Fancy a romantic break in the heart of Leadhills, at Flordes Cottage? Get back to the peace and tranquillity of village life with no interruptions. Enjoy cosy nights in with a beautiful log fire, in the heart of the Southern Uplands.
Flordes Cottage is a spacious single-storey accommodation in Leadhills - Scotland's second-highest village. It is ideal for couples, and has been designed and furnished with adults in mind. For that reason we cannot take bookings for children. The cottage is centrally heated (by oil) and also has a wood-burning stove. Bedding and towels are included, as are electricity and heating costs, along with a basket of logs for the wood-burning stove. There is also private parking for one car. This is a non-smoking property and we're sorry but we cannot accommodate pets.
The Living space comprises:
Lounge: with 2 sofas (one of which converts to a bed), log burning stove and a TV.
Dining Kitchen: with table and chairs, electric cooker, microwave, large fridge/freezer, toaster and kettle
Bedroom: with double bed, wardrobe and drawers for storage
Bathroom: with bath and electric shower, wash basin and loo.
Leadhills offers tranquillity, along with a variety of outdoor pursuits and visitor attractions, and is ideally located for touring central and southern Scotland. The village is about 1300 feet above sea level and its close neighbour, Wanlockhead, is Scotland's highest village at just over 1500 feet. You can travel on the highest adhesion narrow-guage railway, play golf on the highest golf course in Scotland, enjoy walks on the Southern Upland Way (or in the surrounding countryside), visit the historic lead mine or enjoy fishing. There is also an annual gold-panning competition in Wanlockhead and visitors can participate during the summer months. A new attraction for winter is the newly-opened ski slope.
Leadhills sits in the Lowther Hills and is just half-an-hour's drive from junctions 13 or 14 on the M74. It is ideally situated for visiting Drumlanrig Castle, the forests and coast of Dumfries and Galloway, the towns of Biggar, Moffat or Dumfries, Lanark and the New Lanark Mills, and the cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh.
