Thoroughly delightful! We arrived late afternoon with one additional question needed to access the house. Everything was ready for our arrival with fresh flowers at the entry and a bottle of bubbly to enjoy. Easy access to bus service into Edinburgh...local pubs and restaurants worked out great for our group. Easy access to a local grocer for breakfast items and all things needed for wine(or beer) and cheese at the end of the day. We enjoyed the many updates on this home; bathrooms clean and no problems with hot water for our group of nine; laundry access; the 6 bedrooms provided options for our group that worked out great; and we were able to enjoy the outdoor seating only one evening. Thank you.

We absolutely loved our experience here. What a beautiful home- perfect for family holidays. A quick bus ride to Edinburgh but enough space for kids to run around in our down time. The host was generous with suggestions in advance, catered to our large family.
