Cobbinshaw is at 1,000 feet (300 m) above sea level on the edge of the Pentland Hills. Nearby villages include Woolfords, Auchengray and Tarbrax. It is next to Cobbinshaw Reservoir, built in 1818 to supply water for the Union Canal.
In 1685 Walter Lord Torphichen sold the lands of Camilty and north and south Cobbinshaw to William Tennant.
