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.
One of our favourite walks whilst staying at Sandcastle Cottage is the walk along the coastal path from Roome Bay to West Ness. This walk takes in some of the most visited and much photographed parts of Crail offering superb views across to the Isle of May and Berwick Law. Read more
It is such a pleasure to me to receive photographs from guests who have spent time at Sandcastle Cottage in Crail. And even more so when I see a beautiful image like this one. A February morning, just before dawn at Roome Bay. This morning scene prompted me to get up early when we were at the cottage recently and take lots of photographs myself, and some video footage. It’s such a pleasure to have the wide horizons of Roome Bay so close to Sandcastle Cottage – just cross the road outside and head down the path past the Doo’cot opposite and you’re there. When we’re staying at the cottage the circuit down to the coastal path, up the steps by King’s Mill and along Castle Walk to Shoregate is our ‘long road for a short-cut’ to the High Street and the local shops.Tony, our photographer, is a keen birdwatcher, and uses our cottage in Crail as a base to go exploring round the Fife coast as there are many spots where different birds can be seen. If you are interested in finding out more about the wildlife you can see around Crail, the About Crail website has a new column being contributed to by a local enthusiast, Will Cresswell – read more about Wild Crail.
