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 Saint Andrews

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

amazing spot in an amazing town!

  • 5 of 5

what a gem of a cottage! i could gush about the perfect location, the adorable garden and sun room, or the beautifully decorated bedrooms, but you should just go to St. Andrew's and stay at this amazing property to see for yourselves. the owner was extremely helpful and responsive (alerting me in advance to some nearby construction that didn't remotely impede our enjoyment in any way) and the home was exactly as pictured and described. well stocked and neat as a pin, i would highly recommend this property--and hope to return again with my own family!

Lovely cosy cottage in the heart of St. Andrews

  • 5 of 5

We visit St.Andrews every year for a spot of golf and this year we took our family with us. The property was very clean and cosy upon our arrival and had everything we needed for our short stay. Everything is within walking distance for a relaxing day round town, along with the golf courses! We would definitely stay again! Many thanks!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

A super cottage in a fantastic location. It was beautifully decorated and very well equipped with everything you would need. Like home from home. The beds were so comfy. All amenities were within a few minutes walk. Free parking was available nearby. Communication with the host was excellent. Wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you.

Fabulous time in St. Andrews! Memories made.

  • 5 of 5

We were in St. Andrews for our daughter’s graduation. The cottage was a perfect location. We were within a 5 minute walk from all of our events. The cottage was beautiful. It met all of our needs and was our home away from home. We could hear the bells ring every day. It was a true historic Scottish experience with all of the modern amenities as well. We will stay there again!

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.
