About Cass Delaney

Cass is from Edinburgh, and Charlie from Duns in the Scottish Borders. We live in Ampherlaw Farmhouse with our son, Lachlan and our horses, dogs, cat and chickens!

Cass Delaney purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Cass Delaney chose Scotland

Before buying Ampherlaw Farmhouse in 2004 we lived just three miles away. We often rode past the house and fell in love with its crow stepped gables and beautiful stonework. Although it was in desperate need of attention, we saw the beauty that lay beneath. We were very lucky to be riding past one day as the For Sale sign was being erected. The rest is history!!

We spent the next six years restoring it to its former glory, and at the same time extended into two of the adjoining barns. It is these barns that form the cottage that we offer for self catering holidays.

What makes this cottage unique

Ampherlaw is a little hidden gem in south Lanarkshire. The beautiful views on a fine day make you think you're living in paradise. Although it has a lovely rural position, it is only a 35 minute drive to Edinburgh.

We love staying here as we have horses, dogs, cats and chickens and we love the freedom the place offers.

Beautiful cottage!

We had a lovely and relaxing stay here! The cottage was so beautiful and well kept and the hosts were friendly and helpful. The cottage is in the perfect location for day trips to the surrounding countryside, including Glasgow and Edinburgh. We would highly recommend this cottage.

A real home from home, lovely.

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful property mixing old and new to great effect. Peaceful with stunning views.

Everything you could need.

You will need a car if you stay here as it remote. Easy to get to Edinburgh by train.

Recommend a visit to the Falls of Clyde and New Lanark.

We are delighted that you enjoyed the peaceful setting and beautiful views, as well as being able to make the most of our central location to easily reach Edinburgh. The location of the cottage is rural rather than remote, being less than 3 miles from our local village, but we always do advise a car to make the most of your stay.
