About the location


Falkland 3 miles; Perth 17 miles; St Andrews 20 miles; Edinburgh 37 miles.

Known locally as Muchty, the village of Auchtermuchty can be traced back to Roman times, with the distinctive name translated from Scottish Gaelic as the somewhat less romantic ‘upland of the pigs’. Gaining royal burgh status in the 16th century and developed commercially through engineering, linen and whisky. Used as the backdrop for the television series ‘Dr Finlay’s Casebook’, the village still boasts the Tannochbrae Tea room. A statue in the village commemorates Sir Jimmy Shand, accordion player and bandleader and The Proclaimers also hail from the village. Auchtermuchty has local shops, pubs, chemist and a post office. There is much to see and do in this part of Scotland whether it is exploring nature in the RSPB reserve at nearby Loch Leven or one of the many boat trips available along the famous East Neuk coastline. St Andrews is only 30 mins drive with its famous golf course and stunning beaches. North of St Andrews, Tentsmuir also boasts spectacular beaches as well as woodland that is ideal for walking and cycling. The village of Falkland with its fabulous palace is s short drive away and Scone Palace near Perth is about 20 mins away. A superb base for exploring this distinctive and varied part of Scotland.
