There is lots to see and do on a day trip to St Andrews. Many of our guests are ex St Andrews students or have holidayed there as a child. Some of our visitors from parts of the UK and overseas are making their first trip to the area. However many are returning guests who have fallen in love with the area and enjoy a relaxing carefree holiday.
The best time to visit the Isle of May is in spring and early summer. This is a very popular day trip with our guests at Sandcastle Cottage. Boat trips leave from Anstruther harbour either on the May Princess or the fast Osprey Rib. Read more
Pittenweem Balcaskie and St Monans is a 7 mile circular walk which took us 3.5 hours. Starting in Pittenweem, walking through Balcaskie Estate, Abercrombie village, St Monans and back to Pittenweem. The route is relatively flat along small country roads, good paths through open farmland with fine views to Berwick Law and the Bass Rock. The return from St Monans is along the Fife Coastal Path.
Crail Heritage Walk is an easy historical walking tour from Sandcastle Cottage with coffee, cake or ice cream stops on the way. Whether this is your first time or you are a regular visitor to Crail, I hope you and your family enjoy this walk.
A holiday in the East Neuk of Fife gives visitors the opportunity to visit the different towns and villages along the coast, and with a base in Crail you have several options for a day out to Anstruther. It’s near enough to walk along the coastal path; there is a regular hourly bus service on the Coastliner 95; or you can go by car.
