Glendye Cabins and Cottages
A selection of cabins, cottages and a 1950s airstream, all hidden away in a wild wood in Kincardinshire, north-east Scotland. This new venture (2019) is brought to you by the awesome Good Life Experience organisers, Charlie and Caroline Gladstone, so expect lots of wholesome outdoor fun. Cook on an open fire, plunge into a cold river for some wild swimming, let your kids run wild, free and feral - because Glendye is only for the brave..! I do love this place, it has such a cool vibe to it. But not in a hipster kind of way - in an authentic, outdoor living kind of way – wild, raw, unpretentious and just really good fun. The cabin in the wild thing is so in demand right now. Why? Well, aren't we all sick to death of sitting at a desk staring at a screen all day? Aren't we all longing for a holiday that isn't JUST laying on a plastic sun chair with the sun causing near blindness, bored to tears? I certainly am! I want adventure in the great outdoors to coin the cliche. This is fun, this is now - Scotland is now and this is the most now you're gonna get. Just book it for goodness sake. I'm telling you you'll not find better. The styling is so beautiful inside these cottages and cabins. A lot of the items are treasured artifacts and antiques inherited or bought by the Gladstones themselves over the course of their life with their many children. The placement of these beautiful objects is mixed with bright colours and modern contemporary pieces to complement beautifully. Caroline and Charlie - LOVE IT!! Keep doing what you're doing - Scotland got boring for a while there, thanks for funking up the countryside. ;-) Mention Chic Scotland on booking and receive a few bottles of local craft beer in your welcome pack. ps. I should also say that this place feels very, very remote - but actually you are only about 10 minutes drive away from very civilised Banchory (where i grew up), so you won't have to shoot and skin your dinner. Banchory has plenty of shops and nice cafes and restaurants including Buchanan Bistro at The Barn Arts which I absolutely adore. If you have kids, also try out Crathes Castle.
