Dundee & Angus region to host first five-star resort

Revised plans have been tabled by the Forbes of Kingennie Country resort for a £100m golf resort, hotel and spa near Broughty Ferry, Angus.

The Angus is heralded as the first five-star resort for the Dundee region and will deliver 175 bedrooms, a rooftop sky bar and 1,900sq/m leisure facility.

Set within 300 acres at Shank of Omachie the 3DReid designed resort will anchor a golf course designed by Darren Clarke complete with a clubhouse and golf academy together with 160 houses and 10-holiday lodges with expansive views across the Tay Estuary.

Forbes of Kingennie owner Mike Forbes commented: “This is a huge project and a labour of love for me, my family and our planning team who have worked tirelessly to ensure we have a resort that the people of Angus can be proud of for generations to come.

“We are committed to working collaboratively with the planning team at Angus Council to meet all the planning requirements to allow us to begin construction on this transformational development in 2022 so that it can be delivered by Morrison Construction.”

The project team includes Ryden, Balgair, Manson Architects, Team Niblick (golf course design) and project managers CPC with completion expected in 2024.

3DReid is also delivering a five-star hotel on Royal Deeside, Aberdeenshire.

Broughty Ferry is part of Dundee. It is closer to Monifieth which is in Angus.

"expansive", surely expensive views across the Tay Estuary
