Easthill of Craigo is situated in an attractive rural setting, just to the south of the River North Esk, which is the county boundary between Angus and Kincardineshire. It is very conveniently located with the nearby A90 dual carriageway providing easy access to both Aberdeen and Dundee.

The nearby village of Hillside provides a local shop. There is a primary school in Rosemount.
More extensive shopping, together with banks, secondary schooling and a swimming pool and leisure centre are found in Montrose, which also has a railway station with regular services to Aberdeen and to the south, including a sleeper. In addition there is a railway station at Laurencekirk which also has a range of shopping and further secondary education at the Mearns Academy. Private schooling is available locally at Lathallan. Aberdeen Airport has a range of domestic and European flights and there are services from Dundee to London Stansted and Amsterdam.

There are popular beaches at Lunan Bay and St Cyrus. Away from the coast lie the Angus Glens. Fishing can be taken on the Rivers North and South Esks whilst local golf courses include Montrose, Brechin and Edzell.


Easthill of Craigo is an attractive farmhouse, situated in a convenient yet rural setting and enjoys views over open countryside and north to the hills. It was a farmhouse on the local estate with a traditional U shaped steading. The farm house was extended in the 1990s and in May 1995 won the Montrose Society Civic Award for the restoration and renovation of a dwelling house. Part of the steading was pulled down and the stonework was used in the extension for the house. The house was acquired by the current owners later that year. They converted the remaining part of the steading and this was used as a well known cattery from 2003 to 2015. This building now has considerable potential for other uses, subject to obtaining any necessary consents. They also set about doing further improvements in the house. The bathroom was refurbished in 2008 and the upstairs shower room in 2009. That same year the roof was reinsulated and the double glazed windows and doors in the original part of the house were renewed in 2011. In 2014 a new paved terrace was laid, linking the house to the garden. The front part of the original house now comprises four well proportioned bedrooms. The extension incorporates a large sitting room, which is designed to make the most of its position and views. This links through to the dining room to create a stunning living and entertaining area. There is also an office next door to a shower room, so this could easily be used as an additional downstairs bedroom. The kitchen links the new part of the house to the old. As such the house is well laid out for family living and the barn offers considerate scope, either as a business or an annexe, subject to planning. The house is fully double glazed.

A partially glazed front door with glazed side panels opens to an entrance vestibule. Accessed from this is the dining room which has an open style beamed ceiling, wooden floor, stone walling with a semi-circular bay which is a feature of the room. Steps lead down to the hexagonal shaped sitting room with a timber lined and open ceiling, stone walling with circular window and a raised open fireplace, display alcoves, spotlights and downlighters. Picture windows with window blinds are designed to make the most of the views and sliding doors open to the raised terrace. A lobby off the dining room has a cupboard housing a hot water tank. Off this is the office/bedroom 1 with open beamed ceiling and wooden floor. The tiled shower room has a shower cubicle, pedestal washbasin, WC and wooden floor.

A further door from the entrance vestibule leads to the fully fitted kitchen. This has wooden wall and floor units, a blue Stanley cooker, Whirlpool American style fridge & freezer with ice maker and water dispenser, sink, plumbing for dishwasher and good views north to the hills. From here a door leads to the original hallway with front double glazed doors to the garden, coat cupboard with louvered doors which houses a washing machine and dryer, wooden floor and stairs to the first floor. Off the hallway is the bathroom and two downstairs bedrooms. The partially tiled bathroom has a Jacuzzi bath, Jacuzzi walk in shower cubicle with body jets, pedestal washbasin, WC and heated towel rail. Bedrooms 2 and 3 were formerly reception rooms and have display shelves, under window shelves and wooden floors. Bedroom 3 also has an open fireplace with wooden mantel and tiled surround.

The staircase leads to the first floor landing which has a Velux roof light and spotlight. Bedrooms 4 and 5 both have fitted wardrobes, fitted shelves and drawers, whilst bedroom 5 also has a door to floored attic roof storage. The partially tiled shower room has a shower, pedestal washbasin, WC and Velux roof light.

The barn is stone built with a slate roof and is situated adjacent to the side of the house. Double doors open to the attached conservatory which links into the barn itself. The large downstairs room has wooden strapping for inner partition walling, sink, Hotpoint Aquarius washing machine and a Worcester Danesmor 15/19 oil fired boiler. Wooden stairs lead to the first floor where there is a bathroom with bath, washbasin and WC, and a utility room and another large room with Velux roof lights and a balcony.

The garden surrounds the house and is enclosed by hedging and fencing. The rear garden is mainly lawn with a pond, raised decking linking to the sitting room, which is a lovely entertaining spot, and a seat which makes the most of the views to the hills. There are flower and shrub borders, and a gravelled garden with shrubs and trees. There is an aluminium greenhouse and two wooden garden sheds. Adjacent is a further garden shed with raised vegetable borders. The garden to the front of the property is also mainly lawn with a brick paved area next to the house, and a well.
