Romantic Holiday Cottage Edinburgh

The Boathouse

Romantic Holiday Cottage Edinburgh

The luxurious Boathouse is secluded in the heart of the Dundas Estate on a private loch. It is a one bedroom self catering cottage with beautiful views over the loch and provides the most perfect and cosy retreat.

Choose to stay here to mark a special occasion or simply just to escape everyday life.  A voucher for the Boathouse can also be purchased as a gift for a loved one. Should you wish to make a payment towards a Boathouse stay as a gift you can buy a voucher in £50 increments.  Whatever the reason for your stay, you are sure to have a relaxing retreat that you will never forget.


Dining on the balcony    swans on the loch    Breakfast hamper option


The Boathouse has its own fully equipped kitchenette, shower room and seating area. Please speak to a member of our team about options for dining in or for purchasing a luxury breakfast hamper that will be delivered to your door in the morning.


Even though you are only 8 miles from the centre of Edinburgh and 15 minutes from the airport, there is 500 acres of wood and parkland there for you to enjoy. There are printed walking maps available so that you can appreciate the estate and enjoy watching the myriad of wild bird life which include swans, herons, ducks and coot.


Should you choose to leave the seclusion of your private holiday cottage then a short drive will take you to South Queensferry, near Edinburgh, with its charming stores, historic buildings, waterfront pubs and restaurants and of course the magnificent views of the famous bridges.  Champany Inn, one of Scotland's finest restaurants for beef, lamb and seafood, complimented by an award winning wine cellar, is just 15 minutes away.

Thank you to all the team at Dundas for making our stay at the Boathouse so memorable.  We had such a lovely time and our hamper breakfast on the sunny Sunday morning was delicious.  Lisa thoroughly enjoyed her surprise stay and has asked that I take her there again! Thank you all again for a great and memorable stay at the Boathouse.”  - James Macpherson-Fletcher
