reasonable driving distance. There are east coast mainline railway stations at Arbroath and Dundee with a sleeper service. Both Aberdeen and Edinburgh airports provide a range of domestic and European flights and there are services from Dundee to London City airport.
