Crawsteps in beautiful South Queensferry exceeded our expectations. My partner and I and our mothers spent five nights there. The photos do not do the property justice - it's just too hard to capture high ceilings and the many windows that give the flat an airy feel. The views of the Forth bridge are simply spectacular. It was also great fun for us to play along the shore as the tides went in an out. The flat is right on high street, but traffic noise was never a problem for us, even with windows ajar to let in breeze off the Forth.
The flat is very well equipped with everything you'll need for a week of self catering. We especially liked the large dining table, great furnishings and comfy beds.
There is excellent co-op grocery store less than few hundred yards away - a 5 minute walk. If you have a car, there is also Tesco superstore just on edge of town, but we never needed to go there because co-op met all our needs. We completely relied on public transport for the visit. Stagecoach is main bus company right now connecting Queensferry to Edinburgh (routes 40 and 40A), but I saw announcement that Lothian will also soon bring back its service. We enjoyed the bus ride into town and picked it over train since the stop is right next to co-op store. Dalmeny train station is bit more of a walk - probably about half mile, so we stuck with bus service. Dayrider bus ticket is just 5 pounds on Stagecoach and only 18 pounds for 7 days. Great way to reach Edinburgh.
The owners went out of their way to make our visit enjoyable. They were also very prompt in answering all my questions via email before I booked. I visit the UK form the U.S. at least once or twice a year and frequently choose self catering over hotels. This is one of best experiences I've had - can't wait to go back!
