  • "Only one problem the bed, it was the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept in."

    We did complain the owner supplied a quilted mattress protector, sadly the mattress was so old the springs were almost coming through the cover and it was a very small bed it was even too small for the base. I think one of the most important things about a hotel or holiday rental is the comfort

  • "This place is brilliant."

    Quiet, and peacful. The cottage is perfect for couples and adequately stocked. If you like the country then this is for you. The owners are super friendly and once they have welcomed you, you never see them again. There is a tv, blue ray player with a selection of dvd's and also freesat. We will definately be returning. This place is a perfect for rcharging the batteries.

  • "While the web description and photographs of the property were entirely accurate, we were disappointed that the proximity of the owner's house to the holiday accommodation was not very explicit."

    There was no privacy whatsoever which was disconcerting. It was clearly a converted garage. The bedroom on the upper floor was well provisioned and attractive. Everything else felt cramped and claustrophobic. We are small, slim people but anyone larger than us would have struggled to climb the stairs and get into the shower cubicle. The heating was sporadic, wi-fi intermittent, shower water temperature not consistent and kitchen equipment was very basic. We expected at least a little freezer capacity in the fridge but there was none. Overall, a disappointing short holiday. We left early.

  • "We’ve used Greenmount before and, as before it met our expectations."

    The accommodation was everything we wanted and we would certainly recommend it to our friends.

The property

Greenmount Cottage is a quaint, detached annex positioned next to the owner’s property just outside the town of Biggar in the Scottish Borders.

This warm and well-maintained cottage is well-suited for couples wanting a relaxing retreat with plenty of outdoor opportunity on the doorstep.

Make your way into the open-plan living area, equipped with a kitchenette and a sitting area where you can watch TV or admire picturesque views of the rolling hills.

Upstairs is the spacious double bedroom, which is beautifully decorated with walnut furniture and is served by a sleek shower room.

Enjoy a drink or an alfresco meal from the rear patio where you can really appreciate the tranquil surroundings, or head into the busy market town of Biggar and browse the independent shops before stopping off for a bite in a deli or café.

Avid walkers can spend their days following the many footpaths and trails in the area, with a popular walk up Tinto Hill which gives commanding views of the Clyde Valley, while there is also the Broughton cycle route along on a disused railway and old drove road.

About the location

BIGGAR

Lanark 12 miles; Peebles 18 miles; Edinburgh 30 miles; Glasgow 39 miles.

The town of Biggar on the edge of Scotland’s Southern Uplands is believed to have been inhabited since prehistoric times, and the present A702 is on the line of the former Roman road, linking the fort at Musselburgh with the Clyde Valley. The Normans followed in the 12th century and Biggar Burn was finally bridged, providing the first permanent crossing. The town today, with the market place at its centre, retains the linear layout showing the historical importance of the A702. It has many shops, cafes and bars and is particularly renowned for its collection of museums reflecting the history of notable individuals from the area. Visit the Moat Park Heritage Centre in a disused church for a flavour of Biggar’s history. With both the Southern Upland hills, the Borders town of Peebles and cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh all within easy reach, Biggar has something for everyone.
