My husband, myself & our 14 year old Stayed here for 4 nights. A lovely place to stay. Comfortable & well equipped complete with a pretty little garden. Fantastic to be able to unwind & relax in a home environment rather than a hotel room, after a busy day of sightseeing. It's situated 4 miles from the city centre, with...

The cottage is next door to the owners house (good for keys collection) and near a main road (with bus stop nearby) into Edinburgh but as soon as you shut the door, there is just silence, perfect after a busy day in Edinburgh. However the best bits were the more local attractions, ice cream on Portobello Beach or playing skittles...

About the neighbourhood
Locally the seaside town of Portobello with beach promenade and host of restaurants and bars is just a 10-15 minute walk away. Figgate Park offers beautiful vistas to Arthur's Seat (dormant volcano in the city), duck pond and garden walk (10 mins from St Margaret's). Portobello 9 hole golf course is located just to the rear of St Margaret's offering even the novice golfer a good, fun day out. Musselburgh with its harbour and promenade are just 2 miles down the road and the port of Leith just 2 miles in the other direction - all well worth a visit!
