                              Had a great time at this property beautiful views over the park and very peaceful. Good location near to high street but within enclosed land.All amenities were provided within the house and it was very clean and tidy.lovely garden to sit in and two spaces to park our cars. Owner John met us on arrival and showed us around property and was available if we needed him.

                              Nicely furnished, well equipped, peaceful.

                              This was a very convenient cottage for us and we were pleasantly surprised that it was in a lovely cul-de-sac, which was very peaceful. Don't think photo's do it justice. At rear it was great to look over rooftops from rear windows and see the Cargo ships going into Edinburgh. Accommodation was very comfortable, good quality furnishings and very well equipped. Some interruptions with TV reception, not Sky, wouldn't normally bother us, but the snooker final was on and it seemed to lose signal on every crucial pot. Plenty of towels, blankets, essential toiletries etc provided, good welcome pack with all essentials and a bottle of wine. Heating system very efficient but it seemed a warm cottage and didn't really use it much. Laptop provided, didn't use but a nice touch. Perhaps a more efficient vacumn cleaner would be useful. Overall an enjoyable comfortable stay.

                              The apartment was great! Very spacious and had everything we needed. Very quiet at night and in a perfect location very close to the beach! The owner was great throughout the whole booking process and gave us all the information we needed. We would defiantly return to the apartment and discover more of Scotland's beautiful beaches!
