About the Owner
About David & Emily MacSporran
We have lived in Edzell for the last 15 years. I recently retired from the Builders Merchanting Industry and now spend my time golfing, walking, gardening, diy and being a member of the Community Council.
Emily is a retired accountant and she also enjoys the country pursuits.
We both take an active interest in the village and the surrounding countryside and glens.
David & Emily MacSporran purchased this apartment in 2013
Why David & Emily MacSporran chose Angus & Dundee
It is not often that properties come on the market for sale in Edzell. When Edgemuir, 97 High Street and the apartment above it did come onto the market at the same time we thought this was a great opportunity to invest in one of the original houses that was build around 1860.
Edgemuir was in dire need of repair and we took time and care renovating it to a high standard. The property now offers very comfortable and freindly accommodation and has been awarded Scottish Tourist Board 4 star rating.

Great property and great base to explore
The flat was very comfortable and clean. It had absolutely everything we needed, even for our 2 year old who loved the Peppa Pig crockery! Emily and David's messages were very friendly and informative. Edzell was beautiful as it was autumn and our little one loved the nearby park. Very friendly locals too. We enjoyed our stay in Edzell and would recommend the flat highly.
Very conducive to relaxing
Just a short stay but we were met by Emily who showed us around her very nice apartment. Very new looking, clean and comfortable. Local area has interesting locations such as the Castle, the LindsayVault and walks along the Esk. Hovever, this last was overgrown and parts of the path on the Aberdeenshire side are seriously eroded making it difficult walking.
Everything about Edzell appeals. The people are friendly and open. There also is a very good butcher.
We hope to return in the future, family permitting.
Our thanks to David and Emily.
