About Findlay Erskine

Rose and Findlay Erskine came to Williamscraig, in 1999, and moved into one of the old farm cottages, which we renovated over a six month period. We didn’t have much money, so decided to do the work our self’s, and worked every night, and every weekend to get it back into a condition it could be lived in. We then renovated one of the farm buildings then moved into it and rented out the cottage, slowly started to convert all the farm buildings into the accommodation your are staying in today. The first three cottages (Rose Honeysuckle, and Appletree cottages) were built in 2010 , and the second development where built in 2014 (Laurel, Beech and Eden cottages) which was an eco build, with a ground source heat pump, 10 Kw’s of solar panels, wood fibre insulation, and a clay block construction.

Findlay Erskine purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Findlay Erskine chose Linlithgow

The Cottages look really old as there built using stone and slate roofs with cast iron gutters, but are new inside with the latest insulation standards which make them very warm. We have a new swing park outside to keep the kids of the screens. There are lots of things to do for all ages and will keep any group occupied for weeks, including Edinburgh on our door step, the Scottish mountains, the sea side, and some great visits.

What makes this cottage unique

All the Cottages have their own bubbling Jacuzzi hot tub for you and your family/friends to enjoy. , which are a big hit, plus a badger cam so you can see our local badgers

  • 5 of 5

Recently spent a few days here with my girlfriend and dog for my gf's birthday. Lovely cottages in beautiful woodlands. The hot tub was sublime, the badger cam was an experience! I ended up watchin it till early hours in the morning (spooky pond cam tho at night lol) Findlay was so warming and genuine, anything we asked he sorted so special thanks to him. All in all i would highly recommend, see ye again soon mate. Antony, Natalie & Blaze (the huskie)

Owner's Response: Hi Antony I am glad you enjoyed your stay and I know the hot tub is extra special after dark with the fairy lights and atmosphere that they create. The badger Cam is so popular as well with people that stay as most people have never seen a real badger in it own habitat. I do hope you come back again, as I know you will love it the next time too. Regards Findlay

Exactly what it says on th etin

  • 5 of 5

Secluded location perhaps a bit further from Linlithgow than we thought (not really walkable) but close. Very relaxing and topped off with Badger Cam, Findlay was very helpful and appeared to be genuinely keen to look after you. A lot to see in the area and easy access to most place, Edinburgh on the train less than 30 minutes

A break with friends

  • 5 of 5

Four of us regularly head out for trips together, exploring previously unvisited areas. Neil, who's from Jersey, had never visited Scotland before, so there was a lot to live up to!

Honeysuckle Cottage was a truly brilliant find - spotlessly clean, beautifully designed, well-equipped and in a great location. (Close to all the major attractions in the region but half a mile up a private road, so well away from traffic and noise).

We could not have chosen better. Findlay was welcoming and helpful - typified by the cottage, which has plenty of tourist information available. Our only 'criticism' is that the site doesn't make enough of the fact that the master bedroom is en-suite - so a real bonus!

Holiday with children

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in 2011 and loved it so much we came back. We have friends and family in both Edinburgh and Glasgow, so its a perfect location for both (30 mins to the centre of Edinburgh and about 45--50 to Glasgow), whilst allowing you to get out of the city and enjoy the peace and quiet.

Our 2 children (3 years and also 8 months) loved being here, both inside and out and the swings/slide are a nice addition. The cottage is brilliantly furnished and you dont really need to bring the bulky things as a family, as stair gates, high chairs, travel cots and some toys/games are all provided. There is even some childrens plates/cutlery. Generally they are also very well finished throughout with everything you could need in the kitchend, towels and bedding etc, making for a very comfortable stay.

The hot tub is an excellent addition for the end of the day when the children were in bed, regardless of whether it was raining or not, a great idea.

Overall, having stayed here twice, we loved it, Findlay is a great host/owner and will always help or offer advice if you need something. We will come back, and we have recommended it to various people and will continue to do so. Its a bit of a find really, good location, good value, lovely cottages!

Thanks and hope to come back soon!!
