Glenlockhart Cottage is a unique historic holiday cottage in Edinburgh, tucked away at the end of a private lane in a leafy conservation area. This 160 year-old cottage, once home to the gardener for Glenlockhart Estate, has been furnished to exceptional standards of luxury and comfort, with every detail considered to make it a very special place

Secluded and peaceful, with a large tree-lined garden, the cottage sits on the edge of Craiglockhart Hills nature reserve - 35 acres of open space with magnificent views across the city - so you can enjoy fresh air, relax and rejuvenate

The city centre is also within easy reach - the cottage is only 2.5 miles from Edinburgh Castle and offers a sanctuary in which to unwind after a day's sightseeing. Enjoy the best of both worlds for your holiday in Scotland, the perfect balance between country living and the vibrant buzz of the city - wake to the sound of birdsong rather than city traffic

A UNESCO World Heritage city, Edinburgh’s beauty is breath-taking - but there’s much more to discover. From major galleries and museums to theatre, comedy and music, there are discoveries to be made around every corner, and a year-long calendar of exciting festivals and events to suit all tastes and ages. Our shopping ranges from the world’s best luxury names to local independent talent. Our food, be it Michelin-starred or street-food markets, is mouth-wateringly delicious

Edinburgh is recognised as one of the most vibrant, beautiful and interesting cities in the world. From the rich - sometimes hidden - history that surrounds your every step, to the wealth of lush, green spaces, Edinburgh continually surprises, delights and inspires

Perfect for couples, friends and families, Glenlockhart Cottage is available for short breaks and longer stays and sleeps four in blissful comfort

Choose Glenlockhart Cottage for your staycation and find out why there’s nowhere in the world quite like Scotland’s capital...
