There are plenty of local events, theatre and arts, sporting activity and motor racing at the Racewall and Knockhill to enjoy. More than lots of things to do, there's plenty of peace and quiet, so you can relax in Fife's beautiful countryside and coastline, including the Lomond Hills and Aberdour's Silver Sand beach. There's a convenience store in the village and with retail and leisure parks nearby, you don't have far to go to shop, eat out, see a film or go bowling

Just 20min from Edinburgh, the Wee Hauf is a short hop to the buzz of Edinburgh, for Hogmany or the world renown Festivals, as well as providing a great base to get out and explore Scotland. Dunfermline has excellent transport links by bus and rail, and the Wee Hauf is close to J3 on the M90. In under an hour, you can be in Perth, gateway to the Highlands, visit the C.R.Mackintosh designed tearooms in Glasgow, or relax in Peebles, amongst rolling Borders hills and salmon rivers.

We like living here, come and see why!

Location description from owner

The Scotland region

The Kingdom of Fife was the ancestral home of the Scottish monarchs, the capital of Scotland for six centuries, and has always been at the hearts on the nation's history, as can be seen in its many historic buildings and ancient monuments. Royal connections abound, from the diminutive palace at Culross in the south, through the impressive ruined Renaissance palace of the Stuart kings, in the lovely village of Falkland, to St. Andrew's, where Scotland's oldest university (1410AD) was attended by Prince William .

St Andrew's is the location too for the famed fairways of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club. The Kingdom of Fife is known throughout the world as the Home of Golf and boasts more than forty courses, from traditional seaside links to beautifully landscaped parkland and heathland courses suitable for golfers of all levels.

As Fife is only fifty miles across at the widest point, none of the beautiful Fife coastline, with windswept cliffs, rocky bays and sandy beaches, is more than a short journey away. Fife is proud of its Coastal Path, with challenging sections to be enjoyed by serious walkers and cyclists. There are places too, for those just out for a stroll, on long flat beaches with the opportunity to spot grey seals and, in summer, basking sharks and dolphins.

The offshore islands are home to thousands of seabirds, and you can take boat trips to the Isle of May, see the vast numbers of that charming bird, the puffin, from Anstruther, one of a number of well-preserved villages along the coast. The tiny stone harbours of the fishing villages of the East Neuk - Anstruther, Crail, St Monans and Pittenweem - are undeniably appealing, making a visit to this part of Fife worthwhile. Their character has attracted many artists, and established Pittenweem as a premier Scottish arts festival location.

Inland, the landscape of gentle hills and small lochs provides a setting for a number of picturesque villages and towns, including Cupar, a charming market town set in rolling countryside. The town itself and the hills and hamlets of the surrounding area retain an appealing and old-fashioned feel.

Southern Fife is characterised by Dunfermline, and the 'Lang Toun' of Kirkcaldy, with the facilities for shopping, sports, cinema and theatre expected of Fife's largest settlements. The Forth Road and Rail Bridges are memorable sights on this stretch of coastline and the transport networks they symbolise, provide excellent connections south to Edinburgh, and the world-famous Festivals, and within an hour's drive, west to Glasgow, and north to Perth and on into the Highlands.

The Scottish countryside is a fantastic mix of stunning landscapes, wildlife and wonderful local produce, combined with a thriving arts and culture scene, and topped off with a colourful history of epic battles and historic castles. It's worth exploring the beautiful landscapes, from the sandy coastlines to the highest Munros and greenest forests, providing the setting for some truly breathtaking castles and monuments and a wide range of different animals, from birds to whales, and squirrels to seals.

Dunfermline


We are located 3 miles east of Dunfermline, the ancient capital of Scotland, home to some of Fife and Scotland's finest historical and tourist attractions.

Dunfermline's royal and monastic past dominate the town which boasts a royal palace, a 12th Century Abbey (final resting place of Robert the Bruce and burial site of eleven other Scottish kings and queens), a restored 15th Century Abbot House and the cave in which St Margaret bathed the feet of the poor. King Malcolm Canmore established his court after the death of Macbeth (yes, that Macbeth!) at the now ruined fortified tower in the heart of what is now the horticultural splendour of Pittencrieff Park. The town also has a modern shopping centre, and a variety of restaurants, pubs and nightclubs.

Dunfermline's perfect location offers you the ideal base to discover the magnificent Kingdom of Fife, as well as Edinburgh and the heart of Scotland beyond.

“Brilliant”

Reviewed 2 Apr 2017

Always a very friendly welcome from the owner who lives next door. Any problems you know where to go. I've stayed there a couple of times and always found everything as advertised and central to everything.

