John McDouall Stuart View - Holiday Apartment

Works to convert explorer John McDouall Stuart's house in Dysart to a holiday apartment were completed in May 2013. If you're looking for a coastal bolt-hole with lots of history and character, John McDouall Stuart View is for you! Here you can relax and gaze out on the same seas that inspired the explorer John McDouall Stuart's desire to travel.

John McDouall Stuart was born in this house in 1815 and later emigrated ‘down under’ where he led the first expedition to cross Australia from south to north in 1862. He is a celebrated figure in Australia, where he has a 950-mile highway named after him.

John McDouall Stuart View is an ideal stopping-off point if you are en-route to the Highlands, looking for close links to Fife's world-famous golf courses, or walking the Fife Coastal Path.

The holiday apartment occupies the upper two floors of a three-storey B-listed building.  Access by an external staircase leads to a spacious living/dining area, and kitchen, with a twin bedroom and modern bathroom (with shower) on the upper level.

The apartment is comfortably furnished and benefits from stunning views across the Firth of Forth. The rooms have been decorated in keeping with the style of the building, retaining period features, such as the window shutters. There are all the modern facilities you'd expect - dishwasher, microwave, TV with DVD player, washing machine/dryer and free wifi.

The 2016 rental rates are as follows:

Low season - £284 a week

Mid season - £336 a week
