Gavinburn Cottages refurbishment is nearing completion and we are now taking bookings. We’ve set our self catering cottages price tariffs at a very affordable level to celebrate our opening. You can find all the information you need to select and book your self catering cottages with details of all the facilities, activities, attractions and services on offer to all our guests right here on our new website.

Breath-taking views of Glasgow and the River Clyde, excellent hill-walking trails and a variety of mountain bike tracks are all right on your doorstep on the Kilpatrick Hills when you stay at Gavinburn Cottages. Don’t forget we’re situated only 15 minutes from Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. We can arrange bike hire and have secure storage for your own bikes and a dedicated washing area for muddy boots, bikes and the kids!

If you would rather head to the city, than the great outdoors, our self catering cottages are only 15 minutes from shopping, dining or socialising heaven in Glasgow City Centre. There’s also Kilpatrick train station located less than a mile away, and for the real jet setters, Glasgow Airport is only 10 minutes across the Erskine Bridge.

Preparing for a big night out, special event, wedding or just want pampered? The team at Gavinburn Cottages can also arrange for a qualified health and beauty therapist or hairdresser to visit your self catering cottage to make sure you look and feel a million dollars! A qualified babysitter can also be recommended.

The cottages are furnished to the very highest standard and provide guests with everything you require for a relaxing and enjoyable break. Each self catering cottage has a locally sourced breakfast welcome pack of all the essentials you need to get you started, including honey from our very own Kilpatrick Hills bees! For really organised guests, we can liaise with you in advance to arrange a full list of groceries (and pretty much anything else) to be there and unpacked, ready for your arrival. If you’re celebrating a special event, or are with a special person, we can arrange a luxury welcome gift in the form of chocolates or a bouquet of flowers.

We also have everything you need for our smaller guests from cots and highchairs to DVDs, toys and acres of play areas, with slides and swings, all very close to your self-catering cottage at Gavinburn.

Just email or phone ahead of your arrival, to arrange or discuss any of these personalised services.

Laundry facilities are provided on site, free of charge and there is ample car parking if you are entertaining visitors. We also welcome well-behaved dogs and there is stabling and fields if you wish to bring your horse!

We’ve hopefully covered everything, but if you have any suggestions or feedback please leave comments below.
