Prosen Hostel is a charming conversion of a school house offering accommodation in small dorms and excellent facilities. There are 3 4-bed rooms and 1 6-bed room with a total of 18 bedspaces. These rooms are perfect for families as well as the dedicated outdoor enthusiast or hill walker with excellent access to Munros, the Cairngorms, the Cateran Trail and lovely low level walks. The Hostel is ideal for exclusive use, with the option of hiring the village hall.
Set in Prosen, the most intimate of the Angus Glens, the Hostel is on the southernmost edge of the Cairngorms National Park, with easy access to the East Cairngorms footpath network. Two Munros, the Mayar and Driesh, link Glenprosen to the Cairngorms plateaux.
A "green" Hostel, the building is insulated throughout with Scottish sheep’s wool. The living room has a wood burning stove, internet connection, and raised lounge area for admiring the view through the huge windows. A drying room and laundering facilities complete the cosy welcome.
The nearby village hall is available for ceilidhs and parties, therefore to book the whole Hostel is an excellent choice for a family and friends get together or celebration.
The Minister's Path leads over to Glen Clova, whilst a brand new footbridge and path alongside the prettiest stretch of the river Prosen connects via Backwater to Glenisla, and the Cateran trail, in Perthshire.
From Kirriemuir follow signs to Glenprosen (B955). At Dykehead where the main road bears right, you fork left (signed Glenprosen). Carry on for 7 miles to Glenprosen village. The public road ends at a red telephone kiosk in the village; here you turn very sharp right and follow the tarmac up the hill approx. 150m till you reach the hostel.

Sharon was extraordinarily kind, supplying me with food for both dinner and breakfast and best of all giving me and my bike a lift to Kirriemuir the following morning as I was worried by the long hills and the fear that I wouldn't make it to the Orkney ferry in time. Beautiful location, comfortable hostel. Thanks.
