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.

    Lovely wee cottage with beautiful views, came for peace and quiet and that’s exactly what we got. Place was spotlessly clean

    Excellent location with stunning views. Cottage basic but more than adequate. Would stay again. Welcome pack didn't consist of much - glad we had bought some milk!

    A perfect location for people who don't mind being away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. We had the perfect time enjoying the peace and quiet and long walks out with our dog. Get local OS maps as the Sat nav will not show many of the places and when hill walking mobile phone mapping is not ideal due to coverage.

    Unfortunately we thought the bedrooms where gloomy and uncomfortable .

    Response on behalf of the Owner; If you do not like dark wood panelling then it is not for you - see the photos. Happy to paint it white, it would certainly change the character, for better or worse. PS We have now painted the wood panelling in the bedroom; I really hope that guests like it (December 2018).

    Lovely cottage pretty much in the middle of nowhere, fantastic! Stunning views, we could never tire of waking up to the hills every day. What let it down was the flies, abundant over the exterior of the cottage and prevented us from having doors and windows open. Also, considering this is a pet and family friendly holiday home, my dog was the first to find the chemical mouse trap in the lounge. Luckily we were watching her and removed the trap before she had chance to do more than sniff the item. Otherwise, a very well maintained cottage.

    The cottage was overall not pleasant. We stayed for one night and left very early the next day. The cottage was generally very dirty & was not up to basic standard of cleanliness. The shower was either scoulding hot or freezing cold and has no pressure to it at all. There was also, no mobile phone service, signal or data at all. The owner was very rude when he was advised that the cottage was not up to a basic standard.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Buckhood is much nearer civilization than our other cottages, but still 7 miles from town. We have a pattern of engineers, or in this case their PAs, seeking accommodation while they work on facilities near Forfar, mistakenly thinking Buckhood is close to their work. The reason the shower did not work was because the new pump had been switched off. I never had any direct contact with these guests, but did inspect the property as soon as they complained, and absolutely refute the allegation of it being dirty.
