We had a fabulous time.. Fiona was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The cottage was very well equipped and spotlessly clean. Brill.

Fiona made us feel so welcome with simple little touches, like the couple of Xmas presents for us on arrival.. The cottage has everything you could possibly need by way of facilities. The pub two doors down is quiet and very welcoming. They welcomed our two well behaved Jack Russell terriers. The cottage is well located to get to either Glasgow or Edinburgh and is a great base to explore both. Although you feel quite remote, we were surprised that there were over 300 restaurants on Just Eat, should we have wanted to order any sort of cuisine! But the kitchen is superbly equiped and we had our evening meals in. Carluke and Lanark are only 15 minutes away, both have good supermarkets to cater for every taste. The bed is very comfy and the bed linen is fresh and clean. The garden is spacious and I am sure would be lovely to sit out in when it is a bit warmer. The central heating is easy to operate and the cottage is well insulated, so we were like toast in the evenings. The shower is easy to use and plenty of hot water. This was a lovely little holiday for me and my partner and we will definitely be back, if available, in the future.

We found ourselves needing accommodation for a couple of weeks due to an emergency home repair, Skye Blue was absolutely perfect, a proper home from home with everything we needed. I would not hesitate to recommend the cottage, the icing on the cake was the way Fiona settled us in then made us feel like the cottage was our private space. A bad situation was made bearable thanks to Fiona and Skye Blue
Mrs Mcgeachie, September 2017

Very comfortable and well equipped cottage in lovely location.. .....two doors down from the equally great little pub. Owner was very obliging and gave us lots of tips for exploring and walking. Highly recommended.

An absolutely beautiful cottage in a fantastic location with a lovely, kind and helpful owner. Fiona went out of her way to help me set up the cottage to best accommodate my two dogs. I had to leave early because one of my dogs was very poorly but even then Fiona wanted to know what she could do to help as she knew I was travelling alone. Cannot recommend it highly enough and will definitely rebook.
Mrs Sarvent, March 2017

Thank you Fiona for a lovely stay. All the little essentials were taken care of, down to bags of treats for the dogs, a dog towel, dog bed, and bowls. Fiona even remembered to put in a baby gate that we had asked for when we first booked. Cottage itself is lovely, comfiest bed we have ever slept in, very well equipped and in a fantastic location very close to a friendly pub, quiet area with lovely scenery and great for walking the dogs. Also has a secure garden. Fiona was very helpful, taking care to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we could want. Would recommend visiting New Lanark. Look forward to returning.
Mr Pritchard, January 2017

Cottage was fabulous, every comfort had been catered for.. The owner's welcome and information on the surrounding area and things to do was wonderful. The bed was extremely comfortable. Our dog was catered for too with toys, treats and towels and he loved the long enclosed garden. We loved the location and the surrounding scenery and the property was close to many attractions. All in all a 5 star experience.

Just back from a great holiday in this fabulous cottage. We knew from first speaking to Fiona on the telephone that this was going to be excellent. The cottage was comfortable, warm and clean with everything catered for to enjoy a superb holiday. The bed was super comfy too. Fiona had even left out things for our dog, bed if required, dishes, toys and treats, who could ask for more. Our dog loved the enclosed long garden because he could at last have a run, our own garden being a bit small for him. The Pub two doors up from the cottage serves excellent meals and the owners and staff there are super friendly. The scenery and places to visit within an hour of the cottage are superb. Fiona gave us loads of information on places to go and the best routes to find them, but there were also lots of leaflets in the cottage. We wouldn't hesitate in booking this cottage again in the future, we felt at home and relaxed there.

Arrived late, owner (Fiona) went out of way to arrange collection of key locally then came to show us around on arrival @ 21.30. Very welcoming. Went beyond to sort out a personal problem that occurred while we were there. Cottage much larger than the photos show, just like the tardis. Located in a small rural village, very friendly people, Pub just 2 doors away, shop within easy reach. Perfect base to tour the area Thank you for wonderful stay, would recomend a visit

Warm welcome by Fiona owner of the cottage who has excellent local knowledge of village and surrounding area. Decorated to a high standard and very clean. Enclosed garden with seating. Brilliant for my black labrador - no worries of him escaping. Lovely local country walks. Village pub serves good food at weekends - Frank and Jan excellent landlords. All in all a very pleasant and relaxing cottage. Loved everything about it and would recommend it to anyone wishing to visit the Scottish Borders. I shall hopefully stay again soon.

This is a lovely cottage, tastefully decorated and very comfortably furnished. The owner makes you feel welcome and makes sure that everything will be OK for you. The village is peaceful and accessible to Glasgow and Edinburgh, and a trip to New Lanark Mill is worth the time. This has to be one of the best cottages we have stayed in and would recommend to family and anyone looking for somewhere quiet to unwind.

The cottage was beautiful; perfect in every way. Braehead is a great area for sightseeing, near Edinburgh and lots of lovely places to see. Two doors from the cottage is a pub, which serves terrific food (it only serves food Friday, Saturday and Sunday). Although there are other places close by. We had a great holiday and although it was mid October the weather was kind to us. The cottage was lovely and warm at night. A place to return to.

Welcomed by Fiona the owner who gave detailed information about this lovely cottage and had kindly offered to get milk for arrival. Property is well equipped with large comfortable rooms and excellent shower, large enclosed garden with table and chairs, I ate outside on 3 occasions in a week. Weather was great. Pub 2 doors down does great meals on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings and a very welcoming pub during the week, I also had a great steak and chips etc with all trimmings to take away. Great area for walks try Winnyknowe woodland within a mile of braehead, deer, birds flora etc. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and recommend to anyone looking for a quiet holiday with access to Edinburgh and Glasgow and Central Scotland

Stayed here for 4 nights with my husband and dog. The owner was very pleasant and met us at the cottage and explained everything and gave us information about happenings in the area. We found the cottage to be well decorated, it looks new, well stocked with equipment in the kitchen which all worked well. All was comfy and pleasant. All rooms are downstairs except the actual bedroom. This was comfy and there were plenty of towels and pillows provided. The bathroom is downstairs and was new and clean with a nice big shower. Place very dog friendly, with large lawned back yard and the owner provided dog bowls, towel, poo bags and some biscuits. Lovely to see. The only disappointment was that the cottage is on the main road of the village, so although the village is small and quiet all traffic goes past your front door. I wish this was advertised for all cottages, because if you are not used to being so close to the road it can be off putting. There is also no parking, we parked across the road on a side street which although safe, isn't perfect. There is no shop in the village but the pub is 2 doors down and provides a good feed on Friday - Sundays. If not you need to drive about 5 miles to Forth. There is no wifi although we bought 5 days use of BT which worked ok at most times. Phone coverage is also a bit iffy.

We will definately be back in the summer
