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 Fife & St 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

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

Favorite property!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was so charming and cosy. It was in the best location in St. Andrews. The cottage was extremely clean, well stocked and beautifully decorated. Alisa was so easy to work with and answered any question we had. The beds were so comfortable and the bedding was luxurious. We hope to go back soon!!

Amazing central location

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely house to share. In real estate, location is everything, but this home had so much more. It was perfect for our stay. Thank you from all of us.

Fantastic week at the Bunker Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a combination golf/ touring week at the Bunker. It was everything we could have hoped for and more. Immediately we felt right at home. We had two couples staying there. The house is cozy, clean, well stocked with appliances and kitchen ware. We did not have one issue with anything regarding the operation of the house. The location may be the very best in town. Walking distance to anywhere. The pubs ,restaurants , shops and grocery stores are all within a five minute walk. The Old Course is right down the street. It's a wonderful area to go for a walk in the evening with the golf course and beach right there. Nice atmosphere.

One piece of advice if you intend to drive. Get familiar with the highway and street signs beforehand. I have driven in Ireland before , but this seems a little different.

One other important part. In the process of renting and prior to arrival,my correspondence with Ailsa was effortless. She answered all of my questions in a timely manner. The transactions regarding payment went through smoothly. Also right before arrival, Ailsa sent out an information document that contained everything you needed to know about the house.

Included in this were many tips on where to eat , park, shop etc. These were spot on. ( Hint: If driving, take her advice about parking near the Old Course Hotel.)

Before coming here we didn't even think about whether we would like return. However now it appears to be a certainty and we will be staying at the Bunker cottage.

Ailsa , thank you for sharing your lovely home with us. Cheers!

Wonderful cozy cottage in the center of St Andrews

  • 5 of 5

We spent a magical week in this lovely 3 bedroom house which is ideally located in the center of St Andrews. No choice could be better for St Andrews University parents--the house is across the street from the main campus buildings. This property is particularly well suited for graduation week. But for golfers too, the house would be fantastic. It's super comfortable, meticulously maintained with a beautiful small and sunny garden.

St. Andrews 2016

  • 5 of 5

You could not pick a better location to stay in St. Andrews. Close to everything, but far enough that traffic isn't bad. Well maintained, well stocked kitchen and good beds. Alisa was back to me immediately with questions as well. We loved the Bunker Cottage.

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.
