Clatto Broomside enjoys a lovely private situation on the south-eastern edge of Blebocraigs, surrounded by beautiful countryside and just 5 miles to the west of St Andrews. The historic and cosmopolitan university town is recognised worldwide as the Home of Golf and has an excellent range of shops, services and facilities. Cupar (5 miles) is also well-served by shops and professional services as well as a railway station on the main East Coast line, with regular connections south to Edinburgh and north to Dundee/Aberdeen. The glorious Fife countryside that surrounds Blebocraigs is home to an array of wildlife, and for the outdoor enthusiast offers easy access to a wide variety of recreational pursuits including walking, cycling, riding and golf. Many highly regarded courses are within easy reach, including the Old Course at St Andrews, regular venue for the Open Championship which is next due to visit in 2021 for its 150th anniversary.
The thriving city of Dundee is some 13 miles to the north with Edinburgh just over an hour to the south. Fife’s quaint East Neuk, with its picturesque fishing villages, such as Anstruther, Pittenweem and St Monans, and its charming varied coastline, is also easily accessible from Blebocraigs.
In terms of days out, there are good sandy beaches at St Andrews, Kingsbarns, Tentsmuir and Elie, along with a number of popular National Trust for Scotland properties including Kellie Castle, Hill of Tarvit and Falkland Palace.
