Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Comfortable detached house in a historic village setting, with the world famous Rosslyn Chapel (as featured in "The Da Vinci Code" film and book), as well as a romantic Scottish castle and a 700 year old battlefield site in the village too. Lovely field and hill views from front of house.

Ideal base for touring Scotland and the north of England. Very close to the Capital city of Edinburgh - one of the most beautiful cities in the world, which each August hosts the Edinburgh International Festival of the Arts, and the Military Tattoo at Edinburgh Castle. In December, there is a Winter Wonderland in the city and many events surrounding Edinburgh's Hogmanay - the 2nd biggest New Year festival in the World. It is only a 30 minute drive to the white-sand east coast beaches, and an easy hour and a quarter drive to the spectacular mountain and loch scenery of the Scottish Highlands.

We have a very sociable and friendly Tonkinese cat called Harry, who would like to stay at home with you while we are away, if you can feed and pat him.

HomeLink members, please see our website (Personal Homepage below) for more details and photographs of the house and village.
