    Bed was very comfortable. Hans and Aggie are great hosts, nothing is too much bother and great advice for those who don’t know the area. Very secluded and peaceful but a great base for many of the great nearby attractions and even a bit of island hopping. Great views go without saying.

  • "The "cabin" had everything for a comfortable stay and our host was very helpful and friendly and tried to sort any issues we had, although we did find the shower sometimes was a bit hit and miss also the parking was a little tricky."

    It has to be said that the path leading up to the cabin would benefit from a good clean and tidy but I suppose all this was a reflection in the price. .

    Thankyou for you feed back ,shower had a faulty switch which has been replaced, late Autumn can make a mess of you garden. Thanks again Hans. Property Owner

    Nice and quiet. Lots of birds singing in the morning. The WiFi needs some improvement; Hans was already on to that. There are a few steps and a little path to reach the cabin; you have your own, very private, patio with outdoor furniture and bbq. Amazing views .

    ... The cabin itself was perfectly neat & tidy, with nice little touches provided by Hans (the owner), such as a complimentary welcome pack & complimentary toiletries (better than most hotels) - and during our winter stay, the cosy log burner topped it off .... Attractions such as The Kelpies, The Falkirk Wheel and The William Wallace Monument are all within easy driving distance. Many thanks to mine host, Hans, for his friendly and very informative hospitality ....

The property

Coatbridge 3.7 miles, Glasgow 12 miles; Falkirk 16.2 miles; Edinburgh 40 miles.

Enjoying an elevated position above the owner’s home in the village of Glenboig is this single storey, studio log cabin.

Blackbrae Cabin offers a romantic escape for couples seeking easy access to some of Scotland’s finest cities, including Glasgow, Stirling and Edinburgh.

Park up in the driveway and climb up the plantpot lined, decortated steps, follow a footpath up to the log cabin, taking in the amazing views of Campsie Fells and even Ben Lomond on a clear day!

Step into the open-plan living area and get to know your home away from home, kitted out with all you could need for a self-catered break.

The kitchen includes an electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge/freezer, ideal for preparing home-cooked meals when you’re not dining at a nearby restaurant, while a plush sofa and woodburning stove offers comfort for when you return in the evening.

When the weather turns warm, the patio doors slide open to allow seamless indoor/outdoor living, from which you can rustle up a hearty barbecue and set the table at the outdoor furniture.

Enjoy a refreshing shower room before wrapping yourself in the double bed and begin dreaming of your next Scottish adventure.

Resting in the heart of Scotland, Studio Cabin makes an excellent touring base from which you can easily access many cities and regions.

The nearby town of Coatbridge offers a plethora of eateries from fine dining restaurants to traditional pubs and takeaways, while there are also plenty of independent shops to source a souvenir and supermarkets for grabbing your own ingredients.

Whilst staying here, enjoy a day out to Loch Lomond, where you will find opportunities for kayaking, wind surfing and canoeing, as well as walking the Trossachs National Park, filled with rolling hills and forests waiting to be explored.

Within a 20 minute drive you are in the bustling city centre of Glasgow, presenting you with a great choice of amenities and attractions, such as the Scottish Opera, Scottish Ballet and National Theatre of Scotland, offering a vibrant cultural scene.

A little further afield lies the city of Stirling, offering more shopping opportunities and historical landmarks including Stirling Castle and the National Wallace Monument.

With all this, plus the capital city of Edinburgh within striking distance, you’ll struggle to find a better touring base than Blackbrae Cabin.

About the location


Glasgow 11 miles; Stirling 22.3 miles.

The town of Coatbridge lies east of Glasgow, in North Lanarkshire and has strong links with Lanarkshire's industrial heritage. Once known as the ‘Iron Burgh’ due to its many ironworks, the town centre’s street layout was largely influenced by the planning of the Baird family who owned one of the town’s largest ironworks. In and around the town there are many attractions including Summerlee - Scottish Museum of Industrial Heritage, a four-star visitor attraction which provides an insight into the industrial history of the area, as well as The Time Capsule leisure centre, which includes a waterpark and an ice rink and the Drumpellier Country Park, boasting two natural lochs, one of which is registered site of special scientific interest. Choose from a number of eateries and a variety of local and high street shops in the town, while there is also a railway line that provides links to Glasgow, Stirling and Edinburgh.
