The room was very spacious and modern, it's amazing how the owners have got an old building to maintain the original charm but with immaculate mod cons. The bed was so cosy,...

This B&B offers top-class accomodation. The house oversees the Firth of Forth and offers prime views onto the river (in clear weather, that is).
