This comfortable property is a detached barn conversion that has been lovingly renovated and sleeps up to four people.

This property has been converted to a very high standard and offers a wonderful abode for a family holiday. The sitting room has a wood-burner that gives the entire house a warm, welcoming feel, and is on an open-plan layout with the dining room. There is a well-equipped fitted kitchen and a ground floor bathroom and two bedrooms, one with an en-suite and one twin room.

Outside there is a small patio area with seating and guests have shared use of the owner’s paddock. There is a shop and public house two and a half miles away. There are so many attractions and activities around this location and this property makes a great base to see all that this lovely area has to offer.


Having booked this cottage with Sykes (excellent company to deal with) we had not been to this part of Scotland before. The initial impression on entering the cottage was quite good, but as the week went on we discovered some things were getting "tired". The two checked sofas in the lounge have seen better days. The two single beds in the downstairs bedroom have springs coming through on the mattress. The log burner was quite good. The kitchen was clean, including the cooker, but again a lot of the equipment is getting tired, the cupboard coatings are beginning to peel away. The hot water from the kitchen tap runs really slow, so takes an age to fill the sink. I have based my asumptions on being here for a week and reading some of the earlier reviews.

This is a superb barn conversion in a lovely location, very tastefully furnished and well equipped in the modern and roomy kitchen. Large sitting room, well furnished with comfortable sofas and modern dining suite. Beautiful wood flooring and bedrooms carpeted and comfortable. The owners are charming and helpful.

An excellent cottage which served as a great base to explore the local area and Glasgow. Felt like home from home. Very comfortable and well equipped.
Mr Budding

Lovely, clean and comfortable cottage.
Darnhay Cottage is a lovely, clean, well equiped and comfortable cottage. One of the best we have stayed in. The owners are friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a week in the cottage which is a fantastic base for touring the area. It is a peaceful location to return to. We would recommend the cottage to friends and family.
