A delightful coastal holiday home perfect for groups of friends to get together, with great access to idyllic fishing villages.

This charming terrace cottage in the pretty fishing village of Anstruther is perfectly located for enjoying the delights of Fife, from the cities of Dundee and St Andrews to the pretty villages and beautiful sweeping beaches on the coast. Sleeping six in three bedrooms, it is the ideal property for a family break by the seaside.

Deceptively spacious, the interior of the cottage is stylishly furnished to a high standard throughout, with fresh, contemporary décor complementing the original features. Downstairs, the vibrant splashes of colour create a cheerful ambience while in contrast, the cool colours of the bedrooms exude calm.

As you enter the house, you come straight into the fabulous open-plan kitchen/dining room – a wonderful space in which to relax and socialise over a tasty meal. The smart kitchen with its Aga and American-style fridge/freezer is superbly equipped for creating meals. The breakfast bar at the island offers a handy spot for a morning coffee or an evening aperitif. The huge oak dining table comfortably seats six next to the impressive fireplace.

On the first floor you will find two beautiful twin rooms, one with an en-suite shower room, and both decorated in cool, relaxing colours complemented by soft, muted tartan blankets on the beds. Also on this floor, there’s a stunning and spacious family bathroom complete with a luxurious waterfall shower and a freestanding oval bath, perfect for luxuriating after a day at the coast.

On the mezzanine, between the first and second floors, you will discover the bright and welcoming lounge. Sink back into one of the comfortable sofas and put your feet up with a book from the well-stocked bookshelf or just relax in the evening in front of the TV.

Up on the second floor is the large master bedroom, with twin beds and a large shower room with a luxurious walk-in shower.

Outside, the enclosed rear garden offers a pleasant spot to sit and enjoy a drink in the sunshine, with a charming decked area at the far end with garden furniture and a BBQ for al fresco dining.

This house met all our needs. The wonderful Aga for family meals. Lovely warm showers in beautiful bathrooms. Cosy comfortable beds. Great location for walking and cycling the Fife Coastal paths and exploring St Andrews and Dundee..the V&A. We had a lovely time at Fulmar House.

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
