This residence has a perfect location. We were after seclusion and comfort and we found it. Approaching the residence you drive through a few acres of trees, and at the end of the road, the estate becomes visible. You have complete privacy and yet are very close to everything you need. Fleur was a big help and was in contact whenever we needed something. Would we stay again? Absolutely yes!

Green Craig more than exceeded our expectations in every way. From the very prompt responses and advise from Fleur, to the very quiet and well appointed bedrooms ,to the gorgeous views of the Firth of Fourth, to the warm fire set and ready on our arrival, this was the perfect house for a family gathering in Scotland. And oh yes, if you are a golfer you could not be in a better location.

We spent our 35th wedding anniversary at Green Craig. What a relaxing place this was for our first visit to Scotland. Fleur the manager of the property was extremely helpful with the arrangements. She took care of the car rental and the transfers to and from the airport. The photos are accurate and the grounds were spectacular. Take advantage of the small restaurant Ducks in Aberlady. It is a short distance away from the home and have excellent food and the staff were exceptional. We were able to take advantage of a tip Fleur gave us on a stable that provided us with a wonderful ride along the beach overlooking Bass Rock. One of the nicest features about the location was its proximity to the train station in Longniddry, which was approximately 2 miles from the house. We were able to catch the train to Edinburgh, which arrived downtown without the hassle of taking the vehicle and trying to find parking.
The home was so welcoming after a long day of touring and we would love to return one day.
