Meet Olia Hercules

Olia was born in the south of Ukraine and at the age of 12 moved to Cyprus. After moving to the UK to study, she trained at the renowned Leith’s School of Food and Wine and then worked as a chef de partie in various restaurants, including Ottolenghi, and as a recipe developer before landing a book deal.

She is the author of four books: Mamushka, Summer Kitchens, Kaukasis & Home Foods.

In 2022, Olia joined forces with her friend, and Russian chef extraordinaire, Alissa Timoshkina to start #CookforUkraine, a global initiative to raise funds for those affected by the war in Ukraine.

To date the campaign as raised over £1.8million.

Need a place to stay?

We have a handful of perfect holiday cottages and a contemporary, upmarket B&B called The Coach House.

Glen Dye is a private estate of around 15,000 acres and our cabins and cottages sit slap bang at its centre, surrounded by wilderness forest and moorland on the banks of the River Dye. The location is fabled; watched over by the massive granite tor of Clachnaben and at the northern end of the Cairn o’ Mount mountain pass. This is where the Howe of the Mearns finally gives in to the Highland boundary fault; Wild, beautiful and very, very quiet.
