    "We had a great week at Eilean Donan. We were met by Mike on arrival & received a great welcome. Mike explained everything to us & was always there if you wanted to know anything. The welcome basket was a nice extra. The cottage is very well located for exploring the area & if we visit the area again we will definitely use this cottage again. It was spotless & had everything you could possibly want."

    "Eilean Donan provides all the facilities you need to feel at home and is a good base for exploring the South East of Scotland. Park and Ride Bus and Tram links to Edinburgh and Livingston Designer Outlet are only a short drive away. We will definitely be going back!"

    "We very much enjoyed our stay. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend this cottage. Will be going back again."

    "Lovely cottage in the grounds of the owners property. The property was spotlessly clean and we couldn't find fault with anything. The owners were very helpful and the welcome basket was a nice touch. If we revisit the area we will definitely book again."

    "Third time at Eilean Donan cottage & will be back! Spotless, warm & so well equipped. Best holiday cottage we’ve had, can’t recommend it enough.Denise & Mike are wonderful hosts, welcoming & always at hand if needed 😄😄😄"

    "We had an excellent weeks holiday at this very spacious bungalow. We were met by the owners on arrival, who were very welcoming and informative. The bungalow is perfectly positioned for getting into Edinburgh, with a very good Park and Ride just a few miles away and also for visiting the local areas. We have stayed in several very nice self-catering holiday homes in recent years but this property was the most well equipped and cleanest by far. All that you could wish for and more. We will definitely recommend to friends and hope to return ourselves in the future."

    "Spacious, clean and well equipped in a good quiet location for us. Sadly there was a deep seated stale cigarette smell throughout the house, especially in one of the bedrooms and as non-smokers travelling with a baby we found it so unpleasant we went home before the end of our holiday."
    Judith ‐ 11 Sep 2019
    "Very comfortable stay, spotlessly clean family friendly and very quiet despite proximity to a71 and handy for links to Glasgow and Edinburgh. Owner was friendly and the bungalow was well equipped. Welcome hamper of snacks was a nice touch"
    Anne ‐ 23 Jun 2019
    "A delightful property, very well equipped and well cared for by the owners. We had everything we needed. Within reach of Edinburgh as park and ride is close by, but there are also other attractions within 30 minutes drive. We would definitely recommend this property."
    Sophie ‐ 15 Jun 2019
    "The cottage was excellent - cosy, comfortable and very well appointed. It was very quiet despite being near the A71 and had everything you could need. I would certainly return."
    Andy ‐ 5 Jun 2019

    "It’s sas perfect"
    Dennis ‐ 18 Apr 2019
    "We had a really comfortable stay at the cottage. The beds were excellent and the kitchen was well equipped. It's brilliant to have a walk in shower, too. There was a small Tesco Express close by in the centre of East Calder and a huge shopping centre at Livingston with a massive Asda and big Morrisons. It was easy to find the Park and Ride at Hermiston a 15 minute drive away from the cottage and it only took half an hour to get to the centre of Edinburgh. The bus service there was brilliant and we used an all day travel ticket to take us across town visiting the mumerous attractions. We also enjoyed exploring the castles at Linlithgow, Blackness and Stirling. There is plehty to eee and do. You won't be bored."

    "It is amazing place. Very close to Edinburgh. We enjoyed our holiday there and definitely will come back."
    Beth ‐ 27 Nov 2018
    "This is the second year we have stayed at the cottage and once again we have thoroughly enjoyed the cottage, we enjoy the amenities around the area and chilling at night in the cottage which is lovely and quiet. The owners are amazing and very accommodating and go out of their way to ensure our stay is always very enjoyable. The cottage is a bungalow and is adapted in the bathroom to accommodate persons who have mobility issues, this is such a bonus for us as we have persons in our group who do benefit greatly from this and I would definitely recommended the cottage should anyone require this for themselves. Overall the cottage for us is a great find and we are already planning our third visit as it really does have a home from home feeling whereby; all of us instantly feel at ease, chilled and able to relax and we are all looking forward very much to our next visit, we would like to thank the owners for their very welcoming hospitality."
    Richard ‐ 8 Nov 2018
    "This is a beautiful cottage. Spotlessly clean, very peaceful and homely. The cottage is so near Edinburgh, however you feel as if you are in the middle of the country and miles away from any large city. Therefore you have the best of both worlds as you can visit wonderful Edinburgh very quickly, but enjoy the peacefulness of the cottage, which has the convenience of many supermarkets nearby. We have never been to such a well equipped cottage, home from home. Mike met us on arrival and kindly had the heating on. We were left a lovely welcome hamper which we greatly enjoyed. It was such a very thoughtful gesture and very much appreciated."
