Lark Cottage provides the perfect location to explore the hidden gems of Scotland's east coast. Nestled in the peaceful rolling Sidlaw Hills on the Angus border near the tiny hamlet of Lundie, yet only a 20 minute drive from Dundee or 30 minutes to Perth, you really are close to everything you need.
Lundie is a parish and small settlement in Angus, 10 miles (16 km) northwest of Dundee, situated at the head of the Dighty valley in the Sidlaws off the A923 Dundee to Coupar Angus road. The name Lundie probably derives from the Gaelic "lunnd" or "lunndann", meaning "little marsh", although "lon dubh" ("black marsh" or even "linn dei" ("water of God") have also been proposed. During the reign of King David II (1329-1371) John Iles was created the Baron of Lundie which has passed through many incumbents.
Lundie is notable for being the burial place of Adam Duncan, 1st Viscount Duncan. The churchyard of Lundie church contains an Abraham and Isaac stone. Although the church is an ancient foundation, it was drastically restored in 1847. Nearby Lundie Crags (353 m, OS reference NO 282 378) are a popular walking destination.
