This wasn't our first trip to the stunning Gavinburn Cottages and we will definitely be back.... again!!
On this occasion we stayed in the Glenlivet having resided in... read more the Macallan on previous visits, both are equally fantastic in their quality of furnishings and finish.
The surroundings and views are stunning no matter what time of the year we have visited. Having enjoyed time here in both the summer and winter periods, the cottages lend themselves to a drink on the patio during a sunny evening, or cozy night on the couch by the stove when the temperature dictates.
The location is ideal for travelling around the west of Scotland, with Loch Lomond only 15 mins away by car and Glasgow City Centre easily accessible by car or by train from Old Kilpatrick. The purpose of our recent stay in August was to relax, we spent our time exploring the hillside conveniently located on the doorstep of the cottages. They are also extremely handy for the Forth & Clyde Canal footpath where we walked to the Bowling Basin.
Finally the Scottish inspired welcome hamper which was waiting for us on our arrival was a great touch and thoroughly enjoyed by my partner who was new to Scotland during our first visit. As others have commented both Alex and Leigh-Ann were a brilliant during our stay, although we had no issues they were easily contactable and had a great knowledge of the surroundings areas. I have to apologise for not submitting a review a lot sooner!! Many thanks to both of you for your hospitality.

We've already stayed twice in the Glenmorangie (one-bedroom end of row cottage) and immediately made sure to book for all of our events for the next year.
Fantastic location with breath-taking views over the River Clyde/Erskine Bridge - sunrise and sunset -wow! Well-equipped. Spotlessly clean. Large walk-in shower. Comfortable. Parking available. Conveniently situated for Loch Lomond in one direction...Glasgow the other.
And to add even more positives - a lovely 'welcome basket' awaits you on arrival stocked with milk, butter, bread, eggs, jam/marmalade, cereals, shortbread, teacakes and a small bottle of the local whisky.
All communication with Alex was clear, helpful and friendly - another bonus!
We highly recommend these cottages.

The cottage is clean, modern, fresh. The kitchen is very well equipped, with all of the usual crockery, cutlery, pans and utensils, as well as a teapot, cafetière, tinfoil, kitchen roll, teatowels, dish cloths, washing-up sponges and liquid, bin bags, torch, first aid kit, a Covid hygiene/cleaning kit etc etc. Also included is a generous supply of firewood, kindling, firelighters, a smart TV and always-on wifi, a hairdryer, full access to a laundry room with washing machine, dryer, detergent, ironing board and iron, and access to a locked bike shed. They have thought of everything!
On top of all that, the location is superb with stunning views and convenient for exploring Loch Lomond and hiking in the Trossachs as well as walking in the local Kilpatrick Hills and visiting Glasgow.
We didn't have any direct contact with Alex or Leigh-Anne during our stay and appreciated the contactless check-in/check-out with the convenient key safe just outside the cottage door. Alex and Leigh-Anne were in contact before our arrival and provided all the directions and information we needed. They also made it clear that they were readily available in case we needed them for anything.
All in all a most enjoyable stay. We rarely if ever stay at the same place twice, but we would love to stay at Gavinburn Cottages again.
