About Simon and Joyce Usher

Simon and Joyce Usher live on The Dunglass Estate which is a family run Estate in East Lothian Scotland.

Dunglass is a historic traditional agricultural Estate and it is currently one of Scotland's finest wedding and event venues offering stunning accommodation that's set within a beautiful designed landscape.

Having successfully launched our new accommodation and event business in 2009 as part of an extensive diversification plan for Dunglass Estate we are continuing to evolve in to the prime holiday let market.

Joyce has exceptional experience towards internal design of properties and she has recently completed renovating five houses on Dunglass Estate for the event and holiday let market. Joyce's passion, experience, enthusiasm and attention to detail towards interior design ensures that properties are presented to the highest standard and that you will have a most memorable and comfortable time.

Simon has been closely involved with the running of his family estate which was purchased by his great grandfather in 1919.

Famed for their philanthropy - Simon's ancestor, Andrew Usher, donated funds to build a city hall in Edinburgh in 1896 and this later became one of the cities most prestigious concert venues called The Usher Hall. Andrew Usher began experimenting with the blending of Whisky in the 1840's. Although the business was eventually sold, The Usher family were pioneers of their time helping to create 'The Water Of Life'.

Simon has worked together with his wife Joyce to evolve the family's interests both with the wedding and event business and more recently towards the acquisition of our new property Dublin Street Lane.

We both care very much about helping bring together memorable experiences in exclusive places and our motto is 'Unforgettable Occasions'.

Simon and Joyce Usher purchased this house in 2014

Xmas Wedding in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

We used this house to extend our stay in magical Edinburgh at Christmas time after a family wedding. It was absolutely perfect for our needs and felt like home from home straight away. The bedrooms were all so comfortable with en suites for everyone and the kitchen had every utensil and serving dish you could possible need for a large family gathering. The lounge / kitchen was the perfect social space and the boys (not just the small ones) loved the football table on the landing. The house had also been beautifully decorated for Christmas with a tree too, which we weren't expecting. The house was located in the heart of the city, so easy to walk in and be part of the xmas markets and lights. We had an exceptional time and would definitely return with half a chance! Thank you so much for making our stay such a pleasure! .... and for the Champagne in the fridge when we arrived :)

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Six of us coming together to celebrate the 40th anniversary of starting at Edinburgh University booked this flat to serve as our base. We could not have been more pleased with it. the location is excellent - central yet quiet. The quality of the rooms, the furnishings and the equipment was very high, as was the standard of cleanliness. The presence of a quality table football table for 6 (very rusty) enthusiastic players of the game was an enormous bonus. Communication with the owners was first class and the friendly & helpful concierge ensured everything ran smoothly. This is a really great property.

Wonderful place to stay in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything advertised and more. All rooms are very well furnished and equipped. It was a perfect place to stay. It was in easy walking distance of everything we needed close by; places to eat, buses, Tesco and trams. Plus, the welcome from David was very helpful, friendly and informative. The assortment of food and drinks left for us in the kitchen were a very welcome surprise. Thank you so much for everything. We had a great time. Your house has set the bar high for anywhere else our family stays in the future.

Fantastic house in great position.

  • 5 of 5

For a group of ladies staying in Edinburgh for the weekend this house was perfect; everything we could needed was there, such as a well-equipped kitchen, comfy seating, ensuites for every bedroom and an extra lounge if we needed more space. The house is really well positioned within walking access to Princes Street, the main shopping area as well as many bars and restaurants. It is deceptively large and furnished in a modern but classic style. The communication with Joyce, the owner, was easy and she quickly answered all the questions we had. It was also very straightforward arranging to meet Eddie the concierge so check in/out was simple. Nice touches were the welcome drinks and snacks provided and we really appreciated the flexibility with our early arrival time. Would highly recommend for a large family or group of friends. Thank you!
