Eastside Cottages

Eastside consists of the most stylish and unique cottages that are situated off the beaten track on the owner’s farm. Hidden up a quiet glen in the Pentland hills, yet just a 10 mile drive from central Edinburgh.

Being so near to Edinburgh brings you the very best of both Scottish town & country all year round. The changing seasons means that Eastside cottages are idyllic at any time of year, with snow-capped winter hills giving way to the lush greens of spring and summer, and the purple heather of early Autumn.


Driving through the gates and along the winding road, passing many sheep along the way to get to ‘The Woodshed’ (one of Eastside cottages – which sleeps two), you quickly get the feeling of farm life and appreciate the remote location of your cottage. As the Woodshed, is a mile away from the farm itself you get the feeling of being able to enjoy this place all to yourself. Bliss!

The Woodshed is a luxury self-catering cottage with a modern architectural structure, complete with log fire and all of the very best comforts making your stay feel like a home-away-from-home. A delightful welcome greeted us with delicious scones, butter, jam, milk & tea set out on the table waiting for our arrival, a fantastic way to start our stay.

A clever use of space throughout with living area and kitchen and bathroom on the ground floor with a spacious bedroom set out on a mezzanine floor above. Just follow the staircase as it wraps around the stove, where you are greeted by an extremely comfy king size bed, ready for you to sink into after a day of exploring. Fall asleep in perfect comfort listening to the crackle of the stove and the wind in the trees.

There are plenty of large windows throughout the cottage, giving you plenty of opportunities to appreciate your surroundings.


Designed as a home-away-from-home, each cottage has a fully equipped kitchen, sitting room with wood burning fire, cosy bedrooms & private gardens. All cottages have stunning views of the Pentland Hills & are within walking distance from your doorstep.

The Woodshed cottage comes with all the home comforts you would expect including:


The location of Eastside Cottages means that you can fully enjoy both the city life of Edinburgh and the countryside of the Pentland Hills. One day you could be exploring the cobbled streets of city life, soaking up all of the History and culture, sampling the delights of the many cafes, restaurants, bars and shops.

Then the next day you could be hiking up the Kips taking in the breathtaking views of the Pentland Hills. Whatever you decide to do with your time, be sure that the comforts of the Eastside cottages will be the best way to end any day. Start the log fire, pour yourself a glass of your favourite tipple and kick back. Don’t worry if those muscles are aching after a day of adventures, the Swedish hot tub is literally on your doorstep, so enjoy and take in those views! Don’t be surprised if you see a friendly sheep or two wondering by too.
