The Fife region
Fife is the smallest of Scotland's regions, yet it provides the visitor with no shortage of things to do! Whether you are interested in history, culture, cuisine, sport or pure relaxation, there is something in Fife for all.
In Fife you will find some of the country's best kept beaches, Scotland's oldest university town and the worlds 'home of golf' in St Andrews, the delightful East Neuk fishing villages including Elie, St Monans, Pittenweem and Crail.
The town of Anstruther (which includes Cellardyke) has a wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants. The area is well served with excellent eating places to suit every budget and taste.
Anstruther is home to the Scottish Fisheries Museum and, from the harbour, boat trips can be taken for sea angling or sightseeing to various areas of interest such as the Isle of May, a famous nature reserve where you can see puffins!
The area is renowned for attracting artists and musicians with open studio and musical events happening throughout the year.
For the more active there are the Tennis Courts, Elie Watersports Centre (sailing and generally messing about on the water) and the East Neuk Outdoors Centre (canoeing, abseiling etc) and there are also links directly into the Fife Coastal path offering walking opportunities across a wider area.
For the keen golfer, Fife is the home of golf and the Anstruther golf course voted toughest par 3 in the UK by Todays Golfer in September 2007. If that’s not enough there are another 45 courses to choose from including the infamous “Old Course” at St Andrews which is only a short drive away.
Whilst it may be difficult to book a tee time on the “Old Course”, there is a selection of other courses in St Andrews itself with several other highly challenging options on the outskirts of the town and the surrounding villages.

"Lovely warm, snug weekend getaway"
Beautifully designed and decorated house right by the sea in picturesque fishing village close to the gorgeous town of St Andrews. Good bracing walks in the sea air followed by cosy meals in the house or in the various pubs. Very relaxing and comfortable.

""Well" worth it."
Stayed here as a group of 9 family members. Loads of room 5 bedrooms, 3 bath/shower rooms, spacious lounge and huge kitchen area. Everything you need is in the house and the location is excellent, although car parking could be a problem at the front of the house.
We were a mixed group of parents, children and grandad. We were not falling over each other, the only problem was Grandad getting lost in the house, it's an age thing! The house is an easy ealk to the shops at Anstruther harbour and the coastal path at both ends. It also has the unique features of the well and bakers oven in the lounge. Overall excellent.
Thank you for your very positive review.
