There are many highly rated courses within easy reach including a plethora of top courses in and around St. Andrews including the Old Course which regularly hosts the British Open. Challenging fishing and shooting may be taken locally with the wide open spaces of the Lomond Hills and several lovely beaches including St. Andrews, Tentsmuir, Kingsbarns, Crail and Elie all also within range. In terms of day trips there are a number of National Trust for Scotland properties in the area including Falkland Palace, Hill of Tarvit and Kellie Castle while the pretty fishing villages of Fife's East Neuk are only a short drive to the south.
Good state schooling is available locally with private schooling being provided at St. Leonards in St. Andrews, along with the High School of Dundee. There are railway stations in Leuchars, Cupar, Ladybank and Markinch with Edinburgh airport just under an hour to the south.
