Property Description

"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.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The cottage was lovely although the shower facilities let a lot to be desired... If you don’t mind showering/bathing rather awkwardly then this is the ideal place for a quiet and romantic escape from everything! April 2012.
  2. Ideal location for a " get away from the stresses of todays world " No television no internet and no ’phones - heaven! Feb 2012.
  3. Fantastic location. Peaceful, quiet and relaxing. Everything you’d expect from such a secluded location. Lots of walks and opportunities to spy some wildlife. The dogs love the fire and you’ll love the relaxation! Dec 2011.
  4. Tinkerbell is a delightful, extremely well appointed property, especially well situated - as it is, in the foothils of the Cairngorms, for those who like a quite time and enjoy walking. The owners, who live nearby, are delightful and very helpful, without being intrusive. Nov 2011.
  5. If you want a nice quiet break Tinkerbell Cottage is ideal...Be sure to take essential food for your first night as nearest shops are at least 20 mins away and there is no mobile signal until you are out of the glen... again at least 20 mins away...Cottage lovely and if weather is nice one can sit outside beside the river. Lots of small towns and beaches to visit and larger cities like Aberdeen Dundee and Perth readily accessible for nice day trips N.B Be sure to take long matches to light the fire !!!!!! April 2011.
  6. It’s special....fairytale experience...sprinkled with pixie dust...just like Tinkerbell. March 2011.
  7. Very beautiful cottage. Oct 2010.
  8. Wonderful little cottage with peace and quiet aplenty. Perfect for recharging your batteries. Lovely walks and lots of wildlife on the doorstep. Sept 2010.
  9. I used the property alone, but it is clearly used by couples normally so my comments may not be typical. I found it wonderfully quiet and comfortable. It is difficult to comment on the helpfulness of the owner as I was left alone which was fine, but they were available if required. July 2010.
  10. Warm and welcoming. Beautifully situated in wonderful surroundings. Perfect for complete relaxation and brilliant for walking the dog. Dec 2009.
  11. Absolutely perfect, pure solitude and tranquility. The scenery is beautiful, the cottage is quaint and cosy. The holiday was excellent - just what we needed to recharge the batteries. We will certainly return in the future. June 2008.
  12. The cottage was absolutely beautiful, we have been recommending it to all of our friends and family. The photo’s on your website don’t actually do it justice, in real life the cottage is nicer. April 2008.
  13. This is a haven of peace and tranquility, which we would recommend to anyone who wants to get way from it all - just don’t forget the milk! Also brush up on your fire-laying skills... June 2007.
  14. A very charming little cottage, well presented by the owners. Excellent surroundings and walks to be had nearby. July 2008.
  15. It was called Tinkerbell and there was certainly a magical feel to it. It was a little haven away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life - a wildlife lovers paradise, we had a family of peacocks that came to greet us every morning, and an abundance of red (yes red) squirrels. Ideal for a getaway from the stresses of modern living. April 2007.
  16. Tinkerbell is overall a wonderful place to stay we didn’t get bored once. March 2007.
  17. Tinkerbelle was a delight!! The scenery and wildlife surrounding us were outstanding. We and our dog would recommend them to anyone who needs a little R&R in one of the most beautiful parts of the country! Sept 2008.
  18. We had the most fabulous time so relaxing will be back in the spring. Nov 2008.
  19. I loved my time at Tinkerbell and would definitely go back, i wouldn’t say the utensils/cutlery in the kitchen were the clean but was not a major problem, everything else was spot on and appreciated how all info was left in the cottage and we were left to our own devices to enjoy our holiday, perfect, Thank you. Nov 2008.
  20. Tinkerbell cottage is straight from a fairytale setting. Very romantic. So peaceful and tranquil. The view of the stars at night is breath taking. Will certainly return in the future. Dec 2008.
