About the property

An absolutely stunning traditional country cottage, over 200 years old and with views over the site of the former Susanna mine.

Come and enjoy the year round charm of Leadhills, a small village with a lovely community atmosphere nestling in the beautiful Lowther Hills.

Leadhills is the second highest village in Scotland and is a designated ancient monument.

Alongside the neighbouring village of Wanlockhead, the area was a major lead mining centre until the demise of the industry in the 1930s.

Close to the Southern Uplands Way and only ten minutes from the M74 (junction 13 southbound and junction 14 northbound).

Ideally situated for exploring Glasgow, Edinburgh, Carlisle, Dumfries and the surrounding attractions in between.

Leadhills has a well-stocked village shop with lovely, friendly staff to provide all your needs, open daily.

lovely holiday in Leadhills, loved it !

  • 5 of 5

Epitomises what a country cottage should be and more than met our expectations!

Myself, my granddaughters and our wee dog spent a lovely relaxing week in this beautiful, spacious yet cosy and comfortable cottage.

The cottage has a very high standard of décor and finish, the Wi Fi and 50inch widescreen television was very much appreciated. The living room has big comfy sofa’s and an impressive log burning stove (with a complimentary bag of logs).

We slept well in extremely comfortable beds with lovely quality linens.

The cottage is immaculately presented and is very well appointed with everything required.

The village is really pretty with lovely walks and lovely, friendly people.

The owner was quick to respond, he was very courteous, helpful and pleasant,.

I cannot praise this cottage high enough, a big thumbs up from all of us, our wee dog also loved it!

I would highly recommend it and we will definitely be back.
