About Sacha Thirkill

Born and bred in Edinburgh, I still live there with my husband, whom I met in Greece, and our 2 sons. I've travelled around but always planned to settle in my home city.

Sacha Thirkill purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Sacha Thirkill chose Burntisland

I love Edinburgh but always enjoyed childhood holidays across the Firth of Forth to the coastal town of Burntisland - it's a perfect location to escape the hussle bussle of the city but stay within easy reach of it! It's also a great base for exploring the beautiful East Neuk of Fife and St Andrews.

What makes this apartment unique

It has the space and comfort of a modern home but is housed in a stone building hundreds of years old. All amenities and stunning mountain and coastal views are on the doorstep yet it offers direct public transport links to Edinburgh in the south and Dundee in the north.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We found this property to be very accurate in its description of location, layout and facilities. It was very central for shopping amenities, visiting the Fife coast and in our personal needs to visit family in and around Dunfermline.

The property was extremely clean and well maintained. It was situated in a very quiet neighbourhood.

The customer service was excellent, any queries we had were dealt with immediately and satisfactorily.

We would have no hesitation in recommending this property to family and friends alike. We hope to avail ourselves of this property in the future.

For an excellent meal just a few miles away, the restaurant at Pettycur Bay Holiday park is very good.

This Royal Burgh owes its existence to a natural harbour probably used originally in prehistoric times. It is claimed that the invading Romans, under Agricola, landed here and established it as a naval base around AD85. In the 12th century the Castle of Rossend was built as the residence of the Abbots of Dunfermline. St Columba's Church, built in 1594, is the oldest post-Reformation kirk still in regular use and both historically and architecturally is something all visitors should see. In the local library, which was gifted in 1906 by Andrew Carnegie, there is a small display of the town's history. In many parts of Fife there are hills which are the remnants of volcanic plugs and one such hill, just inland from the town, is 'The Binn'. Walk to the top you will have excellent views over to Edinburgh and up to the Bridges

Golf: Vast choice of golf courses in the vicinity - with Burntisland Golf Course & Kinghorn Golf Course on the doorstep - the oldest & most famous courses in the world are less than an hour away, in St Andrews.

Ideal for What We Needed!

  • 5 of 5

This is a clean, efficient and tidy 1 bedroom flat. Walkable to train, shops and seaside. Bonus of dedicated parking spot, too--this was so appreciated! Working with Sacha was very easy beforehand and via text once we had arrived. Would definitely recommend!

Quiet and Convenient

  • 4 of 5

A Stones Throw was close to rail and bus lines to everywhere in Fife and Edinburgh. Cozy little flat just off High Street in quaint Burntisland. Beautiful walks and friendly people.

Our hosts were responsive but not intrusive. Great stay.

Great little property in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Excellent self contained flat 300m from the beach. Flat has everything you require, clean and tidy. The owner is very responsive and helpful. I will definitely be returning to rent this property when returning to the area to see the wild seals colony in Kirkcaldy.

Clean and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean and well-maintained. It was convenient walking distance from several decent restaurants, a couple playgrounds, beach, and train to Edinburgh. The large tub was a treat.

Photos are a bit confusing, because they are of two different apartments. Owner's website makes the distinction more clear. Internet was limited, but functional.

Owner provided a cot so that our daughter could sleep in the bedroom while we stayed in the living area. That was very helpful.
