Our daughter was at University in St Andrews between 2006 and 2010. When we first arrived we did not know how busy a place St Andrews was and, as we had not booked anywhere, Cupar was the nearest place we could find accommodation. As we knew we'd be backwards and forwards several time a year we looked on the internet and found Little Carron Cottage and when we stayed for the first time we knew we had found an absolute gem. We have not considered staying anywhere else since.
Linda and Jim are so welcoming and accommodating. Nothing is too much trouble. It has been a great pleasure knowing them for this past 8 years. We have just returned from Little Carron Cottage after celebrating our daughter's wedding in St Andrews and we were treated to the same first-rate accommodation that we experienced during Philippa's time at University.
We always stay in the Swilcan Suite because of the great flexibility it offers. The Eden suite is next to the Swilcan with a connecting door which can be used for family groups. Both suites are absolutely lovely - spotlessly clean, really comfortable and surrounded by beautiful gardens.
There is access to a private patio from the Eden Suite, where we sat and enjoyed the birdlife, squirrel and surroundings. My son stayed in the Kiness Room and it really is as good as it looks on the photos. Breakfasts at Little Carron are simply delicious. There is just so much choice. All tastes and appetites are catered for. We can definitely recommend the cooked breakfasts. They certainly set you up for the day.
Apart from the superb accommodation, I was particularly looking forward to walking along Lade Braes into the centre of St Andrews. It's a really pleasant and quiet walk if you have the time. Takes about 20-30 minutes depending on your speed but it's like stepping out into the countryside surrounded by birdsong and the sound of the burn and the wind in the trees.
Thank you so much Linda and Jim for making our times in St Andrews, and our very happy celebration just recently, so wonderful! You haven't seen the last of us!!
