“Wonderful base for our first trip to Scotland!”
Reviewed 24 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had a lovely week at Orchil View! It is comfortable and spacious, yet with a cosy feel. Leanne ensures a very warm and friendly welcome - her advice was invaluable during our stay.

Fabulous accommodation at a great price. What sets it apart is attention to detail. From a very generous welcome pack to warm comfortable beds. It even has Sky TV. Leanne who is next door has thought of everything & is on hand for help & advice. Location very good just off the M9 perfect for Edinburgh or Stirling. We found it very quiet & relaxing.

“Comfortable home away from home!”
Reviewed 22 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Great communication from owner. Arrived to find 'welcome pack' of goodies, including essentials like milk, bread, eggs, orange juice, etc. - was very appreciated.
House was spacious enough for my family of five (2 adults, 3 children - 6, 9, 12 ), yet warm and homely with many little cosy touches added.

Although house is situated in a residential area, it is a small countryside village and minimum noise disturbance was experienced from neighbourhood, nor passing traffic. The location is ideal for exploring key cities, such as Edinburgh or Glasgow by train (from Linlithgow, few minutes drive) or both latter cities and also Stirling and Saint Andrews from the easy acces to major motorways.
For rainy days, Livingston is around 15-20mins by car and one will find a huge indoor shopping mall with many shops and restaurants - alternatively one can stay at home and enjoy watching movies from the extensive DVD collection available.
To keep kids entertained, one will find Beecraigs park nearby, as well as the historic town of Linlithgow (Palace, boat trips on lake, or on union canal). Slightly further away is Deep Sea World at Queensferry (Forth Bridge is worth walking over - very windy!), and South Queensferry is worth a visit for a romantic evening stroll.
The newly installed Kelpies are also worth a visit. On a very warm day, take some swimwear/change of clothes for the kids and one will find a water-fountain feature they will love to play in.

I visit the area at least once per year and normally rent isolated cottage type accommodation. I booked Ochil Hills mainly due to it's close proximity to wedding venue, and am very glad to have made this discovery. My kids really preferred this accommodation and insist we come back here next time!
