    Holiday Rental House – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    If you would like a secluded and romantic get-away, this beautiful Boathouse is your perfect choice.

    Located in the heart of the Dundas Estate on a private loch, it is a one bedroom cottage with beautiful views over the water and provides you with the most perfect and cosy retreat. You can wake up to a champagne breakfast on the veranda whilst watching a myriad of wild bird life including swans, herons, ducks and coot.

    Should you choose to leave the seclusion of your private holiday cottage then a short drive will take you to South Queensferry, with its charming stores, historic buildings, waterfront pubs and restaurants and of the memorable views of the famous bridges. The Boathouse can be a fantastic gift or a surprise for a loved one.
