Harley-Davidson: Scottish Historic Cottage with H-D Roots For Sale
An ancestral home of one of the four founding members of Harley-Davidson went up for sale- and she’s a beauty.
“Situated in the hamlet of Netherton near Aberlemno, Angus, Davidson Cottage was the first home of William C. Davidson, who went on to found Harley-Davidson after emigrating to the United States in the 19th century,” comments the report from The Scotsman.
The ‘authentic piece of history’ wasn’t always this good-looking – we’re told that 20 years ago, this home was ‘a crumbling ruin.’
Brought back from a dubious future in 2008, the reparations were purported to be completed by a group of Harley fans – and it’s stayed close to the community ever since.
“Maggie Sheritt, Mike Sinclair, and Keith Macintosh, officially opened Davidson’s Cottage in 2012 and a festival to mark Harley-Davidson’s Scots heritage is held in nearby Brechin which hundreds of bikers attend.”
“A truly unique proposition, Davidson Cottage has already gathered quite some following from Harley-Davidson aficionados around the world, as a place of pilgrimage and an intriguing holiday destination,” says Ruaraidh Ogilvie, Residential Director for Savills (Brechin).
