South Lodge is a hidden gem located at the foot of the Pentland Hills, just 20 mins drive from Edinburgh. Relax in the comfort of this newly refurbished cottage offering superb accommodation for four with all the modern luxuries you would expect, and with access to a spectacular private lake and woodland right on your doorstep.

The space
The lodge is nestled next to The Glencorse Old Kirk which dates back to the 17th century. Scottish writer Robert Louis Stephenson famously worshiped there and indeed wrote about the Kirk and its woodland setting on a number of occasions. The Old Kirk has even featured in the world famous Outlander TV Series, providing the setting for characters Claire and Jamie to tie the knot in Season 1.

In close proximity are many fabulous walks, cycle rides and attractions in and around the Pentland Hills to be explored, and just a short drive away you will find many more places to explore including the beaches of East Lothian, City of Edinburgh and the rolling countryside of The Scottish Borders.

Where you’ll be

Milton Bridge, Scotland, United Kingdom

South Lodge is located in a wonderfully secluded location albeit with many attractions and shopping facilities nearby. It is an ideal bolt hole if you want to visit Edinburgh and stay in the nearby countryside or visit local attractions such as Rosslyn Chapel, Dalkeith Country Park and the Restoration Yard with many other attractions nearby. Being located next to the Pentland Hills you have on the hand the most wonderful walks and mountain bike trails.

Robert Louis Stevenson once write, "If my spirit returns to earth it will be found wandering through the Glencorse Woods or sitting on the old bridge at Glencorse Kirk, the finest spot on earth."
