Townhouse | 7 bedrooms | sleeps 19
If you are thinking about holidaying in Scotland, let Cameron House be your base camp for your trip of a lifetime. Cameron House is your home away from home.
This B listed 18th century Georgian town house benefits from spacious rooms and still retains many of its original features.
Accommodation comprises hall, lounge, dining room, dining kitchen, utility area with separate toilet and shower room, seven bedrooms, bathroom and parking for four cars. Cameron House can sleep up to 19 people.
Adele and Craig are always close at hand to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
Cameron House offers bright spacious accommodation, perfect for larger families, groups of friends or golfers looking for accommodation that houses everybody under the one roof.
We are within 30 miles of over 50 golf courses, so ideally located for the golfing enthusiasts.
Gleneagles, St Andrews, Edinburgh, Dundee, Perth, Fife and Central Scotland are all within 30 minutes to an hour and a half drive from Cameron House taking you through some of the most beautiful and diverse countryside in Scotland.
The closest historical buildings include Balvaird Castle, which is a particularly fine and complete example of a traditional late medieval Scottish tower house, built around the year 1500 and Falkland Palace, which is a superb tourist attraction and well worth a visit. Both these attractions are no more than 3 miles away. Also, sitting on an island within Loch Leven, is the beautifully set Lochleven Castle which played host to the captive Mary Queen of Scots before fleeing to England. The castle is easily accessible by a regular boat service that only takes 10 minutes.
Loch Leven is also the location of a heritage trail that runs 12.5 km round the north side Scotland's largest lowland loch. The trail provides excellent access to the lochside for walkers, cyclists and wheelchair users.
Well behaved pets are more than welcome and there are great walks from the back of the property onto The Howe Of Fife and to the Lomond Hills just above Falkland.

The Fife region
Ancestral home of the Scottish monarchs, world famous for its golf and with some of Scotland's best scenic attractions, the Kingdom of Fife is a proud region with its own distinct identity.
The historic village of Falkland with its impressive ruined palace is only 5km away from Cameron House.
To the east lie some beautiful rocky bays and sandy beaches on which scenes from the film 'Chariots of Fire' were shot. Fishing still has a role here but ultimately it is to St Andrews, Scotland's oldest university town and the home of the world-famous Royal and Ancient golf club that most visitors are drawn.
South of St Andrews the tiny stone harbours of the fishing villages of the East Neuk - Anstruther, Crail, St Monans and Pittenweem - are an undeniably appealing extension to any visit to this part of Fife.
Home to Scotland's capital for six centuries, Fife has always been at the heart of the nation's history, evidence of which can still be found in its wealth of castles, cathedrals, and places of historic interest.
The Kingdom of Fife is also known throughout the world as the Home of Golf and boasts more than forty courses, from the famed fairways of St Andrews and several traditional seaside links to beautifully landscaped parkland and heathland courses suitable for golfers of all levels.
The Fife coastline is a very special environment which has distinctive rock formations, delicate flora and a varied wildlife. Long sections of the Fife Coastal Path up to Crail can now be enjoyed by recreational and serious walkers. There is a variety of linear and circular routes which have been graded and waymarked. For nature lovers, the path is a real walk on the wild side. Look out for grey seals and, in summer, basking sharks and dolphins. The offshore islands of Inchcolm and Inchkeith are home to thousands of seabirds, with vast numbers of puffins found on the Isle of May.
Located 7 miles west of Cupar, and 4 miles south of Newburgh, Auchtermuchty was famed in ancient times for its wild boar and was once the site of a Roman camp. Its name however comes from Gaelic, referring to the large population of wild boar in the surrounding swamps and woods that were hunted.
Today the streets have an olde-worlde feel, with thatched roofs, crow-stepped gables and the red pantile roofs characteristic of the towns and villages throughout Fife.

"Find somewhere else - shoddy (see pictures)"
It's a shame about this place, the building has a lot of potential, though it falls short through lots of shoddy workmanship, and poor upkeep. It's actually quite insulting that the owners t… More

Thank you for your review.........it is always good to get feedback so that we can try and offer an enjoyable experience to the wide variety of different families and groups that have stayed at Cameron House.
Again, we can only apologise that we didn't have Cameron House 100% ready for entry for you, we made a mistake on your arrival date, which has never happened before.
We are obviously very sorry to hear that your personal overall opinion of Cameron House is not a good one. We agree that the shower downstairs does not have a high ceiling but just in case someone reading this review is under the impression that the shower is not able to be used by tall people, we would like to clarify that this is not the case. The cleaning issues that you mentioned would have been addressed if we had not made the mistake on your date of entry. Also sorry to hear that your personal opinion was that some jobs were "bodge" and there was general sloppiness........this is something that we would not agree with. Cameron House is not a new house, it is a listed 18th Century building and in our opinion it has a lot of character about it. We think it unfair for you to say "don't go to Cameron"
