Exploring the area

The cottages are situated in extensive garden and woodlands grounds which guests are welcome to walk in. You can access the Campsie hills direct from the woods for more extensive walks from the doorstep. The towpath on the Forth & Clyde canal is only 2 miles away which is ideal for cycle day-trips and connects with the Falkirk Wheel and the Kelpies. For day-trips it is a half-hour drive to the Trossachs and Loch Lomond and the cities of Glasgow Edinburgh and Stirling are all within very easy reach. The station is around 10 minutes away and trains every half-hour run to Glasgow (in 20 mins) and Edinburgh (in 30 mins)

Getting to us

Upper Woodburn is 20 minutes’ drive north of Glasgow at the foot of the Campsie Hills.

There is a bus stop at the end of the drive on the half-hourly 89 bus route from Buchanan Street Bus station in Central Glasgow. Croy station on the Edinburgh-Glasgow train line is a 15 minute taxi ride away.

On the one hand Rhododenron ponticum is a highly invasive species that is a particular menace to Scotland’s rare habitats, particularly the west coast’s Atlantic oak woodlands.

An Ocean of Bluebells

10th May 2021 The bluebells are looking absolutely astounding this week. The ground is so densely covered with them we had to walk really carefully to get these photos. The wood sorrel is also flowering – also called the Alleluia flower because it flowers between Easter and Pentecost…. which I suppose is about this timeContinue reading “An Ocean of Bluebells”
