Our Aims

Davidson Legacy Cottage is a small cottage set in the heart of Angus Scotland, known previously as Netherton Cottage, near Aberlemno Pictish stones, has a story of its own to tell. The story of the Davidson family from the famous motorcycle company ‘Harley-Davidson’. The cottage was found in a derelict state and rescued in 2008, by Mike Sinclair, Maggie Sherrit and Keith Mackintosh. Having restored the cottage to as it would have been in 1857 when the Davidson family left they spent many years welcoming thousands of visitors from around the world to see the historic family home they are now wishing to retire.

“The cottage was put up for sale in 2021 as the current owners wish to retire but sadly the only offers they have had, have been from developers wishing to knock it down and build new houses on the scenic site,” revealed Nyree Aitken – DLC Project coordinator. “We have come together as community of bikers and non-bikers, to save this significant part of history. There is a real risk the cottage will be lost if we don’t take action. As a charity we hope to purchase, preserve and enhance what the cottage has to offer the community. We want to take the cottage to the next level as a resource for learning and opportunities.”

We can’t achieve this on our own and need your help. The funds needed to raise is the initial £320,000 to purchase the cottage.
