Leuchars railway station 5.7 miles, Dundee 14.5 miles, Edinburgh 54 miles

St Andrews is a picturesque conservation town famous for its university and as the birthplace of golf. It has become a worldwide destination for the game, and there are now six golf courses at St Andrews including the Old Course, regular host to the Open Championship. There are many other golf courses in the area including a new course at Kingsbarns, and traditional links courses at Elie, Crail, Leven and Lundin Links.

St Andrews provides good state schooling at Madras College and private schooling at St Leonard’s. The historic town has a good range of independent and national retailers, hotels, restaurants and recreational facilities which include a cinema and the neighbouring Byre Theatre. To the south of St Andrews is the East Neuk of Fife. This area has become a destination in its own right due to its spectacular coastline which boasts fishing villages built around pretty harbours and sandy unspoilt beaches.

St Andrews is well situated for transport routes by rail, road and air. Leuchars railway station (5.7 miles) is on the main Aberdeen to London line and provides a fast link to Dundee and Edinburgh. Edinburgh Airport, with its increasingly wide range of domestic and international flights, is only 54 miles away. There is a dual carriageway and motorway connection to Edinburgh from Kirkcaldy (20 miles).

The accommodation within each townhouse is spread over three levels with two bedrooms apiece and living space on the second floor opening onto a private west facing roof terrace.
