Decided to stay at this hotel as we hadn't visited the area before and were looking for a midweek break. We were given a good price for the stay, and a lovely bedroom with a view over the Firth of Forth towards the iconic Forth Bridge.

My wife, sister-in-law, brother-in-law and my wife's cousin and his wife have spent a wonderful 2 nights in the Elgin Hotel, Charlestown, near Dunfermline. The rooms were very clean and were what we expected from a hotel of it's standing. We only had breakfast in the hotel. However, it was just what we wanted, the helpings were more than filling,...

Edinburgh, Dunfermaline and Loch Levin are close by. loch Levin is a good day out - there is a boat trip on the loch to a small island with a castle where Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned and later...
