FĂ ilte! ~ Welcome!

Gilkerscleugh Mains Farm nestles aside the winding river & wide skies of Abington, South Lanarkshire. Set in unspoilt Scottish landscape the farm once sustained Gilkerscleugh Mansion, previous seat of the Hamilton's of Crawfordjohn circa 1632. While the mansion was destroyed by fire in the 1950's, Gilkerscleugh Farm has been lovingly & sympathetically renovated by three generations of our family, to create an exceptionally comfortable, contemporary & welcoming country retreat.

Just three miles from the village shop, local restaurant (& pub!) our farm house offers large family accommodation from which to explore Lanarkshires many award-winning visitor attractions. With the cultural City of Glasgow & vibrant City of Edinburgh each only an hour away, we are ideally located for memorable family day trips!

Our home is your holiday & we look forward to welcoming you in 2018!

Farm House ~

Renovation of the old 'boot room' restored original sinks to their former glory & provided a modern utility room with large capacity washing machine, tumble dryer, clothes press & family storage.
