Why Trevor Smith chose Pittencrieff
Great location in quiet friendly street close to historic town centre, cafes, restaurants, museums, theatres, bus station, parkland, open countryside and food shops open until 11.00pm. Very central for visiting places of interest in Fife, Edinburgh and Stirling.
What makes this Cottage unique
Unlike most so-called traditional cottages this property has not been gutted, plasterboarded, and pvc'd so that little more than the stone walls remain. Virtually all of the woodwork is original 1890's which helps to maintain the old world atmosphere.

Warm and cosy.
Good location for town centre.
A very comfortable and charming cottage, which has everything that you will need.
Had a really lovely stay, the cottage in really close to Dunfermline centre and the Glen, so everything this was close to hand and at easy reach. The cottage was very comfortable and welcoming, with free wifi, which we took advantage off. I found everything was very clean with fresh towels all folded and waiting for us on our arrival. The weather was fortunately really nice on our weeks stay which made our holiday perfect.
I would recommend staying in this cottage to anyone that is visiting/staying in Dunfermline. The Sherlock family
Nice place, nice location
Very comfortable house in a great location in easy walking distance to town centre and beautiful park.
Stayed nice and warm throughout a very cold two months.
We would recommend it even for a short stay and would definitely rent it again if the occasion arises.
The cottage was well equipped for our family of five. We enjoyed our stay in Scotland and it was a pleasant place to rest our heads at the end of a busy day of exploring.
quaint cottage in quiet street
Had a lovely stay at Carnegie Cottage, suited us a family of 5, very clean and tidy, heating was good, and close to Dunfermline centre and the Abbey. would recommend for anyone to stay
Lovely cosy cottage, great holiday
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.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Yes the Glen just down the road really is a fantastic place, The woodland walks are so atmospheric, and there are so many lovely places to visit in Fife, picturesque fishing villages, castles and gardens, as well as the big city of Edinburgh within easy reach.
Carnegie Cottage is centrally located within easy walking distance off all attractions. To start with, on arrival you may be hungry.
The town centre of Dunfermline, just ten minutes walk from the cottage, is pedestrianised with numerous shops, from Debenhams and Tesco to small local delicatessens, and countless restaurants and cafes to suit all tastes and budgets.
Arriving late, then the Tesco superstore 10 minutes walk from the cottage is open 7.00am to 11.00pm (8am to 8pm Sunday).
Arriving really late, then Asda at Halbeath about two miles away is open 24/7.
Once settled in, Pittencrieff Park, known locally as The Glen, is just 5 minutes walk from the cottage, with lawns, woods and streams, flower gardens, state of the art modern play parks and historic architecture, and friendly squirrels. You can go that way into town.

Or what about a swim, then there is the recently refurbished Carnegie Leisure Complex, all within easy walking distance. GOLFERS are spoiled for choice with over 50 golf courses within 50 miles of Dunfermline, including several within the town itself.
The coastal villages of Limekilns and Charleston are just 15 minutes drive away, and the silver sands beach at Aberdour not much further.. Culross as seen on the TV series Outlander is a perfectly preserved old Scottish town with cobbled streets on the banks of the Forth.
Other Outlander film locations nearby include the harbour at Dysart near Kirkcaldy, historic Aberdour Castle and the quaint old town of Falkland at the foot of the Lomond Hills with its impressive Royal Palace.
In summer, why not take a boat trip from South Queensferry to Inchcolme Island and Abbey, or from Anstruther to May Island. Or across Loch Leven to the castle where Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned. The picturesque coastal fishing villages of, Elie, Earlsferry, St Monans, Anstruther, Pittenweem, Crail, and the university town of St Andrews are within an hours drive away.
The scenic coastal train journey across the famous Forth Rail Bridge, a World Heritage Site, leads to the busy, must-see cosmopolitan city of Edinburgh with its castle on the hill above Princes Street. It takes about half an hour, or go by bus. If traveling by car you will cross via the magnificent new 2.7 km long bridge known as the Queensferry Crossing.
The historic town of Stirling, with its magnificent intact castle perched high on its hill overlooking the town is only about 40 minutes drive away. Near Stirling is the drive-through safari park at Blair Drummond complete with lions and tigers. On the way to Stirling stop off at Dollar to see the mysterious ruined castle on the hills above the town.
If you come without a car you can get to most of the places above by bus from the bus/coach station 10 minutes walk away.
A year is just not long enough to take in all that Fife has to offer, let alone a week or two so we hope you will be back again and again.
