"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.

Once the gate lodge to Balnaboth House, this single-storey cottage has its own front garden. Open-plan sitting/dining room with open fire. Kitchen area with hob and microwave oven/grill only. Double bedroom with extra single bed (for alternative sleeping only) and en-suite shower room with toilet.

    The location of this cottage is good but we got the impression that it had been neglected. The mattresses were terribly uncomfortable

    It is at the start of a private road which just has a few cars from the main house and cottages and some passing farm traffic so being close to the road is not a problem. It is nice and quiet and in a scenic location with some good walks nearby. Cottage is rustic but comfortable and clean and the open fire, which we did need in June, gave it a homely touch. It is adapted for a wheel chair user with the kitchen worktop lower than normal and the shower room of ample size. It is better in the flesh than the pictures on the website. On the cons side, the shower could be a bit more powerful and there could be a few more plates etc without chips. Overall a good place to get away from it all, no wifi or TV just peace and quiet.
