About Us

This is a centre for the community of Glenesk in Angus and home to the much admired Glenesk Folk Museum. It is community owned by the Glenesk Trust and run by a lively team of staff and volunteers.

The original Retreat, now demolished, was a cottage, built by Captain Wemyss in the 1840s as an escape from the sea. Newly refurbished, it continues to offer a genial mix of the tranquil and convivial, for everyone.
