Beautiful cottage in countryside location at the foot of the Pentland Hills with easy road and rail access to Edinburgh, Glasgow and Stirling.

Ideal as a peaceful retreat off the beaten path and a base to visit Scotland's cities and major historical and tourist attractions.

The space
Camilty Cottage is a newly converted 300 year old stone steading. It sits next to our home, a former farmhouse, with around 5 acres of gardens, woodlands, fields and a large wildlife pond.

The cottage has been lovingly refurbished to a very high standard and provides stylish, comfortable accommodation with vaulted ceiling, exposed stone wall, wooden floors and a log burner. There is a very comfortable and spacious living room open plan to cottage kitchen with dining area. An elegant King bedroom and a lovely twin room. All of the rooms look out over a secluded rear garden area with patio.

We are at the foot of the Pentland Hills, and surrounded by Harburn Estate making an ideal base for walking, mountain biking, trail running, fishing and other outdoor activities.

But, we are also just a few minutes drive from Livingston South train station and the M8 motorway, making the cottage perfect as a base for spending time in Edinburgh and Glasgow or exploring the rest of Scotland.

The cottage is an easy drive from the cities of Edinburgh (30mins away), Glasgow (45mins) and Stirling (40mins) and numerous historical and tourist attractions including Linlithgow Palace, The Kelpies, Hopetoun House...

Where you’ll be

West Lothian, Scotland, United Kingdom

We are in a very rural location, and a car is necessary. But, we are also just 3 miles from Livingston South train station with trains to Edinburgh (journey time around 20 mins) and Glasgow (around 50 mins). The cottage is about 15 minutes drive from J3 of the M8 motorway, and 30 minutes drive from Edinburgh airport (with tram and bus links).

Livingston is a large, busy town with excellent shopping, cinema, theatre, mini-golf and lots of restaurants.

The cottage is detached, but we live just next door.
