The downstairs king-sized bedroom and bathroom makes it perfect for the less mobile guest. Full of history and legend yet only 90 minutes from the World Heritage Site of Edinburgh, Glenisla has something to offer in every season of the year and this luxury holiday cottage in the Scottish Highlands is a gorgeous place to stay - with so much to do you will be spoilt for choice.

With its central location, Claypotts is a perfect base for exploring Scotland: whether you prefer a relaxed holiday, or an active one, the options at this delightful cottage are many and varied. In spring wander through the daffodils in the garden to the sounds of snow melt in the river and continuous bird-song. Lambing begins in March and the migrating birds return.

Why not let us take you on an off-road Landrover or walking photograph safari where you will have a good chance of seeing a rare red squirrel, deer or even an otter up close. Fish for trout from the garden (rods are available to hire) or at one of our hill lochs, or have a clay pigeon shooting lesson. Lessons for both for all ages and stages are available.

Walk the 500 yards from your door to the Fairy Glen, then along the woodland paths past the ruins of a Pictish village to the wild heathery mountain tops beyond, from which there are 360° views of the Scottish Highlands for 40 miles. If you enjoy cycling in Scotland, hire bikes from the Estate and cycle round the glen past a 16th century castle followed by a massage and dinner made by the Estate's chef who uses organic local produce whenever possible. Alternatively let us make your afternoon tea while you stroll along the river to a place beloved by Queen Victoria. In winter go sledging or ask us to arrange skis for Glenshee, 35 minutes drive. We can do your laundry, arrange for golf tees, take you to the World Heritage Site of Edinburgh or on a whisky tour.
