About David & Emily MacSporran
We have lived in Edzell for the last 15 years. I recently retired from the Builders Merchanting Industry and now spend my time golfing, walking, gardening, diy and being a member of the Community Council. Emily is a retired accountant and she also enjoys the country pursuits. We both take an active interest in the village and the surrounding countryside and glens.
David & Emily MacSporran purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why David & Emily MacSporran chose Edzell
It is not often that properties come on the market for sale in Edzell. When Edgemuir, 97 High Street and the apartment above it did come onto the market at the same time we thought this was a great opportunity to invest in one of the original houses that was build around 1860. Edgemuir was in dire need of repair and we took time and care renovating it to a high standard. The property now offers very comfortable and freindly accommodation and has been awarded Scottish Tourist Board 4 star rating.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Fantastic five-star find
My family didn’t want to leave Emily’s wonderful apartment in Edzell! The apartment was modern, clean and comfortable. Emily was a fantastic host who was quick with communications and a pleasure to meet upon check-in. Great beds and meticulously clean. Loved it!
Lovely welcome and a very nice flat. Good location next to the park.
