These cottages were a fantastic find for us! Working frequently in the area for up to a month at a time, we were desperate to find accommodation that allowed us... read more some home comforts and the ability to cater for ourselves. We found that....and so much more!
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.

Stayed in the Glenmorangie cottage for a week in July 2022. The property is nothing short of superb. Beautifully furnished and equipped throughout. The views are exceptional, with an elevated... read more vista over the Erskine Bridge from the lounge and down the Firth of Clyde from the bedroom. Plenty of parking and a lovely front garden shared only with the other residents.
Also of note a fantastic walk from the front door over to Loch Humphrey reservoir and the Kilpatrick Hills. And the most opulent welcome pack ever!
With close family in the area, we’ll definitely be back, availability permitting.
This was our first trip to the stunning Gavinburn Cottages and we will definitely be back...
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 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.
