Description

This half-round property is set amidst trees in the grounds of the Bainaboth Estate, offering a peaceful retreat.

"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 amidst trees near the main house, this unique, half-round cottage has been converted from the original dairy. Open-plan sitting/dining room with multi-fuel stove and kitchen area. First floor: Wood-panelled double bedroom with 5ft bed, coombed ceiling and en-suite bathroom with toilet.

    Tinkerbell is a wonderful place to be. If what you seek is quietness and peace, you find that there. We have only one complain: and that is the shower. It DOES NOT FUNCTION AT ALL, which is frustrating. Advise: replace the shower for a good functioning one and every one will be happy (again).

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; I’m very puzzled by the reference to the shower. There is none, and unfortunately there is no room to fit one, see earlier comments. There is a combination tap/shower head on the bath for hair washing, and this works fine; we use it each week when cleaning the bath.

    Lovely cottage and location- very Hansel and Gretel! Beautiful areas all over the estate to sit out in and enjoy the sun. The bed was a bit hard and the main oven did not work when we were there. Also remember to bring some warm clothes because, being a former dairy, it’s always cool inside. But we loved the peacocks joining us for breakfast and would definitely come again.

    I was not on holiday but putting in time before a house move was completed. I took the cottage in the knowledge that there was no WiFi or other reception which I came to regret but I quite understand that it is done intentionally for honeymooners or perhaps someone wishing to be free of distractions, so I should not score it any less for what was my own choice

    A beautiful cottage in the picturesque setting of Glen Prosen. My wife and I have stayed here several times (got engaged on our second visit) and would recommend it for anyone who wants to get away and relax. Tinkerbelle has a beautiful and unique feel to it.

    Second stay here so we knew what to expect. Cottage was as cosy and quaint as ever and we had the added bonus of beautiful weather to enjoy the wildlife. Had a lovely fire every evening and cooked lovely local produce. Also managed to visit Glen Clova, Glen Shee, Blairgowrie and Braemar. We didn't miss the phones or TV and enjoyed each other's company while reading, knitting, drinking wine and talking. Saw so many birds and animals this time, only a pine marten missing for a clean sweep of Scottish wildlife. The handyman checked up on our supplies of fuel early in the week and once we got used to the couple of idiosyncrasies of being in someone else's home, we could not have been more happy. I wonder at the few negative comments posted in the past, what do people expect when you book a cottage that is 7 miles down a Scottish glen with no phone signal. Oh well, can't please everyone but we were certainly extremely happy and can't wait to come back and maybe rent a second cottage as well for our family to come too

    Fantastic cottage. Away from the noisy world. Peacocks coming round everyday for some food. Beautiful scenery. Coal fire, comfy bed. No phone signal which I thought was great but no where to use a phone in an emergency. Will return again. No complaints
