Wow. Debbie and Phillip have created a comfortable, clean, and oh so cozy place to call home for you Scotland adventure. My mom and I stayed in May and were bowled over by the thoughtful care we received, everything from being greeted personally by Debbie to answer any questions, pretty much every restaurant menu and tourist attraction brochure imaginable, maps...

My family and I stayed at the Pilrig House for a week in June of 2015. This was our first visit to Scotland and we were simply amazed by the friendly people and incredibly comfortable accommodations. Truly, the Pilrig House became our home away from home. We typically enjoy eating out once a day or twice a day - but... More

I booked this place in the blind other than pictures on the internet and reviews, I have never had such a historical, amenity suited, with hosts that were so willing to be at our call and beckoning beyond anything I have ever had. We were treated better there than if I had been home. I am ready to go back... More

If it were possible to give the Pilrig House more than 5 stars, we would. We have travelled, extensively throughout the world, renting houses and apartments, and have never been as pleased and impressed as we were with the accommodations and hosts as we were with the Pilrig House. The only negative is that we think that our future lodgings... More

The Pilrig House Apartment is just wonderful. Gracious and very helpful hosts, lots of suggestions on things to do, places to visit. The apartment is spacious and just so comfortable I looked forward to tumbling into bed each night. It is impeccably kept, and they have put attention into everything a visitor would possibly need. There was even fresh milk... More

Pilrig House is the perfect place to stay when visiting Edinburgh. I spent 3 months in this lovely place when my son started school at the University of St Andrews. The location is great for walking into the city, but public transportation is just steps away. The house is beautiful and overlooks a Pilrig Park. The park is perfect for... More

Lovely apartment, every comfort including tea bags, coffee, delicious buttter cookies, fruit, etcetera. Philip and Debbie could not have done more to make certain we had a wonderful stay, including a tour in their car around the city and labeled maps to help us get around on our own. A nice walk to the city , but buses are extremely... More

My husband and I traveled to Scotland for the Ryder Cup in September. We booked our stay at the Pilrig House one year in advance. During that time Debbie helped me schedule a trip to the Highlands, trains into Gleneagles, and the car hire. She and her husband Phillip made our stay in Scotland the perfect trip! Our apartment was... More

My wife and I stayed at the Pilrig House during our five day visit to Edinburgh in mid September. We could not have made a better choice. The location was ideal for us and the apartment provided everything we could have needed. Debbie and Phillip are excellent managers and two of the nicest people you would ever want to meet.... More

We stayed in the Balfour apartment for a week in July so that we could visit Edinburgh and also travel to the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. The apartment was brilliant - beautifully furnished and equipped with everything you could possibly want. The location was fantastic - situated in the middle of Pilrig Park, so you wouldn't know that you were... More
