“Wonderful cottage”
Reviewed May 13, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We had an amazing stay at this lovely cottage. This cottage is super well equipped- everything we looked for we found. The garden in just a paved area, but we still managed to sit out there in the sunshine (I know - there was sunshine in Scotland!) and the dog was super happy anyhow with all the amazing beautiful walks near by.
Thank you so much for a lovely holiday!

“Excellent Place”
Reviewed November 3, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Upper Largo is a really pretty village on the South Coast of Fife. The inhabitants are very charming and helpful..
The cottage is located in the shadow of the elevated church and is warm and inviting. It is decorated to a very high standard with wooden flooring and an open fire if required. However it was so cosy, we did not use this facility.
The kitchen is well appointed with washer drier, fridge, cooking hob, oven and all the things you would need to enjoy your stay.
It takes approximately 15 minutes to walk to the beach and the Fife Coastal Path, from which the views are awesome. We saw guillemots, stone-turners, plovers, seals, and many more species of seabird during our stay here. We walked from Leven to Crail in 4 stages, using the frequent local bus service to reach the starting points and collect us from the end points.
The local pub is well run and the food is excellent.
Edinburgh can be reached within 2 hours on an hourly bus service.
Upper Largo and Kirkside Cottage are worthy of consideration if you are thinking of a visit to this area.
The hosts are charming and were on hand for any help required.. They left us with a welcoming gift of excellent fruit cake and home made plum jam. It was delicious.
We intend to return to Kirkside in the future.

“Lovely base for a great holiday”
Reviewed August 12, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

From the minute we drove up to park outside the cottage we could see it was very special;. Beautifully tended hanging baskets and tubs decorate the front and once inside we found fresh flowers and houseplants decorating the rooms. A lovely (and very welcome) touch was the home made cake and jam that we found in the kitchen along with a bottle of wine.
The cottage is around a 15 minute walk from the beach at Lower Largo from where you can also access the Fife Coastal Path which we enjoyed exploring.
The beds were very comfy and the cottage was clean and cosy with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable.

“First holiday in Scotland, but not the last”
Reviewed August 15, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My wife, daughter and I, plus our border collies had a very enjoyable stay. Everything was provided for an enjoyable holiday. We have relatively simple requirements, in that the accommodation needs to be clean and comfy, with a washing machine / dryer, fridge / freezer, ideally a dishwasher, and a decent shower. Kirkside ticked all of these boxes. Upper Largo itself I guess is a typical small coastal village. There are no shops, which is not insurmountable, and has a decent pub in the Largo Hotel.
