“Home from Home”

Reviewed 24 Mar 2016

Being in Edinburgh on a business trip I stayed here 3 weeks. My family also joined me for one of those weeks and we enjoyed the stay. Private and tranquil yet local amenities were a short drive away. Home from home with everything you will need, and the views are stunning. I will be back when I return to Edinburgh with no hesitation.

“Lovely cottage with stunning views”

Reviewed 15 Sep 2015

We had a great time in this beautiful cottage. The views were amazing, from the windows we could see over the countryside and the lake. It was very well equipped, everything we needed was there. Lynda was a great host, always at hand if we needed anything. Would recommend to anyone wanting to have some peace and quiet, but still be close enough to the city.

“A beautiful cottage in a rural location.”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2015

If you like your cottage in a rural quiet location this is the place for you. Situated on the far side of Cobbinshaw reservoir over a causeway. Lovely cottage with great views. West Calder is about 15 mins drive away where you can pick up supplies and it has a great train link to Edinborough and Glasgow. Livingston is about another four miles out with lots of shops and places to eat. A well placed cottage for a quiet relaxing vacation but only 45 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Edinburgh and Glasgow.

“Wonderful escape for daily life, in a beautiful setting”

Reviewed 22 Sep 2014

A lovely cottage, well presented, wonderful views from the garden out over farm and moor land. An excellent place to escape from the hustle and bustle of every day life. Lovely walks, then back to the cottage for a long hot bath and dinner made in the well equipped kitchen, from great local produce. Then a night relaxing with husband and dog by the log fire, really just perfect. The owners are lovey friendly people, and happy to help out if needed. A really excellent wee cottage in a beautiful setting.

“An ideal retreat from a busy world.”

Reviewed 19 Feb 2014

I booked Gairnshiel Cottage as a wee trip away for my other half and myself after Christmas. It was absolutely perfect. The weather was foul, but we were curled up in the cottage nice and warm. The quiet was wonderful, too, of the kind you can't get in town. The kitchen is also the most well stocked I've ever seen, as mentioned in previous reviews. Fabulous. The only downside is that the wifi is slow- which was perfect for us, but if anyone needed lots of fast access it's possibly something to think about. Really, honestly wonderful. We'd go again in a heartbeat. Thankyou!

“Great location for our wedding anniversary”

Reviewed 5 Jun 2013

We saw this cottage on holiday lettings and loved the pictures, but when we got here the views were magnificent. It's a great base to explore Edinburgh and the local areas. The cottage was lovely and clean with all the mod-cons. We had daily visits from the farms ginger Tom, I can say that he likes boiled eggs. All in all we enjoyed our stay and can fully recommend it. You will not be disappointed.

“Nicest cottage we've ever stayed in!”

Reviewed 3 Feb 2013

We stayed the last week of Jan 2013, the cottage was really warm and cosy, from the minute we walked in the door, it felt so homely you could live there, the cottage was spotless and well presented, David and Lynda are wonderful people, very welcoming and friendly. We had snow, hail, rain and gale force winds but we were never cold the log burner was brilliant along with the oil fired heating. Having use of the broadband meant we could keep in touch with my family from the ipad The kitchen was equipped with all the utensils and nick naks that you would ever need and the welcome pack of organic fruit, eggs, milk and a bottle of wine was awesome. The cottage is located in a stunning part of Scotland with views out over the loch and the hills. Only thing I will point out is that part of the approach track through the farm is a bit bumpy, as it is an unmade road, but the owners are in discussion to get this rectified soon. We really enjoyed our stay, in fact so much we booked to return in September. thank you David and Lynda for a wonderful holiday.

“Well-appointed cottage in stunning location.”

Reviewed 4 Oct 2012

A very comfortable and well-appointed cottage in stunning surroundings. Peaceful, with wonderful views and starlit night skies.Driving over our 'own' causeway to reach the cottage was a special experience even if the route was very bumpy! The eggs (with date of laying pencilled on) and fruit provided on arrival were much enjoyed. There was a wide variety of places to visit in the area and Glasgow and Edinburgh were within easy reach by car or train - we found the trains from Bathgate (four an hour) and the underground system in Glasgow to be very efficient. We wanted a place in the 'back of beyond', but within easy reach of Glasgow and Edinburgh, and that's exactly what this cottage provides. Highly recommended.

“A True Home from Home-ideal spot to de-stress”

Reviewed 16 Sep 2012

Countryside location the cottage is a true home from home. Ideally located in the countryside between the Cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh being just a short drive away. The cottage is light and airy with all the mod cons and if you want it a fresh supply organic veg and eggs are just out the front door the owners are organic farmers . Countryside track to the cottage was an "interesting" but not challenging has a few of the expected potholes that made our choice of low slung sports a bit of bumpy Advice you take "his" car not "hers" unless he's having a 'mid life' then visa versa.

Owner's reply: Glad you enjoyed your stay. The road has now been fixed(not the first 30m section which is owned by our neighbours)and now has a slope to allow the water to drain off so hopefully will last. Re the shower completely understand and am hoping to resolve this in the future by adding a shower room downstairs. Thanks for the positive review.

“Nice and peaceful location, stunning countryside views”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2012

Lovely cottage, nice touch to receive eggs, milk and a bottle of wine on arrival, cottage is very peaceful and in lovely location, it had everything we wanted and we had a nice break, would definetely recommend if you wanted to 'get away from it all' and chill, we got train to Edinburgh a couple of times so good spot for seeing other locations. If I had to ctriticise anything then shower/bath was no good for my 6'2" husband, road to cottage has a few potholes, so do not take your rolls royce! and if you put the heating on, which we did a couple of times in the evening and to dry some washing it's an extra, charge of £18 which we did not know about until leaving
