On a leafy hillside above the Firth of Forth just north of the Forth Bridge, The Crewman’s Quarters is perfectly situated for visiting Edinburgh (and most of central Scotland!) while providing a peaceful retreat from the bustle of the capital.
On a small country estate, this substantial, semi-detached villa was once home to the Admiral’s barge crew and is now an elegant, spacious and most attractive holiday home. The stylish quarry-tiled living room has a wood burner to augment the solar panels and ground-source heating, and upstairs are three charming bedrooms, one en suite. There is off-road parking at the door and a small terrace (furniture).
Trains run across the Bridge to Edinburgh, and buses to the airport, while the estate gardener has a taxi at guests’ disposal. The owner may also be able to obtain tickets for the legendary Edinburgh Tattoo.
