Family home by the sea; easy train link to Edinburgh home swap

Our house is a Victorian mid-terrace with lovely sunny front rooms and sea views. It's located in a quiet street overlooking the bowling green and tennis courts (you can use the courts as a visitor). We are just minutes from Kinghorn Harbour beach, which is clean and well used by families all year round. A second beach is 10 minutes walk away.
We have a comfortable and friendly home with plenty of toys and books if you're travelling with a family. Two guinea pigs if you like squeaky company but they can easily be relocated if not. Gardens at back and front. This is a fine location for a car-free swap, which would also appeal to us.

About the location

Kinghorn is a large friendly village with a good mix of basic services and great public transport links. Locally we enjoy great walks (Ecology Centre and Fife Coastal Path good starting points) with Kirkcaldy providing museum, library and shopping facilities just three miles away. Fife has a really interesting history and all sorts of interesting little pockets to explore. Edinburgh Festival and Fringe run from early August, and Edinburgh (which is good for the arts at the best of times) is absolutely buzzing. The train to Edinburgh runs half-hourly and takes 40 minutes... you can spend the day in the city and return for a peaceful walk on the beach at dusk!
