West Steading is an outstanding modern country property offering superb, deceptively spacious high quality family accommodation in a lovely quiet setting outside the village of Wellbank. With only a handful of near neighbours, the property is just a short distance to the north of Broughty Ferry (4 miles) and Dundee (6 miles). Shortly to be the home of the new V & A museum, which is due to open in the autumn of 2018, the resurgent city of Dundee offers an excellent range of shops, services and amenities with Broughty Ferry, Monifieth and Carnoustie also offering a good range of options. Aberdeen is just over an hour to the north with Edinburgh a similar distance to the south. Home to an array of wildlife, the area provides easy access to some particularly outstanding and varied countryside with hill, wood, river, farmland and coastline all quite close by. The result is a fine choice for the outdoor enthusiast with walking, cycling and riding all readily available. Golfers in particular are especially well provided for with an unrivalled selection of highly rated courses within easy striking distance including the championship course at Carnoustie which hosts the British Open in 2018 and the Old Course at St. Andrews. Forfar, Edzell, Alyth and Montrose are also on hand. Challenging shooting and fishing may be taken locally whilst the pretty Angus glens such as Isla, Prosen, Clova and Letham are temptingly accessible. 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 for Scotland 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. Good state schooling is available locally with private schooling being provided at the highly regarded High School of Dundee. There are railway stations in Montrose, Arbroath, Carnoustie and Dundee, with Aberdeen airport just over an hour to the north. Edinburgh airport is about an hour to the south whilst the busy regional airport at Dundee also offers a good range of short haul flights.
