“Comfortable and visually charmings”
Reviewed 21 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The owner/manager, Shona, has taken great care to plan many delightful visual touches. The first that you will notice is a professional-looking letterhead and logo for Heart of ST. Andrews which puts this vacation rental in a league of its own. The next iis carefully chosen prints on many walls including an original serigraph (or lithograph) from a signed edition 0f 100. Finally, you will encounter the beautiful modern plumbing and with an excellent shower, the best we've encountered in the UK.

The kitchen is well-equipped and bed is superb. The location of Scribbles is close to shops and markets and to the cathedral ruins where you'll find a stop for the hop-on/hop-off "train," which we recommend.

Finally, we must note that Scribbles is set apart from its ilk by a complete, multi page guide to local attractions and necessities, presumably Shona's considerate work.

Scribbles opens on an intimate courtyard at the end of a close.

St. Andrews is an interesting and warm lowland town--a true Pooh place where one can just BE. It's hard not to envy the University students.

“Perfect attention to detail with updated amenities.”
Reviewed 20 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The unit was clean, well maintained with modern amenities including internet, cable tv, microwave, and user friendly lock. It's close to everything including golf, restaurants, shopping and transportation. It has plenty of room to store luggage so it's out of the way. It has user manuals for everything.

We have family in Saint Andrews so we will definitely return to this unit.

“Perfect long weekend break!”
Reviewed 28 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

The location is perfect - free parking in the street and easy to walk everywhere in beautiful St Andrews. It did help that we had the most fabulous weather so far this year! Shona prepares her lovely home so well for visitors and all the thoughtful extras are what make it so special. Clean and so comfortable - we will definitely be back!!

Scribbles is situated at the quiet end of North Street. Great location, everything you need is within walking distance.
The property was spotless and Shona made sure we had the essentials including cake and wine to get our holiday off to a relaxing start.
This was our second visit and we will definitely be back..
