Our home

The original farmhouse is over 200 years old and is now part of a steadings conversion. It has been extended and fully renovated to a very high standard and is a light, airy and cosy home.
It is in a superb central location, close to 3 stations which can take you to Glasgow in 11 minutes or Edinburgh in 35. By car Glasgow is 15 miles, Edinburgh 30 miles, Stirling 14 miles and Perth 39 miles.
We love cooking so our large kitchen has lots of appliances ( e.g. food mixer, bean to cup coffee machine, vitamix, bread machine....), and spices, cook books etc.

The garden is large with lots of plants, herbs, 2 seating areas, 2 barbecues, and a plancha, We have wifi, broadband, and Sky TV .

Who we are

  1. We are very experienced home exchangers (25 years +) and have a lot of information available to make your stay more enjoyable and tailored to your interests. We retired in 2014, Paul was working as an organisational development manager, Muriel as a clinician at the local children's hospital. We're still doing some work but it's flexible so we have more time for traveling.

    We have 2 sons who live with their families in Stirling and near Edinburgh so non simultaneous exchanges are possible and we can spend more time with our grandchildren, which is always fun. It also means we can leave the car for you in Edinburgh or Glasgow if you're arriving there. Sometimes we travel with them so a 2 property exchange can sometimes be offered.

    We're also interested in exchanges to the UK, for long weekends or longer

    We reply to all requests and look forward to hearing from you, surprise us .....

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our house is quiet and peaceful with a wonderful garden with 3 seating areas, one of which is next to a duckpond. We love cooking and have a plancha, ceramic grill and BBQ in the garden which is south facing, so you can enjoy the sun.
It's in a rural location but close to Cumbernauld which is well connected with motorways to all the main cities and good transport links.
