    There was no bolt or key on the inside to secure the flat overnight, so anyone who had ever been told the combination could have come in. The first night (staying by myself) I slept with all the lights on. The next day I had a long conversation with the property manager, Wendy, who tried to tell me that their insurers insisted on it which seems extremely unlikely and that it was completely safe which is patently ridiculous since she could have no idea of who had been given the number. She did eventually do what she should have done straight away, which was to bring a key, so it was resolved in the end but irritating.

CUPAR, FIFE

St Andrews 9.7 miles; Kirkcaldy 17.8 miles

Enveloped by rolling hills, positioned alongside the babbling River Edan, in the historic county of Fife, is the picturesque town of Cupar. It retains much of its medieval character including a number of historic buildings; the Hill of Tarvit, an Edwardian mansion being well worth the visit. Owned by the National Trust for Scotland since 1949, the house contains an impressive collection of 18th century Chippendale and French furniture, as well as Chinese porcelain and lovely Dutch paintings. The Scottish Deer Centre nearby covers over 55 acres of greenery, with 13 species of deer from around the world, Fife's only wolf pack, otters and other rare Scottish breeds. The park is simply beautiful and makes a superb day out with guided tours, woodland walks, nose-to-nose sessions and birds of prey demonstrations, along with so much more! Fife Zoo is also within easy reach, as is Mount Hill for walking and Norman's Law. St. Andrews, home to the University of St. Andrew's, Scotland's oldest university and the St Andrew's Links golf course, is some 9 miles away. The town offers a bustling hub of shops, pubs and eateries as well as an interesting mix of old and modern buildings. There is an excellent Golf Museum, aquarium, cathedral and a beautiful botanical garden. The Fife Coastal Path also beckons with so much to discover along its 117 miles of dramatic scenery. You can start at the Forth of Tay and journey on a wonderful walking experience to the Forth of Firth in the south. Pass through small fishing villages, across award-winning beaches and rugged cliffs on an adventure you won't forget in a hurry.
