The base is available for use by both charity and non-charity organisations and is an amazing place to hold a workshop or even camp out.
The cottage is steeped in history and retains many of its original features but this also means that there is no inside toilet, however we do have an outside compost toilet that was built by the young people with help from staff and volunteers.
Set at the foot of the glorious Pentland Hills, just outside the City of Edinburgh, there is parking at Harlaw Car Park, which is just a short walk from the cottage.
Due to the wild and natural terrain it is not accessable by wheelchair.
