What a great stay we had in Colinton. We were over for the Royal Highland Show and it was lovely to come home after a long day to nice clean & cosy house. Great kitchen with all you need to prepare dinner in the evening, with a large living room were we would unwind after. Hope to be back for next years show. Thanks for having us Lorna.

The house was perfect. It was immaculately clean and lovely and warm with every household item you could need. It's in a lovely quiet area with good local amenities and a frequent bus service to town. Lorna answered all our queries before hand. Thank you.

Very pleasant stay for 2 weeks with 2 toddlers. Well equipped cottage with pretty gardens and plenty of parking. It felt like home and a great space for children to explore. Small coffee shop in Colinton and local walks up in the hills. Bus is 25 mins into the city centre. It was a pleasure to come back each evening and we would definitely return.

I live in Edinburgh with my young family, and manage several properties in the city. It's such a fantastic city, I really enjoy welcoming guests here! I enjoy researching things and eating out, so my favourite question is probably being asked for restaurant recommendations ;)
