    It was a very nice accomodation, idyllically surrounded by a large area of meadows and trees ( would have been wonderful for our dog, who unfortunately had died shortly before this holidays). Everything you needed was there - especially wonderful was the large bed with a very good mattress and the Chesterfield sofa, on which you could easily chill out reading, talking and watching TV. My wife suffers from asthma - she sometimes had to use her inhalator, as this very old cottage had a very small amount of humidity in it. I didn't notice anything of it. Very nice host family, who helped quickly with explanation as well as with information about the environment.

About the location


Kinross 5 miles; Stirling 19 miles; Edinburgh 25 miles; St Andrews 30 miles.

The name 'Fossoway' is thought to originate from the Gaelic fasach-fheidh" meaning "The Desert of the Deer" and legend has it that a coven of witches used to meet in the church yard in the 17th century and 11 were burned at the stake in the village of Crook of Devon. Nearby is Loch Leven with its dramatic setting with the town of Kinross set on its shores. It is the largest loch in lowland Scotland and one of the most important sites for waterfowl in Britain with a popular RSPB centre. Famous as the place Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned, the loch is also renowned for Loch Leven’s Larder, a restaurant and delicatessen rich in local produce. The 8 mile path around Loch Leven can be walked in its entirety or in sections, stopping off at Loch Leven’s Larder. Golfers are well catered with a number of local courses and those found at Gleneagles and St Andrews.
