Duncastle B & B
Bed & Breakfast
East Lothian - Scotland
Duncastle B & B at Eaglescairnie Mains offers the best of both worlds - warmth and comfort in rural tranquility with stunning views over rolling wooded farmland combined with easy access (30 minutes) to the city of Edinburgh.
Barbara and Michael Williams welcome guests to their beautifully furnished cottage set in the centre of their 350 acre conservation award-winning farm - you can relax, play tennis or explore the farm. Their daughter Nicola is now the farm manager and she & her family live in the main farmhouse.
There is just so much to do locally - attractive East Lothian country towns and coastal villages, the stately homes of the Borders, ruined castles, numerous golf courses, wild heather-covered hills, empty beaches, the Seabird Centre and Bass Rock gannetry, Concorde at the Museum of Flight, Glenkinche whisky distillery (generous tastings!), Roslyn Chapel and of course Edinburgh itself.
