Set in the hamlet of Loanstone and enjoying a rural setting with magnificent views of the Pentland Hills this quaint and historic cottage is only 12 miles from Edinburgh City Centre. Historically the cottage was the Howgate Carriers Cottage for the old drove road linking the Scottish Borders to Edinburgh. A plaque on the wall celebrates the carrier’s birth. Entry to this versatile property is from the hallway, with two large cupboards, which gives access to the lounge, family bathroom and three double bedrooms. The Lounge has a feature fireplace with a multi fuel stove which has a back boiler and provides hot water for the central heating.
