Rural cottage with hot tub and stunning views at Glenshee. Sleeps 2-4, enclosed garden for children + dogs.

Located in the stunning mountain and heather moorland scenery of Glenshee right at the entrance of the Cairngorms National Park, just 1 ½ hours drive from Edinburgh or Aberdeen and 2 hours from Glasgow or Inverness, The Groose Hoose Cottage @ Dalnoid, is a contemporary cottage for up to 4 guests, with a hot tub which is the perfect place to take a relaxing dip and take in the views. 

The Groose Hoose has been stylishly converted to create a contemporary and spacious cottage that sleeps 4. Accommodation consists of a king-size master bedroom with en-suite shower room, a twin bedroom, family bathroom with bath and shower over, and a large open plan living area with well-equipped kitchen, dining area and lounge area with comfy sofas, wood-burner and patio doors opening onto a large raised deck with gorgeous views over the river to Mount Blair.  There is WiFi and under-floor heating throughout.

From the deck are steps down to a private, fenced, lawned garden and hot tub – perfect for children and dogs. After a busy or lazy day, relax in the large hot tub – the guests say these are probably one of the finest views in Scotland!

The Groose Hoose at Dalnoid is themed around the amazing number of game birds such as Grouse, Pheasant, Partridge and Ptarmigan to be found in Glenshee. It is the perfect place to ‘mix and match’ a relaxing break, with as much activity and sightseeing as you want.

From the elevated deck at The Groose Hoose, you could spot an array of birdlife, roe and red deer, red squirrels and if you are very lucky pine martens and stoats! On the doorstep there are miles of low-level walks, as well as Munros (mountains over 3,000 feet), mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding, golfing, fishing or you can visit the castles and distilleries (gin & whisky) of Royal Deeside, Highland Perthshire and the Angus Glens. The new V&A Museum, Dundee which opened in September 2018 is just 1 hours’ drive away.
