Thank you so much for your lovely review. I am delighted to hear that you found Ampherlaw to be the best self catering cottage that you have stayed in in the UK - what an accolade! The towns and villages that surround us are beautiful and we are so close to Edinburgh and Glasgow that guests find Ampherlaw the perfect base for exploring. Yes, a car is a must living 3 miles from the nearest town, although there are train links available close by to get to Edinburgh and Glasgow for those who prefer not to drive into the cities. Thank you again for staying with us, and we are so glad that you enjoyed your visit.
