    Here at Craigend we take the 'BED' part of Bed and Breakfast very seriously!  We believe that this is one of the most important apects of our B&B and have invested in the highest quality beds and offer guests the option to book rooms according the mattress type which suits them best.  Where else could you choose whether you have a memory foam, pocket sprung or coil sprung bed?  We also offer a choice of pillows and duvets to ensure that you sleep just as well here as you do at home....and in some cases...better!

    Craigend B&B sits in the end of a no through lane surrounded by agricultural land, moors and woodland.  In the last 5 years we have set about transforming a former field into an acre and a half of garden centred around a million gallon pond.  Guests are welcome to enjoy the garden and the birds that it attracts as well as acquainting themselves with our chickens and two friendly Springer Spaniels. There is an unending amount of countryside to investigate and if you forget your boots we can even lend you some!

Craigend B&B has held the No1 B&B position on Trip Advisor for South Lanarkshire for the last 4 years and No 1 poistion on Trivago for all accommodation providers in Lanarkshire for the last 3 years.  We are also proud members of Scotlands Best B&Bs which showcases 96 of the best B&Bs in Scotland

    Road Directions

    Exit M74 Jct 12 travelling north or Jct 11 travelling south. Take B7078 (signposted Glasgow) which takes you under the M74 motorway and then take 1st exit (other two exits are disused) at next roundabout, again signposted B7078 and M74 (Glasgow) In less than a few yards you will see a sign on your left 'B7078 Coalburn'; take this turning and travel approx 500 yards until you see a sign on the left 'Coalburn 2 miles' (located opposite Harbro building); turn left and follow the road for approx 1 mile.

    You will come to a sharp right hand bend in the road where there is a sign on the left showing Westoun straight ahead and Coalburn to the right. DO NOT turn right, continue straight ahead up the single lane road for approximately a mile and we are at the very end of the lane where the tarmac runs out...NOT where the pin is on the map!  Go to the end of the lane and we 200 metres past the steadings which are being renovated.  Turn left off of the lane, ignoring the exit from the car park and then please park in our dedicated customer parking area we have designated.  As a courtesy to our neighbours please do not park in the shared drive.
