Planning Your Visit

Prosen Hostel can only be reached by road and is nine miles from the nearest town, Kirriemuir, 12 miles from Forfar and 26 miles from the city of Dundee. As there are no shops or eating and drinking establishments in Glen Prosen, it’s best to stop off for supplies on your way here.

Kirriemuir and Forfar both have an excellent choice of shops, including butcher shops, bakeries and boutiques, as well as cafés, restaurants and pubs. There are also several supermarkets – or place an online order with Tesco, who deliver right to the door of the hostel.

Angus is renowned for its fresh produce and high quality meat, game, vegetables, soft fruit and fresh seafood. Experience a taste of Angus by visiting Peel Farm, a farm shop with a very popular tearoom in nearby Glen Isla. Peel Farm specialises in local produce – and is the home of Gin Bothy!

Alternatively, Angus company FreshFood Express delivers hampers of delicious artisan Scottish produce all over the world (including Glen Prosen!).

Due to the high mountains surrounding our glen, there’s no mobile signal in Glen Prosen but free internet access and Wi-Fi are available at Prosen Hostel and there’s a traditional red phone box in Glen Prosen village.
