Property Overview
Property Location

This secluded cottage is close to the fishing lochan at Eastend. The Queen size bedroom has fully tiled bath and shower en suite with lounge/kitchen dining open plan living area. Very cosy - the cottage of your dreams, fisherman or not!

Two hundred year old stone cottages nestle amongst the ancient sylvan landscape of the Clan lands of the Carmichaels. A 'time-capsule' 800 years of single family land stewardship of breathtaking beauty and contrasts. A land of ancient beech trees and ruined castles, of abundant wildlife and productive farming and forestry. A place to relax, to unwind, to exercise or to play in complete harmony with nature and the environment. Climb majestic Tinto Hill (707m), see the Falls of Clyde and the World Heritage Industrial Village at New Lanark; visit the Biggar museums or shop in historic Peebles or Edinburgh. The choice is yours.

The Estate operates a Farm Shop which provides fresh and frozen Estate farmed meats, organic milk, ready meals, soups, fresh local vegetables and other seasonal produce. The shop also stocks a range of Carmichael tartan souvenirs, gifts and greetings cards. Groceries from the Farm Shop can be pre ordered before you arrive. Venison, Beef and Lamb can also be pre-ordered for collection at the Farm Shop.

Open from 10am to 5pm Thursday to Sunday every week, the Tearoom at Carmichael Visitor Centre provides wholesome meals and snacks as well as a selection of organic teas and fairtrade coffees. There is Wifi broadband available in the shop so why not pop down to check your e mails during your stay.
