Overview

About the property

Studio - Sleeps 2

Anstruther is a small coastal town in the East Neuk (east corner) of Fife, Scotland, just 10 miles from St Andrews. Carstairs Cabin is close to the sea and has been newly renovated. On the ground floor there is a kitchen and shower room and outdoor courtyard.

The studio flat, Carstairs Cabin, lies half way between the historic harbour of Cellardyke and the larger harbour of Anstruther and is about 100 metres from the coast, so it's a real seaside retreat. And for a change of scene, there are lots of lovely other small seaside villages or beaches near Anstruther such as Elie, Earlsferry, St. Monans, Pittenweem, Crail and Kingsbarns.

Anstruther is home to Scotland's most famous Fish Bar, which has won lots of prizes and is a must visit if you like fish and chips! If you are looking for a quiet place to unwind and shut out the world, this is the place for you. However, if you are looking for a home base from which to explore Scotland, then this is also the place for you!

St Andrews:

10 miles away in St Andrews, you can visit the majestic ruins of the 11th century Cathedral and Castle, the University Museum, Botanic Gardens, Cambo Estate Gardens, St Andrews Aquarium and the delightful beaches of West Sands and East Sands.

Golf:

If you like golf then you are in for a treat: there are 45 golf courses in the Fife peninsula. As well as the famous Old Course in St Andrews, there are also 10 other golf courses in the town. Even closer to Oceanside are many other excellent courses including the Anstruther Golf Course, Craighead Links Golf Course, Crail Balcomie Links and also Kingsbarns featured in October 2012 in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

Walk:

Carstairs Cabin is just off the Fife Coastal Path - a 117 mile trail from the Forth Estuary in the south to the Tay Estuary in the north. The path goes past wildlife reserves, rugged cliffs, along award winning beaches, through small fishing villages and former coal mining towns. It's very easy to walk small sections of this and then catch the bus home, which drops you off just round the corner!

Explore:

There are several National Trust Scotland properties you can explore nearby including Kellie Castle with its beautiful garden and the 16th century Falkland Palace, a former royal palace of the Scottish Kings, with extensive gardens and the tennis court built in 1539.

Scotland's Secret Bunker is 10 minutes away, Craigtoun Country Park is 30 minutes away, the Scottish Deer Centre is 40 minutes away and Fife Animal Park is 50 minutes away. There are also Cairnie Fruit Farm and Maze in Cupar about 30 minutes away and a Cheese Farm near to Anstruther.

On the water:

Between April and October, you can take a boat trip from Anstruther to the Isle of May, a National Nature Reserve. Over 200,000 sea birds of many species nest on the island - Puffins, Guillemots, Cormorants, Tern, Gull and others. You can also see Grey Seals and Harbour Seals and might spot the occasional whale.

Edinburgh:

Edinburgh is about 50 miles away, home to Edinburgh Castle, The Royal Mile, Arthur's Seat, Princes Street Gardens, Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh Zoo, St. Giles Cathedral, Greyfriars Church and many museums and galleries. Deep Sea World is near the Forth Road Bridge on the road to Edinburgh.

Tayside:

Dundee is about 30 minutes away - visit Captain Scott's ship RRS Discovery and the Antarctica Museum at Discovery Point. Perth is 1 hour away - see Scone Palace, the original home of the Stone of Destiny and the site of the coronations of the Kings of Scots.

Play:

There are children's indoor play centres in Leven, Glenrothes, Cupar and Kirkcaldy, all within 25-45 minutes away. There is also the East Sands Leisure Centre with pool and flume in nearby St Andrews.

Train:

If you want to leave the car behind for the day, Leuchars Train Station is a 20 minute drive from Anstruther. From there you can make a day trip to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Inverness, and many other places in between.

A lovely cosy property very clean and with everything you need! The location is perfect .

  • 5 of 5

The property is perfectly located to walk down to lovely Anstruther with its picturesque harbour and award winning chippy! The studio itself is very comfortable with glimpses of the river from the dormer windows. Parking is good and there are lots of walking routes to take or pop into St Andrews by car or bus.We hope to be back later in the year!

Brilliant stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Carstairs Cabin, its very thoughtfully presented, very clean, and really central. We used it as a base for touring along the coast, and enjoyed relaxing in the house as well. Our communication with Maggie and Kev beforehand was really helpful, and they are great hosts. We would definitely recommend Carstairs Cabin.
