Gavinburn Cottages were built in the 1800s by Lord Blantyre to house estate visitors. They now provide a unique location which allows you to enjoy all aspects of Scotland near the vibrant City of Glasgow, from the stunning beauty of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, to our capital, Edinburgh, which is under an hours’ drive away.

As Gavinburn Cottages are located in the Kilpatrick Hills and surrounded by farmland and amazing scenery, some Sat Navs don’t really offer much benefit!

We are well sign posted when you reach the top of Station Road and pass under the A82 in the village of Old Kilpatrick, which lies below the Erskine Bridge and then it’s a case of following the Gavinburn signs into the Kilpatrick Hills.

Remember, we’re usually available on the phone to give step by step directions or we can even meet you at a pre-determined location and you can follow us to your idyllic cottage.

We can also arrange to collect you from Glasgow Airport or Kilpatrick train station if you are leaving the car at home. Alternatively, keep fit and get out on your bike – you won’t find a better environment to get out for a cycle!
