These beautifully situated holiday cottages are part of historic Newhall Estate, just 14 miles south west of the vibrant city of Edinburgh, and a central base from which to explore further afield to Glasgow, Stirling, Fife and the Scottish Borders. Newhall’s 1,100 acres are on the edge of the Pentland Hills Regional Park, a wonderful landscape sculpted by glaciers and water, with hillwalking and biking to suit all abilities. Newhall Steading Cottage (ref 30949), skilfully converted from the original farm steading, is privately situated about 220 yards from Newhall House. The bright open-plan living area has a cosy woodburner and French doors leading to small terrace opposite a walled garden. The Bothy (ref 30950) is adjacent to Newhall Steading Cottage and is a tiny haven for two, with a galley kitchen and compact living area opening onto the garden and courtyard beyond. The owners’ 2-acre walled garden is a peaceful spot for relaxing in and produces a great array of spring and summer flowers. Spittal Cottage (ref 30951) and Spittal Coach House (ref 30952) are set a mile away on a working hill sheep farm, bounded on its west side by a reservoir where brown trout fishing may be arranged and the bird hide is a great vantage point from which to watch ducks, geese and heron. Spittal Coach House is a spectacular conversion from an 18th-century farm steading. The beautifully light, spacious, oak floored living area has a central, double-sided woodburner and three huge arched windows opening onto a paved terrace. Spittal Cottage is a traditional, south-facing farm cottage, with fine views and a delightful cosy living room and stunning walking from the doorstep. The nearby North Esk Glen has over a mile of delightful paths, some steep, with a rich variety of wildlife. The patient observer may be rewarded by a glimpse of an otter or badger. The village of West Linton, 5 miles, has local shops, a pub and good restaurant, while Carlops, 1½ miles, has a pub serving food. Shop and restaurant 4½ miles, pub 1½ miles.
