Goldenhills, also known as Ebenezer Hall, is an architect-designed holiday home that preserves many of the original features of this 1905 meeting hall - 9 coloured-glass arch-windows and a staircase hand-built from the restored timber of the church pews. It has been converted to the highest specification. Solid oak floors and top-of-the-range furniture contribute to an overall sense of calm and luxury.
Ideal holiday for families who enjoy the outdoors, or if you want a quiet week reading, writing, painting or just relaxing. Our guests tell us that the house is fantastic for a winter break or summer walking holiday. The large open-plan living area also makes it a favourite for families with young children.
Situated in the heart of the Southern Uplands, Leadhills is Scotland's second highest village, surrounded by beautiful hills, yet only an hour's drive from the centre of Glasgow. A popular spot with walkers, hikers and cyclists, it lies a short walk from the Southern Upland Way. The village is a mile from the Dumfries & Galloway border and has a hotel, a shop, and a narrow-gauge railway. There are also gold-panning excursions - you might be lucky...

The South Lanarkshire region
Beautiful rural location in the heart of the Southern Uplands, a mile from Dumfries and Galloway. Leadhills is Scotland's second highest village, famous for its 'Scottish gold'. It has the atmosphere of the Scottish Highlands and yet is just an hour's drive from Glasgow. It is surrounded by miles of marvellous hill tracks..
Scotland's Southern Uplands is a land of rolling hillsides, wild rivers, deep forests, dramatic glens and a beautiful varied seascape. Home to a wealth of artists and craftmakers, writers, musicians and artisans, this beautiful, largely untainted, region has provided inspiration for talented people over the centuries and continues today in its popular art, music and food festivals. Rich in history and culture, there are many places of historical interest for the sightseer to explore and experience, including ancient castles, the stone remains of early man, crumbling abbeys, historical houses, national parks, museums, galleries, history trails and many other places which have made their own unique stamp on world history throughout the ages.
A few miles away is the fantastic Crawick Multiverse, Charles Jencks' stunning work of land art at Sanquhar. Using stone, in the fashion of megalithic monuments, the landscape is inspired by themes of space, astronomy and the cosmos.
For the more active, the region hosts a wide variety of sporting activities, including some great river and sea fishing, field sports, golf (28 courses), mountain biking, walking, hill climbing, water sports and swimming.
Of particular interest to walkers is the Southern Upland Way, which cuts a path across the region from Portpatrick to Moffat; and the 7 Stanes mountain bike trails offer some of the world's best mountain biking to people of all abilities. The Galloway Forest's Dark Sky status provides an opportunity for stargazers to experience the spectacular splendour of the universe from the quiet of the woods, while the Solway Firth showcases a diverse seascape from rocky cliffs to sweeping, sandy beaches.
Shopping and family entertainment are easily accessible from the many towns and villages scattered across South Lanarkshire and Dumfries and Galloway: all boasting a unique charm and unforgettable experience. Summertime is gala time and many of the towns and villages throughout the region hold their centuries-old spirited pageants that involve the entire community and a warm welcome to guests is always at the top of the agenda.
The Hopeton Arms Hotel, serving bar meals and full dinners, is 200m from the front door. The village shop is next door and is open 7 days per week .Leadhills has the UK's highest golf course - pay in the village shop. The Southern Upland Way runs through Wanlockhead, a mile from the village, also home to the Lead Mining Museum and visitor centre Leadhills Narrow Gauge Railway is a fantastic attraction for children and the young at heart; Teddy Bear Museum; Drumlanrig Castle (historic house, outdoor play, mountain biking); Sanquhar FUN pool and fitness suite; Biggar: public park with tennis, golf, putting, boating and play area; Moffat - great shops, including Moffat MillDalscone Farm, Dumfries - family days out

"Great spacious, very well equipped and beatifully furnished with extremely helpful owners."
Great place to stay. Very helpful owners. Lovely property with lots of spacious rooms, very well equipped kitchen and beautiful bathrooms. Nice touches with coffee machine and pods provided. Very well furnished. In a beautiful location with stunning scenery. Sainsburys deliver to the location and we used a Pizza takeaway in Sanquhar. Small village shop just over the road. Would recommend.

"What a fantastic find."
We had a great time on our first it to this part of Scotland. The house is truly fantastic. Such a high spec and really well finished. In our group were 5 adults and 2 children (aged 7 and 10) Everyone was really comfortable and it was clear that lots of thought had been given to kitting the house out.The layout was great for families. Spent a lot of time in the upstairs open plan space. Lots of room for the 7 of us. Kids liked the playstation. Found lots of useful items in the cupboards. We especially loved the coffee machine, so much so that we ordered one online whilst we were there! Wifi was great to have as we had taken ipads and macbook etc and especially as none of us could get a mobile signal. Leadhills is a lovely Village situated in the hills but very handily close to the Motorway. Great for walking and just relaxing but large towns and Glasgow less than an hour away. Will definitely be going back.
