quiet cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

had a lovely time in Tayport although was cold. From the cottage everything is in walking distance. It was nice and peace which I needed after recovering from a bad broken ankle.

The dog love chasing the birds every day and nosing at the gate watching people go by.

The local shops are good and Chinese good value for money

Cute and cosy

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent the most comfortable few days at Ogilvy cottage.

It is a well planned updated 2 bedroomed cottage.

The downstairs bedroom has an en suite with superb walk in shower. The upstairs bedroom has a huge, comfortable bed with the upstairs separate bathroom with shower over the bath.

There are lovely lamps, pictures, ornaments, clocks, mirrors, cushions and throws everywhere.

The cottage is lovely and warm and has almost every piece of crockery, pan, cutlery & electric implement that you could need.

A kitchen table seats 4 easily. The sitting room has comfy seats and tv. Free WIfi too.

The garden is quite narrow- but long and you can get the sun for most of the day. Table and chairs provided outside.

Tayport is a lovely, small town with most essential shops, 2 pubs, lovely café at the harbour, dentist, school, doctor, library and plenty of buses to get about.

St Andrews and Perth are less than half an hour away and Tentismuir forest and beautiful beach less than 15 mins away. The area is great for golfers, fishermen,joggers and cyclists.

Anne, the owner is very helpful and quick to reply to E-mails and texts.

Ogilvy cottage is excellent value for the price and I would recommend it to anyone.

Ogilvie Cottage Recommended

  • 4 of 5

Charming terraced cottage with nice rear garden. Clean, comfortable and well equipped. It was cold when we were there and the log burner was real treat and the central heating was very efficient.

There is a small supermarket, Chinese takeaway and pub all within easy walking distance.

Great service and good communication from very pleasant owner.

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

I really enjoyed my recent stay in Ogilvie cottage. The cottage is cosy, very clean, deceptively spacious and has an individual stylish interior that is a nice mix of old, new and quirky with antique wooden floors and furnishings sitting comfortably beside plasma screens, a wood burning stove and local art works. The owners have paid great attention to ensuring that all guests needs are catered for from the well appointed kitchen with its excellent cooking facilities to provision of books and games for rainy days with plenty of information on local attractions and facilities . Although the cottage is an easy walk to the centre of the village there was little through traffic at night ensuring a good night’s sleep. I’d love to come back in the summer and take advantage of the lovely peaceful garden and its brick BBQ. A small supermarket is an easy 5 minute walk from the cottage and there is a good Chinese/fish and chip takeaway nearby if you don’t feel like cooking. Visitors unable to manage stairs can take advantage of the downstairs bedroom with its en suite shower and toilet.

Tayport makes a great base for visiting Dundee, St Andrews and the surrounding area. There are regular buses to both (half hourly) and there are also lovely walking and cycling routes from the cottage itself, either along the estuary (once you can drag yourself out of the Harbour Café) or out to Tentsmuir National nature reserve and the Morton lochs to try and catch views of otters, seals, red squirrels, water fowl and kingfishers. Don’t miss the DCA and McManus art galleries in Dundee, Discovery Point at the waterfront, the coffee shops and beach of nearby Broughty Ferry, the historical town of St Andrews and the picturesque East Neuk of Fife. It would make a great base for golfers, cyclists, walkers or families. I look forward to coming back.
