The thriving city of Dundee is also within comfortable commuting distance and Edinburgh is less than a one hour drive to the south.
The area around Montrave comprises a breath-taking mix of farmland, coastline, hill and river. The result is home to an array of wildlife and provides a fine choice for the outdoor enthusiast with walking, riding, cycling, sailing and of course golf all readily available. Shooting and fishing may be taken locally with some fine pheasant shooting nearby. The Fife Hunt is the most northerly pack of fox hounds in the UK and there are many opportunities for riding with pony clubs for the younger enthusiasts. There is racing and polo at Scone outside Perth which is also the venue for the annual Scottish Game Fair.
