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 West Lothian

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

Review Honeysuckle Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, from Australia, stayed at Honeysuckle cottage for four nights. It was very well appointed and luxurious. Findlay was very helpful and friendly. Linlithgow is a lovely town and a great place to stay. Very central to Edinburgh and lots of other other sights. We bought a Scotland Castle pass and made good use of it. We celebrated our 37 wedding anniversary there and the cottage and the town made it very special. Fantastic place and we would love to come back some time. Thanks Findley :-)
