This contemporary studio is beautifully set in South Queensferry with the famous Forth Bridges to the front and scenic railway trail to the rear.

Architecturally designed it offers the style of a boutique hotel with the convenience of self catering and is ideally suited to accommodate a couple or young family.

The turf (sedum) roof and design, helps the studio to nestle into the hillside and blend with the terraced gardens it overlooks.

Whilst holding a position that allows stunning panoramic views, it is secluded from the road above and only reveals its garden, deck and expansive glass front once you have descended the stone stairs from Stoney Croft Road that lead to 'The Nook'.

Living Area - Entirely glass fronted, with stunning views past the raised deck to the forth, this area doubles as both living and sleeping space.

While there is adequate space to sit on the sofa and relax, etc. clever design allows the sprung double bed to almost vanish substantially increasing the usable space, should it be required (perhaps for formal dining).

There is also a TV/DVD player and a cupboard with space for storing luggage or hanging clothes.

Kitchenette - The well-equipped kitchen makes the most of the space incorporating a fridge, 3 ring induction hob, sink, oak worktops, full size oven, microwave and storage for the adequate crockery/pans provided.

Glimpses of sky through the ribbon of glass (that appears to support the entire roof) are particularly attractive here.

Bunk Room - No space is wasted and this is especially the case here, where bespoke bunks provide beds for two.

While the full height slot window provides glimpses of the views, time awake should be spent in the main living space or sampling some of the many activities on offer.

South Queensferry is located immediately beside the Forth Road Bridge which is well sign posted from all major routes. The town has its own station a 10 minute walk from 'The Nook' although the station is called 'Dalmeny'. The Airport is only about 4 miles away. Once in South Queensferry the Nook is located, behind the cobbled high street with its picturesque terraces, on Stoney Croft Road. This is a small dead end road that is accessed half way up 'the loan' which runs steeply down towards the sea at the west end of the cobbled high street. See map.
