The Arbuthnott Family have lived here in "The Howe of the Mearns" since 1190 so there is a bit of history, myth and legend to be told and we would be happy to share this with you. The self-catering holiday cottages have been part of our family business since 1996, starting with the conversion of the old 1900 village school, into three separate 3-bedroom houses. The detached "Garden Cottage" was probably built around the late 1600's.
Arbuthnott House is in the centre of the estate and is open 10 days a year and by prior appointment.
For open days in 2020 please see foot of page
