Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Crail, Fife, Scotland
This is a lovely detached cottage, only a short walk to the historic fishing village of Crail. It has wonderful south facing views towards Crail and the Firth of Forth. The cottage is a short walk from Crail, amidst farmland that inclines for about a mile towards the rocky shore and waters' edge. The surrounding land offers many pleasant walks in rural countryside. Shops, pubs, beach and a beautiful harbour are all present within Crail.

Sleeps 4 - full weeks and short breaks (Saturday to Saturday only in summer school holidays )

Our weekend rates are generally 65% - 75% of our weekly rate. Our nightly rate is not worked out on a pro rata basis from our weekly rate and generally we do not accept bookings of less than 3 nights.

I could not recommend this property for a number of reasons 1. The carpets were covered in dog hair, 2. The bed valance was also covered in dog hair, 3. The furniture was old and tired and needing replaced, 4. As per the 2012 comments the bathroom requires upgrading, 5. Wallpaper was peeling off, 6. The property smells. Unfortunately I...

I've used Kingask Properties before but first time at Meggie Allans. It's beautifully situated in farmland overlooking Crail but close enough to walk into within 5-10 minutes. Very roomy - well thought out living areas, two bathrooms (a must for us with young children) and a beautiful wrap-around, secure garden. Again, perfect for families or those with dogs. The staff...

About the neighbourhood
A small, traditional fishing village within the East Neuk. Seemingly untouched by time, the traditions of the old East Neuk fishermen live on in this untainted part of Scotland. Situated on the Firth of Forth, originally Crail and other such villages in the area provided Scotland with vital sea ports for trade with the low countries. The village now offers a peaceful and unhurried lifestyle within a picturesque environment which has attracted artists since Victorian times, and boasts one of the most photographed harbours in Scotland. It also claims the distinction of having the 7th oldest golf club in the world.

Most of our properties in Crail are within walking distance of the village, meaning you can easily walk to the shore, coastal path and Crail beaches. Most have sea views and offer...
