Welcome to our hostel

An 18 bed 4 star hostel on the southernmost edge of Cairngorms National Park, Prosen Hostel nestles in the heart of the Angus Glens. A new footbridge & path leads along the prettiest stretch of the river Prosen to Glenisla, and links to the Cateran trail, in Perthshire. The Minister’s Path with another new bridge across the South Esk leads to the hotel in Glen Clova. Two Munros, the Mayar & Driesh, link Glenprosen to the Cairngorms plateau.

Inside there is a raised red squirrel viewing area in lounge, with wood burning stove, drying room, TV & internet. The village hall is nearby for ceilidhs etc.

I enjoyed a very pleasant night's stay at Prosen Hostel. The location is simply stunning, which makes staying here a must for that reason alone. The building is characterful and has a cosy feel to it. Bedrooms are comfortable and the kitchen has everything you need.

Sehr abgeschieden gelegenes Hostel, sehr einfach aber völlig okay. Verbesserungsvorschlag: da sich kaum Verpflegung vor Ort befindet und auch nicht gebucht werden kann, wären Hinweise an Besucher zu den nächstgelegenen Einkaufsmöglichkeiten hilfreich.
