Braehead is a small village in the Lanarkshire region of the Scottish Borders. It is home to a village pub, a school and a village hall and has spectacular views all around.

Notable in Carnwath is the Wee Bush Inn dating from the 1750s, the Market Cross, and St Mary's Aisle which is the only part of the Collegiate Church on the current Parish Church and dates back to 1386. Just eight miles from Braehead is the restored cotton mill village of New Lanark, a World Heritage Site, close to the Falls of Clyde Wildlife Reserve.

The cottage was beautiful, perfect in every way. Braehead is a great area for sight seeing, near Edinburgh and lots of lovely places to see. Two doors from cottage is a pub which serves terrific food (it only serves food Friday, Saturday and Sunday). Although there are other places close by. We had a great holiday and although it was mid October the weather was kind to us. The cottage was lovely and warm at night. A place to return to.

Excellent cottage in a very quiet location, with easy access to Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Mr Sheldrake, Thetford, August 2013

This is a pretty little cottage which was immaculate and the owner was very helpful indeed. The community around were extremely friendly and the local pub/restaurant was very nice and everyone was very welcoming.

Mr Jagger, Halifax, July 2013

The cottage was very tastefully decorated with everything you could imagine included for your use. It had a very nice sunny aspect garden. It was in a lovely location for easy access to many lovely attractions and villages. The local people were all very accommodating, very friendly and informative when it came to their suggestions of things to do whilst we were there.
