My father was the Caterpiller Dealer in Calcutta India and so I was born in that far off country. The bulk of my career has been as a Dealer Principal within the Motor Trade in Scotland from which I retired in 2010. We purchased the Upper flat in 2007 and the Garden flat in 2010 which gave us the whole of the property. With my background in customer service we try hard to satisfy the requirements of our guests and pay particular attention to the detail that will make their stay something special to remember.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2007

My home town was Dundee and with an Aunt who lived in St Andrews I was introduced to the game of golf at an early age. I used to come over the water on a regular basis to play the great Links and have always regarded it as a unique venue with its own special character. When the opportunity arose then what better place to acquire a piece of history in this very historic town?!

Old Admiralty House is one of the relatively few privately owned properties that has uninterupted views of the sea. It is a short walk to both the golf courses and the centre of the town. However although close to the bustling centre with all the pubs, shops and restaurants it is a quiet haven being situated at the end of a cull-de-sac with no through traffic. You wake up to the sound of the sea and the call of the seabirds and couldn't be furthar away from all the pressure of modern life. It truly is a place you can recharge the batteries!

Exquisite property in a Scottish haven

The photos do not portray the value of this spot. The apartment itself is all you can ask for. The location is even better, if that's possible. If you're a golfer nothing more needs being said. If you're just a tourist, the rich history, spectacular scenery and friendly people make any stay memorable. Many of the guests come back and I can certainly see why. There are no negatives with this property.
Drew is great to work with and very prompt with answers to any question. I would certainly re-book this spot if I'm ever back in the area again.
Most people know St. Andrews as the 'Home of Golf' but there is much more to see and do if you're not into golf. The ruins of the cathedral and castle, the old walls, the scenic coast and the quaint little coffee shops make this area a place to visit for many.

Incredible in every way

This home used to belong to the British admiralty and according to its owner Drew used to be used as a customs house. It is divided into upper and lower apartments. We stayed in upper apartment ( my wife and I) with two friends. There were three bedrooms all with a view of the water and the castle across the street. The apartment was really wonderful...clean. modern and in a fabulous location near the ruins of the old cathedral and not too far from the town center although far enough away to be quiet. Parking was easy and the owner met us at our arrival and left wine and flowers. I can't say enough about how great our stay was here.

Great St Andrews hospitality!

We were visiting the University with our son and we could not have picked a better spot in St andrews. The Upper Flat has views from every room and the high standard of the flat's accommodations made it a pleasure to be there. It is very convenient to all of St andrews. It is in the heart of the University, 5 minute walk from the first tee of the Old Course, and minutes from the 3 main Streets in town. Parking in front was never a problem. I would recommend the Upper Flat to anyone wanting a restful Haven in St andrews.

Lovely Apartment

  • Submitted: Dec 10, 2012

We had an incredible week in St. Andrews and it was thanks in large part to our beautiful accommodations. The apartment was everything we could have asked for and more. The location is perfect, close to everything and with amazing views of the sea. The apartment is modern, immaculately clean and very comfortable. We were a party of two couples and we could have easily, and quite comfortably, accommodated another couple. The apartment was that spacious. We had everything we could possibly need and then some.
The owner, Drew Ramsay, is very courteous and professional. He met with us upon our arrival and provided us with detailed instructions for appliances in the apartment as well and a very informative guide to restaurants and local activities. We were particularly touched by his kindness and generosity.
The only sad part was leaving St. Andrews but we hope someday to return there and to The Old admiralty House.

The location and house are both wonderful. You can sit for hours just enjoying the view. We ate in every night, utilizing the well stocked kitchen.Everything is close and accessible. Try the coastal walking path up to the Castle course. Getting to play the Old Course was a treat.
