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.
