Auchavan Estate Location & Activities

Dogs, walkers and cyclists welcomed

Auchavan Estate provides the breathtaking setting for three beautifuly appointed cottages in the Cairngorms National Park, Glenisla. They are situated at the top of the Glen and are ideal for walkers, cyclists, country pursuits or people just looking for a fantastic holiday.

The cottages are dog friendly and child friendly too (with the exception of The Hayloft). We also welcome shooting parties and those interested in stalking; all of which can be arranged for you. The Glenshee Ski centre is close by, as is the Cateran Trail. All of the cottages - Presnerb, The Stables and The Hayloft have been recently upgraded to a 4 or 5 star standard, with The Hayloft featuring architectural design and a sauna. They are a perfect getaway in the Angus area for a self-catering holiday.
