Condo/Apartment
At Crawsteps we can accommodate up to six people plus young children and a well-behaved dog. We offer you a large dining room with adjoining fully-equipped kitchen, ideal for reunions and dinner parties, a luxurious and spacious lounge with multi-fuel stove from where you can keep an eye on the shipping on the Forth, 2 large bedrooms with plenty of storage space and a bright, modern bathroom. Free Wi-Fi., linen, fuel and cleaning are also included in our rates. We have tried to equip the apartment so that nothing is lacking during your stay, so you will find lots of tourist information, books and dvds with a Scottish / British theme, novels and activity books for adults and children. For rainy days we have cupboards of board games, jigsaws and toys. The flat is up one flight of stairs ...At Crawsteps we can accommodate up to six people plus young children and a well-behaved dog.

For rainy days we have cupboards of board games, jigsaws and toys. The flat is up one flight of stairs and is child-friendly. (Cot, high chair and playpen available on request). Your dog is welcome too! We occupy the entire second floor of a much photographed building, originally built in 1674, it is a grade B listed building in a conservation area. A traditional, real-ale pub serving sensibly priced pub grub is on the ground floor, 'The Ferry Tap' has a really friendly atmosphere and even welcomes children and dogs. We are delighted to greet our guests when they arrive and to introduce them to the apartment. We speak French and German (as well as English!). We can provide a welcome pack and tips on things to see and do in the area. We do not live on the premises, but are only 15 minutes away. Queensferry is a very pretty, historic town in its own right with numerous restaurants, bars and two supermarkets. There are scenic walks in the woods or along the sea-shore from our doorstep. The town has a small museum and is the start point for boat trips out to the islands of the Firth of Forth to watch wildlife, including large seasonal puffin colonies. Of course, it is also the best place to see the world famous bridges. Easy access both to Edinburgh and to the rest of Scotland - you can be amidst the Lochs and glens within 40 minutes drive. We opened for business in May 2014. The flat is newly furnished and ready to welcome you, so why not take a chance, you'll not regret holidaying in Queensferry! More

I stayed here for a long weekend with some friends and family and we weren’t disappointed. The apartment is huge and even with seven of us staying we had plenty of room. Carole was great from start to finish, and made us feel very welcome...More

Crawsteps has to be completely unique. It is in a very old building above a pub. Large sash windows overlooking the most incredible views of the Firth of Forth. It is like being dropped back centuries. You are in the middle of this really charming...More

How to get there
Off street parking is possible by taking Hawthorn Bank; a small road opposite Scotmid supermarket. Here you will find non-reservable, free parking for about 25 cars. To access the flat continue along this road and turn left into the Vennel. We are the tall white building at the end. The entrance stair has the name Forth Court above it and we are the middle buzzer. If arriving by train your end Station is Dalmeny, then you have a pleasant 10 minute stroll down to the High Street. The 43 bus from the city centre will drop you off a 3 minute walk away.
