The Stables is situated in the heart of the Harburn Estate and is part of the former Estate Steading. It has been sympathetically converted to form a five bedroomed property with facilities and space for families with children and babies. The ground floor accommodation provides not only an abundance of space, but has charm and character. The well-equipped kitchen with dining table has a stable door and exposed stone wall which reminds you of the history of the building. There is a large living room and a dining room (which maybe also used to enjoy the selection of toys, books and games for the younger guests). On the ground floor there is the master, family bedroom which has an en-suite shower/bathroom and a twin room with private shower room and toilet. The bedrooms are well spread out which is benefit of the ‘quirky’ layout of steading conversions. On the upper floor there are another three bedrooms and two separate bathrooms. From every window in the Stables there is a different view of the Harburn Estate’s beautifully landscaped gardens, woodlands, lochs and parkland. The owners have taken great steps to not only ensure that your stay at The Stables is comfortable, but that you will have a truly enjoyable and memorable experience at this property.
There is the Bistro19 at Harburn Golf Club which is within walking distance and served a great selection of food and drink. Livingston is nearby for eating out, shopping and fun activities. Edinburgh and Glasgow are easily reachable by both motorway and train from nearby West Calder Station. Stirling and the gateway to the Highlands, the Trossachs National Park and Loch Lomond are all accessible within approximately an hour by car. Shop, pub and restaurant 2¾ miles.

About the local area

The magnificent architecture and unique atmosphere of Edinburgh is known the world over; an elegant sophisticated city that draws visitors from around the globe who come to soak up its rich history and enjoy its ascetic grandeur. Beyond the city, the Lothian countryside provides a beautiful setting of rural towns and villages and miles of coastline with fine sandy beaches.

Edinburgh is Scotland's inspiring capital city which is both very historic and extremely cosmopolitan. The city is perched on a series of extinct volcanoes and rocky crags rising above the rather flat landscape of the Lothians and has a sheltered northern shoreline along the Firth of Forth. The castle dominates the city centre and from its ramparts you can look down on narrow medieval streets, sweeping Georgian terraces and award winning modern architecture. Spend some time in Edinburgh's museums and galleries to learn of the cities fascinating past, or walk down Princes Street for the ultimate shopping experience. The city has no shortage of excellent restaurants, modern contemporary bars and traditional Old Town pubs.

Rural Mid-Lothian is one of the hilliest parts of the region with the Pentland chain to the west and the Moorfoots to the east. Places of interest here include Dalkeith Country Park and Montagu Bridge over the River North Esk, with natural woodland that is home to foxes, deer and a variety of other animals and birds.

East Lothian has forty miles of coastline and picturesque towns and villages that range from traditional seaside towns such as Dunbar and North Berwick to country towns like Haddington, with quaint streets, speciality shops and a good selection of cafés and restaurants. This stretch of coastline from Mussleburgh to Dunbar has plenty of long golden sandy beaches and some very testing top-class links golf courses including Gullane and North Berwick.

Also well worth a visit on this coast is the award-winning Scottish Seabird Centre at North Berwick. Here visitors can watch gannets, puffins, seals and dolphins from interactive cameras and take boat trips to along the coast.
