Cities, towns and villages
We are just 4 miles from the town of St Andrews, where you’ll find so much history, beautiful beaches, grand architecture and glorious golf. Dundee is our nearest city, and this is a great place to visit for museums, history, art and culture. Then, there are several other towns and villages in the surrounding area that are well worth a day trip. From the traditional fishing villages in the East Neuk of Fife, to inland towns such as Cupar and Falkland.
Exploring the east coast
Fife is known for its charming coastal towns and villages, each one with its own unique characteristics. A road trip down the Fife coast from St Andrews will take you to some spectacular places. They include Kingsbarns, Crail, Anstruther, Pittenweem, St Monans and Elie. You can also walk from village to village on the Fife Coastal Path.
