Our home

A Victorian detached house in a small popular seaside town: minutes from an award winning beach as well as a restored Scottish castle and large children's play park with putting and bowling. The house is within 5 minutes walk from the lovely town of Broughty Ferry with many cafe's, restaurants and independent boutique shops. Our home is spacious and warm with 3 double bedrooms, a breakfasting kitchen, dining room and beautiful living room with original fireplace and traditional cornicing. The house also boasts a private, walled garden. We have all mod cons: dish washer; fridge freezer; gas central heating; clothes drier and wi-fi. The location is perfect for exploring Scotland's cities within easy reach of Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Inverness as well as access to Scotland's beautiful beaches and Highland mountains and lochs.

Who we are

  1. I'm Marta and will be travelling with my partner David and our two children aged 14 and 16. I work in renewable energy and David is a chef. Scotland has an abundance of wave, wind and tidal energy (perhaps I should not mention the rain for hydro generation…..). We love gardening, fishing and long country walks. My daughter loves to sing. We really enjoy swimming together in the sea and snorkelling. We have had two very successful house exchange so far. We believe our unique home will bring some family a wonderful experience of Scotland. I would be happy to include my mini clubman car (leather seats and sun roof) in the swap. We also have lots of camping equipment if anyone wishes to camp in the mountains and bikes and lots of fishing equipment are available in our shed. Having had a wonderful 2018 summer swap near Barcelona we would welcome invites for short breaks anywhere in Europe anytime and somewhere warm and near the sea / lake for summer- June to mid August in 2019 (for 2-3 weeks). We would also consider going further afield- particualrly the far east.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Just 4 miles to the east of Dundee city centre lies the famous seaside town of Broughty Ferry - known as "The Jewel in Dundee's Crown". Bustling with personality and charm, Broughty Ferry offers a perfect mix of history, hospitality, shopping and leisure to suit all the family.

Since Victorian times, Broughty Ferry has been one of Scotland’s most popular waterfront destinations, renowned for its fine seafront esplanade and award-winning golden sands. With a charming town centre full of colourful independent stores, boutiques and gift shops, and a great range of stylish eateries, Broughty Ferry is the perfect location for a lively day trip or long stay vacation.

Famed for its array of traditional taverns and stylish contemporary wine bars, and home to several of Dundee’s top ten restaurants, Broughty Ferry’s hospitality is second to none!

The town is within striking distance by car or train to all of Scotland's cities: Edinburgh (1 hour); Dundee (10 minutes); Glasgow (1 hour 10 mins); Aberdeen (1 hour 30 mins); Inverness (2 hours); Perth (30 mins). World famous golf courses St Andrews and Carnoustie are with 20 minutes away along with many award winning beautiful beaches and small traditional fishing villages and harbours. If fishing is your passion you have easy access to the famous salmon rich river Tay and sea fishing just minutes from our door. We have a range of fishing rods for you to use. The Scottish Trossachs and Highlands are an easy drive away. As a base for exploring our beautiful historically and culturally rich country, Broughty Ferry is hard to beat.

Our house itself is minutes from the castle, beach, large play park, bowling and putting and an easy stroll to the small town itself. Regular trains will take you to the city of Dundee in just 7 minutes.
