About the property

Craigs Lodges


The rates, availability and secure payment page are most up to date there. Craigs Lodges provide the perfect location for your self catering holiday in Scotland. The peaceful, scenic setting is complimented by providing incredibly quick access to Edinburgh (20 minutes by train), Glasgow and Stirling (both 30 minutes by train) yet Craigs Lodges is close to much of Scotland's finest scenery.

You can relax in the grounds and enjoy a multitude of sports nearby or experience the rich variety of cultural activities available in Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Linlthgow Golf course and the Union Canal are both adjacent to the lodge park and mountain bikes are available to hire when pre booked. Without travelling anywhere you can vist the birth place of Mary, Queen of Scots and the magnificent home to all of the Stewart Kings; Linlithgow Palace in the centre of the town. Beecraigs Country Park at the edge of Linlithgow offers many wonderful walks and childrens' play areas whilst Bowden Springs, one of Scotlands most picturesque Trout fisheries is half a mile away.

About Ian Georgeson

Ian and Solly Georgeson love living in the countryside and enjoy most outdoor activities from playing tennis to mountain climbing and cycling. We are proud of Craigs Lodges and take great pleasure in seeing how many guests thoroughly enjoy visiting this beautiful part of Scotland.

Ian Georgeson purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Ian Georgeson chose West Lothian

Linlithgow is an ideal position in Scotland to visit most of our main attractions, from Edinburgh Castle or Stirling Castle to the transformed modern city of Glasgow. Craigs Lodges is in a beautiful private wooded hillside setting and allows easy day trips to the wonderfully scenic areas of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs.

What makes this cottage unique

Craigs Lodges feel as if you are comfortably relaxing in the middle of the countryside with beautiful views yet our road and rail connections allow easy access to Edinburgh, Glasgow and Stirling or the the magnificent mountain scenery in the Trossachs.

One of the best you could find

  • 5 of 5

Spent a weekend at one of the lodges with my family. It was a fantastic experience. Lodges located in the middle of woods with beautiful scenes surrounding the site. Lodges are very well kept. To be perfectly honest, we never expected such modern and comfy facilities for what we paid. It very well worth what we paid.

Would highly recommend to anyone visiting the Lothians.

Thanks again to Craigs Lodges.

vor einigen Jahren vielleicht schöner gewesen

  • 2 of 5

Wir waren zwei Wochen in Craigs Lodges und hatten die Traditional Lodge gebucht.

Als wir ankamen, haben wir kurz die Lodge gezeigt bekommen. Leider wurde uns ein schöner Ausblick versprochen, aber alles vor dem Balkon war zugewachsen. Das hat uns auch nicht weiter gestört, da wir selten auf dem Balkon waren.

Aber die Lodge befand sich im allgemeinen in einem unreinen Zustand. Die Mikrowelle war noch voll Soßenspritzer, der Kühlschrank dreckig und überall in der Lodge war auf dem Boden Dreck. Der Tisch und die Stühle haben geklebt, vermutlich wurde mit einem Tuch alles mal abgewischt.

Auf dem Gelände wurde nur das nötigste an Pflegearbeiten gemacht. Vor 10 Jahren sah es dort bestimmt besser aus. Wir waren zwar tagsüber selten in der Lodge oder auf dem Gelände, aber wir hätten mehr erwartet.
