From the front door of this delightful, first floor apartment, you can spend time exploring the picturesque coastal village of Culross, with its cobbled streets and lanes, painted houses and red pan tiled roofs dating back to medieval times. Visit Culross Palace and Gardens and Culross Abbey, or step back in time and stroll up Back Causeway, a cobbled alleyway which has a raised central aisle that was used by noblemen to separate them from the ’commoners’.

Wandering around Culross gives you a unique opportunity to walk through history and experience what 17th and 18th-century towns in Scotland would of looked like at the time. As such, the town has been used for film locations including ’The Little Vampire, ’A Dying Breed’, ’The 39 Steps’ and ’Captain America: The First Avenger’. More recently, it has been used in the mystical and spellbinding TV saga ’Outlander’, where the town was transformed into the fictional village of Cranesmuir where Geillis lives. If you would like to follow in the footsteps of the characters from Outlander, then there are many of the other locations within driving distance, including Blackness Castle, Linlithgow Palace and Hopetoun House.

For walker and cyclists, the Fife Coastal Path passes through the village taking you along the shore to nature reserves and pretty villages. Only 30 minutes drive away is Stirling and Edinburgh Airport, where you can use the park and ride for easy access to the city centre. Beach 3 miles. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 300 yards.

“Extremely cosy and welcoming”
— Evelyn, 7 December 2021
“Welcome pack was above and beyond what we have ever had , a real treat. Right in the town centre with a restaurant only 2 minutes walking distance, it has views out front and over the sea. All in all I cant fault it.”

“Sandgate is a lovely cottage we would definitely stay there again, only downfall bit if a squash parking the neighbour put out his bins across so we couldn't park outside , even though it's shared parking, but it didn't to us as we could easily park on the street.”

“Lovely cottage in a very scenic village. Well equipped cottage with dishwasher, washing machine and coffee machine. Nice welcome pack. No shops in the village, but enjoyed a meal in the pub and lunches and coffee at the tearooms.”

“We had a lovely stay. The welcome package that was left for us by the owner for when we arrived was very nice.Although there is no allocated parking, it was never a problem and you can park very close by.Only problem we had was with the local Chinese takeaway. We ordered it over the phone and it never turned up. When chased, they just did not care.There are some lovely walks.The tea rooms are worth a visit and are nice and friendly.”

“This is the second time we've stayed here and it won't be the last. Long before the COVID and staycation era, we fell in love with Scotland, and Fife has some real pearls to visit. Other dog owners will know some of the difficulties in finding decent places to stay with the dog, look no further.Culross is a postcard and the view from the lounge window is the ultimate postcard picture. There's days out galore within an hours drive; Falkland and a walk in the Lomond Hills a must, The beach at St Andrews (although better when the students aren't around). Also don't overlook some less obvious closer to home; Pittencrief Park is lovely as is Devilla Forest for a dog walk. I love it here, the place and the people.... Treat yourself and go.”
