    Cosy and Modern

    The Wee Glasshouse is the perfect base for exploring Edinburgh, the Fife coast and just chilling out. Exceptional views from a modern, cosy and very well connected house. The Bluetooth speaker system in the bathroom is a brilliant touch. Alan was brilliant to deal with and couldn't have been more helpful

    Beautiful house with amazing view

    Hard to think how the Wee Glass House could be better. Stylish, loaded with gadgets and tech, comfortable, a very friendly welcome from Alan, and the stunning view over the Forth. We are already booked to return next year. Perfect for access to Edinburgh and Fife.

    Fantastic stay

    We have just returned from the most relaxing 3 night stay and would like to thank Alan for being so lovely and helpful. The apartment is so lovely and has everything you need and the you would never tire of the view. The costal path straight across the road was so handy and being near different places there was plenty to do and knowing you were coming back to the lovely apartment finished the day off. Looking forward to returning in the the future and thanks again Alan for being the perfect host and having the best apartment and view. Lynn & Iain
