About The Piggery Bellevue

The Piggery Bellevue is a fresh, welcoming holiday home for couples and individuals looking for a location that's peaceful without being remote. It is a high-end purpose built detached building with a holiday apartment on the first floor in the quiet village of Leysmill, two miles from Friockheim and six miles from Arbroath and the coast.

Friockheim is ideal if you need to pop out for a pint of milk or you fancy a pub meal. Its small supermarket is well stocked with all of the essentials, and The Star Inn serves tasty meals. There's a second pub, The Railway Inn, which doesn't serve food but which has a good choice of whisky. For anything else, it's only a 10-minute drive to Arbroath where you will find an excellent variety of amenities in addition to a pretty working harbour, beautiful beaches and the lovely ruins of Arbroath Abbey, famed for being the place for the signing of the Scottish declaration of independence. Arbroath is famous for the quality of its "smokies" - line-caught haddock smoked over oak chips in the traditional way. You'll smell it as you walk around the harbour where there are a handful of families running the same smokehouses their ancestors did generations ago.

You can happily walk for miles around the cliffs of the Angus coastline, past beaches like Lunan Bay which stretches for two miles north from Ethie Haven to Boddin Point. The remains of the 12th Century castle still stand as a deterrent to any would-be Viking invaders. Take your binoculars for bird watching, or book through local stables to experience the exhilaration of horse riding on the sand. Days out can include driving an hour or so to the breathtaking Angus Glens, where there are miles of footpaths and cycling routes. Play a round of golf, charter a fishing boat or fish the rivers for trout and salmon, or marvel at the magnificence of Glamis Castle and gardens. Dundee is only 20-minutes away, with places to eat, drink and shop as well as specialist museums and galleries; and Ospreys at Balgavies Loch is even closer for wildlife enthusiasts (although there is a fair bit to spot from the garden of The Piggery including deer and red squirrels, as well as the owners free-range chickens (fresh eggs normally available!) and at times orphan lambs which guests are welcome to help feed.

The Piggery Bellevue is available for bookings all year round and just waiting for when you get a chance to escape to the beauty of Angus.
