Owned and operated by our client since 2007, but operated since 2009, this most impressive contemporary boutique B&B sits discreetly on Cliffburn Road East, only a short walk from the centre of Arbroath.

The seaside town of Arbroath which has a population of around 24,000 lies 16 miles north of the City of Dundee and around 43 miles south of the City of Aberdeen on Scotland's east coast. The town is surrounded by breathtaking scenery, golf courses, historic sites such as Arbroath Abbey and offers good local amenities plus a varied mixture of shops, schools and leisure facilities. The Abbey which was founded in 1178 has an intriguing account involving the whereabouts of the Stone of Destiny which put Arbroath and its Abbey on the map in 1951. The famous Stone of Destiny, on which all of Scotland's Kings were crowned at Scoune Palace; Perthshire was stolen in 1950 from
Westminster Abbey and returned to Scotland. After a Nationwide search the Stone was traced to Arbroath Abbey and amidst a blaze of publicity was returned to Westminster Abbey in 1951.

Originally built as a fine private residence in 1927 then latterly converting to a bed & breakfast, Brucefield House oozes style and sophistication.

the charming breakfast room and sumptuous guest bedrooms: style & quality runs throughout this stunning property. With the lovely mature garden, guests of Brucefield in the summer months regularly enjoy a glass of wine in the garden or challenge friends to a game of croquet on the south facing front lawn.

While the property offered terrific potential as a high quality B&B operation, on taking over the house, part of our client's business plan was the rebranding and developing a whole new image for the business.
