"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.

This charming conversion of the old laundry features pine-panelled ceilings in its cosy and characterful interior and a large balcony overlooking the Logie Burn which flows past the cottage. Open-plan sitting/dining room with multi-fuel stove and kitchen area. First floor: Double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and toilet.

    Snug and cosy (once the fire is going). Disconnected from mobile/television/internet so great if you are looking for complete escape. Bed is really comfy! Fantastic if you like walking. Aim to arrive during daylight hours, otherwise the final part of your drive may seem daunting. Definitely check weather forecast beforehand. The DVD player is working (26/3/18). On the TV remote you need to hold the power button down to take off standby.

    What a fantastic place. Nice, quiet and great scenery. The fact there is no WIFI or mobile signal makes sure you get a proper break and time to relax without distraction. If you like a no frills Glen's cottage experience then this is it. Fire up the log burner pour a G&T and spend some quality time relaxing. The Ollie the dog loved it.

    We had a lovely 3 nights. Sallie our pup enjoyed it too. Everything was as expected and promised. If it looked a little tired from the outside as mentioned in reviews, so what? You don't see that in the dark or from the inside where it is cosy and quaint. We live in a very rural part of Aberdeenshire and are well used to the vagaries of country life. We therefore did not find the tranquility/isolation and distance to the shops a problem as some reviews have mentioned. Everything is relative. The Co-op in Kirriemuir was open on New Year's Day and only 20 mins away !Just like home. It was relaxing not to be checking mobiles while at the cottage but entertaining to receive lots of messages at once as you approach the villages. The DVD player worked well and was well used. We could see why some might be frustrated by lack of TV if you are there for more than 3 days in the winter. We saw some satellite dishes in neighbouring properties and wondered if this would be a good investment. But the old-fashioned radio was a nice touch with great reception. (We couldn't find the green bin mentioned in the info folder so we just took our rubbish etc away. )

    It’s a cottage full of character. We really enjoyed our stay. However shower was either too cold or too hot. It’s a good place to stay if you want to explore Glen Angus. However it’s far to a lot of places in Cairngorms. The nearest supermarket is 10 miles away and Aldi is 15 miles away.
