    The Stables sleeping up to 7 guests

    Escape to this wonderful, detached holiday home, nestled in the hills of the beautiful, rolling countryside of north Fife.
    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.
    S80276 is a detached, Grade II listed building, and until 2001 was S80276 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 S80276. S80276 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.

    "S80276 is a really rare house. The location beautiful but somewhat secluded. You need a car to get around. The owner is a very warmhearted person who tries his best to make your stay even more pleasant. I would surely recommend this location to anyone"
    MARTIN – 24 Aug 2018
    "Lovely and historic house, large, clean, well furnished, in a beautifull surrounding grounds. A great and special thanks to Bill for his warm and fine welcome. Sure we will return to visit again Edimburgh, St Andrew, Sterling and the area."

    Nicholas – 12 May 2018
    "This has been, without doubt our best, and most memorable experience renting a vacation home in the UK. Bill and his entire family were most welcoming and so helpful. They took a very serious interest in our doings, as if we were longtime friends. They went over and above in every way possible.Let me say, in the clearest and strongest way possible.......this is a house you want to rent!!! The house is wonderful, spacious for even the largest family, and in the middle of a beautiful area. Wonderful....fantastic.....a truly unique place to be. We had the most extraordinary time. Lots of National Trust Properties nearby. St. Andrews, Falkland, Perth, Dundee nearby."
