Ethiebeaton is situated on the east coast of Scotland, between the small seaside towns of Broughty Ferry and Carnoustie, in an area renowned for the quality of its arable farms.
The county of Angus boasts diverse scenery from sandy beaches below red sandstone cliffs at Lunan Bay to the rolling heather hills of Glen Prosen, Clova, Lethnot and Esk. The area is particularly well known for its production of soft fruit, vegetables, potatoes and bulbs, as well as being home to the iconic Aberdeen Angus breed of cattle. Many of Scotland's most recent agricultural pioneers originate from the coastal "Golden Mile", inspired and enabled by the underlying quality of the farms in the region.
Dundee, The City of Discovery (so called as home to Captains Cook's legendary ship) built its fortune on the industries of jute, jam and journalism. Today the city which has two universities and one of the largest teaching hospital in Europe, is going through a period of revival with a waterfront development including the V&A museum.
Recreational activities are diverse and include fishing on the rivers North and South Esk, traditional field sports in the Angus Glens and shooting on local estates.
There are a number of fine local links courses including Arbroath, Panmure and Monifieth with Carnoustie, which hosted The British Open Golf Championship in 2007 and 2018, only 7 miles away. Broughty Ferry and Monifieth are well served by shops, business facilities, leisure centres and both primary and secondary schools. Private schooling is available at Dundee High School (6 miles).
There are mainline railway stations at Montrose and Dundee, with regular services to Aberdeen and to the south, including a sleeper. Aberdeen Airport (68 miles) has a range of domestic and European flights. Edinburgh Airport (65 miles) is also within easy reach, and there are daily direct services from Dundee Airport (8 miles) to London Stansted.
Angus is well served by agricultural merchants and dealers and there is a successful local machinery ring which can provide additional resources as and when required. Grain and potatoes are shipped directly from Dundee and Montrose and there is a livestock mart at Forfar (14 miles).
Extending to about 466 acres in total, Ethiebeaton is an extensive and diversified arable farm centred around a comfortable family farmhouse with a good range of modern potato storage and general purpose buildings. The farm also benefits from three 11kW wind turbines and a biomass system which heats the farmhouse and farm buildings and generates a useful additional income stream.
