This is an ideal location for family gatherings and special occasions, with a large formal dining room that has been thoughtfully furnished for the occasion. The well-equipped kitchen has a range and an additional gas oven, giving you plenty of space to prepare and cook for a larger party. Afterwards you can all retire to the spacious living room, put your feet up and snuggle down in to the comfortable sofas.
The Stables is a detached, Grade II listed building, and until 2001 was the stables to Pitcarlie Estate, which dates back to 1312. It also once formed part of the Barony of Abernethy. In the 18th century, Pitcairlie was acquired by Colonel James Cathcart, of Carbiston, and around 1730 the house underwent a major programme of construction, creating a classically early Georgian country residence. The family retained the estate until the mid-1960s and had strong connections with the Royal and Ancient Golf Club in St Andrews - hence the “Cathcart Bunker” on the Old Course.
It has now been transformed into a beautiful holiday home and maintains some of the original features of the old building. The floors are Canadian maple wood sourced from an old school gym, and the entrance hall has original flagstones from the stables. The Stables has been thoughtfully furnished to provide everything you could wish for; the master bedroom has a separate dressing room and an en-suite bathroom with a large corner bath, so be sure to remember your bubblebath, and in the evening sink deep beneath the bubbles and let all your troubles flow away.
Tempting though it might be to spend your whole time here, there is plenty to do within easy reach. You are surrounded by fabulous countryside in an area renowned for its fine walking and cycling. For those wanting to give their cars a true rest, walks can be enjoyed direct from the door. Just 2 miles away is the attractive village of Auchtermuchty; medieval Falkland, which features in the television series ‘Outlander’, has an historic palace and is only 2 miles farther on. Both villages have a good range of shops, inns and restaurants. Historic St Andrews is within a 30 minute-drive and is well worth a visit. It has historic buildings, shops, fine eateries, Sea Life Centre, sandy beach and of course, is the home of golf. By direct prior arrangement with the owners, pre-ordered groceries can be delivered in time for your stay! Beach 20 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.
