Description

The Horsemill is the perfect escape in rural Fife for couples, friends and families who want to spend time together. The location couldn’t be better for relaxing, unwinding and leaving the stresses of everyday life behind. This unique semi-detached building, originally the horsemill for the estate, has been renovated to provide a spacious and comfortable holiday home. A large circular living and dining room with floor to ceiling windows is bright and spacious and a great place for everyone to gather.
Set on the owner’s working sheep and cattle estate this is an ideal location for guests who enjoy walking or cycling, as there are numerous established public footpaths and walks that lead from the grounds and out into the countryside. There is so much to do in the surrounding area for all ages. Adjacent to Lochore Meadows Country Park there is a great selection of activities to fill your day including watersports, golf, fishing and bird watching. Loch Leven has regular boat trips in the summer out to Loch Leven Castle, and the RSPB Vane Farm Nature Reserve is a great day out for families and nature lovers with nature trails and hides so you can watch the ospreys and other local wildlife.
The county town of Kinross is a good place for you to pick up supplies and has a selection of supermarkets, local independent quality shops, cafés, delis, restaurants and local pubs, as well as a swimming pool. For days at the seaside, the sandy beaches of the East Neuk of Fife are within a short drive and the Fife Coastal Path takes you to secluded coves, little fishing villages, and award-winning sandy beaches with plenty of places to visit and find refreshment.
It is the perfect location for exploring the local area and beyond and although situated in a rural location, you have easy access to the M90 with Perth, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow close enough for a day out in the city. Beach 12½ miles. Shop 1 mile, pub 4 miles and restaurant 6 miles.
The Horsemill can be booked together with Parkside Lodge (ref UK10793) to accommodate up to 12 guests.

About the local area

Stirling is at the centre of the nation's national heritage, and it was here that William Wallace and Robert the Bruce won independence for Scotland. The city and its castle have had a very rich and turbulent past, being the residence of many Scottish Kings and the scene of numerous sieges and famous battles, including the Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297 and Bannockburn in 1314.

The castle is perched on a rocky crag, elevated above the surrounding countryside and is one of Scotland's grandest. Stirling itself nestles in lowland rolling hills and has a lovely `Old Town' with striking architecture and cobbled streets which wind upwards to the castle. The Old Town Jail is now a fascinating attraction depicting the horrors of life in a 19th century jail, also of interest is the medieval Church of the Holy Rude, where James VI was crowned and John Knox preached.

Stirling is an ideal base from which to explore nearby Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. The surrounding countryside is lush and fertile with peaceful slopes, rolling countryside and a scattering of town and villages such as the former spa town of Allan Water, with riverside walks and olde worlde charm and Doune with its imposing 14th century castle and award-winning nature reserve.

Perthshire is most definitely the Adventure Capital of Scotland. Here you'll find world class fishing, high level mountain trekking and lower level waymarked forest trails, great on road and off road cycling and superb golf courses. Or maybe try your hand at canyoning, microlight flights or cliff jumping!

Discover a rich diversity of landscapes and habitats that support a range of plants, animals and birds; exceptional woodlands, mighty rivers and high mountains all make this an area a haven for naturists. The River Tay runs through Perthshire to the sea and has internationally important populations of salmon and otters. Many of Perthshire lochs attract breeding pairs of osprey and Loch Leven National Nature Reserve is a magnet for wildfowl. Up in the hills red deer can be heard roaring during the autumn rut.

The small provincial city of Perth is situated on the banks of Tay and has an influential history stretching back over 8,000 years; close by Scone Palace is where many Scottish kings were crowned on the Stone of Destiny. There are many places of interest such as the pretty town of Pitlochry on the river Tummel overlooked by Ben Vrackie; here there are wonderful riverside and woodland walks, also the beautiful Loch Tay near Aberfeldy and Glen Lyon which stretches some 34 miles and has some of Perthshire's finest scenery.
