• About The Old Laundry

    Positioned next to the river, this is the perfect property for those who enjoy fishing.

    "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.

    Amazing relaxing break. Cottage was cosy and welcoming . No phone or tv signal was an added bonus for a few days. Would highly recommend

    Great place. The heating and meter reading is a bit complicated for holiday mindedness but overall a great place. The big winner is the estate and immediate surroundings.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Old Laundry. If it is peace and quiet you are for then look no further. Lots of lovely walks. The cottage itself was rustic and on the whole quite comfortable but basic. No TV signal but there was a large flat screen TV linked to dvd and video tape player. Would suggest taking some dvds/videos of your own although there were plenty there albeit they were a bit dated. As you are next to a burn the midges were out at night so pack some repellent! This was a totally recharge the battery holiday for us and we both left feeling great....

    Lovely cottage, exactly as expected - cosy, charming, and peaceful. Zero tv and phone signal, so be sure to take your own entertainment! Wood burning stove was brilliant at nights, there's a bag of wood and coal supplied and extra coal in the shed for £4 A bag if required. Great few days away, would definitely recommend
