“Spick and span, very well equipped and great location to tour the Neuk of Fife.”- Ms Millett, October 2020
“This apartment was perfect for us.”
It was located in the centre of the village next to the railway station where there is a car charging point. There are actually 2 but often one was 'unavailable'. The apartment was spick and span and very warm and comfortable. If our party had been made up of 4 large adults we might have found the two bedrooms a little on the small side. There was only 2 of us so it wasn't an issue. The kitchen is well equipped so it is easy to prepare quite ambitious meals if you don't want to go out. I couldn't find a lemon squeezer, but that might just be me not looking in the right cupboard ! Good instructions for re-cycling were provided. The owners live close by and are very helpful. We will certainly book this property again when we are next in this area.- Williams, September 2020
“The accommodation was excellent, everything that was needed for a self catered holiday was available.”
Information in respect of equipment was emailed from the owners prior to the holiday. The area of Aberdour is beautiful and we hope to return in the future.- Ms Miller, September 2020
“A great place to relax and explore Scotland.”
A lovely well equipped appartment which has everything you need, every thing is excellent quality and was spotless. We felt very safe and comfortable. We would definitely recommend this appartment and place to everyone, well worth a visit.- Mrs Parsons, September 2020
“Lovely flat, with everything we needed and in a very good position for enjoying the beaches and villages of Fife.”
A very enjoyable holiday.- Mrs Ward, August 2020
“We all enjoyed our time in the apartment.”
It was like staying at a friend's place, everything was individual and good quality.- Ms Patience, March 2020
“We had a lovely week in Aberdour.”
The apartment was comfortable and well furnished with everything you might need. It’s so convenient for getting around by train and by road and we had some good walks along the coastal path. There’s a lovely bakery and deli/cafe 5 minutes walk away which does lovely breakfasts. I’d definitely recommend the apartment as a base for visiting the area and for events in Edinburgh as the trains run well into the evening. Thanks for a relaxing stay.- Ms Wheat, February 2020
“Lovely well equipped Apartment,very comfortable.”
Aberdour is beautiful scenic location for coastal walks,exploring quieter areas as much as city's. We used trains and buses for the week we were away and public transport is very efficient we found.- Miss Williams, October 2019
“Aberdour is a little gem of a village”- Mr Carter, October 2019
“The flat was spotlessly clean ,with lovely decor we couldn't fault it.”- Mr Mccabe, July 2019
“This is the second time we have stayed at this property.”
It is well equipped and comfortable and in a fabulous location for exploring Edinburgh and the Fife coast. The railway station at the back is very convenient for catching trains to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee as well as more local stations which means you can leave the car where it is and have a break from driving and parking. There are some lovely local walks and lovely beaches. The weather wasn't terribly kind to us but there is plenty to do and see in the locality so it didn't hamper us too much. We visited National Trust properties on the rainy days including Culross and Falkland Palaces.- Mrs Firman, June 2019
“The owners were very helpful and provided us with non-feather bedding.”
The apartment was in a lovely location for walks around the coast with fantastic views across the Forth. We took a day trip to Edinburgh on the train and also took the bus to Dunfermline, visited Loch Leven (in the rain) and explored the fishing villages up the Fife coast. All in all, we had a very relaxing, enjoyable week in this lovely apartment.- Mrs Moore, May 2019
“I have previously stayed at The Courtyard, so I was aware that it is a really excellent property.”
It is well placed close to railway station which enables you to get into Edinburgh and other local towns very easily. The owners of the property are very helpful and nothing is too much trouble. I had a wonderfully relaxed holiday. Also I have booked with Sykes a good many times and have always been delighted with the service I've received and also the properties on offer. Thank you and I hope to book with Sykes again.- Mrs Hirsch, May 2019
“The property owner communicated clearly and effectively and was very accommodating of our requests.”
They even erected a Christmas Tree for us to make the visit more festive! The flat was cleaned and available for an early arrival and the keys were easy to find in their secure location. We met them on site and they were very friendly. An all round good experience.- Mr Tyrrell, December 2018
“The settees in the lounge are a bit to low for comfort.”
But overall excellent apartment.- Mr Plenderleith, September 2018
“This was a lovely comfortable apartment in a very good location.”
It was spotlessly clean and we had milk and shortbread waiting for us so we could make a drink whilst unpacking and settling in. There were walks along the coastal path with some lovely views across the Firth of Forth to Edinburgh. Village shops were only a couple of minutes walk away and the delightful railway station was literally on the doorstep. We went to Edinburgh and Glasgow on the train to avoid traffic and parking issues and it worked very well. We also discovered that our English National Trust membership qualified us for free entry to NT properties in Scotland so visited Culross Palace and Falkland Palace which were both lovely villages. The Tenement House in Glasgow was also very interesting. Visiting the Kelpies was another highlight of the week - they are stunning! In a nutshell, this is a property that we will definitely return to as all home comforts were there and there is still plenty to explore in the area.- Mrs Firman, September 2018
“The apartment was located in the heart of the village, with a lovely cafe, bakery and shops.”
