Location

St Andrews 2.5 miles, Dundee 14 miles, Edinburgh 51 miles

Denbrae Cottage West enjoys a peaceful position set on the edge of open farmland a short distance from St Andrews. In addition to the vibrant university town of St Andrews, the nearby village of Strathkinness has a range of local facilities including a village hall, a pub and a primary school. There is a direct bus service to St Andrews.

Locally there are many recreational activities available including water and beach sports while nearby St Andrews is renowned worldwide as the ‘Home of Golf’. The Old Course is a regular host to the Open Championship, most recently in 2015. There are now six further golf courses run by the St Andrews Links Trust, in addition to the many other golf courses in the area including the Duke’s Course, two courses at Fairmount, St Andrews Bay and Kingsbarns.

The town is also well known for its university which was Scotland’s first university and the third oldest in the English-speaking world, founded in 1413. For over six centuries it has established a reputation as one of Europe’s leading and most distinctive centres for teaching and research. The town provides good state schooling at Madras College and private schooling at St Leonards, and The High School of Dundee is also within easy reach.

Access by rail, road and air is good. Leuchars railway station (5.5 miles) and Cupar (7.5 miles) are on the main Aberdeen to London line and provide a fast link to Dundee and Edinburgh. Edinburgh Airport, with its increasingly wide range of domestic and international flights, is only 46 miles away and Dundee Airport (14 miles) has regular services to London Stansted.
