The Courtyard description

Holiday home
The Courtyard is a first floor apartment in the village of Aberdour, just eighteen miles from Edinburgh. The apartment sleeps four people and has one double bedroom and one twin, along with a family bathroom. Also in the apartment are a kitchen and a sitting room with dining area. Outside is off road parking for two cars. Situated in a historic coastal village, The Courtyard is a fabulous apartment from which to explore this lovely part of the country.

The historic coastal village of Aberdour sits across the Firth of Forth from Edinburgh with its main street just inland and connected by narrow lanes to the coastal part of the village. Originally built up around the harbour where the Dour Burn runs into the River Forth, the village was essentially in fact two: Wester Aberdour and Easter Aberdour, however the connection was made with the coming of the railway at the end of the 19th century. What remains of Aberdour Castle is one of the oldest surviving stone castles in Scotland dating from the 12th century. Much added to over the centuries by the Douglases, the site is now managed by Historic Scotland and visitors can enjoy the walled garden and terraces and the distinctive beehive shaped dovecot. Known by the Victorians as the Fife Riviera, the secluded Silver Sands and Black Sands beaches have always been favourites and remain so to this day. The village holds a popular annual festival in late July and early August including cultural and musical highlights as well as a regatta and a run.

From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.

The immaculately kept apartment was in a lovely village with great beaches, fantastic castle, pubs, bakery and a selection of shops, and was also in a prime location for the train to Edinburgh and other areas.

The apartment was perfect. It was cosy but stylish with the train station on doorstep, which with us not having a car was great. The location fantastic and we will go back again and recommend it to friends and family

The property is very central in Aberdour. The village itself is enchanting with an interesting history and lovely beach close by. It is within easy access of Edinburgh across the Bridge, the Fife Coastal Path or to the lochs and mountains further north. We would definitely like to come again!
