Location description from owner
The Scotland region
If you want to sample the rich tapestry that makes Scotland what it is, this area has it all. Travel east and you are soon on the road to Edinburgh, Stirling, Perth and Glasgow - easy access to the M9, M80 and M8 takes you rapidly to all the key areas of Scotland.Travel west and after a half hour drive through glorious scenery. Loch Lomond is at your feet, with its iconic Ben towering above it, its islands dotted across its silver waters, easily accessible in shining varnished cruise boats. Or onward to Argyllshire and the Mull of Kintyre.Travel north and the Trossachs, Aberfoyle and Callander – Rob Roy McGregor's heartland – there to be explored. Or Stirling with its ancient Castle, Bannockburn Visitor Centre, Wallace Monument.Travel south and the beautiful Firth of Clyde opens before you, the mountains of Arran blue on the horizon, the green hills of the Isle of Cumbrae (Scotland's most accessible island) only ten minutes away on the smart white ferry. Cruise these waters on the world's last seagoing paddle steamer, the Waverley, watch the seals, porpoises and dolphins, see one of the world's largest gannet colonies on Ailsa Craig. Or move on to Burns Country in Ayrshire.There's so much to see and do in easy reach – you won't know where to start and you won't want to stop!
Although a rural village, Lennoxtown has a fascinating history, including industries such as a nail works, a calico works, and an alum factory, owned by Macintosh of waterproof clothing fame. All of these are now gone without trace, and the only industry now is the bottling plant for Highland Spring Water. The town centre - soon to be redeveloped - is an excellent centre for touring, providing all facilities needed - garages, pharmacy, grocers, butchers, newsagents, doctors, churches. Lennoxtown nestles at the foot of the beautiful Campsie Fells, and their towering crags can been seen from windows of the house, changing colour with the seasons – green with spring grasses, purple with heather, golden with bracken – or wrapped in ethereal mists, waterfalls tumbling down their rugged crags. The Campsies provide wonderful scope for hiking, birdwatching or just wandering. A drive up the Crow Road at the other end of the village takes one up a steep road clinging to the mountain side, to breathtaking views over the Clyde Valley below. Continuing on through the mountain pass and across the moors, then down through woodlands, rivers, and pretty villages leads to a long straight road, built by General Wade, heading for Stirling, its ancient castle built by James IV, towering on the skyline.Close by is Barrhill - a Roman fort on the Antonine Wall. Ample scope for hill walking and for flatter walking and cycling, the towpath on the Forth & Clyde canal (3miles), connects with the new Falkirk Wheel. At the foot of the road the Thomas Muir Heritage trail hugs pretty banks of the Glazert Water. The West Highland Way, which runs from north Glasgow to Fort William, can be accessed only 7 miles away. Trout fisheries and golf courses nearby. Bus route to Glasgow 2 minutes from house. Glazert Country House Hotel only a stone's throw away if you want that quiet evening drink or delicious meal.

“Dingieshowe Cottage is clean, comfortable and well equipped”
The cottage is located in a village at the foot of the Campsie Hills. It is very convenient for the city of Glasgow, but with the added advantage of being situated in lovely countryside. It was particularly good for us as we have family and friends nearby. The accommodation was clean, spacious and comfortable and we had a brilliant week. The kitchen was very well equipped and had enough plates, glasses and mugs to provide for a banquet! In fact the owners had thought of everything to make our stay easy and enjoyable. A small private hotel is just round the corner, which was very convenient for when we didn't want to cook and we had some really nice meals there. Unfortunately we picked a rather chilly week, otherwise we would have made good use of the attractive decking area outside. All in all a very nice place to stay and I would thoroughly recommend it, we shall definitely be booking again.
Thanks for your review - it was nice to have you and we'll look forward to seeing you again - hopefully in warmer weather! When is does warm up, we have a nice outdoor settee and coffee table that go on the decking - hope you will enjoy that!
“Excellent holiday home, well located and great amenities”
Stayed here for a week at very short notice, owners were incredibly flexible and accommodating and the house is beautiful. Facilities are excellent, our boys loved playing under the cabin bed in the small childrens room (not to mention enjoying the vibrant LED lights in the conservatory) and is well located for both visting the Campsies or commuting into Glasgow by train via Lenzie. Would highly recommend this to people looking for a holiday home in the area.
Thanks for the review - hope the removal worked out ok. Best wishes in your new house! Meg and Bill
We enjoyed a fantastic few days at Dingieshowe Cottage. We travelled with two young children and the house had everything we needed, including a children's room with toys to play with. House was modern, clean and spacious. An ideal base for visiting Glasgow, we will definitely be back. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay - it was a pleasure. We love the cottage and it is great when other people do too!
“A spacious family home in a quiet residential setting”
A well equipped and spacious family home, with a hotel next door just perfect for eating out or for anyone who likes to have a drink as it's within walking distance. The house was well equipped and even had toys for younger children to keep them occupied. Only downside an extra television would have been good so as the adults could watch something other than CBeebies ha ha! But honestly a relaxing holiday and we would come back again.
Thanks for this review - we're glad you enjoyed your holiday. Point taken about the pillows - was going to replace these soon anyway, so a shopping trip will be arranged now asap! Ah, what would we do without Cbeebies!!!
“Well maintained, comfortable modern bungalow”
Thoughtfully equipped, clean bungalow on a modern estate near to centre of town. Easy to get into Glasgow for tourist attractions. Great walks in Campsie hills and by river. Good play parks nearby. Especially recommend Colziom Lennox estate an Glasgow Science centre
Thanks for your visit - I'm glad you found the playparks! They have lovely views, don't they? So glad everything went well for you.
“Spacious, comfortable and convenient”
I stayed at Dingieshowe Cottage during Easter 2015. The cottage was very spacious, comfortable and well equipped for my wife and I and our 2 young sons. We had everything we needed on hand to make sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. The property is very well managed and in very good condition. It was also helpful to have a garden and parking facilities. The cottage is located 100 yards from the Glazert hotel - and close to shops. All in all a great and comfortable base for exploring the surrounding area.
Thanks for staying at Dingieshowe Cottage - I'm glad the holiday went well!
“Very good place and location to visit Glasgow/Campsie/Trossach/Stirling area”
The small village ofLennoxtown is a good location to visit all around. The place is quiet, well furnished and all appliances working fine. We loved the veranda as dining room. There a good restaurant nearby. No problem for car parking. We were nicely welcomed by the owners. Check-out and deposit refund without problem.
Thanks for your review. We're glad you have a good time in the cottage.
