Description from owner


Our 18th century house is the nearest to the quaint Crail harbour, which it overlooks from all the rooms. The small harbour is still used by half a dozen lobster boats. The master bedroom and lounge also overlook the harbour beach. The house has been completely renovated to a high standard (Visit Scotland 4 star). The large shower room has a walk in shower, the kitchen has all the latest appliances and breakfast table at the window. There is also a toilet on the ground floor. The lounge includes a window seat overlooking the harbour, and a study/library area with books and DVDs. We've turned it into our home from home and hope you think so too.

Due to allergies, we operate a strict No Pets policy.
