This cottage was well equipped, clean throughout with everything we needed, including some very nice fresh eggs and a box of chocolates. The location is great for walks and Peter was very helpful in showing us how everything worked. Thankyou for a lovely weekend and we will be back
We stayed awhile in Brockieside
With gorgeous views our hearts just sighed,
Peter and Kim made us feel so much at home
As round the cottage we did roam,
With the cutest dog called Hera we played,
Such wonderful memories were forever made.
Along with the chickens that laid eggs with taste ,
We rushed back each day with total haste,
A spiritual place to make your soul
A settled peaceful wonderful whole,
Idyllic setting, historic heart,
Traditions, love, we would never part
Until the final moment there,
More than a cottage, a place full of care,
On Brockieside hill where you stand above,
You have filled us with fondness and filled us with love.
Thank you Peter. We will absolutely be back. A wonderful, special place. Angie and Andy xxx
This house was and is really very nice. It lays against a mountain, very quietly, beautiful views. The house itself is very lovely and very complete. Peter is a fantastic owner, he takes well for his visitors. We stayed 3 weeks in England and Scotland, this was our most perfect house. We can recommend this house to families 2-4 people and is a short ride to the lakes and the mountains. You can walk to everywhere.
Very picturesque rural location with the convenience of Kilsyth nearby, and good rail access to Stirling, Edinburgh and Glasgow. Rural and relaxed. A very personable and helpful owner. A great little base, but possibly not suitable for someone with a disability.
Beautiful location looking out to the mountains beyond. It's a well appointed ingeniously designed compact cottage. We really enjoyed our stay and didn't want for anything as it was so well provisioned. We even got chocolates and free range eggs from Peter's fabulous collection of hens (we don't think the chocolates were from the hens). Peter couldn't have been more helpful or approachable as a host. I would not hesitate to recommend it. On top of that, we were able to take our beloved Rigby who also enjoyed the experience away from home and meeting Peter's dog.
Convenient location for accessing most of central belt. Peter, the owner, is very welcoming. The view from the cottage is breathtaking.Clean, tidy and comfortable inside. Peter even provided some eggs from his free range chickens -delicious. Much nicer than staying in a hotel. We will be staying here again.
