Gavinburn Cottages were built in the 1800s by Lord Blantyre and they now provide a unique location which allows you to enjoy all aspects of Scotland from the vibrant City of Glasgow to the stunning beauty of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park and our capital, Edinburgh, is under an hours’ drive away.
Not forgetting the excellent hill walking trails and mountain bike tracks in the spectacular Kilpatrick Hills, which are right on your doorstep. These trails and tracks are rated amongst the very best in Britain and if you walk or bike ride to the top of the nearby peak, Big Duncolm, you can actually see the whole width of Scotland.
We can arrange bike hire and have secure storage for your own bikes, clothing or equipment and a dedicated washing area for muddy boots, bikes and kids!
