Scottish Country Cottages

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


This half-round property is set amidst trees in the grounds of the Bainaboth Estate, offering a peaceful retreat.

"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.

Set amidst trees near the main house, this unique, half-round cottage has been converted from the original dairy. Open-plan sitting/dining room with multi-fuel stove and kitchen area. First floor: Wood-panelled double bedroom with 5ft bed, coombed ceiling and en-suite bathroom with toilet.

    This was our second visit to Tinkerbell and it hadn't lost any of its charm. Would advise anyone staying to to be sure to take everything they might need with them, it's a round trip of over 20 miles to get supplies. Usually at holiday rentals you can be sure of there being the basics, like toilet roll and washing up liquid and cloths. On this occasion there was nothing left at all, perhaps the previous occupants took everything with them when they left. Had a fantastic time, lots of beautiful walks during the day and cozy nights by the wood burner in the evening.

    The location was excellent. Very pretty, quiet and secluded as expected. Tinkerbell itself was lovely, lots of original features and very comfortable. The location is very close to some lovely countryside, walks of varying degrees of difficulty and closer to the coast than you may think. Downsides to the holiday were having to pay extra for electricity and towels - considering the price of the holiday wasn't insignificant. There could have been more equipment available in the kitchen and the knives really need a sharpen. A blunt knife is a very dangerous thing in a kitchen! No kindling was left for the fire either.... Overall, we feel that (and have been to other cottages that do this) there could have been more facilities included in the price of the cottage. Policy on the restrictions surrounding the stay of the dog were also not made totally clear in the write up of the property.

    loved the quaintness of cottage, dog loved the walks, do not have anything negative to say about it, read all literature about it before we went so new exactly what to expect when we arrived, no T.V reception. no mobile reception. no wifi, not a problem. Would definitely go back for a relaxing break.

    A unique and really charming cottage set in a lovely glen and a perfect location for walking and climbing. A very warm welcome and very knowledgeable information on all the local walks and sights. Highly recommended. Looking forward to the next visit to Glen Prosen,

    Our stay at the tinberbell cottage was a wonderfull experience, the cottage was really nice and very secluded and facilities were good also. The fact that there was no phone, no mobile phone signal, no TV and no internet was tremendous to ensure a relaxing four nights away. Also it was like a trip down memory lane having to kindle the wood burning stove. You have to pay for the electricity used

    If you want peace and quiet, beauty and remoteness, plus no TV, no internet, no phone and no mobile signals (all of which so suited us!), this is the ideal place. The wood-burning stove is great and quickly warms the whole cottage, even on a cold winter's night (there is also background electric heating). The kitchen is adequately equipped. The bedroom upstairs is cosy; on a clear night open the window-blind above the comfy bed and fall asleep gazing up at the Milky Way. Great walks in Glenprosen and neighbouring glens. Lots of wildlife - deer, red squirrels, golden eagles, etc. Peacocks patrol the grounds. Be sure to walk up to Corrie Fee at the head of Glen Doll, and be amazed. Bring lots of food and drink - nearest shops are 12 miles away. Excellent value for money, we thought, at November rates, though summer is of course much more expensive.
