About Cass Delaney
Cass is from Edinburgh, and Charlie from Duns in the Scottish Borders. We live in Ampherlaw Farmhouse with our son, Lachlan and our horses, dogs, cat and chickens!
Cass Delaney purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why Cass Delaney chose South Lanarkshire
Before buying Ampherlaw Farmhouse in 2004 we lived just three miles away. We often rode past the house and fell in love with its crow stepped gables and beautiful stonework. Although it was in desperate need of attention, we saw the beauty that lay beneath. We were very lucky to be riding past one day as the For Sale sign was being erected. The rest is history!! We spent the next six years restoring it to its former glory, and at the same time extended into two of the adjoining barns. It is these barns that form the cottage that we offer for self catering holidays.
What makes this Cottage unique
Ampherlaw is a little hidden gem in south Lanarkshire. The beautiful views on a fine day make you think you're living in paradise. Although it has a lovely rural position, it is only a 35 minute drive to Edinburgh. We love staying here as we have horses, dogs, cats and chickens and we love the freedom the place offers.

Walking or driving in the area is full of country views and sounds. Birds singing and lambs telling their mommies how happy they are. The weather was exceptional and we left tanned. We will gladly do this again and will recommend it to others for a wonderful time for R and R. Scottish people are so friendly. This holiday let is worth all five stars!
