About About this hostel

Glen Prosen is one of the most beautiful of the Angus Glens, on the southernmost edge of the Cairngorms National Park.

Prosen Hostel, near Kirriemur, was recently converted from Glen Primary School to serve the upgraded East Cairngorms footpath network. Two Munros, the Mayar & Driesh, link Glenprosen to the Cairngorms plateau.

The hostel has a large, welcoming lounge with a wood burning stove, a modern kitchen, a drying room and a raised area for admiring the view (and the red squirrels) through the school's huge windows.

The Glen is teeming with wildlife including black grouse and ptarmigan; if you're lucky, you may even see an otter or an eagle!

Reasons to visit

Sitting on the southernmost edge of the Cairngorms National Park in the heart of the Angus Glens, and with two Munros at its head, Glen Prosen is the perfect place to get away from it all.

There are lush green forests, tumbling rivers and heather-clad hillsides with picnic spots everywhere you look. And with excellent hiking and cycling routes close by it’s a great choice for walkers and mountain bikers.

Local footpaths link to the Cateran Trail and Glen Clova. The area is bustling with wildlife - red squirrels, red and roe deer, black grouse, ptarmigan, otters, red kites, woodcock, curlew, oystercatchers, lapwings and even golden eagles are regularly spotted here.
