Gavinburn Cottages are gorgeous self-catering cottages in Scotland, conveniently located halfway between Glasgow and Loch Lomond.
The self-catering cottages are situated high on the scenic Kilpatrick Hills, only 15 minutes from either Glasgow City Centre, or the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond, with stunning views overlooking the River Clyde and Erskine Bridge. This unique location also provides guests with a hill walking and mountain bike paradise. Explore the woodland trails, walk to Loch Humphrey, spot the wildlife, admire the views and meet our Highland cows and sheep.
