Please note that the minimum stay for this property is 3 nights
This beautiful old stone house tucked away in the rugged countryside of Scotland is full of character and history. Cuttieshillock (or ‘Cutties’ to the locals) dates back at least 300 years. It was once an inn and legend has it that troops stayed there before battle in the Jacobite Rebellion. It has undergone a major refurbishment to create luxurious and peaceful accommodation for up to six. Surrounded by the spectacular landscapes of the private Glen Dye estate and with all manners of outdoor adventures on your doorstep, you can enjoy the rural escape without getting in the car once.
Inside, you’ll find a charming mix of old and new as contemporary and antique furnishings create a cosy atmosphere. There’s a comfy sitting room where you can sit back and relax in front of a fire crackling away as you peruse some of the artwork or one of the many books at hand. You’ll also find a large and fully-equipped kitchen with a large range cooker and some dining space.
The bedrooms are all beautifully furnished with their wood-pannelled walls painted in soothing blues and greens with a quirky selection of artwork adding a contemporary touch. Stunning scenery in all directions means that all of the bedrooms enjoy fantastic views. Cuttieshillock also has an outbuilding that has been converted into a space perfect for artists or writers to get creating or for simply hanging out in front of the wood-burner.
In the garden, you’ll find a space designed for making the most of the outdoors. There’s an outdoor cooking space, complete with a Big Green Egg and a pizza oven. Guests also have access to the estate’s custom-built sauna, next to an outdoor shower for an authentic experience, and a wood-fired hot tub.
Cuttieshillock is located about four miles from the main hub of the Glen Dye estate, on the northern edge of the forest. If you’re looking for some supplies for the kitchen, head to the vegetable garden to find the freshest veg available, pick up some eggs from the Glen Dye hens and stock up on local produce at the shop. While you’re there, visit the estate’s own BYOB pub, The Glen Dye Arms, with a beautiful old bar and log fire.
There are plenty of trails to explore right from your front door for both cyclists and walkers. The River Dye that flows through the estate will be on the itinerary for any keen fishermen. If you fancy a change of scene, there are lots of places to visit in the local area, from the medieval ruins of Donnattor Castle to the pretty fishing village of Stonehaven.
Short break price is £1155.
Week price is £1596.
