About our location

Glenisla | Angus Glens | Scotland

Cairnhill Lodge is located near the hamlet of Kirkton of Glenisla in the Angus Glens – right in the heart of Scotland.

The Angus Glens stretch from the fertile farming plains of Strathmore in the south and reach northwards into the southern fringes of the Cairngorms National Park. There are five principal glens: Isla, Prosen, Clova, Lethnot, and Esk, along with many subsidiary glens. Each of the glens has its own distinctive character: varying in terms of landscape, ecology, habitation and usage. The glens are also home to ten Munros (Scottish mountains over 3000 feet in height).

Glenisla is the most westerly of the glens and is the only one with road access from the south and the north. It is home to many farms, several forestry plantations and a few large sporting estates. The River Isla courses from the high mountains in the north, cascading over the huge and spectacular Reekie Linn waterfall to eventually join the River Tay at Meikleour. The south of the glen gives ready access to the towns of Blairgowrie, Alyth and Kirremuir, with the cities of Perth and Dundee about an hours drive from Cairnhill Lodge. The road that exits the north of the glen provides a quick route to reach Glenshee Ski Centre (19 miles) and then on to the village of Braemar and Balmoral Castle in Royal Deeside. It also provides a scenic road route to Pitlochry, Dunkeld, Aberfeldy and the A9 to the west.

The location of Cairnhill Lodge, however, isn’t just all about moor, forest and mountainside, it is also a great base for exploring Scotland’s east coast, with many spectacular beaches only about an hour away by car. What’s more, if it is a complete change of scene and pace you are after you will find Cairnhill Lodge conveniently sits within easy reach of a huge variety of accessible heritage sites and, not forgetting of course, a big selection of whisky and gin distilleries.

Whether you’re visiting for just a few days, or for a couple of weeks, Cairnhill Lodge will make an enjoyable, relaxing and memorable location for your holiday.
