Good walks and cycles straight from the door. Ample garden area, and 10 acres of hillside including a pond to explore.More

This house is huge, beautifully designed and very special, and the setting is wow. We spent half term at Glenhoul Brae. There were 8 people and we never felt crowded. Morag (owner) was really easy to book and communicate with. We will be back 10/10
