Step inside the Glen Dye Estate and discover No.4 Steading Cottage, a thoughtfully converted Victorian farm building-turned-place to stay. Contemporary details and interiors radiate a vibrancy and warmth, and you’ll find your very own private wood-fired hot hub just 50-metres down a woodland path. The cottage sits side-by-side with No.5 Steading Cottage – together, they’re the ideal bookable option for larger groups of up to 14 guests.

Perfect for family & friends

With two king size beds, one twin room and a single, No.4 has room to spare for some of your favourite people. Gather around the wood burning stove in the spacious living room to share tales of your adventures around the estate.

Discover the Glen Dye Estate

One of the best things about this cottage has to be its position amidst the beautiful, wild and varied Scottish landscape. You can walk, run or cycle around the estate before taking a dip in the River Dye. It’s more relaxing than you might think!

From garden to plate

Guests can order produce from Glen Dye’s very own vegetable garden for delivery the next day. Cook up a storm in No.4’s well-equipped kitchen or throw it all on the barbecue (or more specifically, the Big Green Egg), and sit out under the night sky.

Our favourites in the area

Morning, Afternoon, Evening. You’ll never find yourself at a loss of things to do when you stay on the Glen Dye Estate. From wild swimming in the River Dye to fashioning a feast out of the estate’s home grown produce, there really is something for everyone. Here’s a selection of favourite places as recommended by the Glen Dye team.

The River Dye is the perfect place for a wild dip – it winds its way through the estate and you’ll find lots of tranquil spots surrounded by forest along the way.

Sauna relaxation

The estate also has its own custom-built wood-fired sauna which guests are welcome to use. We think it spells the perfect end to a day of epic adventuring.
