Comfortable, three bedroom detached house in a historic village setting - Edinburgh home swap

Historic village just outside Edinburgh. Comfortable, three bedroom detached house in a peaceful village setting, with the world famous Rosslyn Chapel (as featured in "The Da Vinci Code" film and book), as well as a romantic Scottish castle and a 700 year old battlefield site in the village too. Lovely field and hill views from the bedroom.

We have a sociable cat called Harry, who would like to stay at home with you while we are away, if you can please feed him. Car exchange offered - a Vauxhall (Opel) Astra.

About the location

Roslin has a small supermarket, a post office, a pharmacy, Dolly`s coffee shop, dentist, doctor, library, beauty salon and a hotel with a great restaurant and beer garden. Less than 10 minutes drive to Straiton retail park with IKEA, Costco, two large supermarkets and many other high street stores.

Ideal base for touring Scotland and the north of England. Very close to the Scottish capital city of Edinburgh - one of the most beautiful cities in the world, which each August hosts the Edinburgh International Festival of the Arts, and the Military Tattoo at Edinburgh Castle.

In December, there is a Winter Wonderland in the city and many events surrounding Edinburgh`s Hogmanay - the 2nd biggest New Year festival in the World.

It is only a 30 minute drive to the white-sand east coast beaches, and an easy hour and a quarter drive to the spectacular mountain and loch scenery of the Scottish Highlands.
