Beautiful traditional stone-built country cottage,

situated beside the Avon river in Linlithgow Bridge.




Relax in quiet seclusion at Waterside Cottage, with views of open countryside in all directions. Stroll along to the Bridge Inn for some refreshments or cross the lane and join the riverside walk which leads all the way to Muiravonside Country Park. If the bustle of a busy holiday park isn’t your idea of a holiday, the peaceful surroundings of Waterside Cottage are for you.


A short drive into Linlithgow brings you to a historic High Street with its high quality restaurants, cafes and bars. In the centre of Linlithgow stands the entrance to Linlithgow palace, the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots and many of the Stewart kings. Stroll around the loch and feed the swans, explore the Linlithgow Heritage Trail or relax in a pavement café.  From the centre of Linlithgow take a fast train into the centre of Edinburgh for the evening, or take a day trip to Glasgow or Stirling.


Waterside cottage was renovated by its architect owners in 2011 and offers you self-catering accommodation of very high quality, fully modern yet retaining its 200 years of character. The cottage has a log stove, modern kitchen and bathroom (mind your head…), 3 bedrooms (one double, one twin and one single), a south-facing courtyard garden with decking and patio furniture, and private parking for 2 cars.


Waterside Cottage the perfect relaxing base for your holiday in Scotland. Book now to avoid disappointment!
