We stayed in garden cottage for 4 nights which was lovely, comfortable and quiet. The estate is beautiful and unspoilt with a great variety of wildlife and walks. The Gardner Gill was very friendly and happy to show us around the walled garden. We will defiantly return.

We stayed at Garden Cottage, which was very pleasant and spacious. Lovely garden outside too. Very grateful that Glen Tanar provided the stay as a prize. Lovely estate-and the particular highlight was the ranger Mike who took us on a ride of several hours, chatting about history, the estate and wildlife etc. Really enjoyable.
