With spectacular sea views and enjoying a beachside location, this third-floor flat is perfect for couples seeking a relaxing break on the Fife coast. Situated in the picturesque fishing village of Kinghorn, spend your days on the sandy beach before enjoying an early evening drink in one of the traditional inns. Practise your swing at Kinghorn Golf Course, a challenging 18-hole links course with fabulous views across the Firth of Forth or enjoy a leisurely walk around the banks of tranquil Kinghorn Loch watching the anglers.

Within walking distance of the beach and picturesque harbour, this third-floor flat offers comfortable accommodation decorated in soothing tones reflecting the coastal colours on the doorstep. Large windows in the bedroom and lounge offer breath-taking sea views. Sit and watch the ever-changing colours play on the waters below as you relax in front of the wood burner.

Climb to the third floor of this substantial white-washed property and step into your seaside sanctuary. Prepare hearty meals in the bright and airy kitchen before snuggling up for the evening in the cosy living room with its wonderful sea views. On cooler evenings light the wood burner and chat late into the night enjoying its gentle warmth. When it’s time to retire, head through to your restful double bedroom where you can wake up each morning to the sight of the sea.

The gorgeous beach is on the doorstep, accessed via steps or a ramp. Take your blanket for a relaxed beach picnic or enjoy a stroll along the shoreline before supper. Wander the quaint streets to the picturesque harbour where you can watch the fishing boats unload their catch or feast on freshly caught fish in one of the harbourside restaurants. Step onto the Fife Coastal Path for a day walking the rugged coastline, seeking out the perfect bay for a paddle or head to Kinghorn Loch for canoeing, sailing and open-water swimming.

Spend the day discovering the coastal city of St Andrews (27 miles). Explore the remains of the 12th century cathedral and climb to the top of St Rule's Tower for panoramic views from your 33m tall vantage point. Stroll among the atmospheric ruins of St Andrews Castle, sitting on the headland overlooking the North Sea and find out about its bloody history in the museum. Golf enthusiasts will be fascinated at the impressive collections in the British Golf Museum, located opposite the Old Course clubhouse, including the earliest known set of golf clubs.

Not to be missed is Scotland's capital city, Edinburgh (26.5 miles), with its blend of historical sites and cosmopolitan style. Stroll the Royal Mile, browsing the shops and maybe picking up a souvenir of your stay. Climb Castle Hill to reach the imposing Edinburgh Castle. See the splendours of the Royal Palace and gaze on the famous Stone of Destiny, displayed along with the Scottish Crown Jewels. Spend some time in the National Museum of Scotland where exhibits range from dinosaurs to space age science. Step onto one of Edinburgh's secret gems at the museum's roof terrace where you can enjoy stunning views across the city.

This is a beautiful apartment extremely close to a clean, sandy beach. Excellent for dogs as the beaches are dog friendly. Plenty to do in the surrounding area and good connections to larger towns via the train with the station being 5 minutes away. It's the third time we've been and plan to visit again.

Lovely apartment in a lovely location. It was warm, even in freezing conditions (December 15-19-22) and the log burner made it particularly cosy . We were visiting family in Edinburgh (Stockbridge) and the journey across the Queensferry bridge was spectacular and provided easy access to that area of the city.
