Williamscraig Holiday Cottages is family run and offers three stylish holiday cottages that can each accommodate up to eight guests. The cottages are located close to the historic town of Linlithgow and have been converted from agricultural buildings to provide comfortable holiday accommodation of a high standard (two cottages, Rose and Appletree Cottages, have hot tubs).
Located next to Linlithgow Golf Course, the cottages are ideal for golfers and fishermen alike with two lochs for fishing nearby. For walkers, there are numerous picturesque walks in and around the surrounding area, including a path that leads directly to Cairnpapple Hills and Cockleroy where historic forts and henges once stood many years ago. Cyclists too will not be disappointed with superb mountain bike trails and for wildlife enthusiasts, the area offers excellent spotting opportunities with more than eighty types of our feathered friends along.
The historic town of Linlithgow is just one and a half miles away and provides visitors with plenty to see and do, along with a good selection of eating establishments and shops. Linlithgow is well placed for visiting the famous Scottish capital of Edinburgh (only seventeen miles away) where you can take an open top bus tour to see the city's attractions and of course the famous Edinburgh Castle which is a must to visit! The Vibrant City of Glasgow with much to offer visitors is also within easy reach and just forty minutes from Linlithgow. For those happy to travel a little further afield, St Andrews is an hour and a half away by car and Stirling is much closer.
Alternatively, stay more locally and enjoy attractions including Blackness Castle, where Hamlet was filmed; The House of Binns; Canal Cruise; Birkhill Clay Mine; Bo'ness Motor Museum; Almond Valley Heritage Centre; Scottish Railway Preservation Society; Kinneil Museum and Roman Fortlet; Go Ape; Hopetoun House and The Forth Bridges to name just a few. There are beautiful beaches to see, most notably at Elie, Aberdour, Gullane and Seacliff. If you are prepared to put in the miles then Linlithgow is an excellent central base for exploring Scotland's many attractions.
