Ferniehaugh is the perfect retreat for couples and makes a great base for explorations around central and southern Scotland. It’s a traditional, two story stone cottage dating from around 1850 and it’s Grade C listed by Historic Environment Scotland as a building of local interest.

Tiny looking from the outside but it’s amazingly spacious inside, thanks to the upstairs dormers and large kitchen extension to the rear. It was fully but sympathetically refurbished in 2014 and awarded Four Stars by Visit Scotland. It’s packed with character and charm, featuring original beamed ceilings upstairs and down, the original stone fireplace with woodburner and double glazed sash and case timber windows. There is free on-street parking and free unlimited WiFi throughout.

The owners live locally and welcome every guest personally on arrival. They are always contactable and happy to help with local information and ideas for the best things to see and do during your visit.

Biggar is the perfect base for exploring south and central Scotland. There’s a vast range of things to see and do within an hour’s radius, from mountains to beaches and from  castles and museums to designer shopping outlets and there are regular bus services to Edinburgh, Lanark and Peebles. 

"This delightful, spotlessly clean cottage is located within walking distance of all local - and plentiful - amenities. The cottage kitchen is big and modern and very well equipped. The bed is too comfortable! We loved the cottage and we'll visit again!"

"What a delightful, stylish and super comfortable home Hilary has made for her guests! We absolutely loved staying in Ferniehaugh Cottage and wish we could have stayed longer than three days. Really comfortable bed and excellent shower. The cottage was immaculately kept and a half-minute walk to the beginning of Biggar's quaint main business street with its very pleasant choices of shops, a really close-by supermarket, two museums, various places for coffee and pastries, a few really good restaurants, and a beautiful 15th century church. Hilary has thought of everything to make her guests' stay as comfortable as possible."
