Courtyard cottage on estate of historic clan Douglas, with woodland walks from the door and Southern Upland Way close by.

Enjoying an idyllic situation on the 33,000-acre Douglas Estate, surrounded by open countryside and panoramic views, these three attached holiday cottages, set within a courtyard, have been renovated and furnished to a 5 star standard and provide excellent accommodation from which to explore the surrounding areas. Woodland walks are available direct from the door, and the Southern Upland Way, Scotland’s coast to coast long distance walk, runs close by. It is an ideal base for hill walking, fishing, wildlife and bird-watching, sightseeing or one of the many country estate pursuits available locally. Nearby Biggar has an array of specialist shops, pubs, eateries, Victorian-style puppet theatre, museums, boating and paddling pools, tennis courts and the famous Hogmanay bonfire and street party. Within easy reach are the cities of Edinburgh, with Scotland’s most famous castle dominating the city skyline, world-class museums, galleries, restaurants and bars, and Glasgow, a vibrant bustling city and home to the Scottish Ballet and Scottish Opera. Shops 7 miles, pub 2 miles.

    Beautiful cottage in lovely countryside, but at least a 5 mile journey to get to nearest amenities, local pub shut Mondays, Tuesdays and not open till 5pm on Wednesdays.

    Very well equipped, high standard, spacious accommodation. The location is very remote, which in many ways is marvellous and the scenery is stunning, however it's not the place for you if you are used to popping out for a pint of milk or loaf. The nearest small shop is around 7 miles away and the local pub 2 miles which only opens for meals Thursday to Sunday. However, this is all stated in the property description so you should be aware of this before booking. The road leading up to the property is very quiet and makes for a lovely walk with the dog. The cooker and microwave is easy to use, although the TV is a little complicated but after practise does not become a problem. A great holiday cottage I would recommend and use again.

    We loved the location and the cottage. Our daughter had just started at Glasgow University so we wanted to be handy but no too handy! We currently work and live in the Middle East and miss the UK countryside and greenery so the location of Elm Cottage was spectacular. It also easy to access Edinburgh. We will be back probably twice a year for our own peace and quiet and also somewhere for our daughter to chill out at.

    The cottage was well equipped and in general comfortable. The location was quiet and remote which was what we wanted. The downside of that was that the Wi-Fi proved very unreliable. It was quite good at about 7:00 am but by 10:00 connectivity was lost. My husband could download his paper early and do the crossword later but could not access emails on a regular basis. The Scrib Tree in Douglas became a regular stop for coffee and Wi-Fi! It also meant that he could not finalise some research for an article he was writing and fretted about deadlines. If you want to avoid the cyber world, the location is ideal. Two other gripes. Firstly the bed in the master bedroom is incredibly low and we had to move to the other bedroom because of difficulty in getting up. It is certainly not disabled friendly. The other problem was the ramp at the back for step free access was coated in moss and lichen and was unsafe after rain so cases had to be carried down the steps. The equipment is good but there were no instructions for some items such as the washing machine. We had a power cut after a bulb blew and the information pack gave no guide as to where the fuse box was. We would love to come back but hope the internet connectivity has improved.

    The cottage was well equipped and ideal for our short stay. Not all instructions were completely accurate or up-to-date but this caused only minor problems.

    Booked this hotel as we wanted to be close to relatives, which this was an ideal location being approx. 25 minutes from them.

    We had a super stay at Elm Cottage, it is decorated and furnished to a very high standard and was very comfortable. The only negative, which wouldn't stop us staying there again, was the limited water pressure in the shower. We would absolutely recommend this cottage and are already planning a second visit.

    the caretaker was extremely helpful to us as we couldn't find the cottage with the directions from Ayr. There were cleanliness points the draining board had residue staining on it like a bucket had been emptied on it, the bath had a tide mark ( yes the previous people had used blue bath soak) and there was an unpleasant smell in the cottage when we got there. I cleaned the things I noted and vacuumed the entrance too. The caretaker was extremely kind and helped us with directions, the fire, how to work the tv, the electrics and told us where best to walk our dog. We explored the area and the only reason we wouldn't go back is because we didn't find very much to do in the area. We drove around all the neighbouring towns and villages and the best was Lanark. What we liked was the comfy beds, the corner style bath with lots of hot water, the wood burning fire and the wifi.

    Our stay was iydilic, just what we needed for a getaway break. The cottage was perfect and log fire made an ideal winter setting. The only thing missing was grit and shovel, we found ourselves snowed in without a phone signal.... We made it a fun challenge.... Definitely come back in warmer climates x

    Beautiful cottage in a fantastic location. Lovely walks nearby. The cottage was finished to a very high standard with everything you may need. The Welcome Pack on arrival was really appreciated. Peaceful, quiet, comfortable. Can't praise this cottage enough. Would highly recommend. I will definitely be going back.
