A converted container that feels pretty big inside! Rustic, Scandinavian style that makes you feel all cosy.
With a huge, extremely comfortable super king bed tucked in one side of "The Cabin", and an large shower on the other with dining/ kitchen area inbetween it has all you need for a comfortable stay.
Situated in the heart of Portobello a beautiful historical village with amazing views of the harbour. You are a stone's throw away from the peninsula's amazing wildlife.

I recommend Ruth’s place - it’s a lovely little cabin in a quiet location on the peninsula with nearby shop and eateries and a regular bus service into town.
