CHARMING COTTAGE IN HISTORIC DUNFERMLINE, IDEAL CENTRAL LOCATION

Dunfermline & West Fife Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom accommodation, sleeps 4, ideally situated for all activities

Carnegie Cottage in Grieve Street Dunfermline is a typical late 19th century Victorian stone cottage. The cottage retains many original features including cast-iron fireplaces, internal window shutters, and cornicing, but with central heating, WiFi, and all the modern day comforts you expect of a holiday rental. There is a private south facing patio for enjoying the sunshine. There is free parking on the road outside the cottage.

We are in a quiet residential location near to countryside and parkland, yet just a few minutes walk to Dunfermline town centre, with all the usual shops and numerous cafes and restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets.

With historic buildings, museums, country walks, and delightful parkland of its own, Dunfermline is also ideally situated for visiting many of the historic towns and villages of Scotland, whether travelling by car, or public transport. You are never far from the sea, or a golf course, and our attractive hilly countryside.

PLACES TO VISIT NEARBY: Dunfermline has an ideal central location within easy reach of many of Scotland's finest tourist attractions.

The BUS STATION is near the centre of town just 10 minutes walk from the cottage, from where there are regular services throughout Fife and beyond, the longer journeys using comfortable coaches. Or take the TRAIN.

Below is just a small selection of the many places to visit within 10 to 60 minutes drive.

LIMEKILNS AND CHARLESTON

Attractive old Scottish towns on the Forth Estuary, 10 minutes drive, just right for a pleasant evening stroll.

ABERDOUR

Fancy a day by the seaside. The beautiful Silver Sands, is a secluded, sandy beach nestling in a sheltered bay, with great views across the estuary and easy walks along the wooded coastline. Visit the 14th century castle.

MORE PLACES TO VISIT: INCHCOLME ISLAND AND ABBEY

Regular boat trips during the summer from South Queensferry. Fascinating journey up the Forth. The bird life on the island is fantastic, expect a bit of dive bombing if you go during the breeding season. The Abbey is abandoned but there is lots of it left to explore.

CULROSS

Perfectly preserved old Scottish town complete with cobbled streets on the banks of the Forth. Visit the Abbey and Church, the 17th century Town House, and “Palace”, a magnificent merchant’s residence built around 1600.

ELIE, EARLSFERRY, ST MONANS, ANSTRUTHER, PITTENWEEM, CRAIL

A string of incredibly picturesque old fishing villages, with coastal walks. Kellie Castle lies just a few miles inland.

ST ANDREWS

Lively University town by the sea with remains of castle and cathedral, and wonderful old buildings. Stop off on the way at the quaint old village of FALKLAND at the foot of the Lomond Hills, with its impressive Royal Palace.

AND YET MORE: STIRLING

The historic town of Stirling with its magnificent intact castle, perched high on its rock is only 30 to 40 minutes drive, with a regular direct bus service. Near Stirling, at Blair Drummond, is a drive-through wild life park complete with lions and tigers, giraffes, elephants, chimps and other animals.

On the way to Stirling stop off at DOLLAR with its castle on the hill and lovely wooded walks.

EDINBURGH

Just twenty minutes by train. Must-see cosmopolitan capital city with its castle on the hill above Princes Street.

Lovely cosy cottage, great holiday

  • 5 of 5
The cottage had lots of character and was ideally located for everything. Next time we'll bring the grandchilden as the playpark just a few minutes walk from the cottage is fantastic. It was great being able to stroll around the wooded walks in the Glen and go for a meal out at night without having to take the car. So many places to visit in and around Dunfermline, a week just isn't long enough.

Abtauchen in romantische Gefilde

  • 4 of 5
Unser vierter Schottland Urlaub. Wir haben uns in diesem entzückenden und heimeligen Cottage mit Garten - ein extra Bonbon - sehr "ZUHAUSE" gefühlt. Es war alles, sowie eine gut sortierte kleine Bibliothek !!! vorhanden.
Besonders angenehm zum Entspannen nach "anstrengendem" shoppen im 10 Min. entfernten Zentrum von Dunfermline oder dem
Lustwandeln im wunderbaren Park! Die Abbey war immer und immer wieder ein Anziehungspunkt.
Ohne Anstrengung waren in diesem Urlaub die Ausflüge nach Sterling,
Glasgow, St. Andrews, Cupar, Kirkaldy, Crail !!! und Culross !!! und das Highlight am Ende EDINBURGH und das Tattoo - so nah und einfach zu erreichen. Ob mit dem Bus, Zug oder Auto. Besonders
zu empfehlen die Küstenstraße - auf dem Hinweg von Newcastle
über Bamburgh Castle zu fahren. Und für die Rückfahrt die Landstraße
nehmen und die Lowlands geniessen!
Lieber Mr. Smith herzlichen Dank
und wir kommen sehr gerne wieder.
