Be­side the sea­side

WHILE beach houses are mainly mar­keted dur­ing the sum­mer months, the de­sire to live by the sea is not bounded by the sea­sons – if any­thing, a stroll on an empty stretch of sand in blus­tery Jan­uary can be just as ap­peal­ing, if not more, than a crowded beac

MID­WAY be­tween the towns of Ar­broath and Mon­trose in An­gus, Lu­nan Bay is one of Scot­land’s hid­den gems, a mag­nif­i­cent beach that his­tor­i­cally, was the fo­cus for com­mer­cial net sal­mon fish­ing.

A for­mer sal­mon bothy is priced as a whole, at of­fers over £435,000 – which in­cludes 170 acres of spec­tac­u­lar beach and dunes – or separately as two lots, with the house priced at of­fers over £385,000 and the land at of­fers over £50,000.

Red­cas­tle Sal­mon Bothy sits be­low the craggy 15th cen­tury ru­ins of Red Cas­tle. The ac­com­mo­da­tion spans al­most 3,000 sq ft – with the 26ft liv­ing room on the first floor for the views. Down­stairs are a sit­ting room/snug and din­ing room, kitchen with larder, util­ity room study/fourth bed­room and shower room. Up­stairs are three fur­ther dou­ble bed­rooms (on en-suite), cloak­room/ WC, bath­room and dress­ing room.

It also has en­ergy-pro­duc­ing pho­to­voltaic roof pan­els, and an in­te­gral quadru­ple garage. Stag­ger­ingly beau­ti­ful and unique, Red­cas­tle Sal­mon Bothy is be­ing mar­keted by CKD Gal­braith’s of­fice in Cu­par.

VIEWS IN­CLUDED: The up­stairs liv­ing area makes the most of the out­look.
