    Situated on the southern edge of Penicuik, Allanbank enjoys pleasant views over the north east valley. This compact semi-detached holiday cottage is part of a former weaver’s cottage dating from when the first Scottish cotton mill operated nearby in 1793. Now it is a comfy and cosy holiday home, and with excellent access into Edinburgh via the bus service which runs frequently to the city centre, (nearest bus stop just 2 minutes’ walk away, 10 minutes from Penicuik centre at night), holidaymakers can be exploring the city’s delights in no time, hassle-free. Rosslyn Chapel is 4 miles away with lovely woodland walks in Rosslyn Glen, and Glencorse Golf Course is just 2 miles.

    The Pentland Hills are a paradise for country lovers and walkers, and Glentress, near Peebles, 15 miles, has a superb range of mountain bike trails and there’s a treetop adventure waiting at Go Ape. Cyclists will enjoy the many local bike paths, including Roslin Glen. Peebles features some fabulous independent shops, restaurants and craft galleries, and for a change of scenery there’s easy access to the sandy beaches of East Lothian, the rolling Borders countryside and the Forth Bridge into Fife.

    Lovely cottage and just what we needed. Good clean condition however the bath/shower is looking a little dirty/tired. Good supply of equipment and instrucitons. Dissapointed that Wifi was not available.

    The cottage was perfectly adequate but it should be stressed that it is entirely unsuitable for anyone with a disability, as there are fairly steep steps at every turn. The parking is on street but that is not a problem. The waste disposal arrangements need clarification, ideally typed out on a sheet in the kitchen and stuck to the wall for all to see and, hopefully, read. Overall the cottage was very comfortable but it could do with a downstairs toilet, maybe in the small room adjacent to the downstairs bedroom. Penicuik itself is surprising run-down, obviously due to the enormous new retail park further up the A701 at Stairton. The bus service is excellent and punctual. The countryside all around Penicuik is beautiful and the nearness to Edinburgh an obvious bonus. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the neighbours on both sides were friendly and helpful and willing to chat.

    A lot of traffic noise due to busy bus route outside from early morning to late at night. Didn't help with not being double glazed.
