Set on a Highland estate spanning 4500 acres with hills rising to 2500ft, these four holiday properties are situated on the edge of the Cairngorms National Park with a wild flower reserve nearby, and an abundance of wildlife including ospreys and huge herds of deer. For 300 years Cistercian Monks spent half of each year at this peaceful place, making butter and cheese and brewing beer from the pure springs that continue to feed the houses. Delightful 18th-century Clover Cottage is reached from its parking area via a short track across a stream. With its own large garden with views towards the great massif of the Grampians. Claypotts is a charming 18th-century cottage, is in an utterly peaceful glen at the heart of the estate with its own enclosed garden on the banks of the River Isla.

Brewlands Cottage is a 17th-century, cosy, very comfortable property in a lovely riverside location with fishing from the garden and views of high hills and surrounding quiet countryside. There are ancient wild flower meadows with rare wild yellow violets and orchids. Red squirrels live around the gardens and the walls support rare ferns and lichens which grow only in unpolluted places. Walking from the door of each cottage. Excellent golf courses at St Andrews, Carnoustie, Gleneagles and Rosemount. Glenshee ski resort is 35 minutes, as is Pitlochry with its theatre, restaurants and kilt and cashmere shops.

    Claypots was peaceful and had some lovely surroundings, although the pictures do a good job to disguise the ugly outbuildings and to be honest the river is pretty inaccessible from the property. The cottage was tastefully decorated and had a cosy livingroom. The bedrooms and bathrooms were also nice, and the kitchen dinning area was light and spacious. However, the general feeling was that a few things could benefit from an update. Specifically, the dinning table was very shaky and many a cuppa was nearly spilt. The kitchen was a little run down and definitely in need of updating. What did come as a shock was the fact electricity was extra, payable in cash at the end of the week,as was any extra logs used for the burner. We laughed as we spotted a book and calculator to work out our usage? Which was over £100 as the heating and water was on a timer. I really think this needed to be better highlighted when booking and it's the first time I've ever seen this. The hot tub was for two only and when trying to top up the water we found a hose but no way to connect it meaning a few trips with a basin. All in all we had a peaceful week away.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you so much for your comments. We always welcome feedback as it helps us to improve our service to you. Most of our clients regard the eighteenth century stone cottage next door, now used as a cycle store for Claypotts, as charming. The other ancient stone structure, the water house, covers the site of a medieval well. The garden has a secure picket fence to prevent toddlers wandering onto the river bank, which our clients tend to believe is sensible. There is a path directly onto the river bank immediately outside the garden, as you know. We are not sure why you felt unable to take this path as many of our client’s fish for trout from the river in front of the cycle store. The river bank is 3 metres from the car parking area. A two minute walk south from the cottage takes you to that part of the bank where Queen Victoria liked to picnic and where our Highland ponies still like to sun themselves. The kitchen table has been tightened up. Sorry about that but we could have done it for you had you only asked us! The Agency website is absolutely clear about both the hot tub and the fuel. The timers are there for you to adjust the heating and hot water to whatever level you require. £100 is extraordinarily high for this cottage given that it is fully double glazed and insulated to Scandinavian standards, which are higher than those in the UK. We are surprised that this is the first time you have encountered timers for heating and hot water. You must have been very cosy indeed! The hose connects into the tap on the back wall of the cottage 6 metres from the hot tub. Again, if you had asked we could have helped you with any of your queries: We want you to have a happy time and we are there to help.

    We had a lovely relaxing time at Claypotts - Glenisla is beautiful. The only thing I wasn't keen on and have not experienced before, was the extra charge for electricity usage - you have to read the meter upon departure and leave what you owe. Whilst it wasn't much money and not really a problem, I would have preferred to pay an extra amount on the weekly rent and have it covered. Also, heated towel rail in the downstairs ensuite didn't seem to come on, so we had damp towels most days. Would be useful if they could supply a few extra 'beach type' towels for use with the hot tub - we have had that when we have stayed elsewhere. Overall, however, we had a lovely time and would recommend.

    Response on behalf of the owner: Thank you for your helpful comments. Because the temperature can be cold sometimes in winter, we find our summer guests prefer that the winter guests pay for their own usage and that therefore paying for what each guest consumes is the fairest way, they feel. The heated towel rail comes on with the heating, or when the heating is not used, switches separately. If you had mentioned this, we would have shown you how it works when the heating is off. Please do tell us! We are glad you had a lovely time.
