Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
A modern, elegantly furnished and comfortable studio flat in the beautifully historic village of Culross. The studio has an open plan layout which means that it is beautifully light and airy with unbeatable views across the village and the Firth of Forth. The property benefits from a home gym, secure parking and mountain bikes for rent. A truly ideal spot in one of Scotland's most picturesque, 17th century villages.

Don't take our word for it though - look at our reviews from recent stays!

The space
The main house, The Tanhouse (circa 1750), sits within a large corner plot and the Studio flat is situated at some distance away from the house so guests will have complete seclusion for the duration of their stay. The property benefits from secure parking at the studio flat.

The studio itself has an open plan layout which means that it is beautifully light and airy with unbeatable views across the village and the Firth of Forth. The studio has a king size bed and a 2 seater sofa and armchair which are ideal for watching the 32' TV + DVD/CD player. There is also a small selection of films, and games in an attempt to cover all entertainment needs.

The kitchen area houses a fridge, dishwasher, microwave, mini oven/grill/air fryer and a 2 burner hob. A table and chairs are situated at the end of the kitchen with ample room for 2 guests to eat (all crockery and cooking utensils are available). If the weather is nice (Scotland dependent...) there is a private outside seating area for guests which takes in spectacular view across the forth. The usual selection of crockery, pots etc is provided (as are basic cooking ingredients; oil, salt, pepper, tea coffee etc.)

If you plan on eating out in the evenings we would highly recommend booking at the local pub (The Red Lion.) During the summer months there are 4 lovely cafes in the village and (usually) a small market on the village green on Sundays.

The shower-room has an electric corner shower, velux window, toilet and hand basin. All linen, soaps, towels etc. will be provided by your hosts in addition to soap etc. We have a clothes washing machine that long term guests are free to use.

We have 2 mountain bikes (and two helmets) that can be hired for minimal daily charge so that guests can explore the area by bike! We also have a full home gym that guests can access. The gym has a running machine, rowing machine, kettle bells and a punch bag which are free to use for guests (guests are asked NOT TO USE the turbo bike set up).

We offer our guests free range eggs from our chickens and (hopefully) a selection of home made jams from our vegetable/fruit garden (please note that this depends on availability!).

A welcome pack is provided with local information, a detailed plan of local walks and a guidebook.

Where you’ll be

Culross, Scotland, United Kingdom

Culross is truly unique place to stay. A village which time has passed by; the most complete example in Scotland today of a Burgh of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

Most famously, in recent years at least, the town has been used as a key filming spot for the famous Outlander television series. A stay in town is an absolute must for fans of the television show which acts as the fictional village of Cranesmuir.

There are countless things to do in Fife and the surrounding area. For golfers we are within an easy commute of many courses - Glen Eagles and St. Andrews are both within an hour's drive. For motor sport enthusiasts Knockhill Race Circuit is only a short drive away. The Falkirk Wheel and the giant Kelpies are also close by and ensure a unique experience. as is the whicky distillery at Deanston.

We're a great place to stay for hikers - these are countless forest and riverside walks from our doorstep (we provide a map of the local area/hikes).

Slightly further afield (25 mins drive) are the Ochil Hills and Lomond Hills (30 minutes drive) which offer fantastic hiking experiences. For those keen to bag a Munro (or two!) the Crainlarich hills are around a 60-75 minute drive away, or the Arrochar Alps (Loch Lomond), can be reached in 60-90 minutes.
