Very well presented and equiped cottage with the owners going the extra mile to make sure you have everything you need. The friendly and knowledgeable Dougie and Christine were helpful and free with advice and suggestions about places and attractions in the area. We went to so many places and saw so much I could not mention it all. The R.I.B. trip from North Berwick out to the Bass Rock was, for us, a amazing experience, wet, salty,cold and fast, but to see(and smell) 120,000 Gannets wheeling and diving around us was unforgettable. Another day was spent in Edinburgh where the Museum took up two thirds of the day and we did not see it all.
Nice people who liked the cottage very much. Hopeully the start of many more reviews on this - our new site, our other site has many reviews.
