Balnaboth was our family home for over 30 years, it is a charming, rambling very old house (400yr+) full of character. It is very quirky and probably unlike anywhere else you've stayed. Tucked into the hills on the edge of the Cairngorms. The lawn is huge, with a discrete hot tub under the trees.

The space
Balnaboth was originally 4 separate houses, 13th Century hunting lodges in the Royal Forest of Glenprosen. It readily separates into 3 distinct self-contained units for families wanting their own space, but to come together in the large dining room.

Where you’ll be

Glenprosen, Angus, United Kingdom

Balnaboth is the mansion house of a largish (6000 acre) highland estate. As such it has a (good) private drive of over a mile, with gate lodge (& open gates) and the bottom.
The house sits in the fork of the river Prosen & the Logie burn (probably accounting for the name, in Gaelic). It's quite high in the hills (850') and behind it the hills rise to Munro level (over 3000').
The outside landscaping was originally laid out by our Victorian ancestors with little bridges across the streams, huge lawn, and an imposing avenue of beech trees.
The place abounds with walks, through the woods, over grass meadow, or up into the heather hills.
Spring is beautiful with extensive rhododendron flowering beside the lawn; there is nothing like croquet on the lawn in summer; the autumn colours are magnificent; and the place is magical in winter snow.
