About Simon and Joyce Usher

Simon and Joyce Usher live on The Dunglass Estate which is a family run Estate in East Lothian Scotland.

Dunglass is a historic traditional agricultural Estate and it is currently one of Scotland's finest wedding and event venues offering stunning accommodation that's set within a beautiful designed landscape.

Having successfully launched our new accommodation and event business in 2009 as part of an extensive diversification plan for Dunglass Estate we are continuing to evolve in to the prime holiday let market.

Joyce has exceptional experience towards internal design of properties and she has recently completed renovating five houses on Dunglass Estate for the event and holiday let market. Joyce's passion, experience, enthusiasm and attention to detail towards interior design ensures that properties are presented to the highest standard and that you will have a most memorable and comfortable time.

Simon has been closely involved with the running of his family estate which was purchased by his great grandfather in 1919.

Famed for their philanthropy - Simon's ancestor, Andrew Usher, donated funds to build a city hall in Edinburgh in 1896 and this later became one of the cities most prestigious concert venues called The Usher Hall. Andrew Usher began experimenting with the blending of Whisky in the 1840's. Although the business was eventually sold, The Usher family were pioneers of their time helping to create 'The Water Of Life'.

Simon has worked together with his wife Joyce to evolve the family's interests both with the wedding and event business and more recently towards the acquisition of our new property Dublin Street Lane.

We both care very much about helping bring together memorable experiences in exclusive places and our motto is 'Unforgettable Occasions'.

Sheer Delight in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

Just stayed for 3 nights and was a total joy,

The house has 5 en suite bedrooms of the highest standard in a perfect location close to the center of Edinburgh.

Has all the amenities you could want for in a perfect getaway whether with family or friends.

Despite a slight technical issue with the booking Joyce was on hand to sort so our trip could go ahead as planned and we were not disappointed.

Would highly recommend and will definitely book again.

Excellent location with plenty of space for large groups

  • 5 of 5

Communication with the property manager was great. Replied quickly and check-in went smoothly. The property is spacious with plenty of room for all 7 of us with a room and bathroom to spare! Place was clean, neighborhood was quiet and the kitchen well stocked. We hired a chef to cook dinner and there was enough place settings for 7 of us with two wine glasses and 6 courses. The chef used all the cooking pans and utensils. We were well within walking distance to shopping, restaurants, cafe's, market and tourist attractions. Only issue was wifi was spotty - had to reboot the router multiple times. Other than that, would highly recommend.

Simply Excellent.

  • 5 of 5

We we're a group of 9 coming together for the 2 rugby finals, & we had a long weekend in this house.

The house is superbly fitted out, there is lots of space, & we sat outside on both the terrace & in the garden in the sunshine. It's also in a very central position, with parking. It does have everything.

We wouldn't hesitate to return.

Xmas Wedding in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

We used this house to extend our stay in magical Edinburgh at Christmas time after a family wedding. It was absolutely perfect for our needs and felt like home from home straight away. The bedrooms were all so comfortable with en suites for everyone and the kitchen had every utensil and serving dish you could possible need for a large family gathering. The lounge / kitchen was the perfect social space and the boys (not just the small ones) loved the football table on the landing. The house had also been beautifully decorated for Christmas with a tree too, which we weren't expecting. The house was located in the heart of the city, so easy to walk in and be part of the xmas markets and lights. We had an exceptional time and would definitely return with half a chance! Thank you so much for making our stay such a pleasure! .... and for the Champagne in the fridge when we arrived :)
