About Lisa Rattray

David and Lisa originally from Fife and Cumbria worked for many years in London’s musical higher education. Having enjoyed various stays in Fife they were delighted in 2009 to acquire the Wemyss cottage finding it the perfect bolt-hole, travelling there with their two children whenever possible, the serene setting providing the perfect antidote to city life, no matter the season. Having discovering a real affection for the area they recently relocated to a leafy part of nearby Kirckcaldy. It was decided to retain the cottage for visiting acquaintances and to share through Owners Direct.

Lisa Rattray purchased this cottage in 2010

Lovely house

  • 4 of 5

House is in a beautiful location. Very clean, warm and well equipped with everything you might need. Thank you for the grocery pack - especially the milk. Would absolutely recommend the local cafe - superb home made soup and delicious cakes

Lovely location and comfortably property

  • 4 of 5

The house location was ideal for visiting Fife. The view from the back of the house was lovely and the bottle of presecco went down a treat while relaxing on the patio. The house was clean and spacious. The kitchen was well equipped. The beds were comfortably and the black out binds allowed us to have a nice lay in on a sunny morning! We had some nice walks along the coast to Dysatt and into the village of Coaltown of Wemyss. Further afield, St Andrews is definitely worth a visit. We would certainly stay at this house again.

Excellent place to stay for all our holiday needs

  • 5 of 5

Conveniently positioned and well equipped property for a relaxing stay. Ideally placed for Edinburgh Fringe and Pittenween Arts Festival as well as wonderful,relaxing walks on local beaches. The property caters for all being well equipped for a family. Perhaps a small instruction book for some equipment might be beneficial. I would recommend West Wemyss and this property for a very relaxing stay.

Perfect peaceful get-away in charming village

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to spend a few days away from city life. The cottage was spotlessly clean and very well appointed with top quality appliances, quality bedding, comfortable furnishings and reliable wifi. It has stunning views out the back (from the kitchen, living room and master bedroom) over the Bay which looked like the Mediterranean in the evening! The owners were extremely helpful. There's a lovely coastal path, harbour and pretty village to explore too. I can't recommend it highly enough!
