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 Edzell

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.

Excellent *****

  • 5 of 5

The property exceeded our expectations. High quality of decor, fittings etc and kitchen was very well equipped. Absolutely spotless property inside. Ideal for getaway

( although we were in the area on business)

We stayed in January and enjoyed it, but can imagine this is a fantastic location in the summer.

An absolute gem.

  • 5 of 5

A superb wee apartment in a fantastic location opposite the iconic PANMURE arms hotel and right next to a lovely park area. Fully equipped to the highest standard and scrupulously clean. Massive and very comfortable bed and great shower. Friendly and helpful hosts Emily and David have spared no effort in making this one of the best self catering we have stayed in (over 40 yrs). Can’t recommend it highly enough and we will definitely be returning.

Great house, great place.

  • 5 of 5

Welcomed by Emily and as it was our second stay in this house, we did not need much help although Emily took care to ensure we knew everything necessary. Very well equipped property, clean, bright and comfortable.

Brechin is only a short drive away but Edzell has everything necessary for a holiday. Spar shop,

Post office and general store, a pop-up florist, two hotels, golf club and a public park beside the church with children’s play area and exercise stations. The castle is an interesting place to visit with a small shop where all the information you could wish for about the history of the place is available.

Our stay was too short but we will come back again when the opportunity arises.

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The flat was clean, well decorated and comfortable, with everything we needed for our stay. Edzell is a lovely village in an excellent location for access to the coast, the mountains, Dundee and Aberdeen.

Immaculate, cosy, well equipped, tastefully decorated, very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is a well positioned, comfortable, cosy flat - ideal for a couple. On the Main Street of Edzell, it has very handy street parking right outside the door. The kitchen is very well equipped and the bathroom has plenty of hooks and shelves for everyone’s bits and bobs. There is a great supply of towels and lots of hooks for hanging coats and jackets and mats for dumping muddy boots. Very comfortable bed in main bedroom with ample

space for storing clothes. Good lighting and tastefully decorated.

Lots of great walking in the area - everything from a stroll by the river to a major trek up a glen. Various shops and coffee shops on the High Street, including a chemist and a post office (which seems to sell everything!). We loved Edzell and the surrounding area and will definitely visit again.

With a dual carriageway only a few minutes drive away, you can also be in Dundee within 45 minutes.

Many thanks once again to Emily and David Macsporran for a very successful visit!

Lovely house

  • 5 of 5

We were up in Edzell for a wedding and picked this property initially for its location near the church and opposite the reception venue. The property was just perfect for our requirements and was very clean and tidy, if perhaps slightly compact !! Not much space to move around in the bedrooms when it came to getting ready for the wedding (but maybe we're just lucky back home). We sometimes have family get together in Edzell and this property will certainly be on the shortlist for possible accommodation. Really liked it!!
