SEA VIEW: looking out across The Firth of Forth Estuary towards Edinburgh & the Lammermuir Hills. No need to stand just sit in the armchairs and watch.
DAYDREAM: You can put your feet up and use your laptop, look at the TV or just watch the random movement of shipping and the local fisherman out on their boats, the ever changing weather- good or bad!
WALKS: Out of the flat into the old village, down to the beach, through the old harbour into a woodland park (with amenities for children) along to Ravenscraig Castle then, if you like, return to the flat via a different route. Etc

Quiet location with ample parking and friendly neighbours. Flat was in immaculate condition and bedroom was spacious and comfy. Kitchen had necessary amenities and has a sit in dining area. View of the Firth of Forth from large living room window is stunning. Freeview TV and Wifi both easy to use and no issues with data speed.

Perfect as a base for seeing Fife and the Lowlands or just relaxing and watching the Firth of Forth. Loved walking the old harbor, the Fife walk, and Ravenscraig park. Trains to take you to Stirling, Edinburgh, and even Inverness. Hire a car for the rest of Fife or the borders.

Management response:
