About Ailsa Wilson

Hello

My name is Ailsa and this is a photo of Joanne and myself (in black) at the front door of the cottage. I look after the bookings and your pre/post-arrival and Joanne looks after the housekeeping side of our beautiful cottage. Joanne 'loves' the cottage like her own. 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 a property in the town where my family can keep an eye on it.

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 there, and held our wedding reception at the Old Course Golf and Country Club. It is also very special to own, as it brings us closer to family living there.

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!

Fabulous holiday

  • 4 out 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.

Perfect Location for Graduation

  • 5 out of 5
Loved everything about the cottage, nice kitchen and living area with sun porch and garden. We hosted family and friends for graduation and could not have had a better location. Ailsa was easy to communicate with and made sure all our needs were taken care of. Hope to return some day!

Great place for golfers!

  • 4 out of 5
This cottage is in a great location, near the Old Course and other attractions as well as plenty of shopping and restaurants within short walking distance. It was comfortable with all of the items the listing indicated. One of the beds needed to have the linens cleaned when we arrived but otherwise the place was clean and ready for use. I recommend this property for golfers or anyone else looking to spend some time in this lovely town!

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.
