Only 15 - 20 minutes from Edinburgh Airport by taxi. A beautiful modern and spotlessly clean family home right next to Dalmeny train station and only 20 minutes to centre of Edinburgh. An ideal, peaceful spot from which to enjoy Edinburgh at all times but particularly during the world famous Edinburgh Festival (and Fringe) when the city is choked with visitors. A great starting and finishing point for touring (cycling) the North of Scotland. We are literally 5 minutes from Fife.

Mark's place was great. A lovely house to stay. Bedroom very cosy with a great ensuite. Lots of local knowledge and enjoyed a good breakfast there of porridge and toast.
