For a sensational break this summer, your ideal destination is The Kingdom of Fife. From enjoying a host of exciting visitor attractions to admiring the fantastic coastal views on one of Fife's many beaches. Be enchanted by quaint fishing villages or play a round of golf on one of the historic links courses. Whatever you choose to do here, you'll be sure to have an experience in the Kingdom of Fife that you'll never forget!

Whether you're on a family day out, a relaxing short break or a holiday packed with sports and activities, there is never a dull moment in the Kingdom of Fife. From ancient castles to cathedrals, gardens to theatres, horse riding to karting, the Kingdom of Fife is the perfect place to visit this summer.

St. Andrews

St Andrews

In spite of its small size, the picturesque royal burgh of St Andrews is famed far beyond the borders of Scotland. The seat of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club, the game's foremost authority, St Andrews is the spiritual home to golfers everywhere and over the years the famed Old Course has played host to the world's best players at many different championships. The town boasts eleven fine courses. With a course to suit every ability, regardless of experience golfers can savour the unique atmosphere of playing at the Home of Golf.

St Andrews is renowned for more than the game it gave to the world and evidence of its long and at times turbulent history can be seen everywhere. It is an ancient seat of learning, being home to Scotland's first university. Founded in 1412, the elegant, ivy-clad buildings and delightful quadrangles and gardens have seen a procession of famous graduates.

For centuries St Andrews was also at the centre of the religious life of the nation and its now ruined cathedral was once the largest in the country. At the adjacent church of St Regulus, you can climb the spiral staircase to the top of a 108-foot tower for magnificent views of the town and its surroundings. St Andrews Castle, perched on its promontory overlooking the sea, was the dramatic stage for several of the most notorious episodes of the Reformation.

"A great house in a very central location"

A lovely 2 bedroom house in a central location within walking distance of the beech, shops, sights etc. A modern light and well fitted out property with wet rooms and a raised sitting room with access out to a decked area and the garden. Sheila and Ian where very welcoming and helpful to us during our stay. We would happily recommend this property.

Thank you very much indeed for your kind and thoughtful comments

"Stunning location and property in a very special town."

Just returned from a wonderful stay in this Cottage located in the heart of St. Andrews. Sheila is a marvellous hostess and even offered to keep my luggage until the property was ready for me as I was moving out of my Hotel earlier that morning. The property is spotless, bright and airy and has everything needed for a self catering break including a lovely decking area and garden. I thoroughly recommend the Cottage. Check it out. You won't be disappointed.

"Wonderful Accommodation"

This is a really lovely property in an excellent location. It is situated within walking distance of the town centre, yet sitting in the garden on a summer's evening we could have been miles from anything. It would be easy to imagine that in winter it would take on another equally charming character. The owners, Sheila and Ian, are very welcoming and on hand if required. We cannot recommend The Whins Cottage enough.

"Home from Home Accomodation; just perfect!"

Great location being so close to the local amenities and the golf courses. The property was spotlessly clean, superbly equipped with everything anyone could need for a comfortable, relaxing stay. We even managed to enjoy a glass of wine on the decking in lovely, warm sunshine. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this property to friends and family. The owners seem to have thought of everything, making this a fabulous place to stay.

"Fantastic place"

The location of the house is ideal as everything within the town is within walking distance, as is the beach and the old & new golf courses. The house itself is 1st class in its layout, fixtures & fittings. It has everything that you could want. the adjoining properrties are very quite. The only down side is that there is no parking associated with the house, but there is limited free parking spaces a couple of minutes walk from the house.
