Directions to Gairnshiel Cottage
On leaving West Calder on the A71 westbound veer to the left onto the A704 to Lanark. Carry on along this road and take the 2nd left turn signposted to Woolfords. Approximately 3 miles on immediately after the South Lanarkshire sign turn left. Carry on along this road until next to the banks of Cobbinshaw Loch and turn right onto the farm track. Pass the first farm on your right and carry on across the causeway and up the hill. Turn left at the top of the hill round the farm buildings and Gairnshiel Cottage is the detached cottage on the right hand side.
The short drive to the cottage from the main road is a mini adventure in itself. The trackcan be a wee bit bumpy in places but take your time, pick your line and enjoy the scenery!
4WD vehicles are ideal but the average 2WD car will be able to negotiate the track. Low suspension sports cars will struggle and risk damage to their undercarriage. Ferraris and Lamborghinis should stay at home!
