Description

Hilton Farm Steadings is the perfect location in Central Scotland for couples, a group of friends or families to spend time together and explore this attractive area. Located on the north shores of the River Forth on the outskirts of the port town of Rosyth, there are lots of places to visit for all ages. It is a delightful semi-detached stone cottage, finished to a very good standard, with quality fixtures and fittings throughout. Part of a steading conversion and set around a shared courtyard, the cottage benefits from a private enclosed lawned garden.
The charming coastal villages of Limekilns and Charlestown can be reached in under 5 minutes. There are sandy beaches, old harbours and great views of the Forth Bridges across to Edinburgh. With frequent trains from the local railway station you can be in the centre of Edinburgh in less than 30 minutes. The location is ideal for attending many events including the Military Tattoo and International Festival with world class performers and free street performers. The historic city has a great abundance of attractions including the magnificent Edinburgh Castle, and Princes Street with shops galore.
In the area and within a short drive are many historic houses and castles including Dunfermline Palace and Abbey, the final resting place of Robert the Bruce and 11 Scottish kings! If you follow the epic TV series Outlander, then many of those locations used can be reached in less than an hour including Culross, Hopetoun House and Linlithgow Palace.
Golf is also widely available as the area has some excellent local courses and the famous golf course at St Andrews can be reached in less than an hour.

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 Dunfermline, Scotland's former capital. The Queensferry crossing, the longest bridge of its type in the world, 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.
