THE PROPERTY IS ALSO ONLY 4 MILES FROM EDINBURGH AIRPORT. This COTTAGE is surrounded by countryside and has incredible walks on the doorstep, both in the beautiful historic Cammo Estate and also along the River Almond all the way (2 mile river walk) to picturesque Cramond with its beach, harbour and access to Cramond Island. The uninterrupted Views from all cottage windows are exquisite, looking over colourful fields, Turnhouse golf course and all the way over to Edinburgh Airport. This is also a very central location for touring with lots to see and do in the surrounding area. The Cottage is only 2 miles from the village of Corstorphine with its many cafes and independent shops. Edinburgh Zoo is also under 4 miles away and there is easy access to the city centre. Local to the property (within 2 miles) are two 24hr supermarkets, The Gyle Shopping Centre and Hermiston Gate Retail Park. 
There are many pubs and restaurants close by including The Glamorous Maybury Grosvenor Casino and Restaurant which is open until 5am!! 

The Train, Tram and Bus services to town are all within 2 miles of the property.

 The cottage is in an ideally situated spot for travelling all round Scotland, with easy access to the M8 to Glasgow and the M90 to Perth - the Gateway to the Highlands. Perth is only 38 Miles and Glasgow 41 from the property. The cottage has a fully enclosed Private rear garden, safe for both children and dogs. There is a very sociable patio area right off the main house with table and chairs, BBQ and wood burning Chiminea. 
There is also a luxurious HOT TUB with adjustable power jets and colour changing lighting, sitting on the raised purpose built deck. The HOT TUB has outstanding views over the fields, right to the runways of Edinburgh Airport. Adding to the spa experience there is also a Sauna and changing room in the outbuilding accessed from the rear garden. Both the hot tub and sauna can accommodate up to 6 people. 
 To the front of the house there is a gated driveway with enough space for 4 cars. 
The cottage offers THREE bedrooms: 1 king-size with en-suite shower-room and power shower, 1 double room and 1 twin room(the double and twin are both upstairs with WC). It has a freshly decorated Family Bathroom: with a 10.5kw shower over the corner bath. The spacious lounge has a real open fire, a 42” flat screen TV and full Sky package including Sports and Movies. Off the lounge is the kitchen with breakfast bar, electric oven/hob, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave and pod coffee machine. There is more than sufficient crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils.
 There is also a small attractive dining room.

We stayed for three nights, very close to the show so we were able to taxi and not worry about parking. Nice holiday cottage with bits and pieces for you to use that makes it very homely.
