We are just home for our stay at Gavinburn cottages, we stayed in the AUCHENTOSHAN which was stunning. The cottage was spotless and equipped with everything , it’s the best equipped accommodation we have ever stayed in . The walks and views were beautiful and the owner Alex was always at hand if needed (which we didn’t as everything was perfect) we will be booking again for Easter .

This was our first trip to the stunning Gavinburn Cottages and we will definitely be back... We stayed in the Auchentoshan cottage and was delighted with the quality of furnishings and finish. The surroundings and views are stunning. The cottage lends itself to a drink on the patio during a sunny evening, although we had to dodge the showers for that event. The location is ideal for travelling around the west of Scotland, with Loch Lomond only 15 mins away by car and Glasgow City Centre easily accessible by car or by train from Old Kilpatrick. The purpose of our stay in August was to relax and meet up with other family members and of course spend time exploring the hillside conveniently located on the doorstep of cottages

This wasn't our first trip to the stunning Gavinburn Cottages and we will definitely be back.... again!! On this occasion we stayed in the Glenlivet having resided in the Macallan on previous visits, both are equally fantastic in their quality of furnishings and finish. The surroundings and views are stunning no matter what time of the year we have visited. Having enjoyed time here in both the summer and winter periods, the cottages lend themselves to a drink on the patio during a sunny evening, or cozy night on the couch by the stove when the temperature dictates. The location is ideal for travelling around the west of Scotland, with Loch Lomond only 15 mins away by car and Glasgow City Centre easily accessible by car or by train from Old Kilpatrick. The purpose of our recent stay in August was to relax, we spent our time exploring the hillside conveniently located on the doorstep of the cottages. They are also extremely handy for the Forth & Clyde Canal footpath where we walked to the Bowling Basin. Finally the Scottish inspired welcome hamper which was waiting for us on our arrival was a great touch and thoroughly enjoyed by my partner who was new to Scotland during our first visit. As others have commented both Alex and Leigh-Ann were a brilliant during our stay, although we had no issues they were easily contactable and had a great knowledge of the surroundings areas. I have to apologise for not submitting a review a lot sooner!! Many thanks to both of you for your hospitality.

Our 7-day stay at Gavinburn cottages in Old Kilpatrick Scotland was all that we could have hoped for. The location and accommodation were ideal. Our hosts spared no effort to ensure we enjoyed all the comfort and convenience of the Glenmorangie unit. Views from the cottage, set in the most tranquil farm area, were outstanding. Access to and from Glasgow city and airport, and some of the most beautiful scenery the west of Scotland offers is so easy. Should we ever return to the area, Gavinburn cottages will be our first choice for a home-from-home.

Stunning location but within easy reach of Glasgow and Loch Lomond. We stayed in Glenmorangie, which is a lovely 1 bed, ideal for us two and the dog. Everything provided including a great welcome pack. Accommodation is contemporary but in keeping with the historic cottage. Can’t recommend this more highly for a short or long break, endless walks right behind the cottage with stunning views across the Clyde. The owner Alex is very hands on and nothing was too much trouble.
