“Just perfect”
Reviewed November 8, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Thank you Fiona for a lovely stay. All the little essentials were taken care of, down to bags of treats for the dogs, a dog towel, dog bed, and bowls. Fiona even remembered to put in a baby gate that we had asked for when we first booked. Cottage itself is lovely, comfiest bed we have ever slept in, very well equipped and in a fantastic location very close to a friendly pub, quiet area with lovely scenery and great for walking the dogs. Also has a secure garden. Fiona was very helpful, taking care to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we could want. Would recommend visiting New Lanark. Look forward to returning.

“Fabulous Cottage”
Reviewed September 28, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Just back from a great holiday in this fabulous cottage. We knew from first speaking to Fiona on the telephone that this was going to be excellent. The cottage was comfortable, warm and clean with everything catered for to enjoy a superb holiday. The bed was super comfy too. Fiona had even left out things for our dog, bed if required, dishes, toys and treats, who could ask for more. Our dog loved the enclosed long garden because he could at last have a run, our own garden being a bit small for him. The Pub two doors up from the cottage serves excellent meals and the owners and staff there are super friendly.

The scenery and places to visit within an hour of the cottage are superb. Fiona gave us loads of information on places to go and the best routes to find them, but there were also lots of leaflets in the cottage.

We wouldn't hesitate in booking this cottage again in the future, we felt at home and relaxed there.

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay at Sky Blue Cottage, we are absolutely over the moon you enjoyed your break there. It is wonderful to hear that everything was provided for a comfortable and homely break there, and, importantly that your dog was welcomed as part of the family too, with special treats to boot! We will be sure to pass your compliments along to the owner and hope you return again soon.

Arrived late, owner (Fiona) went out of way to arrange collection of key locally then came to show us around on arrival @ 21.30. Very welcoming.
Went beyond to sort out a personal problem that occurred while we were there.

Cottage much larger than the photos show, just like the tardis.

Located in a small rural village, very friendly people,

Pub just 2 doors away, shop within easy reach.

Perfect base to tour the area

Thank you for wonderful stay, would recomend a visit

“Cozy cottage - home from home”
Reviewed September 12, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Warm welcome by Fiona owner of the cottage who has excellent local knowledge of village and surrounding area. Decorated to a high standard and very clean. Enclosed garden with seating. Brilliant for my black labrador - no worries of him escaping. Lovely local country walks. Village pub serves good food at weekends - Frank and Jan excellent landlords. All in all a very pleasant and relaxing cottage. Loved everything about it and would recommend it to anyone wishing to visit the Scottish Borders. I shall hopefully stay again soon.

“Great cottage,well equipped with large rooms and garden, welcoming owner would stay again and again.”
Reviewed June 16, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Welcomed by Fiona the owner who gave detailed information about this lovely cottage and had kindly offered to get milk for arrival. Property is well equipped with large comfortable rooms and excellent shower, large enclosed garden with table and chairs, I ate outside on 3 occasions in a week. Weather was great.
Pub 2 doors down does great meals on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings and a very welcoming pub during the week, I also had a great steak and chips etc with all trimmings to take away. Great area for walks try Winnyknowe woodland within a mile of braehead, deer, birds flora etc.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and recommend to anyone looking for a quiet holiday with access to Edinburgh and Glasgow and Central Scotland
