Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
As the name suggests, this was where the mown hay was stored. This two-storey, 2 double bedroom holiday cottage has been transformed into a comfortable space for 4 people.
As you enter the Hayloft your eye is immediately taken by the wood bridge between the 2 upstairs bedrooms.
There is an open plan kitchen with a one-of-a-kind table made from a burr elm tree trunk; the lounge with its large patio doors along with the Velux windows, make the entire aspect of this cottage light, bright and airy.
The bedrooms have beautiful views over the quiet countryside to the south and west.

About this location
The South Lanarkshire region
Ts magnificent architecture shifts from the lofty tenements and narrow closes of its medieval Old Town as they tumble down the spine of the Royal Mile, to the grace and geometric precision of the Georgian New Town. Above it all, in its towering splendour, stands the Castle.
Every step is a revelation - an alleyway which reveals an ancient courtyard, or a wynd which opens up a new panorama. And yet within this sweeping elegance is a compact city, a bustling city, and above all a city which rewards every visitor.
Beyond the city, the Lothian countryside provides a beautiful setting for the rich gems of the capital. This is an area steeped in history, filled with castles, great houses and battle sites.
It's also the ancient home of the game of golf and you can find some of the great links and parkland courses of the world here. In fact, the trails and parkland and miles of glorious coastline in the Lothians open up the countryside for everyone - from picnickers on the fine golden beaches, to walkers high in the Pentland Hills.
Glasgow was also the UK's City of Architecture and Design in 1999 and its architecture is certainly an attraction in itself. Central Glasgow's Manhattan-style town planning affords many sweeping vistas of the city's impressive Victorian buildings, dotted with little gems from the medieval to the present day. But its the Art Nouveau 'Glasgow Style' for which the city has become famous, and no one should miss the work of one of Glasgow's most celebrated sons, architect and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
Glasgow is also a shoppers' paradise, second only to London for sheer volume and variety. It's also just so stylish too, with funky bars, boutique hotels and vibrant nightlife.
The city's arts scene is world-class. Over 200 arts organisations, including Scottish Ballet and Scottish Opera, are based there, creating the cutting-edge productions and attracting high-profile exhibitions that led to the city being crowned as a European City of Culture.
Surrounding Glasgow is some of the best of Scotland's scenery, from the rolling hills of the Clyde Valley to the beautiful walking country of East Dunbartonshire that borders the south-west Highlands. Exploring further, you'll find that many of the towns and villages in the area such as Paisley, Hamilton, Biggar, Greenock, Gourock and of course the amazing New Lanark World Heritage Site make great day excursions from the city and offer a range of attractions that make discovering their rich history a real joy.
Situated in the heart of the Scottish countryside near the historic towns of Biggar and Lanark, and yet within 40 minutes of both Edinburgh and Glasgow city centres, the cottages are easily accessible by road or rail: West Calder and Carstairs railway stations are within 7-8 miles - pick up from the station available.
