"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.

    The cottage was immaculate when we arrived. It is isolated which in the current crisis is ideal, but it is several miles from any shop if you forget something. We have stayed in the cottage before (last year) because it is convenient to visit my husband's brother just along the road, but I do find only having a microwave/convection cooking facility is very difficult and limiting, also no sharp vegetable knife or peeler and very limited amount of cutlery meant I was asking my brother-in-law to bring cutlery when he came for a meal each evening. It was reasonably suitable for my disabled husband, we enjoyed the wildlife, so many different birds.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner - This is our only property with just a microwave/convection for cooking and this was as advised by the occupational therapist designer for wheelchair users having regard to the limited space. Following industry Covid 19 advice we removed a lot of spare crockery, as well as ornaments, to facilitate disinfectant cleaning between each let, we certainly had not anticipated additional guests forgetting I’m afraid your special circumstances. Sorry about the peeler/vegetable knife, now sorted. You did not mentioned that we went to some trouble getting you additional nights at the beginning and end of your stay.
