Description

The ideal location for a seaside holiday, Kannier Cottage is a detached holiday cottage, in an elevated position, overlooking the quiet conservation village of St Monans and the Firth of Forth. From your doorstep you can explore this picturesque village with its harbour and charming 17th and 18th century red pantiled buildings, enjoy a coffee on the harbourside or freshly caught seafood from the award-winning restaurant.
There are lovely coastal walks on the Fife Coastal Path which takes you to award-winning sandy beaches, pretty coves and historic buildings along the way. For keen cyclists, the Millennium Cycle Way runs through central Fife, with miles of quiet country roads, disused railways and forest tracks to explore. Just a little further along the coast is the bustling tourist harbour town of Anstruther and there are daily ferries and boat trips leaving between April and September that take you to the Isle of May, which is a National Nature Reserve. It is home to colonies of sea birds including puffins and the surrounding waters are the habitat of seal colonies. St Andrews is just 10 miles away and is well worth a visit with historic buildings, Sea Life Centre, boutique shops, and a wide range of bars and restaurants. This area is famous for its golf, with more than 40 golf courses in Fife, from the famous fairways of St Andrews to several traditional links courses and beautifully landscaped parkland and heathland courses.
Having spent your day exploring the area you can relax in the first floor seating area and enjoy the views with a glass of wine. The enclosed garden is a suntrap on warm days and a great place for the children to play. If sea food is on your menu, you can purchase locally caught fish and the dining room is ideal for you all to enjoy that special meal and plan the next day’s activities. Beach 250 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 250 yards.

About the local area

Fife was home to Scotland's capital for six centuries, the evidence of which can still be found in its many castles, cathedrals and places of historic interest. Apart from its historical heritage Fife is also renowned for world class golf courses and lovely stretches of picturesque coastline.

Long sections of the Fife Coastal Path can now be enjoyed by walkers and there are a variety of linear and circular routes which have been graded and waymarked, from which you can enjoy beautiful seacapes and spot spectacular wildlife such as grey seals, dolphins and maybe even the odd basking shark. For bird lovers the offshore islands of Inchkeith and Inchcolm are home to thousands of seabirds, including large numbers of Puffins in May.

In the northeast the gentle rolling hills of the hinterland extend eastwards to windswept cliffs, rocky bays and sandy beaches, where scenes from the film `Chariots of Fire' were filmed. South down the coast a short distance is the ancient university town of St. Andrews, home to the world-famous Royal and Ancient golf club.

St. Andrews University was founded in 1410 and is Scotland's oldest university town. The medieval town centre has narrow alleys and cobbled streets which lead to the now ruined cathedral and the church of St. Regulus, which has a spiral staircase leading to the top of a 108-foot tower, offering magnificent views over the town. There are also two great beaches, botanical gardens and an aquarium here.

South of St. Andrews the picturesque small stone harbour fishing villages of Crail, Anstruther, Piteenween and St Monans are all places to experience the un-hurried pace of life by the sea. Further round the coast there are a number of first class golf courses such as Elie and Leven Links, to name only two of more than forty golf courses in this region!

Southern Fife is dominated by Dunfirmline, Scotland's former capital. The Forth Road and Rail Bridges over the Firth of Forth to Edinburgh are the most distinctive landmarks on this stretch of coast and allow easy access to the capital for days out.
