About Ailsa Wilson

I live in Australia, but was born in Scotland. Both my brother and mother live in St Andrews and so it makes sense to own some property in the area.

Ailsa Wilson purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Ailsa Wilson chose St Andrews & North Fife

We bought this property because we love the town of St Andrews - it holds a special place for us, as we were married here, and enjoyed our wedding reception at the Old Course Golf and Country Club. We also have a lot of family living in this area.

What makes this cottage unique

I love our cottage because it is just so cosy and so completely central to everything you could want from the town of St Andrews. It's age gives it history, and stories yet to unfold!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time in St Andrews at the weekend. The cottage was fab!

Fantastic Cottage. Perfect location in St. A's

  • 5 of 5

Alisa's cottage is fantastic: up-to-date, plenty of room, a great functional kitchen, roomy bedrooms, and a great patio. My brother, dad and I celebrated his 70th birthday including much golfing. The cottage was the perfect location. Walkable to everything in St. Andrews (you are directly across the clock tower) of St. Andrew's University. Highly recommend this place if you want to be close to pubs, restaurants. Unforgettable trip, made all the more so by this perfect gem of a place.

Cosy base in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was lovely - it had everything we needed for a short break in January, most importantly good central heating! Equipped to a high standard and in a fantastic central location we never had to go far for our next coffee, lunch, dinner or glass of wine. Would strongly recommend.

Owner's Response: So glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and the cottage fitted your requirements. The cottage is certainly central and I am pleased it was a cosy space for you in winter. Hope to see you again for another winter weekend or for a summer shop maybe !

Beautiful cottage in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

There is really no better location to stay in St Andrews than this (and as ex-St Andrews students - we should know). It is bang in the centre and the perfect location to see everything.

The cottage itself is beautiful - cosy and clean. There is plenty of room for 6 people and the fireplace was a real treat.

The owner was very helpful and responsive. I would happily recommend this property (and the Indian restaurant around the corner - Maisha!)

A perfect location....

  • 5 of 5

How perfect a setting 84 North Street was as our base for our younger son's Wedding at St Salvator's Chapel and Reception at Upper and Lower College Halls.

If anything, we all felt that the 'cottage', which was much bigger overall than we had anticipated, had been undersold.

Apart from an unfortunate problem with a toilet syphon, to which

the owner responded so rapidly, we couldn't fault a thing.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your time in reviewing number 84 David. So glad all went smoothly for your family wedding. I'm glad the cottage exceeded your 'size' expectations - always better that way than the other! Hope you will visit again one day. Best Ailsa

Fabulous holiday

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful house in perfect location with plenty of room for all six of us - none of us wanted to leave in the end! A huge thank you to the owner, Ailsa, for dealing with special request and having put a lot of thought into the little extras provided in the house that gave it that wee bit of added "luxury". All being well, will definitely be back next year.

Owner's Response: I'm really glad you enjoyed your stay at our cottage and that you found it roomy enough for 6 people. It was our pleasure to be able to help make your holiday a bit special. Best Ailsa

St Andrews
Car: recommended

The charming medieval town of St. Andrews has much to offer its visitors. It is the home of golf as well as the oldest University in Scotland. It has a fascinating history, beautiful beaches and walks and excellent restaurants. It really is an idyllic location for enthusiastic golfers or a base to explore the east coast of Scotland.

St Andrews is a town meant for exploring. The medieval layout of the town centre remains intact, with the main shopping areas concentrated in Market Street and South Street, with Bell Street and Church Street connecting the two principal streets. Take time to explore - on foot - and take pleasure at the surprises and delights you will find.

St Andrews holds a special place in Scotland's history. It takes its name from the Apostle whose relics, legend tells us, were brought to this place in antiquity by St Rule. Scotland later adopted St Andrew as her patron saint and took his salt ire cross for her flag.
