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 only got the email about how to get in to the hostel after I had given up trying to get in / find the warden and gone to a hotel.

I liked the location,very peaceful,well appointed kitchen, could do with more storage cupboards. Apart from my food disappearing from the fridge while I was out walking on Monday?? It is an excellent hostel.

What a wonderful hostel! The only suggestion I can make is that more information is provided in the booking confirmation, or following it, to inform the guest that the hostel is unmanned and that a code is required to get in.
