About the neighbourhood
Families will love this lovely holiday cottage with the beach just through the garden gate. Enjoy the wildlife, golf and many activities locally. The enclosed garden overlooks the beach, and from your doorstep you can enjoy leisurely walks along the beach, or explore this attractive village and its pretty harbour. This is the birthplace of Alexander Selkirk whose story of his shipwreck off the coast of Chile provided Daniel Defoe was the inspiration to write Robinson Crusoe, and whose statue is in the village. There is a local store, craft shop, local pub and restaurant, sailing club and Lundin Links Golf Club. There is a great selection of golf courses in the area, and the championship courses of St Andrews are only 11 miles away.
Getting around
Local buses go between St Andrews to Leven and onwards to Glasgow. The closest train stations are Markinch and Cupar for rail links to Dundee, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Glasgow
