Ingothill House is located in the village of Kennoway in central Fife. The village has a good range of local shops and a primary school. Nearby Glenrothes, Kirkcaldy, Leven and Cupar are all easily accessed and between them provide a comprehensive offering of amenities and facilities. The ancient and historic university town of St. Andrews, known world-wide as the “Home of Golf” is less than a twenty minute drive to the north east with Edinburgh about an hour to the south. The village offers easy access to some lovely countryside, ideal for the outdoor enthusiast. There is scope for walking, cycling, sailing and riding in the surrounding area. It is perhaps golf for which Fife is best known however with numerous top quality courses in the area including the world renowned Old Course at St. Andrews which regularly hosts the Open Championship – the next visit being in 2021 for the event’s 150th anniversary. There are several excellent beaches in the area such as Elie, St. Andrews, Kingsbarns and Tentsmuir whilst the vast open spaces of the Lomond Hills are within comfortable reach and offer considerable scope. In terms of visitor attractions the area is well served by a number of National Trust for Scotland properties including Kellie Castle, Falkland Palace and Hill of Tarvit. State schooling is available locally with independent schooling on hand at St. Leonards in St. Andrews and also Dundee High School. There are railway stations in Markinch, Kirkcaldy, Ladybank and Cupar with Edinburgh airport about an hour away by road.
Believed to date from circa 1833, Ingothill House enjoys high levels of privacy and seclusion and was formerly known as Kennoway Old Parish Manse. With a delightful symmetrical stone exterior under slate roof, the extensive accommodation is laid out over two floors.
