Located in West Wemyss, a charming conservation village on the shores of the Forth, Compass Cottage sits on a sunny hill with outstanding views towards Edinburgh. A traditional Fife coast village with harbour, creels and white-washed cottages, West Wemyss is quaint and tiny but it has its own pub and hotel (serving delicious home-made meals) and is only minutes away from central Scotland's major road networks. Scotland's beautiful capital city, Edinburgh, is less than an hour away and St Andrews, the home of golf, is only 40 minutes.

This area is blessed with some of the driest weather in Scotland and there is plenty to do; first-class attractions such as Deep Sea World and Scotland�s Secret Bunker are half an hour away. In bustling Kirkcaldy (just 10 minutes away) you�ll find first-rate theatres and art galleries, great parks and leisure facilities and plenty of shopping. There�s the famous racing circuit at Knock Hill, with karting, motor-biking and trials bike clubs even closer. Take days out on boat trips to bird-sanctuary islands, fly kites on long sandy beaches (Elie, St Andrews), steep yourself in Scottish history at impressive castles, ancient cathedrals and fascinating fishing museums. It�s all here, all year, at Compass Cottage - you can enjoy a self-catering holiday in Fife in this luxurious cottage (with many extra comforts) and explore this fascinating part of Scotland.

Compass Cottage is built in the style of the traditional Fife fisherman's homes but was completed only recently, so it's bright and modern and offers all the comfort and luxury you need to really unwind on your holiday. The house has been created by the owners of Scottish Linen, the luxury linens company inspired by Scotland. They are passionate about promoting the best of Scotland and are delighted to be able to offer you a flavour of this through their beautiful holiday home in Fife.

With its white-washed walls, sash-and-case windows and red pantiled roof, Compass Cottage really is as pretty as a picture. From the back of the house there are stunning views across the Forth towards Edinburgh: by day watch the shipping on the Firth, by night see the lights of Lothian twinkle in the distance. The house is immaculately presented and offers spacious and welcoming accommodation for 4 people on 2 levels. Upstairs there are 2 king-size bedrooms (with either 2 superking (US Californian King) or 4 single (US Twin) beds) and a fresh, contemporary bathroom. Downstairs is a large open-plan living / dining area, a well-fitted kitchen and separate cloakroom.
