News from Carse Cottage…


We welcome you to our holiday cottage.

We are a family run business offering self catering accommodation with a home from home feel.
We are situated in a secluded, rural location yet close to local amenities. Carse cottage is accessed along a lane which forms part of an old drovers road. The cottage is set in an acre of garden grounds with natural burns, vegetable plot and wildlife area. Beyond the enclosed gardens there are fields containing sheep, lambs, cows and calves, with captivating views of distant hills and the Scottish coastline.

A warm welcome await you at Carse cottage

A warm welcome awaits you.

The living/kitchen area is open plan with lots of space, comfy sofas and oak flooring.
You can enjoy the views from a sofa, or sit outside and watch the social comings and goings of our hens and ducks.  New to the brood are 2 Pygmy goats, Hamish & George, they are cheeky and offer endless entertainment. We welcome involvement in poultry and goat care and encourage you to feed our hens and ducks and collect eggs and we have to say Hamish & George do love a cracker! You can actively participate in cleaning them out too (but that may not be as attractive an activity.) Bags of fresh chicken and goat manure can be taken home on request!
We have made every effort to equip the cottage to accommodate visitors by ensuring it is comfortable and practical and the ideal place to relax and enjoy your holiday. If our website does not give you all the information you need to make your holiday choice please contact us, we would love to talk to you.
