Stonehill Cottage - Biggar
Holiday property description
In a true 'Get away' location, you can while away the day watching the wildlife on the surrounding hills:
Stonehill Cottage has wonderful views in a true "get away" from it all location on a working hill farm. Although you will be looking out at 10,000 acres of sky it is still well located to give easy access to the surrounding area and also the Borders towns of Biggar, Peebles, Galashiels but also not forgetting Scotland's Principal cities Glasgow and of course Edinburgh.
The farm is in an Environmentally Sensitive Area so the wildlife on the doorstep is superb with opportunities to see Hen Harriers, Buzzards, Curlew, Oyster Catcher and Red Shank, to name only a few. Herons also often nest on the small burn which runs in front of the cottage, a short distance away.
Outdoor pursuits are numerous including 7 miles of tracks to walk on the farm or a hill walk to Wanlockhead, Scotland's highest village. The long distance Southern Upland Way is also close by. Fishing is available for brown trout on the farm, go on catch your breakfast or supper! The picturesque Clyde and Nith are close by offering opportunities to take a day's salmon fishing. Golf is available at many local courses and suitable for all levels.
Local places to visit include the World Heritage Site at New Lanark which recreates life in the heyday of the woolen mills during the industrial revolution, there is also a nice riverside walk to the Falls of Clyde. Gold panning can be tried at Wanlockhead and the adjacent village of Leadhills has a lead mining museum with working railway. For those wishing to eat out, The Colebrooke Arms in nearby Crawfordjohn serves good "pub grub" booking is advisable.

Stonehill Cottage Reviews
4 star reviewBeautiful location, well-equipped cottage, very peaceful and rich in wildlife. Guests need to be aware that it is very remote, and the cottage is along a quite-long farm track which has good bits and less-good bits. We coped with our Seat Ibiza but felt a 4x4 would have been more appropriate. Nonetheless, this did not detract from having a very relaxing and refreshing holiday.Lovely to hear that you liked cottage so much, it is a real rural retreat/wilderness location which we try to make clear on the website. The roaed is normally fine for normal cars and we will pass your coments on in case any potholes need filling. A 4x4 in winter snow would help!
