Description

This idyllic cottage has a woodland setting and is perfect for both walkers and cyclists with routes around this estate.

"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.

In a lovely woodland setting where the Logie Burn meets the River Prosen, this idyllic little cottage retains tremendous period charm. Open-plan living/dining room with kitchen area and multi-fuel stove. First floor: Double bedroom with 5ft bed. Shower room with toilet.

    A great and quiet little cottage to spend a week in. The estate is lovely, the bothy is as picturesque as it looks. If you’re after a week away from modern life, this fits the bill perfectly...

    We enjoyed our week staying in the Gardener's Bothy. It was pleasant to wander around the estate grounds and do walks in the area. Getting away from technology such as TV, phones and internet should be encouraged and we certainly didn't miss these things and having a radio in the cottage kept us up to date with what was going on in the rest of the world.

    This is a magical place away from the pressures of modern day life! If you can't survive a week without updating your online status or catching the latest episode of your favorite soap than it's not for you! If you love nature and tranquility it is!

    We had a great stay at the cottage, it's the 3rd time in 18months we have stayed on the estate. The location is remote but it's what we wanted and it gave us everything, the wildlife and the peace and quiet was amazing. The walls are great and the log burner provides everything that you need on a cold winters night
