As a global traveler I've learned what constitutes a great rental. My place goes above and beyond the average vacation rental space and has everything you could possible need for your stay. Ceud Mile Failte....a hundred thousand welcomes!

The space

Seconds from popular pubs, coffee shops and restaurants, this cozy, quiet and comfortable three bedroom cottage flat is in the heart of Broughty Ferry. Totally convenient for a holiday stay and just 4 miles from Dundee. The flat is fully stocked with everything you'll need, a true home from home. With two double bedrooms, and one single room with bunk beds, this is the perfect family vacation home.

Our charming cottage style flat is located in the heart of Broughty Ferry, a historic fishing village in the award-winning relaxing seaside village 10 minutes drive from Dundee. It will comfortably hold 4 adults and 2 children, perfect for a family vacation.

There is a washing machine and a separate dryer as well as dishwasher, high-speed broadband and Wi-Fi as well as digital TV with 100+ channels. The cottage has many books and local information about things to do and current information about what's on locally. There is also access to an adult bike (there are great cycling routes in the area) as well as plenty of beach towels and beach toys for the kids. There is also access to a separate garden which is exclusively for your use, perfect for sitting outside on a spring or summer evening with a glass of wine, enjoying the peace and quiet and listening to the birds singing.

There is a key-lock box so you can check-in and check-out unhindered. Help and information is just a phone call away, we are always very responsive to the needs of our guests.

Broughty Ferry is charming Scottish seaside village, perfect for a short break or a place to spend your summer with the kids. Built as a Victorian seaside resort, it has always been a great upmarket place to live. Characterised by a thriving tightly-knit community, great shops, restaurants and pubs, its a terrific place to shop and dine. The cottage is in one of the best locations in the area, located on Long Lane, it offers total convenience to grocery, restaurant, coffee, gelato and shopping.

"The Ferry" as it known as locally, is a thriving community of locals and visitors. With excellent beach access, glorious sunrise and sunset walks, you will see all kinds of wildlife on the trails, including sea birds, swans, dolphins and seals. Make sure to take the kids to visit the famous award-winning Visocchi's ice cream gelato parlour and taste their amazing ice cream. And remember to take a boat trip to visit the many dolphins who visit the Tay during the summer months. Spend some time with the kids exploring the fascinating Broughty Castle on the Esplanade. If you are visiting Scotland and want to get a taste of east coast living, this is the perfect base location. With St Andrews just 20 minutes away and Edinburgh just over an hour, you will escape the crowds but still see everything and more. The Highlands can be visited in a day trip, although obviously you'll want to spend more time there if you can. Come and see for yourself why Broughty Ferry was officially named as the 2nd best neighborhood in the whole of the UK in 2014!

There are buses which will take you everywhere just a few minutes walk from the house. The local train station is less than two minutes walk.

Guest access

You will be renting the entire home. You also have access to a small garden space, perfect for sitting outdoors on a warm summer day or evening. There is a communal drying green area for hanging up laundry shared with a lovely respectful neighbor.

Interaction with guests

I am always available by phone or email. I do have a wonderful friend who manages the place for me day-to-day as I travel a lot with my job.

We traveled to Scotland to visit my mom and all our cousins. We love Broughty Ferry and knew we wanted to stay there. Allison's place was a perfect location. My husband, brother, 2 kids and I stayed at Allison's. It was a perfect size for all of us. Lots of room to move around. We parked our car down by the water everyday. It's a very short walk. You can park directly in front of the flat if you're lucky to get a spot. You can park on the single yellow line in front of flat from 6pm to 8am. We only did that when we knew we would be gone by 8am. The two ladies that live right next to the apartment are very nice and helpful to know about things around Broughty. The grocery and shops all around are wonderful. We can't wait to visit again. Thanks Allison Scott, Laura, Sam and Jack

Really comfy home, felt like one to both of us. We stayed here for one week, and hope could've stayed longer. Everything worked really well. Even though we never saw Alison, she responded to our messages quickly. Honestly recommend!

Alison is a superb host! She's detail- minded, gave us lists of suggestions to go around, addressed to problems promptly. The place is comfy and has everything you need, it feels like home. The neighbours next door are very helpful. There are restaurants, grocery stores and shops around. It's easy to go around. It only takes an hour and half to the highlands. It's a lovely stay. We hope to come back again!

A great holiday bolt hole if you want to entertain children and grandparents alike. The accommodation is superb with all home comforts. Broughty Ferry offers superb facilities from shops, beaches and playgrounds as well as brilliant access to Dundee and the surrounding areas. Alison and her 'team'were efficient at sorting out an initial issue with the property on our arrival. A holiday bolt hole not to be overlooked!

Brilliant! This is the place to stay! From booking this comfy cottage to checking out, there were no flaws. Alison answered all of my questions super quickly before arriving and if I had any through out the stay. The place was spotless and has everything you will need for your stay. It was very comfortable and relaxing. It is 10 minutes maximum into Dundee and there is plenty of convenient shops and restaurants in Broughty Ferry. Would highly recommend this lovely cottage for anyone visiting Scotland!! :D Thank you Alison!
