Lochty House is cosy self catering accommodation in Carnoustie, golf heaven for those who play the game but also a great base for people who enjoy walking, cycling, fishing, the coast, castle hopping and all that magnificent Scottish food and drink. It’s conveniently placed a few minutes’ walk from the town centre, while the North Sea coast is popular for sailing, surfing and other watersports.
The family friendly house sleeps up to six adults in three guest bedrooms, all of them individually decorated and well equipped. There’s a shared bathroom with bath and shower and, downstairs, a comfy living room, a dining area, well equipped kitchen and pleasant garden. The property has private parking on site and many amenities including Wi-Fi and TV with satellite channels.
“It’s a home from home,” says owner Irene Anderson. “We provide everything people need. They only need to bring themselves.”
Many people stay there because of the golf. Carnoustie is famous for its championship links course, ‘golf’s greatest challenge’, which has eight times held the Open Championship. The famous course of St Andrews is 45 minutes’ drive away and Gleneagles, which recently hosted the Solheim Cup, about an hour.
Nearby Glamis Castle, where the Queen Mother grew up, is one of the most splendid in Scotland and Carnoustie is on the railway line from Edinburgh to Aberdeen.
