Set in the lovely Clyde Valley, this charming detached stone cottage lies within the enclosed, shared grounds of 500-year-old Braidwood Castle. The castle has been owned by the same family for 350 years, and was built around 1581 as a fortified tower to protect the Douglas family and neighbours from Border Reivers. The south-facing cottage was built as a bothy for the tower, and has been transformed into very comfortable accommodation for two people. The spacious living room has a cosy wood burner and there is a wet room, compact kitchen and a comfortable bedroom. Outside, there is a lawned area around the cottage with garden seating. The orchard and grounds are shared with guests at the castle. There is a soothing sound from the Braidwood Burn (fenced) just below the cottage, and there are walks down to the River Clyde through a network of paths nearby. The central location enables easy access to some wonderful countryside in the Clyde Valley Woodlands National Nature Reserve just north of Lanark, 5 miles, where there are way marked trails to explore. At the UNESCO New Lanark World Heritage Centre on the magnificent Falls of Clyde, you can discover how life was lived at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. Enjoy a day in Glasgow which is very easy by train from Carluke. Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant ¾ mile.
Orchard Cottage at Braidwood Castle can be booked together with Braidwood Castle to accommodate up to 7 guests.
