Sea view Cabin in secluded rural setting near Edinburgh

Bedrooms 1
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

The cabin is located in North Queensferry, a small, picturesque village and home to the three iconic Forth Bridges, including the rail bridge which is a World Heritage Site. The cabin has uninterrupted views down the River Forth, including the historic islands of Inchcolm and Inchkeith, all the way to North Berwick, over 30 miles away. Though in a rural setting, the cabin is only 12 miles from central Edinburgh. It is set in the owner's large, private garden and offers seclusion in a quiet location, visited by wildlife, including deer and pheasants. A winding, sometimes steep, private path leads directly to the beach and the Fife Coastal Path.

The wooden Cabin is newly refurbished and is well equipped, with Wi-Fi and television, radio and CD palyer, fridge/freezer, microwave oven and grill, electric hob, central heating and shower room. The deck in front of the cabin offers fantastic views, loungers, garden table and chairs and a firebox/barbeque. It has a coffee table, desk and chair, wardrobe, shelves, chest of drawers. Parking is secure and private.

The Cabin is sited above the Fife Coastal Path, for walking, biking and horse riding. It goes all the way to St Andrews. This is an ideal location to visit historic and other visitor attractions from Stirling to St Andrews, including prime golf courses, picturesque villages in the East Neuk of Fife, and breathtaking coastal scenery. It has easy access to Edinburgh, an all-year-round tourist destination and the most popular tourist city in the UK after London. The highlight of the year is the Edinburgh International Festival in August. North Queensferry itself has two pubs, a restaurant and a café, all a ten minute walk away.

There is a direct train service from Edinburgh to North Queensferry, then a short walk of 750 metres to the Cabin. Or, take the train to Inverkeithing and then a short taxi ride costing about £5. There is also a very regular bus service from Edinburgh and Edinburgh Airport (both 20-25 minutes) to the bus station at Ferry Toll, which is 1.5 miles distant. Buses from Ferry Toll also go to Dunfermline, St Andrews and other parts of Fife. An alternative route from the Airport is to take the new tram service to the rail station at Edinburgh Gateway and then the train to North Queensferry or Inverkeithing. Edinburgh Airport has many international and internal flights and budget flights.

Why Pat Dennison chose Inverkeithing

This is a real back to nature place but not far from the major attractions which Edinburgh has to offer - theatres, cultural events, the world-famous Edinburgh Festival. It is ten minutes walk to two pubs, a restaurant and a cafe.

What makes this cabin unique

Unrivalled views of the River Forth. Set in a secluded, very private habitat but less than 20 minutes from Edinburgh by train.

Very cozy, gorgeous view!

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, off the beaten tourist path, amazing views! Our delightful hosts were off to holiday very early the day after we arrived all worn out with jet lag. So wished we had been able to spend more time with them as they are both historians and so knowledgeable about the area history. If you want local color and a warm, cozy home away from home, this is the place!

Three of us loved staying here. So comfortable, warm and equipped just right. The views were amazing, could spend all day on the deck. So easy to get into Edinburgh by train via short walk up hill to station. The owners were friendly and helpful. This cabin is a little gem, with most interesting history. It's a place we would rush back too.

Lovely spot to enjoy Edinburgh while being in a quite neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

Hosts were awesome, their knowledge of history in Scotland is considerable and their willingness to share with us was greatly appreciated. The views from cabin cant be over stated - The Firth of Forth and bridges, along with Arthurs Seat and downtown Edinburgh (especially at night - when it finally gets dark(we were there just before solstice) are just lovely. Cabin is very cozy (small) but we didnt want for anything. Thank you Pat and Michael!!

The cabin was the perfect location for our trip. It was cozy and the view was spectacular. The host Pat and her husband Stephen were wonderful and very welcoming. We would rent again and recommend to friends and family. Thank you Pat for sharing your cabin with us.

An utterly delightful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous little hidden gem this is! Not to mention the warmth with which we were greeted on arrival & all the goodies awaiting us-home-made bread, a bowl of fruit, a bottle of wine, etc! The view is just breathtaking & was even commented on by our 17 year-old son😃

Our trip was of necessity a short one ( climbing competition at Ratho on the Sat. )so we really only had the Friday to relax amongst the astonishing bird & wild-life, explore the beach below & swim at the Carnegie leisure centre, but we would love to return to relax & explore some more!

Owner's Response: Thank you for this review. It is always good to know that visitors enjoy the peace and wildlife here at Larch Cabin, while being so near to Edinburgh. These visitors enjoyed the birds and deer in the garden. We also have a donkey and a llama on the land, which children seem to love to feed and brush.
