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'.

This beautiful house is exactly as portrayed. The space, condition and location do not disappoint.

  • 5 of 5

Don't be concerned by the unimposing entrance in a quiet back lane, this is a perfect house for a family or group of 10. The master suite is huge by UK standards and the bathroom rivals the most luxurious hotel. Each of the additional 4 bedrooms/bathrooms upstairs are of similar design so everyone has an equally great space. Magnifying mirrors, hairdryers are in every room and top quality linens and lotions are used. Nothing has been overlooked. The well equipped kitchen was a pleasure to use and the efficient washer and dryer were appreciated. The spacious living area flows well to the attractive courtyard which features furniture for a group and even a fountain. There are additional sitting areas both inside and on the balcony for quiet escapes. The house truly is a short walk from the main tourist attractions, good shopping, pubs and restaurants. We recommend the on/off bus for those areas further afield. Central Taxis were responsive and efficient, Uber also available.

Our family made memories we shall cherish at 14 Dublin Street Lane South.

Really, we couldn’t have wanted for a more perfect place for our 3 family visit of 10 people.

  • 5 of 5

Great location: near the thick of the action, but on a quiet street. Host checked us in an hour early and showed us around. The ground floor was open with plenty of room and seating. Kitchen was well appointed and sizable. Lots of outside space and seating split between a patio and a balcony in a pleasant courtyard. The master bedroom above the ground floor and the 4 roughly equal bedrooms on the 2nd floor each had their own en suite bathrooms. Also on the first floor: a foosball table and a television room with a full bathroom. The ground floor had a half bathroom. Everything clean, comfortable and pleasant. Good prior-to and while-there communication. For our stay the lack of air conditioning wasn’t an issue.

Family comfort, close to all the action

  • 5 of 5

This was a family stay of 10 Days - 10 people; 3 families.

The property is central in location, and extraordinarily well equipped. Whether staying in or going out the location is outstanding. The quality of the furniture, kitchen, multiple TVs, bathrooms, bedding and supplies are out of this world.

Highly recommend this property. Joyce Usher is also very responsive and helpful, including having a gorgeous Christmas tree and festive decorations put in place.

Wonderful home in New Town. First time visitors to Edinburgh with great stories to take home and remember . Just came down from St. Andrews to close out memorable trip and needed some space and style to chill. Quiet area and easy access to everything. Bring comfy walking footwear. Would do this home again in a heartbeat.

A wonderful stay in a wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 generations getting together to enjoy a short stay in Edinburgh and enjoy the Edinburgh Fringe. The house is ideally located in the New Town and we were able to walk to all our Fringe shows (buses were close by too!). The house was also well positioned for the shops (Harvey Nics, John Lewis, Goethe street and Princess Street) and there were loads of places close by to eat also. The house was beautiful, very clean and very well equipped. Didn't really want for anything. The owners and David (concierge) were very accommodating and responsive when we had a problem with the lights. A wonderful stay in a wonderful property
