• "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.

Tinkerbelle is a delightful, quirky cottage set in the most beautiful and peaceful countryside. No phone signal, tv reception or WiFi to interrupt your day which was perfect for us! There are no local amenities, the nearest shop is 10 miles away, but if you know that before you go you can work round that :-) We will be returning in the future.

Had a wonderful and very peaceful time at Tinkerbell. This place is a tardis, plenty of space inside to make yourself comfortable in front of the fire. If you want to relax and get some peace and quiet away from it all then this is your place. Lots of walks to do with the dog too.

We had an absolutely amazing time! The cottage is the cutest place we've ever stayed and it was perfect for the dogs who loved the log fire! The surrounding area is secluded but that's what we wanted. We enjoyed lots of lovely walks, mountain biking and kayaking! Would definitely bring family and friends back to stay!

I'm actually speechless at how amazingly beautiful this place was. OUTSTANDING. You are left to enjoy your time here without interference, but with knowledge you can ask for help if needed. The serenity of the place is beautiful. The only sound is the bubbling burn that lulls you into peaceful slumber. Nature surrounds - red squirrels, red deer, and birds of prey. So much to do in the surrounding areas, and is it me, or are Scottish people in general just so nicely pleasant? I felt emotional having to leave. Would I return? YES, right this minute.
