Our home is in the beautiful town of St Andrews, which has world class golf courses and is home to Scotland's oldest university. Our home is in walking distance to the towns harbour, two beautiful beaches, and its town centre.

By downloading the free Mediaeval St Andrews App, you can explore the towns rich history on foot, included the Castle and Cathedral to name but two. St Andrews has a good variety of tourist attractions including, a botanical garden, museums, parks, along with the local Byre Theatre, and Cinema.

There are lots of lovely places to eat and drink and the town center hosts a variety of shops. North-east Fife is very picturesque and there are beautiful fishing villages along its coast. Just outside St Andrews, with good bus links, is Leuchars Train station. By train or bus you could explore Scotland's Capital, Edinburgh (approximately 1 hour train journey, with free Museums) along with many more interesting destinations.
