We stayed 7 night in the Garden Apartment at Pilrig House in May. It was lovely and so peaceful and quiet after our previous busy two weeks travelling in London and Edinburgh area. We found this historical home (Robert Louis Stevenson family - built in 1638) on the website and it was exactly as shown. The apartment was so spacious,... More

We were able to stay at Pilrig house for a few nights and had a wonderful and peaceful time. Phillip gave us more than enough information to get the lay of the land and we loved our time exploring Edinburgh. The room had everything we needed and is convenient to grab a cab and get to anywhere we needed to... More

We did our research and found this gem on our own. What a stroke of luck. The House is an historical site built in 1638 and has ties to the Balfour's and Robert Louis Balfour Stevenson (author of Treasure Island and Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde). Our Scottish hosts Debbie and Philip could not have been more gracious and accommodating.... More

We stayed in the Garden Apartment which was absolutely beautiful - had everything we needed at top quality standard and maintained to perfection. The owners, Debbie and Philip, were so welcoming and informative - nothing was... More

Travelled to Scotland in August 2015. Stayed at Pilrig House for a week and enjoyed every minute. The Garden apartment was exactly as advertised. It was beautiful, very clean, well appointed, and very quiet. I really didn't want to leave. Debbie was an exceptional host. She made every effort to make certain that I was comfortable and settled, and even... More

My wife found this wonderful place online. The many many photos depicted a promising looking self catering apartment. All the reviews were positive with most giving high marks. We booked the Park Apartment for 9 days. Upon arrival, Phillip checked us in. Everything you see in their photo gallery is there. Plus everything you forgot. Then there was fresh fruit,... More

We only met Phillip but he was great to chat with & very helpful. Pulpit House is very cosy & comfortable; good for cooking ( with lots of herbs spices& utensils) as take away from Scottish diners is dire! All you really need is available & although we were here in summer, those 3 days are over! We can imagine... More

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...
