Carmichael cottages offer you a warm welcome and a chance to recharge your batteries in the peace and quiet of the countryside.
The Carmichael family has lived on the Carmichael Estate for over seven hundred years and now we would like to welcome you to visit our beautiful and historic homelands.
We have 13 holiday cottages situated in the midst of a rural country estate off the A73 between the market towns of Lanark and Biggar.. Steeped in history and surrounded by beautiful countryside teaming with wildlife, our cottages can provide a quiet country retreat for rest and recreation or an ideal base for touring Central Southern Scotland, yet with easy access to Edinburgh and Glasgow only an hour's drive away.
You can stay in cottages that were once inhabited by the maids, butlers and gardeners that served the estate and its mansion house, which is now a spectacular ruin. Although each cottage is over two hundred years old, they have been fully modernised and contain all of todays mod cons. There is also a visitor centre, farm shop selling home produced meats and tearoom with our famous cakes on site.
