Description

Positioned next to the river, this is the perfect property for those who enjoy fishing.

"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.

This charming conversion of the old laundry features pine-panelled ceilings in its cosy and characterful interior and a large balcony overlooking the Logie Burn which flows past the cottage. Open-plan sitting/dining room with multi-fuel stove and kitchen area. First floor: Double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and toilet.

    It’s a cottage full of character. We really enjoyed our stay. However shower was either too cold or too hot. It’s a good place to stay if you want to explore Glen Angus. However it’s far to a lot of places in Cairngorms. The nearest supermarket is 10 miles away and Aldi is 15 miles away.

    Extreme isolation the whole down stairs needs refurbishing, very old fashioned, has potential but requires a make over and a bigger couch ( just fits 2) .. extra payment for electric ( EVERYTHING is powered by electric within the house) wasn’t told this till we booked, extra payment for coal wasn’t told till we arrived. Was told a mobile signal was just outside the main gates .. NO was a 2 1/2 mile drive before received a signal bar! The only positive was the upstairs had been refurbished with quaint windows over looking the stream & good size room, personally would not recommend a stay here.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner: The electric heating and charge (also the fuel charge) are top of the list on the website information. We also provide a complimentary bag of logs for all guests. I think you may have confused "the main gates" with the "estate boundary" for the phone signal, but am at a loss to know where you heard this. The Old Laundry sleeps 2 guests – a 2 seater couch and an armchair are sited in the open-plan sitting / dining room and are clearly shown within the photographs on the website. I'm really sorry you did not enjoy your holiday, but as you will have seen when you searched back in the visitor’s book to leave your comments, it is the peace and quiet that most guests come for.

    Great location if you enjoy peace and quiet. Loved the cottage and the location was ideal. Great week there no phone signal or internet just what we needed. Most relaxing holiday I have had. The cottage had everything needed and was so cosy in front of the wood burner.

    Great location to get away from everything as long as you are prepared and take your provisions in with you. It was a joy to have no television, no phones so if these things are important to you don't go.

    The location of the Old Laundry cottage is idyllic. No good if you can't be without television, internet or telephone but if scenery and peace and quiet are what you are after then this is it. The cottage is comfortable without being luxurious. No shower except for a hand shower on the bath which is difficult to control temperature. Bed is very comfy. Cost of electricity fo a week is peanuts and one bag of logs for the solid fuel stove is supplied free. Good range of equipment in the kitchen. Cookere and fridge are a bit dated but work perfectly. The grounds of the estate are brilliant and you could spend a week just walking round there. Fishing is OK on the main Prosen Water I caught a small trout with my first cast but unfortunately the rain was pretty consistent during our week making it difficult to fish dry fly. There are plenty of places to visit fairly close to the estate (some nice distillery tours). Shopping is no problem, Forfar is only about 30 minutes away and has Asda, Tesco, Aldi and Lidl and some very good local shops.

    This was our second time and again it was a fabulous holiday. The cottage is quite basic but very cozy. The area is beautiful and the surrounding tranquil!
