Description

Aptly named ‘Making Waves’, this stunning property sits right on the sea shore in the pretty fishing port of Cellardyke on the east Fife coast. Enjoying a unique position and furnished and equipped to an excellent standard with Sky Sports, Wi-Fi and three good sized bedrooms, the property couldn’t be better placed for exploring the Fife coastline. The property has beautiful views towards May Island, Bass Rock and North Berwick Law from the kitchen, dining room and master bedroom. Outside the south facing garden looks right over the shore, the perfect place to relax with a glass of wine and watch the fishing boats sailing by. A short stroll brings you to the neighbouring town of Anstruther, which has a good selection of shops, pubs and The Cellar Restaurant, holder of 3AA rosettes and UK seafood restaurant of the year. For the more energetic, the Fife Coastal Path runs for 150km nearby, and for cyclists, the Millennium Cycle Way has 300 miles of quiet country roads, disused railways and forest tracks to explore. Look out for boat trips to the Isle of May, a National Nature Reserve where you can spot puffins and seals. Boats leave from the port at Anstruther between April and September.

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.
