Description

Reflections is a super location for a holiday by the seaside, with the picturesque harbour just a stone’s throw away. Perfect for couples, friends and families the apartment has central heating that can be controlled by Hive heating thermostat, and enjoys sea views; it is also within a few minutes’ walk from a seafood restaurant, coffee shop and local shops.
Situated in the conservation village of St Monans, it is a great place to explore with quaint lanes, fishermen’s houses and a historic church. Just at the edge of the village there is a windmill that used to power the salt panning industry. Join the Fife Coastal Path that leads either way to attractive old fishing villages, sandy beaches, secluded coves and historic buildings with plenty of places to stop off for refreshments.
It is an ideal location for golfers who will be spoilt for choice with more than 40 golf courses in Fife. St Andrews, ‘the Home of Golf’, is a mere 12 miles away with championship courses to play as well as family friendly courses. Within 10 minutes’ drive the local coastal courses at Anstruther, Elie and Leven all provide unique golfing experiences with spectacular coastal views.

For days out Anstruther offers a great selection of places to eat from award-winning fish and chip shops to a Michelin star restaurant, ice cream parlours and cafés. From April to September there are daily ferries and boat trips leaving from the harbour that take you to the Isle of May National Nature Reserve, home to colonies of sea birds including puffins, and the surrounding waters are the habitat of seal colonies. If you are interested in the history of the area the Scottish Fisheries Museum at the harbour side is well worth a visit.
After all of this sea air you will be looking for a good night’s sleep and all three bedrooms have comfortable zip and link super kingsize beds which can be twin beds on request. The attractive open plan living space looks out across the harbour and the Firth of Forth and is a great place for everyone to gather with plenty of comfortable seating in the living area, and the bright and modern kitchen is well equipped and complete with a dining table. If you want to practice your cooking skills, fresh fish and shell fish can be purchased in St Monans, and the garden, located across the road from the apartment, is ideal for pre-dinner drinks. Reflections is perfect for a family holiday at any time of the year in a beautiful coastal location. Beach 3 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 300 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.
