    A very good price for a cottage within 20 minutes of Edinburgh city centre. Not really anything local as you need to travel for any amenities. But would recommend and definitely stay again.

    We had a great week at Eilean Donan. We were met by Mike on arrival & received a great welcome. Mike explained everything to us & was always there if you wanted to know anything. The welcome basket was a nice extra. The cottage is very well located for exploring the area & if we visit the area again we will definitely use this cottage again. It was spotless & had everything you could possibly want.

    Eilean Donan provides all the facilities you need to feel at home and is a good base for exploring the South East of Scotland. Park and Ride Bus and Tram links to Edinburgh and Livingston Designer Outlet are only a short drive away. We will definitely be going back!

    Lovely cottage in the grounds of the owners property. The property was spotlessly clean and we couldn't find fault with anything. The owners were very helpful and the welcome basket was a nice touch. If we revisit the area we will definitely book again.

    Third time at Eilean Donan cottage & will be back! Spotless, warm & so well equipped. Best holiday cottage we’ve had, can’t recommend it enough. Denise & Mike are wonderful hosts, welcoming & always at hand if needed 

    We had an excellent weeks holiday at this very spacious bungalow. We were met by the owners on arrival, who were very welcoming and informative. The bungalow is perfectly positioned for getting into Edinburgh, with a very good Park and Ride just a few miles away and also for visiting the local areas. We have stayed in several very nice self-catering holiday homes in recent years but this property was the most well equipped and cleanest by far. All that you could wish for and more. We will definitely recommend to friends and hope to return ourselves in the future.



    out of 10

    Very comfortable stay, spotlessly clean family friendly and very quiet despite proximity to a71 and handy for links to Glasgow and Edinburgh. Owner was friendly and the bungalow was well equipped. Welcome hamper of snacks was a nice touch
