  • "Highly recommend this holiday home."

    Warm, bright, clean, well equipped. The decor and furnishings were high quality, A 1 minute stroll to lovely local coffee shop for my morning coffee, then some easy accessed walks for the morning dog walk. I would definitely stay here again.

  • "Cosy sunny cottage."

    Fantastic location. Well presented and clean. Comfy beds provided for a good night sleep for all.Great shower too. Beautiful original shutters in bedrooms closed out the starry skies of Biggar at night. Chilled prosecco awaiting our arrival was a lovely touch which was appreciated, as where the biscuits, coffee and tea after a long journey. We loved having the option of the wood burner fire to settle around after a lovely day exploring Biggar and its amazing surrounds. Definitely would return.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to let us know that you enjoyed your stay. We hope to welcome you back before long! Property Owner

About the location

BIGGAR

Lanark 12.6 miles; Peebles 18.1 miles; Edinburgh 29.6 miles; Glasgow 39.2 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.
