The Dower House is a former family home and has the facilities to match. With its large kitchen area, grand living room with panoramic windows and separate reading/games room, the spaciousness of the Dower House can easily accommodate up to 10 people. While impressive in size, the Dower House’s Scottish medieval design with Baronial style turrets makes the Dower House into a real warm home in the heart of the estate. Finally the private drive and surrounding garden with beautiful lawns allows you to completely relax and enjoy the impressive surroundings.
The ground floor of the Dower House has been fully adapted for disabled access featuring a walk-in wet room with wheelchair accessible shower and toilet opposite a twin bedroom. The rear entrance access by ramp passes through a cloak room which leads into the utility area with sink, washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher. This area is connected to the large kitchen and dining area which seats 10 people. The connecting hallway gives access to the private reading/games room, front entrance lobby, the large living area and a second bathroom comprising of bath & toilet, next to the previously mentioned disabled facilities.
The main hallway in the Dower House gives access to the stairwell that leads to the first floor. Here you will find the master double bedroom on the left, opposite to a twin bed room with a toilet in between. If you exit the stairs to the right you will be led into a twin bedroom which leads into a double bedroom through an adjoining walkway. All bedrooms on the first floor feature large windows allowing guests to enjoy a 360 degree view of the estate, featuring Glen Taitneach and Ben Gulabin which rises 1,500 feet above the house.
Please note: There are ground nesting birds of the highest conservation priority in this area, together with livestock (particularly sheep and lambs).
Another wonderful week with fabulous blue skies and sunshine. Recommend walk along Glen Taitneach to Loch nan Eun. Also the homemade cake and shortbread at the Glenshee Pottery! We just love the cottage and found it very clean and welcoming with the fire ready laid. Easter Day service at the church was our highlight with a very warm welcome and came away with bunches of daffodils and special memories. We'll be back (again).Alan and Anne