It was also very close to the railway station so travel to and from Edinburgh and the surrounding area was very convenient. The apartment was very comfortable and had everything you could possibly want in the way of tasteful decor and appliances to make your stay as much like home as possible.The owners were a most charming and helpful couple, nothing was too much trouble for them. It was close to two lovely beaches in a very tranquil setting, so that you could easily have the excitement of Edinburgh and also the more peaceful environment of the village and coast. I would have no hesitation in recommending this beautiful holiday apartment to anyone.- Mrs Hirsch, August 2018
“Apartment had everything we required and was very well located for the village, walks and local facilities.”
We were lucky to have chosen the week of theannual Aberdour Festival. It was also conveniently located for the other places we wanted to visit..- Mrs Swain, July 2018
“We Bert content with location, train parking etc.”
We enjoyed the location also bevause of environment, good golfcourse, shops, restaurants were adequate. Especially easy to visit Edinburgh! Pieter Vos- Mr Vos, June 2018
“Very helpful owners, nothing too much trouble for them, went out of their way to assist us”- Mr Smith, March 2018
“Great location and apartment”- Mr Law, November 2017
“Clean comfy great area to explore”- Mrs Nimmons, November 2017
“A lovely apartment, ideally situated.”
Well appointed and set up property which lacked for nothing! Even a bottle of milk in the fridge! Thanks to the thoughtful owners.- Mrs Wild, September 2017
“Great apartment in a lovely village”
The Courtyard was very good. Well furnished and a great range of utensils/crockery - everything you need. Owner was very helpful - especially shortbread on arrival - very welcome after along journey. Also being able to open the balcony door on sunny mornings was a real bonus - even if it is cool outside it's a real sun trap. Aberdour is lovely. The two beaches are very different. Great coastal walks in both directions and also into the hills above Burntisland with amazing views of the Firth of Forth with it's islands, awe inspiring bridges and over to Edinburgh and the Pentland hills beyond. Even if you don't catch the train you should visit the station and the sensory garden across the road. Good location near to shops and pubs. The Cedar Inn was best in our opinion.- MaboRegular, August 2017
“Excellent base to explore the fife coast as well as convenient for the train a lovely area any time of the year”- Mr Sheppard, February 2017
“Fantastic apartment in a lovely village setting”
This apartment is beautiful! Well-furnished, very well equipped and very comfortable. The rooms are all a good size, the kitchen especially is a well organised space. The apartment is well-placed for exploring the region - by car or by train, as it is close to the station. We went to Edinburgh on the train so that we had no worries driving or looking for parking in a place we did not know well. We loved Aberdour itself and walked around the coast road...beautiful views! We plan to return next year as we enjoyed our stay so much.- Doreen R, October 2016
“Absolutely brilliant time had by all.”
Gorgeous and comfortable apartment. Location was fab as well. Would definitely recommend booking to anyone.- Ms Smithdale, August 2016
“The property is very central in Aberdour.”
The village itself is enchanting with an interesting history and lovely beach close by. It is within easy access of Edinburgh across the Bridge, the Fife Coastal Path or to the lochs and mountains further north. We would definitely like to come again!- Mrs Hicks, July 2016
“We loved the town and the location!”
We would highly recommend this place!- Dr Watjus, July 2016

About the location
Edinburgh 18 miles; Stirling 30 miles; St Andrews 36 miles; Loch Leven 14 miles.
The historic coastal village of Aberdour sits across the Firth of Forth from Edinburgh with its main street just inland and connected by narrow lanes to the coastal part of the village. Originally built up around the harbour where the Dour Burn runs into the River Forth, the village was essentially in fact two: Wester Aberdour and Easter Aberdour, however the connection was made with the coming of the railway at the end of the 19th century. What remains of Aberdour Castle is one of the oldest surviving stone castles in Scotland dating from the 12th century. Much added to over the centuries by the Douglases, the site is now managed by Historic Scotland and visitors can enjoy the walled garden and terraces and the distinctive beehive shaped dovecot. Known by the Victorians as the Fife Riviera, the secluded Silver Sands and Black Sands beaches have always been favourites and remain so to this day. The village holds a popular annual festival in late July and early August, including cultural and musical highlights, as well as a regatta and a run. With many lovely walks and a golf course, as well as excellent train links to both Edinburgh and further north into Fife, Aberdour remains an attractive and excellently located getaway destination.
Note: No children under the age of 7, including infants and babes-in-arms.
