About Carol Kilpatrick
Very handsome couple, married for 45 years! Two grown up sons, two lovely daughters in law and five school age grandchildren.
Why Carol Kilpatrick chose West Linton
America Cottage is called such because it is on the West side of the water...well that is what we tell people although we are still unsure. Colin's parents had the bungalow built for somebody to help them in the grounds and the garden.
What makes this bungalow unique
We lived in America Cottage when we first got married, with Colin's parents living in the 'big house'. America Cottage is light and sunny, with oodles of space and just a nice place to be. When the sun shines it is very lovely to sit out on the porch and sunbathe without anybody seeing you. The real charm of America Cottage is it is close to Edinburgh, on a bus route (however, a car is necessary), and withinone mile of the Village of West Linton which has huge attractiveness, loads of sops, everything yu could wish for without any of the hassle. The ville communityis a very friendly one and in June there is a ten day Festival called the Whipman Play which celebrates the life of the village and surrounding area by Riding of the Marches. Super fun for the children and adults alike (usually held during first week of June). Many of our visitors over the years have moved to the area or not far away.
