Set high on a hillside just 10 miles from Glasgow and a 20 minute drive from Loch Lomond National Park, surrounded by silver birches and with spectacular views, the Craigmaddie Muir Roundhouse is a secluded escape for two. Sit out late into the evening in the hot tub or curl up on the sofa in front of the wood burning stove as the stars start to appear. The Roundhouse has floor to ceiling windows through which you can enjoy the stunning scenery as you escape the hustle and bustle. The Roundhouse is a small but striking building that beautifully complements its surroundings. The exterior walls are clad in Scots Larch and it has a living sedum roof which changes with the seasons. The front of the building overlooks the landscape below and features huge windows, offering180 degree views. Step inside and you’ll find a contemporary, light-filled interior with an open-plan design. Your eye is immediately drawn to the big windows and the spectacular views. There is a woodburning stove and a sofa set just in front of the central window so you can sit back and enjoy the scenery in complete comfort. The well-equipped bespoke kitchenette is located to the right of this, positioned so you can continue to enjoy the view while brewing a warming cup of tea or cooking dinner. The luxurious king size bed is located to the rear of the Roundhouse with crisp, fresh bed linen. The secluded location and the comfortable bespoke bed set you up for a great night’s sleep. There is a separate bathroom with a powerful rainwater shower and even this room enjoys a spectacular view. Outside, the deck can be reached directly from the living space, allowing easy access to the hot tub. This is perfect for a relaxing soak after long walks in the surrounding countryside. There’s also some outdoor furniture and a gas barbecue at your disposal. The Roundhouse is set on a private farming estate so you can be sure of plenty of privacy and lots of countryside to explore. It’s a wonderful destination for keen walkers and there are lots of routes which you can follow right from your front door. Just behind the Roundhouse, there’s 250 acres of moorland which is home to a thriving population of wildlife, from kestrels and sparrowhawks hunting above you to ducks swimming gracefully on the surface of the water. Any whisky lovers might want to take a trip to Glengoyne Distillery which is only five miles away and offers tours and tastings all year round. Also nearby, you’ll find even more walking opportunities in the Loch Lomond National Park or head to Glasgow for a change of pace.


  • Finglen Shepherds Hut

    • 4
    • 2 nights min stay

    Set in nine acres of wild meadows and pretty woodland, on the banks of the Finglen Burn, this remote and idyllic escape would be ideal for a romantic couple or those needing a place to recharge. It's hard to believe that Finglen is only 10 miles from Glasgow, tucked away as it is, in the heart of nature with nothing but the sound of the stream and the stars above to keep you company. The Hut has been finished to a high standard with a walk-in shower, composting toilet and outside covered verandah. The owners have managed to create something fabulous that is both rustic, wild and low-key luxurious for their guests. The space has been cleverly used and feels cosy and welcoming, and, with the addition of the covered verandah, there is a lot more spacious than you'd expect. A huge, comfy king size bed is tucked into the nook at one end with a luxurious mattress and fine bedding where you can burrow in and enjoy a deep restorative night's sleep or tuck up with a book. A kitchen and dining area with a cute table and bench seating rest in the middle with a wood burner to keep your toes toasty on chilly nights, whilst you enjoy a dram and play endless games of cards. The kitchen area is fully equipped for the cooking of feasts which you can enjoy inside or carry out to the verandah with a bottle of chilled wine and some candles for a delightfully romantic supper. The hut also boasts a separate shower room at the far end where you can blast away the night's sleep and dry yourself on a hot fluffy towel fresh off the radiator. Take your first coffee on the covered verandah whatever the weather with Indian rugs, soft seating and a chimnea to keep you warm whilst you listen to the Finglen Burn trickle by. As beautiful, if not more so, when the rain is falling and you can sit outside snug and warm with a glass of wine and nowhere to be. You'll feel a million miles away from busy modern life. A wonderful addition to the verandah is the brilliant double-ended bath tub with hot running water and bubbles. Is there a more perfect way to end the day than being nose deep in an outdoor bubble bath with a glass of chilled champagne clasped in your hand and nothing but a host of wild flowers and the sky for company? There are plenty of pubs and places to eat in Campsie Glen and the hosts are a fount of knowledge and happy to advise on any outings. You'll only be 10 miles from Glasgow so you can head over for a big night out or fill the boot with fine foods and never leave your little idyll in the woods.
