Ideally located opposite the University’s famous St. Salvator’s Chapel (see video) and Quadrangle, you really can’t ask for more.........nearly forgot, the beach is only a ten minute walk away, and Sainsbury's 2 minutes up the cobbled walkway!

For further information turn right and walk up the cobbled walk way to Market Street and you will see the Visit Scotland Information Shop. Supermarkets, friendly pubs,exquisite shopping, coffee shops and top class restaurants are all at your finger tips. ENJOY!
I live in Australia, but was born in Scotland. Both my brother and mother live in St Andrews and so it makes sense to own some property in the area.
Ailsa Wilson purchased this cottage in 2012
We bought this property because we love the town of St Andrews - it holds a special place for us, as we were married here, and enjoyed our wedding reception at the Old Course Golf and Country Club. We also have a lot of family living in this area.
I love our cottage because it is just so cosy and so completely central to everything you could want from the town of St Andrews. It's age gives it history, and stories yet to unfold!
Just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time in St Andrews at the weekend. The cottage was fab!
We were only in St Andrews for 2 nights but would happily have stayed longer in this cosy, well-equipped cottage. It is right in the centre of the town with restaurants, bars, shops etc on the door step. Anyone looking for accommodation during the "graduation season" couldn't be better placed.
The Bunker is a lovely house and the location is brilliant. It is all in very good condition, nicely decorated, great kitchen that is well equipped, all the appliances seem new and work perfectly, the whole house is warm and light and there is a lot of space. It is very central and yet also quiet - a 2 minute walk to shops and restaurants and 5 minutes from the sea. Absolutely perfect.
Great property and perfect for our Scotland vacation. Clean, cozy, and very convenient. Everything was great and I would definitely recommend the cottage to anyone visiting St Andrews!
We had a wonderful two weeks at Ailsa's house. A little tight for 6 adults but we coped. The clue was not to allow anyone else in the kitchen. We had 8 dinners "at home" thanks to Marks and Spencer and Balgove. Otherwise it really worked well. Beds were comfortable, rooms small but we did not expect anything else. Plenty hot water and a great bath. The water pressure in the showers was great. They need a better washing line, I had to tie it together! The location was brilliant and we just loved walking everywhere. Parking was a drag but I only got one ticket! The students were arriving so the the town was very busy but the atmosphere was wonderful. Of course the weather was good - only one rainy day.
The cleaners came in once and did a great job. Ailsa gave us great customer service. It was just what we expected. Loved Peat Inn and Seafood Restaurant, otherwise ate at friends or at home. The stairs mights discourage some less active friends, otherwise it is perfect.
The only problem was the wifi that was very poor.
This cottage was so charming and cosy. It was in the best location in St. Andrews. The cottage was extremely clean, well stocked and beautifully decorated. Alisa was so easy to work with and answered any question we had. The beds were so comfortable and the bedding was luxurious. We hope to go back soon!!
The charming medieval town of St. Andrews has much to offer its visitors. It is the home of golf as well as the oldest University in Scotland. It has a fascinating history, beautiful beaches and walks and excellent restaurants. It really is an idyllic location for enthusiastic golfers or a base to explore the east coast of Scotland.
St Andrews is a town meant for exploring. The medieval layout of the town centre remains intact, with the main shopping areas concentrated in Market Street and South Street, with Bell Street and Church Street connecting the two principal streets. Take time to explore - on foot - and take pleasure at the surprises and delights you will find.
St Andrews holds a special place in Scotland's history. It takes its name from the Apostle whose relics, legend tells us, were brought to this place in antiquity by St Rule. Scotland later adopted St Andrew as her patron saint and took his salt ire cross for her flag.
