The Boat House is situated in a quiet countryside position some 4½ miles to the south of the village of Newtyle and approximately 9 miles to the north-east of Dundee. Newtyle provides a primary school, village shop with Post Office, butcher, Church and bowling club. Dundee, known as the City of Discovery, offers extensive city amenities including shopping centres, supermarkets, cinema, theatre, Olympia swimming pool, two universities, together with both railway and bus stations and an airport with regular links to London Stansted.
Angus is a county offering many outdoor activities. For the golfer, there are a number of courses within a convenient distance of the Boat House including Piperdam, Rosemount at Blairgowrie, two courses in Alyth and the championship course at Carnoustie, which lies approximately 23 miles to the east. The ski slopes of Glenshee lie are situated about 34 miles to the north whilst the Angus Glens provide wonderful hill walking routes. Both fishing and shooting are all available in the area.
The Boat House is a former outbuilding, lying above the Round Loch of Thriepley and within approximately 8.49 acres (3.44 ha). It is of principally stone construction under a corrugated roof.
Planning permission has been granted by Angus Council in June 2013 for the conversion of the outbuilding into a dwelling house. The reference number is 13/00585/FULL. Further details available from the selling agents.
The grounds are principally down to permanent pasture, bounded by a number of mature deciduous trees, and give the opportunity to keep horses or indeed live the good life.
From Dundee, take the A923 road to Coupar Angus and on entering Muirhead turn right onto the B954 road signposted for Alyth. After approximately 3 miles turn left onto the minor road opposite the small bus shelter and the entrance to Sunnyhall Cottage lies immediately after the round loch on the right-hand side. After turning onto the track, take the first track to the right-hand side and the Boat House lies on the right-hand side.
