Set in generous grounds extending to approximately 2.74 acres in total, and benefitting from high levels of privacy and seclusion, Roseking Hall is centrally located within the county of Angus and enjoys easy access into the local county market town of Forfar which offers a good range of local facilities. Arbroath, Broughty Ferry and Carnoustie are also all within comfortable driving distance with the vibrant city of Dundee - already home to Scott’s ship RSS Discovery and with the new V & A museum due to open in 2018 - less than a twenty minute drive to the south-west. Aberdeen is about a one hour drive to the north via the A90 dual carriageway which runs past at Inverarity, just a five minute drive from the property. Roseking Hall is located in an area of particularly glorious and varied countryside with hill, wood, river, farmland and coastline all nearby. The result is home to an array of wildlife and also presents a fine choice for the outdoor enthusiast with walking, cycling and riding all readily available. Golfers in particular are especially well catered for with an unrivalled selection of highly rated courses close at hand including the Championship Course at Carnoustie (host to The Open Championship in 2018) and The Old Course at St. Andrews. Highly regarded courses at Edzell, Montrose, Arbroath, Forfar and Alyth are also close at hand. Challenging shooting and fishing may be taken locally whilst the pretty Angus glens such as Isla, Prosen, Clova and Lethnot are temptingly close. For skiers Glenshee is just over an hour to the north. In terms of days out the stunning sandy beaches at Lunan Bay and St. Cyrus and the red sandstone cliffs at Arbroath are well within reach. There are also a number of interesting National Trust properties in the area including the House of Dun at Montrose and the J.M. Barrie house, once home to the creator of Peter Pan, in Kirriemuir. Glamis Castle and Estate are only a short distance away. State schooling is available locally with private schooling being provided at the High School of Dundee as well as Robert Gordons in Aberdeen and St. Leonards in St. Andrews.
