Why Yvonne chose Strathaven

The place is honestly fantastic! It is a really quiet and peaceful conservation village area with its own attractions but is situated bang in the middle of central Scotland. Our Park & Ride train station at Merryton gives you the best access to the city center,. We leave a list of numbers of bars, restaurants, attractions, and more in the manual.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Left on Apr 5, 2017 for a stay in Mar 2017

My family spent 3 thoroughly enjoyable nights at West Laighnetherfield House towards the end of March 2017. The property itself is charming and eclectic. The owner has successfully accented the best historical / original features of the home while adding touches of originality, quirkiness and character. Our host Yvonne could not have been more accommodating, warm and welcoming. They embraced our family and did everything they could to facilitate our wish to host a family event at the house. (They even went over and above to ensure we had fresh flowers and that the house looked its absolute best.) All went amazingly well and we were complimented over and over again on the outstanding location. The property is very well equipped - we did face a challenge or two managing the aga / stove which we aren't too familiar with in The beds were comfortable and cosy, the bedding spotless and we felt overall very well looked after and provided for. GREAT house!

A beautiful, spacious home in which to relax

  • 5 of 5

We booked the property for a family get-together to celebrate a special birthday and anniversary together and it provided the perfect place for the event. We felt welcomed from the moment we stepped into the house where a wee dram of excellent whiskey and tablet for each guest awaited us on the kitchen table along with a card from the owner welcoming our family.

The property was clean, comfortable, warm and cosy which was appreciated due to the inclement weather experienced during our visit. The extra little touches like the beautiful flowers in the kitchen, the full fruit bowl and cupboard full of all those little things one often forgets to pack made for a very pleasant visit.

Everything within the property was of a high standard giving a feeling of comfort and luxury.

It was lovely to meet the owner too.

Absolutely amazing

  • 5 of 5

I booked this lovely property to celebrate mum's 80th Birthday. She did not want a big fuss made, just a quiet celebration with myself, sister and niece, it was such a lovely surprise to us all when we arrived at the property, it looked absolutely amazing on the website and it certainly did not disappoint, we all fell instantly in love with the place. It was so comfortable and welcoming, it met all our needs and made our stay so very special. Yvonne is so friendly, welcoming and very thoughtful, the little touches were so much appreciated. So thank you Yvonne, from the bottom of our hearts, your lovely, amazing, property made our stay so very very special. I would definately recommend this gorgeous place to family, friends and anyone that appreciates beautiful places.

The only downfall was the heating and the hot water which unfortunately kept failing. Yvonne was very helpful and friendly and did her utmost to rectify the problem.

Green Flag award winning Strathaven park

The prestigious Green Flag was administered by Keep Scotland Beautiful, an independent environmental charity that awarded this to the Edwardian public park in Strathaven for its quality and welcoming space.

Set amongst beautiful flower beds this clean, safe and secure, well-maintained park offers a boating pond with rowing boats, kayaks, two bowling greens, tennis courts, a putting green and it’s original miniature model steam railway from 1949.

A brilliant family day out, with an ornate cast iron bandstand installed in 1902.

Our beautiful park is used by the locals, holiday makers and is even celebrated every year at our gala days.

Strathaven Ales

Was started in 2005 by business friends Craig & Douglas.


This renovated riverside plant is visitor friendly, a modern 36 -barrel-capacity with its 18th century stone clad brewing kettle.

There is a shop, a visitor centre and tap/function with selected beers for sampling.

The Castle

Strathaven was granted a Royal charter by King James the second on the 23rd of April in the year 1450.

The origins of the castle are believed to have been built around 1350.

It comprised of a three-story rectangular block with a four storey round tower which remains almost complete to-day.

The wife of a past lord so greatly displeased her husband that she was walled up alive in part of the Castle wall. Nothing is recorded of her crime, yet it is said that she was blessed by a priest, given food and water then walled up forever.

When a portion of the walls fell down in the middle of the 19th century, human bones wee discovered giving credence to the story.

A visit to the castle and Strathaven’s country tea rooms afterwards is a must!

Scotlands Theme Park

Only a 15-minute journey from West Laighnetherfield M & D’s is now recognised as Scotland’s unique theme park.

M & D’s indoors is open all year round, with a glow in the dark bowling, a massive indoor complex including a gigantic soft play area, bars restaurants and lots of seasonal events.

You can also discover AMAZONIA Scotlands only indoor tropical rainforest packed with exotic animals, birds and creepy crawlies. It’s out of this world.

Trout, Sea Trout & Salmon Fishing

The little river Avon is a 5-minute walk from West Laighnetherfield and can provide excellent fishing with recorded catches of 290 in the 2008 season.

The upper section is primarily brown trout with a good fishing from March but with the chance of sea trout or even salmon later in the year.

Great Resturants

This family run business is only a 5-minute drive away and they have created a homely ambience within a country setting that allows you to enjoy great food and company in comfort.

Our guests rate the Steayban as excellent.

Falls of Clyde & New Lanark

Fantastic short walk along the Clyde from the World Heritage Site of New Lanark, passing waterfalls and a peregrine falcon watching area before the inland return route takes you through fields and woodland. The walk can be extended by following a waymarked additional route on the far side of the river.

Bothwell Castle

Explore a castle hotly fought over during the Wars of Independence with England. Bothwell Castle, built on a grand scale in the late 1200s, frequently passed back and forth between English and Scottish hands.

Such hostility, in particular, Edward I’s great siege of 1301 – meant the castle was never completed to its original plan. Yet, with its imposing donjon, it’s one of Scotland’s most impressive medieval strongholds standing today.

James Hamilton Heritage Park

James Hamilton Heritage Park covers 32 acres in East Kilbride and includes a 16-acre loch with a water sports centre.

James Hamilton Heritage Park is a 4 Star Visit Scotland accredited activity centre. The park features a 16acre loch which provides beautiful and tranquil surroundings for our exciting range of water sports, from canoeing to windsurfing. The distance around the loch perimeter path is 1.2 kilometres (3/4 of a mile).

james hamilton



Chatelherault Country Park is a Five Star Visitor Attraction that was once described as a ‘Jewel in the Landscape’. Built in 1732 as a Hunting Lodge and Summer House for the Dukes of Hamilton.

The restored buildings now house a Visitor Centre; the West Lodge comprising of the Banqueting Hall and Duke and Duchess Apartments; Exhibition Gallery and Displays; Gift Shop and Café. Outside, visitors can explore 10 miles of walks along the scenic River Avon and through ancient woodland.

Clyde Valley National Tourist Route
