We have just returned after a fantastic week at Gavinburn cottages. What a find they are. We stayed at the Auchentoshan - it was just ‘pure dead brilliant’. The cottage is furnished to a very high standard with nice touches in every room. We were very very comfortable there. We especially loved the wood burning fire and our 15 year old son become chief fire lighter/ stoker and loved getting it going. In the evening we loved relaxing in front of the fire with a glass of wine – bliss.
The location of the cottages could not be better, sitting up in the Kilpatrick hills with stunning views down to the Clyde and Erskine Bridge. Once darkness has fallen the magic of the lights of Glasgow twinkling in the distance was a sight to see. The cottages feel so peaceful and secluded but in 2 minutes you are back down the hill and can be heading down to Loch Lomond, into Glasgow or back over the Clyde to explore the Clyde coast.
With parents and relatives in Glasgow, Paisley and Renfrew we were ideally located for catching up with them all.
The walk up the hill to Loch Humphrey is well worth the effort with great views as you get further up the hill.
For a visit into Glasgow we would recommend getting the train from Kilpatrick station into Glasgow (Queen St). It takes just under 30 minutes and means you do not have to worry about parking in Glasgow.
We would also like to thank the owner Alex Fleming who was very friendly, helpful and accommodating.
As you can probably tell we absolutely loved our week at the cottage and would highly recommend them. We will definitely be back.
