  • “We only had a few minor quibbles about the property and parking.”

    We weren't sure what day we needed to pull out the various bins for collection. Although it stated that there were two parking places available we were unsure whether someone would park in the Visitor slot when we returned (we did have two cars). It would have been more convenient to have hooks on the back of the bathroom and bedroom doors to hang dressing gowns.

    Thanks very much for staying in our new house. The visitor spaces are readily available for the small number of houses around us and so there is always one free for our property to use for parking a second car. We will make this clearer in the welcome notes. Thanks for pointing it out. We had decided not to put hooks on the lovely wooden bedroom doors as the wardrobes are so close which have hangers provided inside. The link in your welcome note should have explained the bin days. We appreciate that with so much recycling asked of us by the local council, it can be confusing! We hope you enjoyed your stay Property Owner

About the location

ST ANDREWS

Dundee 13 miles; Perth 35 miles; Edinburgh 50 miles.

St Andrews is Scotland's oldest university town and is situated in the north-east corner of the Kingdom of Fife. In this region, the landscape varies from the gentle hills in the rural hinterland to the windswept cliffs, rocky bays and sandy beaches where scenes from the film 'Chariots of Fire' were famously shot. The town is easily explored on foot, as the main streets form the hub of the town and offer an interesting mix of 13th century through to modern-day buildings, found alongside a variety of shops and restaurants to suit all tastes. The association of St Andrews with golf dates to the 15th century, with the famous 'Old Course' being constructed in the 16th century, whilst today, St Andrews is the frequent venue of championship events and boasts an additional five alternative public courses in the area as well as the excellent Golf Museum. To the south of St Andrews is the East Neuk, a region of quaint fishing villages, while Fife, Dundee, Perth and Edinburgh can all be easily reached.
