What we love


Description

Isolated on the high more of Balnaboth Estate, this is an ideal property to take that well earned break from it all.

"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 in splendid isolation on the high moor of the estate, this detached, single-storey cottage is a complete antidote to the stresses of the modern world. The only neighbours are the wild birds including golden eagles and deer that inhabit the beautiful countryside and there are stunning views all round the cottage. Ideal for walkers, with fantastic walks to the Munros of Dreish and Mayar from the doorstep, and for wildlife enthusiasts and those who need complete peace. Living room with dining area and open fire in stone surround. Steep step down to compact kitchen. Steep step up to double bedroom. Twin bedroom with additional single bed (for +1). Bathroom with toilet.

    Views and wildlife fantastic. The cottage is in need of some repair work. Not the greatest cleanliness as we had to clean the cutlery, pots & pans before use. However we had a lovely time there.

    Potentially a lovely cottage in a stunning location. However the fact that the carpet in kitchen, hall and bathroom were dirty, the kitchen cupboard door was falling off and the awful cutlery was not acceptable even though the cottage was reasonably priced. To charge £75 for the dogs and to charge for electricity was way overboard.The bed was reasonable and the sofa was comfortable but the table and chairs were tired and could do with replacing. There was not much in the kitchen I.e potato masher or grater plus other things that you would expect to find. Couldn’t use grill as no rack. Finally blood on the tatty bath mat ugh!!

    This is a simple, secluded former shepherd's cottage in the hills above Glen Prosen accessed via 1 mile or so of basic farm track from the main road. Surrounded by open moorland with no neighbours and lots of wildlife. Heating is by open fire or electric heaters - no central heating so outside of the summer months its not the warmest of houses. Great for walking and the outdoors with direct access to the tracks over the moors and hills.
