This is a beautiful holiday cottage for 8, situated in the heart of delightful Pittenweem, a hotspot for arts, crafts and antiques. There are award-winning sandy beaches, world-class golf courses, water sports galore and many other holiday activities in the Fife area. For the gastronomes amongst you, there are several excellent restaurants and lots of family-friendly pubs to visit nearby. Superbly renovated, the cottage provides comfortable accommodation on two floors. Visitors have access to an enclosed garden area.

Travel to Pittenweem and you seem to travel back to a time of unspoilt beauty and calm. The quaint colourful cottages with red pantile roofs and wonderful sea views over the Firth of Forth reflect an unspoilt quality of life. This part of the Fife Coastal Path enables walkers to enjoy wildlife, villages, castles, churches and harbours. You may wish to make a boat trip to the Isle of May to view the breeding seabirds and the colony of grey seals. Or perhaps you would like to make use of the Millenium Cycle Way with its network of dedicated cycle routes. You will not need reminding that this area is a golfer's paradise with world-famous courses available at St Andrews, Kingsbarns, Crail and Elie. For families, visit St Andrews' Aquarium and Castle, or the Scottish Deer Centre at Cupar where there are falconry displays and wolves in addition to the deer! Pittenweem playground includes a challenging skateboarding park, and a little further away, Craigtoun Country Park offers train and boat rides, adventure playgrounds, trampolines and bouncy castles.

The Pittenweem Arts Festival at the beginning of August is a must for art lovers, but if you time it right, hopefully you will be here for some of the other special events and festivals, such as the Ceres Highland Games, the RAF Show at Leuchars, or the Leven Vintage Car Rally. Kellie Castle and Garden, two miles north of Pittenweem, features a fascinating Victorian Nursery and old kitchen, and a beautifully cultivated walled garden and children's adventure trail. An exceptional museum giving an insight into the Scottish fishing industry is based in Anstruther, and you may also like to explore the old fishing village of Crail with its Museum and Heritage Centre. Visits across the Tay Bridge to RRS Discovery, the Life Science Centre or the Verdant Works are also recommended. As is a day trip to Edinburgh to visit the Castle, the Palace of Holyroodhouse, Dynamic Earth and Royal Britannia, for example.
