Architect designed house near St. Andrews, Scotland, Great Britain

The house is an architect designed eco-friendly new build. We have been in the house since September 2010. The house is in a small village, with about 300 people, with views of the surrounding woods and hills. The towns of Cupar( 5 mins drive) and St Andrews ( 10 mins drive) are nearby. There are frequent buses to Cupar and St Andrews, as well as the cities of Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow. There is a good train service from Cupar and Leuchars to Edinburgh, about 1 hour from our home.

St Andrews is well known as a tourist attraction, famous for golf and its university among other things. St Andrews is famous for its ruined cathedral and castle, its ancient university buildings, its pier and harbour, and its beautiful beaches, and many golf courses. Excellent walks are available in the area as well as in the more mountainous regions to the north and in Perthshire, all within about 1 and 1/2 hours drive. The famous Edinburgh festival takes place during August. The East Neuk of Fife is famous for its small picturesque fishing villages, all readily accessible from Dairsie. There are historic homes and castles in the area, such as Falkland Palace, Kellie Castle and Glamis Castle.

We are a retired professional couple - university professor and school teacher - who have used Intervac many years earlier when our sons were living at home.
