Description

Hollybrae House is the ideal location for a family holiday with so much to do for all ages both at home and in the surrounding area. This welcoming, semi-detached holiday home is located in a quiet location in central Kirkcaldy and has been furnished for comfort and ease. It has an enclosed back garden with a hot tub, barbecue and garden furniture where you can relax and children can play.

On your door step there is a green area with a children’s play area and there is a great opportunity for shopping within walking distance at Fife Central Retail Park with high street shops and an abundance of places to eat. Hollybrae House is a great year round location with lots of events and activities in Kirkcaldy. In April the town hosts Europe’s longest street fair and for guests who enjoy the theatre, The Adam Smith Theatre offers a regular programme all year. Kirkcaldy Galleries is well worth a visit with national collections of work to view including that of Jack Vettriano, who was born in the area. There are some great walks to be had locally, and the esplanade and beaches overlook the Firth of Forth where you can join the Fife Coastal Path to venture further afield. The local parks have woodland walks and formal gardens and the town has a rich history with historic buildings to visit including the ancient Ravenscraig Castle.

This area is known as the Fife Riviera and a little further along the coast are the seaside towns of Burntisland and Aberdour, which has a pretty harbour and two white sandy beaches and walks along the cliffs. For guests planning to visit the Edinburgh International Festival or one of the many events throughout the year, the bustling city of Edinburgh is only 25 minutes away by train and you can enjoy the city without the stress of parking. The sofa bed in the living room can be available for guests with limited mobility by prior arrangement with the owner. Beach 3 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 800 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 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.
