You’ll love my place because it is in a great location in the Pentland Hills on the edge of historic village. Contemporary architecture, beams, log stove, light-filled rooms and quiet secluded garden. Great for couples, solo adventurers, hill walkers - anyone looking for that special retreat where you can relax away from the hustle bustle of city life and yet within easy access of Edinburgh. Great views, off-street parking, pubs/restaurants nearby, family-friendly activities, public transport.
My place is a contemporary, architecturally designed house, with a shared verandah leading off the upstairs bedrooms and a large garden for guests to enjoy. The rooms are spacious and well-decorated, with comfortable beds. The house is south-west facing, sunny and quiet.
