About Wester Brewlands - A Scottish Highlands holiday house
This historic estate is set amongst the natural splendour of the Scottish Highlands, UK. The landscape was carved by the great glaciers of the last Ice Age, leaving a rich blend of woodland, river and glen with hills rising to over 2,500 feet. From 1234 when it became a monastic settlement, the estate has been an inspiration for those searching for peace and tranquillity. Long before that, the Picts, one of the ancient peoples of Scotland, lived on the hill above the house. Their settlements have not yet been fully excavated, but they are at least 3000 years old.
Brewlands was chartered to the monks of the Cistertian Abbey of Couper Angus on July 9th 1234 by King Alexander II of Scotland. For three hundred years the monks grazed their cattle here, making butter and cheese, brewing heather ale, catching fish to dry for the winter and putting beehives on the hill: heather honey is still very much prized in Scotland. Since the 16th century Brewlands has been a private sporting estate and the family of the present owners have lived here for more than 100 years.
