Scottish Country Cottages

From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


This detached cottage offers stunning views over the glen, and some seclusion for a peaceful break.

"Acres of peaceful and secluded countryside surround these magnificent cottages..."

At the heart of Glenprosen, one of the renowned ‘Glens of Angus’, lies the Balnaboth Estate on the edge of the Cairngorms National Park; 6,000 peaceful and secluded acres surrounding 16th-century Balnaboth House. In its midst, these six characterful holiday cottages each offer a unique and magical holiday retreat; indeed the creator of Peter Pan himself (Sir James Barrie) was born in nearby Kirriemuir and holidayed here.
These cottages were once occupied by shepherds, gardeners or other staff of the Ogilvy family when this was a traditional Victorian sporting estate. Red squirrels play in the trees, otters frequent the burns, and deer graze all around. Because of the varied scenery, that varies from beech woods to forest, pasture to heather moor, mountain streams to river pools, the area enjoys a spectacular range of wildlife, including species largely extinct elsewhere in Britain, such as black game and ptarmigan.
Magnificent walking, bird-watching, mountain biking and (in season) cross-country skiing abound on the estate and, further afield, downhill skiing at Glen Shee (25 miles). Fishing is available on a 5-mile stretch of the River Prosen, and there are twenty golf courses within an hours’ drive.
Enjoy the seclusion of this beautiful glen - peaceful, relaxing, scenic - yet just a few minutes’ drive from bustling market towns and busy fishing harbours which hug the Angus coastline, as well as from the city of Dundee which offers many attractions for all the family. The exciting Dundee Contemporary Arts is a stunningly-designed centre which incorporates galleries, a print studio and two art-cinema screens, while the Mills Observatory is Britain’s only full-time public observatory with a resident astronomer.
Good road, rail and air access to Angus provide easy access from all parts of the UK or international destinations. Shop 9-10 miles.

With stunning views down the glen, this very comfortable, detached cottage is in complete isolation from other cottages and wonderful for a real ‘get away from it all’ holiday. Living room with wood-burning stove. Large kitchen with dining area. Sun porch. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. Narrow stairs to first floor: Two bedrooms, each with low pine coombed ceilings: one double and one twin.

    Absolutely a great place to stay. I would stay again because of the location. I did find the restricted height in bedrooms a problem as I am not keen to be so enclosed. But fabulous location.

    It was very remote and very basic. Sometimes grubby I.e furnishings, fridge freezer needed changing, was not efficient. Kettle needs replacing. Needs to be upgraded, i.e. Paintwork, Windows had black mould all around them. Pay phone very expensive.
