We stayed in the Auchentoshan cottage and was delighted with the quality of furnishings... read more and finish.
The surroundings and views are stunning. The cottage lends itself to a drink on the patio during a sunny evening, although we had to dodge the showers for that event.
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 stay in August was to relax and meet up with other family members and of course spend time exploring the hillside conveniently located on the doorstep of cottages

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.
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.
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.

Can’t recommend this more highly for a short or long break, endless walks right behind the cottage with stunning views across the Clyde.

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.
