    This cottage has to have a fantastic review the furnishings an fittings were brand new.Well maintained perfect for two people .the cottage had maps and books of interest to the area and fast internet too . The area is just country quiet roads and scenery were what we wanted five miles to petrol and shops though so bring something you need . We went to Edinburgh park and ride area the tram right into the Main Street .trains go to Glasgow from Lanark . The new Lanark mills is a world heritage site a few miles away . The key system works well for the cottage and there are people with keys nearby if you need anything . A lovely surprise view from the top part of the little garden. There is a cafe a couple of doors away but we didn’t use it we heard it was very nice . The only one point would be there is no evening entertainment if you are looking for that but such great walks .
