    “We absolutely loved our stay at Sweetpea cottage and would definitely book again!”

    It is cozy but it still spacious enough with two dogs and the enclosed garden was perfect for our dogs. It had everything we needed, the only issue we had was a few minor accidents when using woodburner due to lack of gloves or tools, it gets very hot! Also if you are a sensitive sleeper there was a low humming noise which could be heard during the night and we could not work out the source, maybe from the main house as we switched everything off! But nothing a good pair of ear plugs wouldn't ...

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.
