What a lovely, comfortable retreat! The owners have thought of everything their guests might need. The cottage is in a beautiful historical village and surrounded by stunning scenery with lovely walks. Edinburgh is an easy drive away as are other interesting places such as the amazing New Lanark and the Falls of Clyde.
