There is ample parking for 2 cars at the front of the cottage. We are happy to accept 1 well behaved dog. It is a perfect location for exploring the quaint fishing villages of The East Neuk, the historic town of St. Andrews and the scenic coastline of Fife. The nearby villages of Crail and Anstruther are wonderful for exploring, with their picturesque harbours, great shopping, pubs/restaurants and tourist attractions. Boat trips from Anstruther to The Isle of May are most popular.More

About the neighbourhood
Take time to explore the beautiful coastline, either on a scenic drive through all the fishing villages, or why not try the Fife Coastal Walking Path. Treat yourself at the famous Anstruther Fish Bar, or why not take a day trip by boat to the Isle of May to see puffins, seals and numerous other sea birds. How about a day out at the beach at the West Sands at St. Andrews and recreate your own Chariots of Fire experience. Take the children to The Aquarium at St. Andrews for a fun day out or visit The Scottish Deer Centre. So much to see and enjoy for all your friends and family.
