Cobbinshaw Loch Cottages: your private getaway......
Gairnshiel Cottage at South Cobbinshaw
Gairnshiel Cottage offers delightful recently refurbished holiday accommodation. It is situated between West Calder and Carnwath in the heart of the Scottish countryside but still within 40 minutes drive of two stunning cities – Edinburgh and Glasgow.
The views from the cottage are breathtaking: it has a wonderful position on the organic farm of South Cobbinshaw overlooking the Pentland Hills and Cobbinshaw Loch. The 310 acre loch was built in 1818 to feed the Union Canal and was also used by passing steam trains to collect water.
It is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSI) due to wintering wildfowl and is popular with anglers and birdwatchers.
The recently renovated self-catering cottage has been furnished to a very high standard and has an enclosed garden with a decked seating area with views over open fields towards the Pentland Hills.
Set within the peaceful tranquillity of an organic farm overlooking the Pentland Hills and Cobbinshaw Loch, this gorgeous 2 bedroomed cottage is the perfect retreat for a relaxing Scottish holiday while being only 22 miles from the centre of Edinburgh, 30 from the hustle of Glasgow and 7 miles from the designer shops of Livingston. A perfect base for exploring many areas of scenic Scotland. Travel north, south, east or west and you won't be disappointed....
Stroll down to the loch, sit on the deck taking in the view across the fields to the Pentland Hills or read a book in front of a roaring fire. Enjoy the abundance of nature right outside your door while you reconnect with family and friends, and take life at a slower pace.
Smithy Brae, Kirknewton (this property is not at Cobbinshaw Loch)
If Gairnshiel Cottage doesn't suit your needs we have another property Smithy Brae in the village of Kirknewton on the outskirts of Edinburgh. The train station (to Edinburrgh and Glasgow) is within walking distance of the house and it is 10 minutes drive to the airport. Why not split your stay between the two properties.
