The property occupies an elevated, south facing position, with panoramic views over the surrounding area. J.M Barrie, author of Peter Pan, was born in nearby Kirriemuir and it is thought that the Manse was the inspiration for the home of Reverend Adam Yestreen in his book 'Farewell Miss Julie Logan'.

It is a Grade B listed property which has retained many of its traditional features, including ornate cornicing and large bay windows with wooden shutters. With sympathetic renovation, the Manse has the potential to be a light and spacious family home, set in an idyllic rural location. There is also potential to expand into the adjoining stone outbuilding which was formerly the Vestry.


The property benefits from large and airy rooms which, once restored, would allow for flexible family living. The ground floor encompasses three reception rooms, study, kitchen and utility area with additional storage. The first floor, which enjoys extensive views, offers three double bedrooms and a family sized bathroom.   

It should be noted that any renovation work will be subject to the necessary Planning Permissions and Building Warrants. Bell Ingram have a dedicated Design Team that can advise on potential renovation and further information can be provided by the Selling Agents.


The Manse is situated on the southern edge of the Cairngorms National Park, in the village of Glenprosen.   The nearby historic town of Kirriemuir, provides all the main amenities including shops, restaurants and Doctors' and Dentists' surgeries. Primary schooling is available locally at Cortachy with secondary schooling at the renowned Webster's High School in Kirriemuir. Private schooling is available at the High School of Dundee.   

Airports can be found at both Dundee and Aberdeen providing regular flights to London and other international destinations. The main rail network can be accessed at Dundee with services both north and south. Driving times to Edinburgh and Glasgow are estimated to be 1 ½ and 2 hours respectively.

The well-known Angus Glens surround the property and provide for a range of outdoor activities particularly walking, with a number of local way marked routes in Glenprosen, Glenclova and Glendoll all within easy reach and many tracks open to horse riders, mountain bikers and cross-country skiers. High and low ground shooting is available on local estates with salmon fishing being available on the North and South Esk Rivers. The local Glen Clova Hotel provides accommodation, restaurant and guest lodges and also issues permits for fishing on Loch Heath for rainbow and brown trout.



From the north & south, exit the A90 at Forfar onto the A926 signposted for Kirriemuir. Upon reaching Kirriemuir follow signs for The Glens (B955) until reaching Dykehead. Upon leaving Dykehead, the road to Glenprosen is signposted to the left at the 'Y' junction. Stay on this road for approximately 5.7 miles and turn off right beside the Kirk, just before the bridge into Prosen Village. The Manse can be found up a short track to the right, directly behind the church.
