Gairnshiel Cottage - Stunning Cottage With Loch And Hill Views

Overview

Property

Updated: 27-Nov-2016
Cottage in West Calder, Nr. Edinburgh, Scotland

Gairnshiel Cottage offers delightful recently refurbished holiday accommodation. It is situated between West Calder and Carnwath in the heart of the Scottish countryside but still within 40 minutes drive of two stunning cities – Edinburgh and Glasgow. The views from the cottage are breathtaking: it has a wonderful position on the organic farm of South Cobbinshaw overlooking the Pentland Hills and Cobbinshaw Loch. The 310 acre loch was built in 1818 to feed the Union Canal and was also used by passing steam trains to collect water. It is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSI) due to wintering wildfowl and is popular with anglers and birdwatchers. For those who enjoy the outdoors nearby Harburn Golf Club is a challenging 18-hole parkland course and there are walks of all levels starting literally on your doorstep. If shopping is your thing - the designer shops of Livingston are 15 minutes away and unique little shops and galleries are found in Biggar and Peebles.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'During our 2 week stay we loved everyday being in this cosy cottage while the big cities were so close by! The views are magnificent, the peace and quiet so different from home. New Lanark was truly a revelation to explore and Bo'ness a lovely village on the Firth of Forth. It was a great holiday!' James, Holland



'This cottage is better than everything we expected. A lovely stunning cottage in a beautiful and quiet environment. We had great weather and a great time in Scotland.' Annette, Steffen & Carmen Schrapel, Germany



'Very well refurbished and a good range of kit in the kitchen, very efficient heating for us two cold morsels. Well situated for going out and about on the beautiful lowlands. The Mrs has informed me that we'll be back and I agree. Very comfortable cottage.' Andy & Janice Biddle, Hampshire



'Thankyou very much for your kind hospitality. We enjoyed your fresh vegetables and of course your lovely cottage' Skeates Family, Durham
