About this property

This converted gate lodge offers single-storey accomodation, complete with an open fire.
"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.
Once the gate lodge to Balnaboth House, this single-storey cottage has its own front garden. Open-plan sitting/dining room with open fire. Kitchen area with hob and microwave oven/grill only. Double bedroom with extra single bed (for alternative sleeping only) and en-suite shower room with toilet.

    "Our holiday was very nice. The location is great, in the middle of the nature.That is what we loved. Also the owner was great. He came immidiataly when the heater did not work. We got another one. He took us up in his own car to hear and see red dear and red grouse.He is so nice. The cottage is small, very old. What we did not like was the bed. It was too small for 2 persons.There is no reiception of 4G, telephone, wifi or television, but we get use to it. We read a lot of books. It was great to experience. And...after a few days we liked it.My husband is disabled, he can manage in the cottage. Maybe a ramp at the grass will be fine."
