At the top of the lane within a few hundred yards you will find the Glenogle Sports Centre with its historic baths, again recently refurbished, these Victorian swimming baths are open 7 days a week. Charges apply.

Further details

Please note there is no parking in the colonies except on a meter between 8am and 5.30pm Mon-Fri, at all other times parking is free of charge including weekends and Bank Holidays. There is some free parking a short walk away but this is subject to change and needs to be sought as and when you stay, it is particularly changeable during the festival period. There are parking meters on Glenogle road or on the road by the Botanics, both of which are within a short stroll of the property and these are reasonably priced.

The Midlothian region

Edinburgh is often described as one of the most beautiful, vibrant and cosmopolitan cities in the world and visitors can expect a mix of history with modern culture, arts and entertainment, plus some of the finest dining.

The Castle, Scottish National Gallery and Princes Street Shopping must be amongst the most famous attractions, but include the creepy underground streets at Mary Kings Close, the famous Rugby ground at Murrayfield, the Royal Yacht Britannia in nearby Leith and the M8 - Gateway to the Highlands and the rest of the stunning Scottish scenery and you really do have a holiday for all tastes!


The Cottage contains a file with many places of interest and things to do. Visitors really will be spoilt for choice. Stockbridge itself is full to bursting with lovely boutiques, a famous cheese shop, antiques and coffee houses, plus some of the greatest restaurants this side of Edinburgh! It is close to Leith and the Royal Yacht Britannia and really is within walking distance of Princes Street, for those who don't mind an uphill stroll.

Leafy cobbled streets, boutiques, coffee houses and the beautiful Botanic Gardens nestle on the doorstep of this property. Yet all this is just a stones throw from the famous Princes Street, Theatre land and Edinburgh's historic castle and galleries. It is also close to riverside walks, beaches and further afield the Pentland Hills, gateway to the adventure playground that is Scotland!

Great Bus links, the tram and readily available taxis make it easy to explore the wider city. The Castle, Mary Kings Close, Scottish National Gallery and countless other great experiences! Or just wander round the stunning parks and winding streets in the Old Town, immersed in history and wonderful architecture!

The Edinburgh Festival brings Edinburgh to the forefront of the tourist experience between August and September and there is a wealth of literary and performance entertainment, culminating with the Royal Tattoo! In December the Christmas fair and market brings Princes Street to life and then Hogmanay is something to never forget!

"Wish we were still there"

We spent a fortnight here - leaving the second week of September. What a delightful cottage in a cozy part of Edinburgh. We were a 15-minute walk from the city center (and only a 4-minute walk to our local, The Stockbridge Tap). The botanic garden was 10 minutes away, and we spent some time almost every day in that wonderful place. The cottage is everything a couple would need - in great condition with a well-equipped kitchen and lovely shower. Local tips: We enjoyed the Italian Kitchen, loved having the library so close, perused the many charity shops several times. PLUS, the Stockbridge Market is on every Sunday all year. We look forward to returning.

"Stunning cottage, perfect location, shame about the parking"

This cottage is beautiful; the pictures don’t even do it justice. It was a lovely place to stay and had everything we could possibly need. The location was great and was easy walking distance from everything we wanted to see. The only thing that spoiled our stay slightly was a miscommunication about parking. We were told that permits were required to park at the cottage and that they were available from the owners for £1 each. What we were not told was that you have to display 6 PER DAY if you want to leave the car all day. Our stay was for 2 weeks so it was not practical or cost effective for us to leave the car here all the time, meaning we had to park 15mins away from the cottage and walk every time we wanted to use / leave the car. Had we known this prior to arriving we might have booked a different cottage, as the central location and availability of parking had been what attracted us. Having said that, I would still go back because it was such a nice place to stay, but next time I’ll leave the car at home.

"A Little Treasure"

How lucky were we to find this little gem from the comfort of our home in Melbourne, Australia. The little cottage was perfect for the two of us, the housekeeper had even done some shopping for us. The cottage contains everything you would want for a holiday, a comfy bed, spotless bathroom and kitchen and even a washing machine! It was within walking distance of all the beautiful attractions of Edinburgh. The Botanic Gardens were within walking distance also, although if you are feeling a bit lazy there is a bus stop quite near. We loved our time in Edinburgh and particularly Colville Cottage and its surrounding area and would definitely return.
