Founded as a coaching inn in the early 19th century, this charming 3-star hotel is situated in the ancient city of Brechin and now offers high-standard accommodations. Second visit in a week. Really good service. Excellent welcome. Lovely food and room was perfect. Thanks
Set in Brechin, 27 mi from Dundee, Liscara Bed and Breakfast offers a shared lounge and free WiFi. We loved this cosy b&b! The bed was so comfortable and the room was spotless and beautifully decorated. Mike and June could not have been kinder or more welcoming! The breakfast was outstanding - generous portions of delicious home cooked food! A perfect spot from which to explore Angus and the surrounding area.
We were only there for an evening as we had traveled from Dunfermline in Fife and took in the sites locally before heading to bed and breakfast for 4pm. We visited the local golf course restaurant in Edzell which was a great find and beautiful food. We left at 10am the next morning to travel to Arbroath and surrounding areas.
We loved the area. It is pastoral and near the sea. Lots of castles and history. Just far enough from Aberdeen for a true country experience. Montrose is close and lovely! Getting around the area is very easy, and we would definately return again. Great for walking about or jogging too! The beach in Montrose is wonderful for children especially. and dogs are everywhere and well behaved if you have a pet!
Brechin is a small and quit place. Visited Cathedral which was impressive. Staff and punters in the two pubs I visited were friendly as were staff in hotel. I had a slow puncture while I was there and angus Tyres sorted in very quickly and cheaply. My main purpose was a football match. Ground is small, neat and tidy. Stewards and staff were very welcoming and helpful and evening was warm & still.
It was a very personal visit to my old home and school, but apart from that I must be honest and say that I feel Brechin does not have much to recommend apart as a springboard for exploring the glens and surrounding countryside
This is our second visit to Brechin, we think it's a little historical gem that is well worth a visit. It's reasonably priced and easily accessible off the A90 which is probably why it's a popular place for visitors to stay during the Carnoustie Open. You can walk around Brechin and probably see it all in a day. Having said that you could extend your stay with other local attractions. If you book in plenty of time you can also visit the local distillery (producing Glencadam whisky) - visits are by appointment only. It's in walking distance of the town centre so very handy not having to drive. We haven't managed to see the distillery yet cos it's always been an afterthought when we've booked. However the local hotels and pubs also serve this rather delicious aqua vitae - so I wholeheartedly would recommend trying the 17yr Glencadam. If you visit at the right time, the local Laird's house is also open to the public, which I am told is a real treat. Check with the local tourist information for when this is. In the surrounding area there are many historical sights from Pictish stones to Castles, so we used Brechin as our base for exploring. The Angus coast is also a short drive away, notable places to see such as Arbroath Abbey and beautiful beaches like Lunan Bay. When you're ready to move on then the Angus Glens are only a short drive away for a bit of hillwalking - we went to Glen Clova which has short, and medium walks as well as longer hikes such as the historical Jock's road, a 14 mile path to Braemar over the Cairngorms. In short Brechin is a lovely little stop over. It's referred to as a "Cathedral City," but remember, this is a sleep little town. It has a few rough edges, but it's a little gem.
I was a Brechin boy born and bread left 30 or so years ago . lots of local history short trips to sea side and at the foot of the glens . You must see the round tower and Cathedral witch gives Brechin its City status.
Gramarcy House enhanced our stay in the lovely town of Brechin. Agnes made us welcome and made us super breakfasts.
Second visit in a week. Really good service. Excellent welcome. Lovely food and room was perfect. Thanks