“Clean, comfy, good quality”

Reviewed 7 Nov 2015

Small, but good. Great value. Easy access to many areas there is a park and ride 5mins.walk with buses to almost anywhere. to Edinburgh, Perth, Dundee etc. Very close to a leisure park with a multi screen cinema, restaurants etc.

Owner's reply: Thanks, glad that you though it was good value, what we aim for! Appreciate that you took the time to let others know what you thought.

“nice little place”

Reviewed 21 Oct 2015

The cottage it's self was lovely. Small from the outside but big enough inside. Good size bedroom, lovely garden, great heating and internet. Everything finished to a high standard. We had very bad luck with the weather so didn't get to visit all the places we planned. The cottage is a good base for visiting the area and is on a good bus route. But we didn't think much of crossgates, maybe if the weather had been better....

Owner's reply: Thanks for letting others know what you thought of our wee place, glad you liked it. We try hard to keep it in good shape. I can understand your not being impressed with the village, but it does have a local shop and other amenities even if it isn't exactly pretty. I hope you went into Dunfermline, as that is attractive, with the abbey and the gothic town hall clock!

“Very nice apartment”

Reviewed 30 Jun 2015

Nice clean apartment with a lovely garden, enjoyed my stay and will return when up in the area again.

Owner's reply: Thanks, be glad to have you stay again, regards, Fenella

“Home From Home”

Reviewed 12 Apr 2015

Made very welcome and felt at home. Good standard all round. Close to motorway and Dunfermline. Recommend to anyone.

Owner's reply: Thanks very much for your kind words. Such a shame you had to return to work early. Hope to see you again. Kind regards, Fenella

“Relaxing away from it all break”

Reviewed 8 Nov 2014

My wife and I returned again to the wee hauf as it's a great place to relax. Excellent property with all mod cons including a comfortable sofa bed in the lounge now. Dunfermline within easy reach and plenty in town to keep you occupied. Travelling further afield is no problem as there are good train, bus and road networks for getting to see the sights. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable break. See you again next Spring. Thank you Fenella.

Owner's reply: Thanks for booking again. Glad you found the changes (new bed and sofa) comfortable and had a good break. Look forward to seeing you next spring. Best wishes, Fenella

“cozy and clean”

Reviewed 28 Oct 2014

as usual the cottage was clean and had everything laid on . Fenella could not have been more help i had a lovely stay and had days out as far as Stonehaven and then back to the comfort of the cottage for a good nights sleep would highly recommend and will be going on my 3rd visit next year

Owner's reply: Good to have you back and glad you enjoyed your stay again. Look forward to seeing you next year. Best wishes, Fenella

“Small, but perfectly formed”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2014

Thank you Fenella for an excellent stay, the Wee Hauf is a very well-equipped little house and the bedroom with French doors into the lovely garden is a very attractive feature, which we made the most of at every occasion (cup of tea in bed each morning). Crossgates is on the outskirts of Dunfermline, but is in a fantastic position for getting everywhere, and is an excellent base for the Fife coast, Edinburgh and further afar. All transport links are within a 10 minute drive, the M90 & train station within a 5 minute drive at the most. whatever you do have fish & chips from Romano's they are excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend this property for a fab holiday, we will return as there is so much more to see that we did not complete during our 9 night stay.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind words. It's always good to know you've helped someone to have a good holiday and your useful feedback will make it even better. We look forward to seeing you again. All the best, Fenella

“Welcoming, Cosy and Convenient!”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2014

Thank you for a warm welcome to the Wee Hauf. Just right and well-equipped for a comfortable stay and the beautiful garden was a bonus. The location is great for days out by car or public transport. Highly recommended.

Owner's reply: Thank you for staying with us. Glad you liked the garden, it is nice to be able to sit out in privacy when you do get good weather! Bets wishes, Fenella

“Nice wee house - village a bit dull”

Reviewed 14 Apr 2014

The Wee Hauf is a very well-equipped little house and the bedroom with French doors into lovely garden is a very attractive feature. Crossgates itself is rather drab and the area between it and Dunfermline is just a mass of new housing estates and retail parks, but for people with card it is an excellent base for the Fife coast, Edinburgh etc. I came by bus (with my wee dog!) and hoped for long country walks but it wasn't as rural as I had hoped. However there are a couple of nice footpaths away from the road. Fenella was an excellent helpful hostess.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your comments, I'm pleased you were happy with the Wee Hauf. It was kind of you to leave your map. I have noted the better walks nearby that you told me about and will pass them on. I'm sorry you were disappointed with the village, as with so many villages the move of so many people into towns/cities hasn't helped. We hadn't really noticed as we spend our time in the garden and happily there are still local shops. Best wishes, Fenella
