The 3, 4 and 5 Star accolades awarded by the Scottish Tourist Board contribute to your peace of mind that we bring you some of the best in Scottish self-catering accommodation. Many of our guests return year after year. Some have sampled each of our properties and can't make up their minds which property they like best. Others have definite loyalties.
You may now choose to go straight to any of our 4 properties to view good-sized photos of each individual exterior and interior. We can also take you on a tour through each house, room by room, via a Gallery of over 30 good-sized photos per property. Please do look for this camera icon which has links on these 4 individually named Cottage Pages to their own personalised "tour".
Sometimes layout can be the deciding factor. So for those of you curious to know where the living-room is in relation to the bedrooms or where the kitchen or bathrooms are, study the floor plan at the base of each individual cottage page . The plan also indicates the overall size of the property.
For all this, please click directly on the properties below:

Close to, but set back from the road (no farm gates to open) this
detached property has a real farm feel to its situation. Two storeys.
Sleeps up to 6. . Appearing deceptively small from the outside,
inside it's amazingly spacious with its lofty ceilings and impressive
interior. Open plan kitchen and living area allows
the chefs in your party to socialise with the rest of your group, whilst
preparing the grub. Children
can enjoy their own daytime space in the upstairs bedroom which now
has a second T.V. Detachable stairgate for the base of the stairs only.
Two bathrooms downstairs and a toilet / washroom upstairs. Pets welcome.
There is a small garden at the front: by closing the gates, at the
to the property, it becomes totally enclosed for children and dogs.
This is the property which lends itself best to an extra one or two
sleeping persons in addition to the advertised 6. Steading Cottage
also been singled out by the Tourist Board as particularly wheelchair
friendly. It has a wheel-in shower on the ground floor and has no steps.
of the road from all the farm activities,
this accommodation has a lovely traditional feel to it. Two storeys,
not detached. Sleeps up to 6. The wing is not a "cottage" but
so many of our past guests call it a cottage because of its comfortable
feel that we now think of it in this way ourselves! Of the trio
has the best garden but the smallest kitchen and only one bathroom
which is upstairs. The downstairs dining / living-room is a bit
on the small side but the third upstairs bedroom offers the
flexibility of converting into an instantly very attractive second
living room provided the bed is made! Guests love the versatility
of having a second living area which allows older children, or individual
members within a group, their own space to relax or perhaps watch
a T.V. programme on a different channel from that being watched downstairs.
On either side of the Wing are friendly neighbours. Your hosts live
at one end. At the far end of the farmhouse live Eve and Bill, who
have rented their accommodation from us for over 30 years! They have
Scottish Deerhound dogs. Holidaymakers' pets welcome. For the cost-conscious,
this is the least expensive of the 4 properties.
Our other website, launched in late September 2007, www.fivestarholidaycottage.co.uk showcases Orlege much better! That website began life exclusive to Orlege, though our new House-on-the-Hil, 5 STAR Craigengar Lodge has now been added. However before you click on to this link above, you may want to click on the link below for a more concise summary of what Orlege offers. Where the new fivestar website scores over this more mature old-style website is in the quantity and quality of images and the more contemporary feel it has to reflect the style of our 5 STAR properties!

Sleeps 12 + 4. Located in the field next to our former holiday cottage, Midcrosswood, which is now lived in by our son, the old Midcrosswood can only be viewed from the upstairs balcony of Craigengar.
Very occasionally, ( but unlikely in peak season weeks ) if all the other properties have been booked, or if your dates "fit" with other bookings, Craigengar may be let to smaller parties at a reduced rental.
You may still see this image of Midcrosswood on some holiday cottage listing sites. Unfortunately this very popular one storey cottage is no longer available for letting as our son has exclusive use!
Instead, please choose and enjoy one of our others!
If you haven't already visited our More Information page, it would be worth taking a look at this link-page to see the range of facilities and equipment we offer in each property. Everything from washing-up liquid to a wok.... dishwasher to duster.
