Traditionally styled family home with a fantastic coastal situation and outlook

Location

Wellcraig has a fantastic and elevated coastal setting with far reaching views over the Firth of Tay over to Broughty Ferry. The house sits in one of the finest spots on the Tay coast. Occupying a small spur of land jutting out slightly from the neighbouring bay, it is right on the foreshore and has river views on two sides.

The town of Tayport offers excellent local shopping and social activities as well as a quiet marina. Good local schooling, both primary and secondary, is also within easy reach. Tayport offers an attractive lifestyle, yet is not far from larger towns, including Cupar and St Andrews, in addition to the city of Dundee accessed across the Tay Road Bridge. Independent schooling is available at St Leonard's in St Andrews and The High School of Dundee. There are frequent local bus services and good access to major road links, including the M90 and the A90. Perth, Aberdeen and Edinburgh are all within comfortable driving distance. There are railway stations at Leuchars and Dundee, with direct services to Aberdeen, Edinburgh and London. Edinburgh International Airport lies approximately 56 miles to the south by road, and more locally the regional airport at Dundee offers services to London Stansted.
This is an area of particularly outstanding and varied countryside, with hill, wood, river, farmland and coastline all close by. The result is a fine choice for the outdoor enthusiast, with walking, cycling, sailing and riding all readily available. It is perhaps golf for which Fife is most famous, however, with numerous top quality courses in a comparatively small area including the world renowned Old Course at St Andrews, which plays regular host to the Open Championship. The area boasts a number of National Trust for Scotland properties including Falkland Palace, Kellie Castle and Hill of Tarvit mansion house.
