Holiday Rental House
Our 18th century house is the nearest to the quaint Crail harbour, which it overlooks from all the rooms. The small harbour is still used by half a dozen lobster boats. The master bedroom and lounge also overlook the harbour beach. The house has been completely renovated to a high standard (Visit Scotland 4 star). The large shower room has a walk in shower, the kitchen has all the latest appliances and breakfast table at the window. There is also a toilet on the ground floor. The lounge includes a window seat overlooking the harbour, and a study/library area with books and DVDs. We've turned it into our home from home and hope you think so too. Due to allergies, we operate a strict No Pets policy....Our 18th century house is the nearest to the quaint Crail harbour, which it overlooks from all the rooms.

Crail is a very nice place anyway and so is this. Everything you need and right on the harbourside. Terrific!

Crail is an unspoilt fishing village. Fresh lobster and crab can be bought within a minutes walk from the cottage. The scenery is stunning all along the coastline of Fife. We hope to be back!
