Both Aberdeen and Dundee are within commuting distance and provide all the services expected of major centres including private schooling. Journey times to Aberdeen and its airport have been greatly reduced since the Western Peripheral Road opened. The nearby town of Brechin provides additional local shopping together with business services, with leisure facilities and secondary schooling at the new community campus. Further shopping is found in Montrose. Lathallan at Johnshaven and the High School of Dundee are well known local private schools, both having dedicated bus services from Brechin.

9 Dunlappie Road is a most well presented and spacious house, located at the southern end of Edzell, and close to the golf course, yet within easy walking distance of the High Street and all the amenities in the village. The house, which has always been in the sellers' family, dates from 1983. Originally it was built as a single storey house. It was fully refurbished and extended some ten years ago, including the addition of all the upstairs accommodation. At that stage the kitchen and the bathrooms and shower rooms were all fully refurbished, together with the installation of new double glazed windows, Kingspan loft insulation and solar panels on the roof. Some five years ago the double garage was built and the cottage, which was formerly part of the old Edzell railway station yard, was converted. Birch Cottage has been beautifully renovated to a high standard. It is currently used successfully for holiday lets. Given the amount of accommodation within the house there could be potential for a bed and breakfast enterprise. Alternatively Birch Cottage could be used as additional accommodation or the whole property has potential for multi generational living.
9 Dunlappie Road has a harled, stone and wood finish, with a slate roof. It looks out over its own garden which has a footgate on to The Drive. Birch Cottage, which is situated adjacent to the house, is stone built with timber finishings and a slate roof. Wrought iron gates open on to a gravelled parking area, adjacent to the house, cottage and garage. The accommodation in the main house is spacious and light, making the most of its position. At ground floor level is a hallway / living room, while off an inner hallway are good sized sitting and dining rooms, both looking out on to the garden, together with the well appointed kitchen and utility room and with two bedrooms (one currently used as an office) and a bathroom and shower room and an office which could be an additional bedroom. Upstairs is a spacious master bedroom with a balcony looking out on to the golf course, together with an adjoining bathroom. In addition there are two further bedrooms and another shower room. The principal accommodation, including the downstairs bedrooms have cornices, and the house is well laid out, both for modern family living and for entertaining, particularly with the enclosed garden. The accommodation at Birch Cottage is also arranged over two floors. At ground floor level is an appealing open plan living room / kitchen, looking out over its own enclosed courtyard, together with an en suite bedroom and a further shower room, with another bedroom upstairs.
