There's a satellite Freeview TV with a DVD player and a large selection of movies. Built almost entirely of locally sourced timber and to the most exacting eco-standards, the cabin is a warm and cosy long- or short-break destination for any time of year. Although ideal as a quiet, contemplative country retreat, if it's an activity-oriented holiday you'd like then there's loads to do around here from walking to cycling and from golf to fishing, and the history, arts and culture of the festival city of Edinburgh is within very easy reach by bus or train from either of the nearby villages..

Interaction with guestsWhen you arrive at Belstane, you’ll see the cabin as soon as you come into our yard so please feel free to drive straight up, the cabin will be open and ready for you, the keys will be on the table. If we see you arriving we’ll introduce ourselves or we’ll nip up as soon as we can to see that everything is to your satisfaction. One of the attractions of Belstane Log Cabin is its seclusion and we hope that you’ll enjoy your privacy sp we’ll leave you pretty-much to yourselves during your stay. However, there’s almost always somebody on hand down at the cottage so if there’s anything at all that needs our attention please don’t hesitate to ask.

Brilliant, absolutely brilliant.
This was our first time staying at Belstane Log Cabins and it will not be the last. everything about our stay here was perfect and we would change a thing. Dave and Fi were fantastic hosts and were more than accommodating! they didn't bother you but were always there if you needed them (what more could you ask for!?). The cleanliness of the cabins was impeccable. We also have a nice bouquet of flowers and bottle of wine upon our arrival which was lovely. The beds we nice and comfortable and the shower was really good. The morning walks around the surrounding fields was convenient and peaceful. I was a bit hesitant about writing a review as good as this, as I didn't want it to become that over booked we couldn't book up, but a 5 star review is warranted for such a beautiful place and wonderful hosts. Needless to say but we have already booked to return at Christmas time and cant wait to have another beer with Dave and Fiona (see you soon)! Neil & Leoni (& the kids and Rudy)

There’s tons to do around here, almost too many things to mention but there’s golf, country walks, fishing, sightseeing and our local zoo of which we’re all very proud.. We’ll have a folder of events and happenings in the are ready for you in the cabin

How to get there
The easiest way to find us is to turn into Leyden Road from the A70. Ours is the first sign you’ll come to about 300 meters along Leyden Road at the apex of a sharp bend. If you are using the satnav on your phone, Belstane Log Cabin will come up on Google Maps and it should take you straight here. Car or TomTom satnav, using the post code, will take you to a spot about a mile north of here. Just head south for a mile or so until you come to a sharp bend and you’ll see our sign on the right.
