What we love


Description

This converted gate lodge offers single-storey accomodation, complete with an open fire.

"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.

Once the gate lodge to Balnaboth House, this single-storey cottage has its own front garden. Open-plan sitting/dining room with open fire. Kitchen area with hob and microwave oven/grill only. Double bedroom with extra single bed (for alternative sleeping only) and en-suite shower room with toilet.

    Very quiet and relaxing break in beautiful surroundings. The cottage is homely and comfortable enough, despite being fairly basic. There is much to be said for the quietness, with no Wifi, no TV, no 4G reception in the Glen itself. Don't depend too much on the DVD player- it is rather outdated, very small, and the remote control does not work. Left a note for the maintenance about a few other small issues as well. Having said this, the cottage is user-friendly for less abled people, and well-situated for great walks and drives. We would go again.

    Beautiful countryside and interesting walks in and around Glen Prosen. Great trips to Dundee to Discovery and V&A museum.

    A great little cottage if you are looking for something old fashioned and isolated. No phone signal, tv signal or Wi-fi which is exactly what I was looking for. Sitting in front of the fire away from the world for a few days. A note as well, although it says microwave oven only it’s actually a convection oven so you have full cooking facilities
