There is also a balcony that runs the full length of the property facing South across the Firth of Forth towards Edinburgh and the Pentland Hills. TVs are located in a number of the rooms. Virgin Media TV and wifi is included with the rental. We have their full package in both living rooms providing Sky Sports, BT Sports, Sky Films, Virgin TV and lots more. The broadband is via optical fibre and very quick. A welcome pack of essentials such as bread, milk, tea/coffee, eggs etc will be here on your arrival. A mature garden is located to the front of the property. It's private and fully enclosed. The area incorporates a patio with sun loungers, large table and parasol, bar-b-q and patio heater. There is a large driveway to the side of the property which allows for 4 cars to be easily parked. The street itself is very quiet with no through traffic. The property is a brief walk from the local sailing club, river and beach with spectacular views of the coastline, the Forth Bridges and across to the centre of Edinburgh. The Fife Coastal Path is a must for any walkers with opportunities to fish (river and sea) in the local area. There are also various local golf clubs in the area (including Aberdour, St Andrews and Carnoustie) where play can also be arranged. There are various local beaches to enjoy in the Summer including the Blue Flag Silver Sands Beach at Aberdour (10 minute car journey) and St Andrews West Sands (less than 1 hour away). However, its very nice just to walk the coastal path from our house which is barely 5 minutes away. Dalgety Bay is an ideal location to take advantage of Edinburgh (including the International festivals) and to explore historic areas such as the East Neuk Fishing Villages, St Andrews, the Highlands (less than 1 hour away) and the ferry terminal at Oban to the Islands of Scotland (about 3 hours away). A great location to visit the sites where the 'Outlander' TV series is filmed. It's also just 3 hours or so by car to Inverness and Loch Ness. The centre of Edinburgh is only 15/20 minutes away by train and there are park and ride (bus) facilities in the next town, which is a 10 minute drive. The train station is a 5 minute drive away and there are numerous bus stops at the end of the street. Edinburgh Airport is approximately 20 minutes away by car but can also be reached via the local train and bus services. There are a variety of local shops in Dalgety Bay including Tesco, ASDA, ALDI, Lloyd's Chemist, Domino Pizza, Gregg's Bakers, Post Office, various take-a-ways and a number of cafe's & restaurants that are only a ten minute walk away. The local restaurant 'Louis Browns' which is a 5 minute walk away is great for food or just a coffee. They have also opened another Bar / Restaurant next door with tables on the lawn outside. Another great place for a relaxing drink and / or meal. There is a Jacuzzi in the rear garden outside to the right of the house on the patio. This area is enclosed and not overlooked and has a small area beside it with seating etc. There is a £100/ week charge to use the Hot Tub and we will require a £200 deposit, all payable on arrival. The deposit will be returned to you prior to leaving, so long as there is no damage caused to the Hot tub. It's, continually heated to 36 / 38 deg and has lighting but no music etc. It will take 4 people comfortably but is best suited to three at a time. A very relaxing time. I regularly check the water and it has a continual system for the addition of appropriate chemicals to ensure the water is always up to the required standard, now required by law whenever a Jacuzzi is rented.

Interaction with guests
We live locally, so are available if you need any help to get the best out of your holiday in Scotland. We will be available on your arrival to hand over the keys and show you around the house. If any guest is interesting in Fishing we can help to arrange a trip. There are some good trout lakes in Fife where it's not too hard to catch fish - so long as your luck is in. If you would like to learn how to Fly Fish for trout in one of the Fife Lochs' I can help by showing you or going along as well and giving you some tuition. A couple of hours ticket for fly fishing - catch and release - costs about £15.
