Built in 1820, Restored in 2018

We bought Glenarch in late July 2018 to make it our family home and run as a bed and breakfast business. We’re still researching its history but for now the below gives a flavour of the property.

There has been a house on this site for hundreds of years but Glenarch was built as it stands today in circa 1820. The house was extended during the Victorian era to provide servants quarters, a farmhouse kitchen and the stables and coach house. The latter were converted by the previous owners around 2003 to create several bedrooms which we are in the process of restoring to provide guest accommodation.

The grounds sit on the south Bank of the North Esk. On the south side is the site of Elginhaugh, the northernmost outpost of the roman empire and a the site of a bathhouse. Little visible signs remain of the Roman camp but its location is testament to the fantastic micro climate we have at Glenarch.

As you arrive down our sweeping drive you’ll be greeted by views of a lovely quaint Summerhouse pavilion. This listed building is currently undergoing some renovation but we envisage using it for guest barbecues in the future.

We look forward to your stay.
