This 18th century Grade B listed three storey property, still retains many period features and charm, offering cosy living with 21st century comfort. Nestled in a peaceful private position, within a short walk to a beautiful sandy beach.  Situated in the historic coastal village of Kinghorn, with its attractive sheltered bay and splendid sandy beaches.

This quirky little cottage spread over three levels is wedged between houses in the centre of historic Kinghorn. Just 500 metres to both the beach and the station for direct connections to Edinburgh, it’s the perfect bolthole for a couple’s break.

The house is accessed by four stone steps from the road where there’s plenty of on-street parking. Step straight into the cosy lounge area with an open fire primed and ready to light as the evening draws in, and a traditional Scottish style that blends perfectly with the age of this 18th century listed property. There’s a dining table to the rear, and stairs down to the basement kitchen. The electric oven and hob, plus large fridge/freezer and microwave are ideal for those who want to eat in, and a washing/drying machine means wet or sandy kit doesn’t need to be left to fester until you get home. Enjoy breakfast or a quick coffee at the kitchen table before you head out to explore or open a bottle of wine while you prepare dinner. On the same level, the bathroom has a bath with a shower over. Stairs from the lounge lead up to the cute double bedroom in the eaves with low-level windows looking across the trees and rooftops of the town. An exposed stone wall makes a nice feature and the period furniture reminds you of the house’s rich history. A TV, with DVD player, provides entertainment if all that sea air has failed to exhaust you fully, but we’re confident you’ll not make it through a whole film without the eyelids drooping.

  • Bedroom - one double with TV/DVD
  • Bathroom - Shower over the bath and WC
  • Kitchen - with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer, on the lower ground floor
  • Open fire (first basket of coal included) and TV/DVD in the lounge
  • Wi-Fi included
  • Bed linen and towels included
  • Electric and central heating included
  • Regret no pets
  • Beach, shops, pubs and restaurants within walking distance
  • Roadside parking
  • Arrival: 4pm

Set on a quiet road off Kinghorn's main street, the cottage really has the best of both worlds. The impressive former town hall at the bottom of the road has recently been restored and the pub/restaurant opposite is a great place to enjoy a meal or an evening drink. It's just 500 metres to the seafront with a pretty sandy beach flanked by the lifeboat station to the south and the harbour to the north. Beach-lovers can stroll across the headland, about a mile to Pettycur Bay for an alternative beach with dunes and views across to Edinburgh Castle and Arthur's Seat on a fine day. At low tide you can walk right along the shore to Burntisland Beach too. If the views have whetted the appetite for adventure, or you just fancy a trip to town, it's 500 metres from the house to the station and you can be in Edinburgh in 40 minutes for a spot of sight-seeing and shopping in the beautiful city. Kinghorn Loch is just a mile from the cottage, popular for swimming and water sports, as well as its fishing and walking trails. The surrounding conservation area has many trails for walking, cycling and wildlife spotting that stretch as far as The Binn, a small hill in Burntisland.

Fabulous cottage that was very cozy well equipped & very handy for the local bus & train services.Ideal for a couple but 2 steep narrow staircases between the bedroom & bathroom so great as long as this is not a issue for you.

A very clean and well maintained old cottage style property in quiet village. There are only 3 rooms, one on top of another, plus bathroom and separate toilet, but all well equipped and of a good size. Disabled and elderly need to know the bedroom is in the attic space and the bathroom/toilet in the basement space with two narrow stairs in between.Read more If you can manage those it's great. Hide

The Wee House is just what it is, but big enough to be a comfortable place for two. Kinghorn is an attractive village on the north bank of the Firth of Forth. The cottage is only a five minute walk from the railway station from which there is a fine view across to Edinburgh. A 40 to 50 minute train ride takes you to Edinburgh Waverley so the cottagRead moree is an excellent base for visiting the city and the Festival. Hide

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
