About the location
St Andrews 10 miles; Carnoustie 13 miles; Perth 24 miles.
The coastal town of Newport-on-Tay was originally developed in the 12th century as part of a ferry crossing to Dundee. A new harbour was built in the 1820s by Thomas Telford and the town developed as a fashionable commuter suburb of Dundee. Also archaeological excavations in the town have uncovered a Bronze Age cemetery dating from around 1700 to 2000 BC. The Fife Coastal Path running from the Forth Estuary in the south, to the Tay Estuary in the north and stretching for 117 miles passes through Newport-on-Tay, plus the attractive open farmland makes this part of Fife particularly attractive. Visit Cupar and the pretty village of Leuchars, or take in the air show at the nearby RAF base. This is an ideal location for golfing enthusiasts as Carnoustie and St Andrews are only short drives away. This part of Scotland has some truly spectacular stretches of coastline with Tentsmuir Forest and National Nature Reserve covering some 50 square miles, the St Andrews beach itself and, slightly further south, the beach at Kingsbarns, are all worth a visit.
