St. Andrews is a flourishing university town which offers residents a superb mix of amenities and facilities and is also renowned worldwide as the “Home of Golf”. The resurgent city of Dundee is some thirteen miles to the north with Edinburgh just over an hour to the south. Fife’s pretty East Neuk is easily accessible from St. Andrews with its quaint picturesque fishing villages such as Anstruther, Pittenweem and Crail as well as its charming and varied coastline. Fife’s bustling county market town of Cupar is about ten miles to the west.
The delightful picture postcard countryside and coastline around St. Andrews is perhaps the finest that Fife has to offer making it the ideal setting for the outdoor enthusiast and also home to an array of wildlife. There are a host of recreational opportunities available including walking, cycling, riding, sailing and of course golf with the Old Course regularly hosting the Open Championship. Along with the several highly rated courses in St. Andrews itself there are many other excellent courses in the immediate vicinity including Crail, Elie, Lundin Links, Leven, Kingsbarns and Ladybank.
