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.

    The cottage was lovely and cosy. The drive from Kirriemuir was beautiful but seemed a huge distance when emergency supplies were needed. Matches would have been useful so we could have had a fire on the first night but soon rectified by the second. Being able to see the milky way from our bed was a wonderful experience and though there was only one main room it was set up as if there were 4: kitchen, dining room, lounge and "snug". We didn't find the promised bags of coal for sale but that was probably more not wanting to rummage around the sheds out the back rather than them not being there. The cooker needed a bit of common sense to work out how to use it but the notes from previous visitors in the visitors book were really helpful. We enjoyed lovely hot baths most days and didn't mind about paying extra for the electricity though it had appeared to be a point of contention for others. I would warn people about using the pay phone at the end of the lane. My bank card was stopped as a consequence of my bank thinking it was fraudulent use. Meant my hubbie had to treat me for the rest of the stay. We can thoroughly recommend visiting the Glencadam distillery in Brechin. They do not do official tours for the public but the head distiller showed us around by prior arrangement and we had a wonderful time. We also saw so many animals and birds: deer, rabbits, hares, pheasants, red squirrels, partridges, buzzards and what we swear was an eagle but probably not, that our countryside "fix" is sorted for the rest of the year. We enjoyed visiting the Clova Hotel in Glen Clova but couldn't find the Drovers Inn so cannot comment of the food and drink there. Had a wonderful relaxing holiday, enjoying the countryside, good food and distant gurgle of the river and wind in the trees. We love Scotland and didn't think there was many parts that we hadn't already touched on but Glen Prosen was new for us and we will definitely try to return.

    Great location....peacefull..tranquil. ...delightful surroundings. Good base for cycling and walking. Remote which was nice but may not suit some folk. Half an hour drive to nearest shop. Modern well equiped kitchen. Modern bathroom. Comfortable seating. Very poor lighting in sitting area...difficult to read even though we were there on mid summer day! A little expensive especially as it needs quite a bit of heating and this is not included.

    Tinkerbelle is a cracking little cottage for 2 people looking to "get away from it all". It had everything we needed to make our stay the "winding down" break that we needed. We are experienced with old houses and woodburning stoves, so no issues there - we cranked that baby up full-tilt, and were super-cosy, despite the feet of snow outside! We loved the quirkyness, and the peace and quiet. Two things are really needed though. Firstly, a proper shower. It would be perfectly possible to fit a shower in the awkwardly shaped bathroom - I have done so in a similar shaped space in my own home. Call me if you need plans or ideas. :-) Secondly, we'd have liked a bigger, older, sloppier sofa to loaf in front of the fire. The modern 2-seater is a bit out of character, and a bit too "sit-up-and-beg". Apart from that, we can thoroughly recommend Tinkerbelle to anyone looking for a really peaceful escape, in stunning surroundings. Just remember to make a detailed list, and ensure you have enough wine with you, as it's a loooong trek to the nearest shop!!

    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.
