1 of 2 traditional stone barns set in picturesque farmland in this beautiful Angus Glen, guests can enjoy a wonderful agritourism experience.   Situated at the foot of Glenisla, this is the perfect destination to enjoy the lovely scenery and unspoilt countryside.  A most attractive barn conversion, finished to an extremely high standard with its own, very unique, charm and character. 

This beautiful traditional stone barn conversion is set in a tranquil spot surrounded by picturesque farmland in the beautiful Angus Glen. Based at the foot of Glenisla, the property offers fresh, welcoming and elegant accommodation for up to eight guests. You will be welcome to explore the extensive farmland which is also home to The Courtyard where you can buy anything from jewellery, kitchenware and books to antiques, local jams, cheeses and sweets. The farm also features a lovely coffee shop and a farm shop. Ideally situated midway between the bustling city of Dundee and the popular Glenshee Ski Centre, the property makes a fantastic base for family or a group of friends looking for an idyllic retreat in this stunning part of Scotland.

This former barn has been imaginatively converted to provide stunning and cosy accommodation. Elegantly designed and decorated in bright and relaxing tones, the property features a fantastic and beautifully furnished open-plan living area with bi-fold doors, flagstone flooring and a beamed ceiling. The property also offers a charming reading gallery overlooking the living space as well as a lovely outdoor hot tub for you to unwind in at the end of a wonderful day.

Entering this wonderful, airy and inviting semi-detached property you will find yourself in the stunning open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. The charming lounge is an ideal space to relax, chat and snuggle up with a movie. The kitchen is fully equipped and makes a stylish space for preparing your favourite meals which you can enjoy sharing in the centrally located dining area. Exploring the ground floor further, there are two lovely king-size bedrooms – one with an en-suite shower room.

Going up the stairs to the first floor you will find the delightful reading gallery which overlooks the main living space and is the perfect place to retreat to if you want to catch up with a good book and enjoy some of your own company. There are also two further bedrooms: a single room and a triple room.

Moving outside, you can enjoy a BBQ or an al fresco meal in the pretty and sheltered courtyard which features outdoor furniture, a private hot tub and views across the open countryside. You are also welcome to explore the farm which covers some 650 acres and is home to about 600 sheep and 200 cows. The farm shop stocks a range of local produce, and there’s also a coffee shop and the Courtyard, where a variety of craft demonstrations and workshops take place throughout the year.

Fantastic holiday cottage. Very spacious and well equipped. Some very nice touches. Hot tub lovely and very private. Will definitely return.

Reviewed by Julien 17th August 2019

Really lovely cottage, spacious, clean and very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed the location on the farm and being surrounded by animals with easy access to Glen Isla and the Cairngorms.

Lovely place. Great for families. Our toddler loved the farm and all the animals.

Reviewed by Lisa 17th May 2019

The property was beautiful with so much space and the staff all very friendly, the only downside I would say is the location. However, if nice weather then there is much more to enjoy in the local area

Had a great Easter break at the Glenisla escape. Used it as a base to visit Dundee, Stirling & Arbroath, bit of driving involved for all destinations. The house itself was perfect, hot tub at night was a favourite. Family used the Cafe next door and said it was very good. Would return and recommend to others.

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
