Our 7-day stay at Gavinburn cottages in Old Kilpatrick Scotland was all that we could have hoped for. The location and accommodation were ideal. Our hosts spared no effort to... read more ensure we enjoyed all the comfort and convenience of the Glenmorangie unit. Views from the cottage, set in the most tranquil farm area, were outstanding. Access to and from Glasgow city and airport, and some of the most beautiful scenery the west of Scotland offers is so easy.
Should we ever return to the area, Gavinburn cottages will be our first choice for a home-from-home.
Stunning location but within easy reach of Glasgow and Loch Lomond. We stayed in Glenmorangie, which is a lovely 1 bed, ideal for us two and the dog. Everything provided... read more including a great welcome pack. Accommodation is contemporary but in keeping with the historic cottage. Can’t recommend this more highly for a short or long break, endless walks right behind the cottage with stunning views across the Clyde. The owner Alex is very hands on and nothing was too much trouble.

Just back from a week staying in The Macallan cottage at Gavinburn, what a perfect holiday location. The best equipped self catering cottage we have ever stayed in, every detail... read more thought of, comfortable and so cosy in the autumn evenings with the log burner fire on looking out over the twinkling lights below.
Location is perfect, hill walking on your doorstep with fantastic views. Also so close to country parks, canal, the ferries to the inner Clyde islands, Loch Lomond and some excellent restaurants, a special mention for Monadh Kitchen in Bearsden, Michelin rated food, great service and exceptional value!
Our host Alex kept us informed at all times and was excellent in dealing with a brief wifi issue, great service.
Don’t hesitate in booking Gavinburn Cottages, they live up to everything they promise and we have no doubt we are coming back soon. More
We have just completed our week break at Gavinburn cottages. This was our second visit this time staying in Glenmorangie cottage. Beautiful house with every home comfort and... read more outstanding views. Loved seeing the cows and sheep on opening the curtains each morning.
Gavinburn is ideally situated for
sightseeing in this area by public transport or further afield by car.
Very well placed for golfers as many courses nearby and I am sûre Alex could give you more information on these than myself .
Great for visiting family as we did.
We hope to come back with the grandchildren . Children would love to see the animals and play in the garden and explore the hills behind the cottage.
Only the famous scottish weather let us down.
Thank you so much to Alex and
Leigh-Anne without whom this paradise would not exist. They are wonderful hosts.

The walks and views were beautiful and the owner Alex was always at hand if needed (which we didn’t as everything was perfect) we will be booking again for Easter .
This had to be one of the best returns to Scotland we have had, staying three weeks in the Glenmorangie Cottage.
The owners Alex and Leigh - Ann,had... read more thought of everything to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable with a food and drinks package on arrival and checks to see that we had arrived and settled in OK.
We discovered that the location of the cottages is excellent with the airport close by, Glasgow City only a short drive away and Loch Lomond and the Trossacs on our doorstep.
We found the views from the Cottages south east over the Erskine Bridge and south west across the River Clyde to Greenock to be spectacular and it’s even better to watch the sun go down or see the bridge in all its glory when the lights come on.
It’s just like living in a farm with hielin coos feeding in the fields around the cottages, sheep and they’re newly born lambs playing in the burn that runs through the fields, the most beautiful horses in the paddocks as you drive too and from the cottages and not to forget the wildlife with eagles flying above, foxes running past and the occasional hare bouncing through the long grass.
Also, if you fancy a wee walk in the Old Kilpatrick Hills then, you’re almost there. We also discovered that just North of the Cottages is Loch Humphrey, a popular walk with the locals and if you have time I recommend that you don’t miss the opportunity to walk to the top and see the views from there. Also, it’s a great spot for a picnic.
Finally, I would recommend Gavinburn Cottages to anyone looking for accommodation with very high standards in the best ever location you could ask for.
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.
