                                  Enjoyed our stay here the property was very clean spacious and was very well equipped. It is situated in a nice area and is close to the main town and other shopping outlets. The owner John could not have been more helpful and explained everything we needed to know. Bottle of bubbly provided by John was appreciated as well as the doughnuts. We were visiting my daughter who now works in the area and would certainly stay here again.

                                  The flat commands a brilliant view of Kinghorn beach and is very handy for shops and trains to Edinburgh. It's a comfortable and homely place to stay. Thanks Emma
