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.
Situated right next door to No4 and equipped to the same high standard. This semi-detached house 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, and for larger parties No4 & No5 are perfect to hire together creating an amazing combination of spaces to suit all ages.
To the back of No5 (and for your exclusive use) lies The Smiddy - a beautiful stone building housing a fabulous games space for you and your guests. And to the back of The Smiddy you will find an amazing, secluded outside entertaining space complete with a Swedish wood fired hot tub, a Big Green Egg BBQ, firebowl and seating for you to enjoy the tranquil surroundings of Glen Dye.
As a guest at No. 5 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.
