Glen Dye is a private estate of around 30,000 acres and our cabins and cottages sit slap bang at its centre, surrounded by wilderness forest and moorland on the banks of the River Dye. The location is fabled; watched over by the massive granite tor of Clachnaben and at the northern end of the Cairn o Mount mountain pass. This is where the Howe of the Mearns finally gives in to the Highland boundary fault; wild, beautiful and very, very quiet.
We have a handful of perfect holiday cottages, many with outdoor, wood-fired hot tubs and one with its own private cabin. These cabins and cottages combine jaw dropping wild locations with perfect comfort and style.
This semi-detached house was designed by Young Architects of the Year NORD in 2012 as part of a full conversion of a set of then derelict Victorian farm buildings. It is heated by a central wood chip burner and was built to a strong aesthetic and environmental brief. The house is modern, its setting Victorian. It sleeps seven in two king size beds, one twin room and one single. Large kitchen/dining room, large sitting room, two bathrooms. No detail has been overlooked to make this a perfect holiday home.
Your own yard includes a brilliant Big Green Egg (possibly the best barbecue in the world) and outdoor table and chairs.
50 metres away down a woodland path sits your very own, private Swedish wood-fired hot tub (the best in the world, we think).
As a guest at No. 4 you also have full access to The Glen Dye Arms, a BYOB pub complete with roaring log fire, ancient bar and record player. You can also use our amazing wood-fired sauna, which was custom-built for us in Wales. And we have endless vegetables and eggs for you to purchase from our very own garden.
