About this listing

The Hayloft might once have fed livestock, but it is now a luxurious holiday cottage in a setting nothing short of magical. Redesigned in 2012 by the recipient of the Young Architects of the Year, the Hayloft fits together like a well-designed puzzle. Unlike the rustic dwelling you might imagine, it pairs modern decor with energising style. Located within a 15,000-acre private estate, this cottage works as an excellent location to engage in some of Scotland’s more remote outdoor pastimes.

You will have your choice between two double bedrooms: one on the ground level and one upstairs. The ground-floor bedroom includes an ensuite bathroom with a bathtub, shower, and heated towel rack. If you sleep upstairs, you will also have access to an ensuite wetroom. Both bedrooms are painted in exhilarating colors and brimming with luxury.

Upstairs, your party will be able to enjoy an expansive living area including a sitting room, landing, and kitchen. In the sitting room, you will find the cabin’s star attraction: the bay window that just might offer the best view of the entire glen. From this south-facing window, you can soak in a view that encompasses fields and forest. You might even spot some of the deer that wander the property. Put your feet up, sink into the comfortable seating, and relish the comfort afforded by the wood-burning stove.

In the brilliantly-equipped kitchen, you will find everything you need to prepare sumptuous meals. There is an electric oven, electric hob, fridge with freezer, dishwasher, and microwave upon request. For those who appreciate an exceptional cup of coffee, the kitchen features a Technivorm Moccamaster. If you prefer to cook in the open air, there is a Big Green Egg outdoors. Because adventures can get a little messy, a washer and dryer are also available for your use.

One of the many benefits of staying at Glen Dye is all the fresh produce. Your party will be provided a French market-style basket, and, if your stay and the vegetables are timed right, you will be able to pick your own groceries. Free-range eggs are also available. To explore other local produce in your cooking creations, Finzean Farm Shop is only 5 miles away.

To enjoy fresh-baked artisan bread throughout your stay, you can place an order at least one week before you book your trip. Pair that bread with homemade jam, jelly, or local honey to start your day with a taste of Scotland’s bounty. If you do not feel like cooking on your holiday, you can order soup, venison casserole, or venison and cider ragú to be ready for your party.

Beyond the culinary delights offered at Glen Dye’s Hayloft, you will be able to enjoy some impressive extras. There is nothing quite like unwinding in a wood-fired sauna built in Wales. Your party will also have access to the record player, blazing fireplace, and antique bar at Glen Dye Arms, a bring-your-own-beer pub. For those who need it, there is electric charging and a sheltered outdoor area perfect for storing bicycles and taking in the views.

When you are ready to leave the peaceful surroundings to explore the scenery, The Hayloft is within walking distance of Clachnaben and just off the Cairn O Mount road. If anyone in your party is “collecting Munros,” you are an hour away from Lochnagar. Travel an hour to visit the legendary painted ceilings at Crathes Castle and all the delights available at Balmoral Castle. For those who enjoy whisky, Lochnagar Distillery is a stop you cannot miss.

Whether you are looking forward to getting away from the world or reconnecting with those closest to you, the Hayloft is a fantastic place to recharge. From the modern luxury inside to the unspoiled rugged scenery, this is the perfect place for a party of four to kick back. Enjoy fresh food, wild walks, unforgettable bicycling, and, of course, the company of those most important to you. With perks like the Glen Dye Arms and the custom-built sauna, it will be difficult to keep Glen Dye a secret.
