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 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

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.

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.
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.

With close family in the area, we’ll definitely be back, availability permitting.
