My girlfriend and I travelled up to Markinch for the weekend to attend a wedding at the nearby Balbirnie House. Byam, our host met us from the train and was very friendly and welcoming. We found the flat to be spacious and comfortable and although we didn't do any cooking, the kitchen was well equipped if a touch rustic. It is ideally placed for the station and the nearby high-street has a couple of pubs and a small Co-op.We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this as a low cost alternative to nearby hotels and would certainly stay here again if we were ever in the area.

We stayed for two nights and found the flat really easy to get to with local transport. As we were staying for a wedding, it was an ideal location to travel from, again with local transport. There are places to eat and drink near by as well as a co-op. The flat itself was perfect for us - easy to find everything we needed and a comfortable stay. Byam was really quick to respond to us when we needed any help. Thank you for letting us stay at your flat and for your flexibility with check-in and out times. Overall a great stay and host!

A great base for exploring Fife, and a great place for a short weekend break. Communication throughout was excellent and immediate, and helpful information was found in a folder upon arrival. The flat is almost adjacent to the railway station, with great transport links south to Edinburgh. Markinch itself is a nice, quiet town and we are keen to return and explore more. The house was clean and tidy, but it also has character and personality which would make any significant time spent inside (given weather etc) enjoyable and fun. Will likely return in the future!

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! Byam's comfortable flat is right next to the train station in Markinch. Train trips to Edinburgh and the surrounding area were a breeze and made everything so accessible. We came in late on the train on Thursday evening, but his directions on how to get the key etc. were perfect, and we had no trouble getting into the flat and getting comfortable. A nice bottle of wine was awaiting us when we got there. There is a grocery store, restaurant and a pub within walking distance. If you stay here, go to Jamie's Bar and meet some very nice and helpful people!!! Although we did not meet Byam, he was always accessible via email (we did not have a phone) and answered very quickly. A great place to stay and we had a memorable time in Markinch.

Would recommend staying here if visiting Fife. Very central location, very close to station. Byam's flat is very comfortable, and a great place to stay.

Relaxing place to stay with literally two minute walk to train station. Great host, good communication, nice flat with it's own style. Would definitely consider another stay :-)
