About Beth Bell
The apartment is owned by Fife Historic Buildings Trust, a local Building Preservation Trust. It is a company limited by guarantee and has charitable status. It was formed in 1997 primarily for the purpose of saving and restoring historic buildings in Fife which are at risk. We are very proud of our beautiful historic building and would love to welcome you here. We have three holiday apartments: Kinghorn Town Hall, John McDouall Stuart View - Dysart and Cupar Burgh Chambers.
Beth Bell purchased this Apartment in 2012
Why Beth Bell chose Kirkcaldy
The apartment is nice and peaceful, and Dysart is a lovely place to visit if you just want to relax or if you want to use it as a base whilst you visit various places throughout Scotland. At Fife Historic Buildings Trust, our focus is restoring historic buildings and giving them a new purpose. When we first restored John McDouall Stuart View, it was originally a John McDouall Stuart Museum ran by Fife Council. The museum was unfortunatley not busy enough to remain open so FHBT took control of the property and converted it into an apartment.
What makes this Apartment unique
The beautiful sea views across the Firth and Forth, really make this apartment shine. By staying in this property you will be contribute to the restoration of this and other historic properties throughout Fife.

Wonderful cottage great location
We felt very comfortable and especially enjoyed the great view of the sea.
The equipment of the kitchen was great and in the large rooms we felt very comfortable
A lovely flat with great views of the Firth of Forth. Has great character.
Very well equipped flat, great for a couple. Flat itself up a flight of stairs as is the 1 bathroom, for us it was fine and the house has kept its character. Great waking up in the morning and looking over to the sea. Would love to come back some time. Thanks to the owners for their thoughtfulness-great to find bread and milk plus a bottle of wine on arriving. Flat is near public transport too (bus stop)
Loved the apartment, very welcoming and felt like home. Looking forward to our return in 2 weeks
Perfect position and spectacular views. Kitchen well fitted out as we love cooking. Very comfy living area although couch not the best for bad backs. Loved the spaciousness and so clean and welcoming. So looking forward to return visit in 2 weeks
Thank you very much for your kind feedback, I am delighted you enjoyed your stay at the apartment, we were happy to host you for two weeks during your stay.
