We really enjoyed staying in this cottage. The decor has an artistic flair and it was very clean and had all the kitchen amenities that one might want. We found it centrally located. There was about a twenty minute drive to the Falkirk train to Glasgow and the Dumfermlin train to Edinburgh. It was an easy drive to the William Wallace Monument and Stirling Castle. We enjoyed walking to the village of Culross and eating at the Red Lion Inn. The owners of the cottage took extra care to made sure we were comfortable.
A cottage with appeal and charm

This little cottage was fantastic. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a quiet time away and yet close enough to main towns you can easily drive too. The cottage is spotless and the owners will met and greet you on arrival with a smile and make you feel at home. A short walk to the Red Lion is very handy as well.

We spent a wonderful 2 weeks at Ness View Cottage and were welcomed by Mrs Lind upon our arrival, I must mention that she had stocked the kitchen with necessities like bread, milk, tea etc. which we found extremely kind. Coming from Canada it was much smaller than we were used to, however it was definitely not a problem. We found the cottage very cosy and comfortable and lacking nothing - every room was well equipped. The garden and the "studio" were also very nice and secluded although with the bad weather and all the travelling around we did there wasn't much time spent in either. We would definitely recommend this cottage to future holiday-makers and if we ever decide on another holiday in Scotland we will not hesitate to stay there again.

Left on 04/24/2012 for a stay in April 2012 | Peter and Ruth Bennett
We had booked the house specifically because it was "dog friendly" and for its location. House is well appointed and very comfortable. There was nothing we could fault. Warm welcome from the owners and good explanation of heating etc.
The location is good for accessing Fife Coastal Paths and city of Edinburgh (by train). Off street parking. There is a well kept large garden to the rear of the property which is a bit undersold.
Only criticism is that the directions we received to find the house were not clear - house was described by a name when it would have been easier to find by its number as no name could be seen!

The owners were there on arrival, gave us a warm welcome and were very helpful. The house itself was lovely, well equipped, cosy and within easy walking distance of the Red Lion pub which had a great atmosphere and excellent food.

I was uncertain about booking this cottage because it looked so tiny from the outside but I was delighted on entering to find that it was much larger than I had imagined.
The owners were very helpful in their communication and had been extremely thoughtful in the equipment they had provided - good quality kitchen utensils, comfortably furniture and even new games and Dvds.
The garden was fantastic - we would have used it a great deal more if the weather had been better.
The property suited our family (two children 11 and 7) perfectly and the location was excellent.
Only two (small) gripes. The bathroom needs refurbishing as the sink is too small to brush your teeth in and the bath is difficult to get out of. Also the open stairs mean the TV can be heard too much upstairs.
However these are small points and did not spoil our holiday. I would definitely recommend it to others and would commend the owners on the care they have taken over the property.
Well equipped, well located, amazing garden
Left on 08/17/2011 for a stay in July 2011 | Anna9
The owner met us at the cottage and was very friendly, leaving us fresh milk and biscuits for a long awaited cup of coffee. The house was small but perfectly finished with everything we needed, including children's toys hidden away in fitted cupboards. The garden was extensive with a lovely summer house at the top and very friendly neighbours - our children played with next door's children whenever they were out together. The cottage was next to a beautiful village called Culross and a short drive from sandy beaches and other major cities such as Edinburgh. Overall, a lovely, relaxing stay and we would definitely use it again if we were to return to Scotland.

Great place to stay & "get away from it all"
Left on 08/03/2011 for a stay in July 2011 | Joan & Jerry Bishop
My husband & I had a short break here with our dog. The cottage is comfortable and well equipped with a beautiful garden complete with log cabin. It is ideal for walking & cycling with footpaths to historic Culross and Preston Island which we used daily. Gifford & Anne are great hosts who gave us lots of local information. We will be back!
Comfortable, cosy, child friendly accomodation

Very enjoyable stay, the owners are very friendly and helpful. Cottage was cosy, very comfortable and very well equipped (particularly for small children). Liked the very personal touches, which made the experience even better. Well located for exploring Fife and the surrounding area.
