About the Property

No.1/2 Dialknowe Holiday Cottage in Scotland’s highest village may have a strange title for an address.  It all becomes clear when you spot the second staircase and realise that once upon a time, this was in fact two cottages. We joined them together to make the ideal space for families, couples, friends and even work colleagues to enjoy cosy and comfortable surroundings here in the highest village in Scotland.

This charming and attractive cottage is a little bigger than it looks and has a few touches of quirkiness that can’t help but make you smile. A living room at the front provides the ideal place to unwind after a day of whatever, and the kitchen has everything you would need to enjoy your stay when preparing meals and snacks. There are three bedrooms spread over the cottage including a king size room on the ground floor, a twin room, then along in what would have been the old number one Dialknowe, a double room up the second staircase. The bathroom with a modern suite and over bath shower completes the property. Not far from the cottage in the village is the local pub where you’re sure to be welcomed. Admittedly Wanlockhead isn’t the hotspot for nightlife, that’s the whole appeal.

There are a few larger towns and villages nearby however that are reachable within a few minutes by taxi or designated driver. Just 8 miles from the junction of Abington Services on the M74 Motorway, the location of Wanlockhead is surprisingly more central than you would think. Try staying a few more days and taking day trips to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Stirling, Loch Lomond or over to the beach at Ayr in the west. All are reachable within 60-90 minutes.

The house is available from 3pm on the day of arrival. It is the Hirers’ responsibility to inform the Owner of an estimated time of arrival, in advance of their stay. Departure time is 10am on the day of departure. Due to the time constraints for preparing the house prior to new arrivals late departures may result in additional charges.


The hirer is responsible for the security of the premises, all doors and windows must be secured and locked at night and when the house is unattended.

The person held to be responsible for the hiring party will be the person who made the booking and paid the booking deposit. The Hirer undertakes to relieve the Owner from any liability for damage or injury, however caused, by any member of his party.

The Hirer is responsible for the condition of the property and the behaviour of the occupants during the rental period.

The Hirer shall undertake to prevent any member of his / her party from causing a nuisance or disturbance to other residents, neighbouring occupiers, or livestock. Additionally, due to the quiet nature of the village the Hirer must ensure that outdoor noise is kept to a minimum after 1030PM.


Smoking is not permitted inside the house. Smoking in the house will set off the fire alarm and will result in the loss of your good housekeeping deposit.


The use of holiday accommodation and any facilities is entirely at the guests own risk and no liability is accepted for any death, sickness, or injury to any guest or for the loss, theft, or damage to any guest property, including vehicles, however sustained or caused. It is the responsibility of the guest to ensure that their belongings are always secure.


Children must always be supervised by an adult. The house and garden have not been child-proofed in any way and child safety remains the sole responsibility of parents/carers throughout the rental period.


The Owners have taken every care to ensure the accuracy of property descriptions on their website and all information is provided in good faith and is believed to be correct. We cannot accept liability for a breakdown of any facility at the holiday property which is beyond our reasonable control (e.g., breakdown of electrical equipment, power cut, problem with plumbing etc.).


Once guests return home it is difficult to investigate complaints of any nature. Any such matters should be brought to the attention of the Owners immediately and every effort will be made to rectify difficulties. Regrettably, the Owners are unable to accept claims once a rental period has been completed.
