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.

    An unbeatable location but the cottage really needs updating, especially the fridge/freezer & sofas. Was good to see the fence had been redone, almost entirely around the garden, but probably not secure for smaller dogs. Washing up the entire crockery & pan collection wasn't the greatest start to our holiday. Our second visit and we WILL be going again, but only due to location. It's a great base for visiting local (and not so local) areas with fabulous walks from the doorstep. Breakfasts outside with that view are something we may never beat. Not sure why the view and the table area outside (not a weight bench anymore) haven't been photographed!

    Stunning location, and a nice old fashioned cottage in nice surroundings. Lovely walks either on the doorstep / within a short drive. Compared to a lot of properties in the area, this was competitively priced.

    What an amazing little cottage in a breathtaking area. The views have got to be some of the best in Scotland such a wonderful place for a peaceful holiday. If i could have given a higher score for location i would have done.

    A fabulous cottage especially if you want quiet isolation and plenty of wildlife. There is little or no phone signal which for us was fantastic but may not be for everyone.

    We had a great time, situation of cottage fantastic lovely views, lots of gentle walks. Cooking (which we very much enjoy) could be have been made a little easier if a sieve, measuring jug, larger frying pan, some more baking/roasting tins plus if the right number of plates and glasses had been in evidence (fantastic view down the glen while washing up which I seemed to do quite a lot of time doing).
