A beautifully presented traditional family house situated in a stunning elevated position overlooking the Firth of Forth


Tigh-Na-Mara sits in an elevated position with awe-inspiring views to the east over the estuary of the Firth of Forth and towards East Lothian and Fife. It is very conveniently positioned for commuting to Edinburgh, Dunfermline, Perth and even to Glasgow. The junction to the M90 is about a mile away with the opening of the Queensferry Crossing (new bridge) scheduled for 2016.

The village railway station is on the Edinburgh and Fife Circle line, with journey times of about 17 minutes to Edinburgh Haymarket, 25 minutes to Edinburgh Waverley and 10 minutes to South Gyle. Main line connections are available at nearby Inverkeithing, and there are Park and Ride facilities at both Inverkeithing and Ferrytoll. Edinburgh International Airport is within about 11 miles and the Central Belt motorway network is within easy reach.

North Queensferry is a peaceful village offering a range of amenities which include a primary school, convenience store, several hotels, restaurants including The Wee Restaurant which has a Michelin star, and public houses. Nearby Dunfermline and Inverkeithing provide secondary schooling and a wide range of retail, business and leisure facilities. There is a school bus service from North Queensferry for Mary Erskine and Stewart's Melville schools, which is used by several local residents.

The Fife Coastal Path nearby is ideal for walkers and runners. The North Queensferry Boat Club is a haven for the sailing set and golfers are also well catered for with a number of golf courses in the surrounding area, the nearest being at Aberdour and Pitreavie.



Tigh-Na-Mara is a wonderful traditional family house dating back to approximately 1910. The house is situated at the top of Ferryhills Road in North Queensferry and benefits from superb views to the east down the estuary of the Firth of Forth. The accommodation is extremely well presented and features an abundance of traditional character throughout.

A flagstone path leads from the garage and parking area past the front of Tigh-Na-Mara and to the charming entrance portico which has character brick archways. A front door with fanlight over leads into the entrance porch which is fitted with full height cloak cupboard. A double partially glazed inner door and fanlight over leads into the main entrance hall. The principal ground floor accommodation is all set off here.

The kitchen features a range of fitted base and wall units with granite work surfaces and an integrated Canon range cooker with six hobs and a warming plate over. Other integrated appliances include a dishwasher and a free-standing American-style LG fridge-freezer which is also included in the sale. There is an integrated double sink set in front of the window which has views over the rear garden. The pantry cupboard is fully shelved and also features a fitted freezer. A door from the kitchen leads into the utility room. This is plumbed for a washing machine, dishwasher and tumble dryer, and has a range of fitted units and storage cupboards. A door from here leads out to the side of the house.

The dining room is set off the main entrance hall and has large bay window with views towards the Firth of Forth. It also has an open fireplace with marble surround and timber mantle as well as decorative internal windows with a door leading into a separate drinks room. The adjacent drawing room is superb and has a wonderful range of traditional features. These include decorative cornicing, a gas fireplace with decorative iron inset and tiled surround with large timber mantlepiece as well as double doors which open it up into the entrance hall. Again, there are stunning easterly views provided through the bay window. A door from the drawing room leads into a TV room and a reading room beyond which has a door out to the north garden. The sitting room is also approached from the entrance hall and has fitted book shelves as well as a multi-fuel stove which operates as an auxiliary system heating four additional radiators in the bedrooms upstairs. Glass double doors lead into the conservatory which overlooks the rear garden with doors leading out onto the terrace. A further door from the sitting room leads into the workshop with fitted work bench and storage cupboards.

From the entrance hall a staircase with decorative balustrades leads up to the first floor landing. The landing is provided with ample natural light thanks to the large skylight above. The master bedroom offers views of the Firth of Forth towards Edinburgh with East Lothian beyond. It also has two fitted wardrobes as well as an en suite bathroom with twin wash hand basins, traditional style WC, cast iron roll top bath with shower attachment and separate shower cubicle. There are a further four double bedrooms, two of which have en suite shower rooms. The family bathroom is at the end of the landing through an archway and has a WC, wash hand basin, bath and separate shower cubicle.

The staircase continues up to the second floor. At the top of the stairs there is good attic space and a linen cupboard. A door leads into the magnificent home office (which could also be used as a bedroom). It has panoramic views over the Firth of Forth to the east, and the gardens to the west. Exposed timber beams and full height windows give it fantastic character. Glazed double doors off lead onto the roof terrace which offers excellent space for outdoor entertaining with views to the west towards the Ochil Hills and over the neighbouring countryside. At the end of the room a door leads into further attic space which could be converted into a further en suite bathroom.


Tigh-Na-Mara sits in beautifully presented mature gardens. The house is approached through stone pillars with electric gates which lead to the parking area and there is access to the large garage which has room for four cars. There is a separate area for storing logs and a trailer. Stone steps lead through terraced flower beds and up to the front garden. This is principally laid to lawn but surrounded by well-stocked borders featuring a range of mature shrubs and trees.

The rear garden is also principally laid to lawn and offers ample privacy thanks to hedges and stone walls. Again there are well-stocked flower beds and mature trees. There is an excellent range of outbuildings including a dog kennel, a garden shed and a large brick-built garden store with adjacent wood store and coal bunker.



Mains water, gas, drainage and electricity. The central heating is provided by a mains gas-fired boiler and an auxiliary multi-fuel stove in the sitting room which provides heat to four additional radiators in the bedrooms.
