The cottage is in a quiet cul-de-sac between Lennoxtown Main Street and the Strathkelvin Railway Path, a traffic-free foot and cycle path. There are lots of walks (level or steep), cycling destinations and scenic drives in the immediate area, plus plenty of brilliant attractions in easy reach by car or by bus. With a wide range of amentities nearby, including shops, pubs and restaurants, it’s the perfect recipe for a peaceful break and an ideal base for exploring Scotland.

We can accommodate up to 6 adults (8 can be accommodated on special request, and a small surcharge is payable). It offers three well furnished bedrooms (one with a walk-in wardrobe), two of which can be arranged to suit various configurations – double, twin, or single. In addition, there is a comfortable bed settee in the living room if needed.

The cottage is situated in a small group of houses on the eastern edge of the country town of Lennoxtown. The village has all the facilities that you need – two large and some small grocers (the Co-op is open till 10pm at night), two repair garages, a petrol station, newsagent, hairdressers, cafe, restaurants, fast-food outlets, a butcher, gift shop, pharmacy, doctor’s surgery, three churches, two lovely parks (including children’s play park and pond with ducks), a golf course. It is also 3 miles from Kirkintilloch, with a wide range of shops, and only 25 minutes drive from Glasgow’s city centre, one of Scotland’s two major cities. Or travel east and you are soon on the road to Edinburgh, Stirling, Perth – easy access to the M9, M80 and M8 takes you rapidly to all the key areas of Scotland.
Lennoxtown nestles at the foot of the beautiful Campsie Fells, and their towering crags can been seen from windows of the house, changing colour with the seasons – green with spring grasses, purple with heather, golden with bracken – or wrapped in ethereal mists, waterfalls tumbling down their rugged crags. The Campsies provide wonderful scope for hiking, fishing, birdwatching, wild flower study, entymology or just wandering. Books are available in the house to help you develop these interests.
The pretty Glazert Water is only 2 minutes from your door, with a path alongside it that gives a lovely level country walk to the shops, or beyond into the wider countryside.
