The Boreen enjoys a delightful, highly secluded setting in an extensive enclosed garden in a prime location in Dundee’s sought after West End. Just a short drive or walk from the centre of the thriving and now resurgent city, The Boreen is also well placed for the many independent shops and restaurants on Dundee’s Perth Road which offer a good alternative to the city centre itself. From The Boreen, there is easy access to a number of retail parks and out of town shopping centres and there is also rapid access via the main M90 motorway network to Perth, Edinburgh and Aberdeen. Stirling and Glasgow are also within comfortable driving distance.
The popular West End area of Dundee offers ready access to the surrounding villages and towns of Angus and North East Fife including St Andrews, Cupar and Carnoustie, as well as some particularly fine countryside. With a lovely mix of farmland, coastline, hill and river the result is a fine choice for the outdoor enthusiast with walking, cycling, riding, sailing and golf all readily available. There are excellent sandy beaches at St Andrews, Lunan Bay and St Cyrus as well as the sandy beach at Broughty Ferry. The Angus glens which include Glen Clova, Glen Isla and Glen Prosen are well within striking distance for day trips.
State primary and secondary schooling is available locally with independent schooling being provided at the High School of Dundee. There are railway stations in Dundee, Broughty Ferry, Monifieth and Carnoustie with Edinburgh airport about 1 hour to the south.
