Torc Cottage stands in an idyllic situation off a quiet road on the edge of the sought-after small village of Craigrothie, to the south of Cupar in Fife. Craigrothie has a primary school, village hall and a bus service with regular connections to St. Andrews, Cupar and Kirkcaldy. The thriving village of Ceres is a short distance to the east and provides a good range of local shops, services and amenities together with a highly regarded primary school. A wider offering of facilities is on hand just a five minute drive to the north in Cupar, Fife’s bustling county market town, whilst a short distance to the east lies the ancient and historic university town of St. Andrews, renowned world-wide as the “Home of Golf” with a wonderful cosmopolitan mix of shops, restaurants and facilities. To the north the thriving city of Dundee and Perth are both well within comfortable driving distance and provide for all key city amenities, with Edinburgh less than a forty-five minute drive to the south.
Surrounding Craigrothie is an area of outstanding beautiful Fife countryside comprising a wonderful mix of fertile farmland, woodland, hill, stunning coastline and river. The area offers an array of wildlife and for the outdoor enthusiast provides a wide range of recreational pursuits including riding, cycling, walking, sailing and golf with many highly rated courses within easy reach including the courses at Crail, Kingsbarns, St. Andrews Bay, Elie, Leven, Lundin Links, Ladybank and the numerous fine courses in and around St. Andrews where the Old Course regularly hosts the British Open – the next visit to St. Andrews is in 2021 for the event’s 150th anniversary.
