GENERAL
Myrecairnie Farmhouse is a well presented and
substantial detached farmhouse, formerly part of
the Kilmaron Estate and standing in beautiful rolling
countryside with excellent views, a short distance
to the north of the popular town of Cupar in north
east Fife. Cupar offers an excellent range of local
facilities and amenities with a good selection of shops, supermarkets, pubs, restaurants and the like, while just a short drive to the east lies the ancient and historic university town of St. Andrews, renowned world wide as the "Home of Golf". Twenty minutes or so to the north lies the resurgent city of Dundee, which is already home to Scott's ship RSS Discovery and will shortly be the location for the V & A museum. Dundee provides a comprehensive offering of city shops, services and amenities. Perth is about half an hour to the north-west and Edinburgh about a one hour drive to the south.
Surrounding Myrecairnie Farmhouse is some
particularly fine countryside with a lovely mix of
farmland, woodland, hill and river. The area is home to an array of wildlife and provides great scope for the outdoor enthusiast with walking, cycling and riding all readily available. There are many highly regarded golf courses in the area including championship courses at Carnoustie and the Old Course at St. Andrews, both of which regularly host the British Open. Ladybank, The Duke's Course, Kingsbarns, Elie, Lundin Links and Crail are also nearby whilst the wide open spaces of the Lomond Hills and the pretty fishing villages of Fife's
quaint East Neuk such as Anstruther, Pittenweem and St Monans are within comfortable driving distance.

In terms of days out there are good sandy beaches at St. Andrews, Elie, Kingsbarns and Tentsmuir, along with a number of popular National Trust for Scotland properties, including Hill of Tarvit, Falkland Palace and Kellie Castle. State schooling is available locally in Cupar with independent schooling being provided at the High School of Dundee and St. Leonards in St. Andrews. There are railway stations in Cupar, Leuchars and Ladybank with Edinburgh airport about one hour to the south. The regional airport at Dundee offers a good selection of short-haul flights.
