About Hill of Tarvit
French Chippendale-style furniture and paintings by Raeburn line the family rooms of this Edwardian mansion house, completed in 1906 by the architect Sir Robert Lorimer. 'Below stairs', the kitchen and pantry have been perfectly preserved to give an insight into the work of the servants who kept the household running.

The estate lies among a patchwork of rolling farmland, and has its own superbly kept sunken rose and kitchen gardens, as well as a restored Edwardian hickory-club golf course.

About the area
Hill of Tarvit lies just outside Cupar, ten miles from St Andrews, home to Scotland's oldest university and the world's most famous golf course. Fife's East Neuk is a short drive away, offering pristine beaches, picture-perfect harbours and delicious fresh seafood.

The nearest shops are 1 mile away in Ceres and 2.5 miles away in Cupar.

Things to do

  • Head to Anstruther for a stroll along the harbour. After taking in the views across to the Isle of May and the pastel and white cottages lining the shore, grab some award-winning fish and chips at the Anstruther Fish Bar.

  • For a day at the beach, St Andrews's West Sands, Elie's Harbour Beach, Burntisland and Aberdour's Silver Sands all have Blue Flags, meaning they are clean, safe and offer good facilities.

  • Spend a day in Renaissance paradise at nearby Falkland Palace. The country retreat of the Stuart Kings was a favourite of Mary Queen of Scots and is filled with elaborate antique furnishings.



Getting there
Hill of Tarvit lies off the A916, 2 miles south of Cupar and 1 mile from Ceres. Cupar Railway station offers the closest train links.

About Kincaple
West Sands and East Sands have been recently refurbished to high specifications from the 17th century stables buildings of the original Kincaple House, and lie in secluded, wooded grounds away from the bustle of the town of St Andrews. West Sands is built on a long, narrow layout, following the pattern of the old stables, and has a long, windowed corridor on the courtyard side where the coastal light pours in. Every bit as beautiful, East Sands is built around an L shaped floor plan.

About the area
Kincaple is just outside the medieval city of St Andrews, home of golf and Scotland's oldest university. A 5-minute drive brings you to the legendary Old Course, along with the beaches, castle, cathedral ruins, shops, bars and restaurants of St Andrews. Edinburgh is an easy day trip (an hour on the train from nearby Leuchars or just over an hour in the car) and Glasgow isn't much further! Kincaple is also within easy reach of the coastal paths of the East Neuk of Fife and its picturesque fishing villages, the Angus glens, the Cairngorms, Perth and the gateway to the Highlands - all making these cottages the perfect base for exploring Central Scotland.

Things to do

  • Take a visit to Cambo House to admire its magnificent gardens.

  • Scotland's Secret Bunker is just a short drive away - discover how Scotland would have been governed from 100ft beneath the Fife countryside in the event of a nuclear attack.

  • Nearby Hill of Tarvit Mansion and Garden (NTS) is a magnificent Edwardian mansion that houses a splendid collecion of furniture, porcelain and paintings. Keen golfers will especially enjoy playing the 9-hole golf course with original hickory clubs..


Getting there
Kincaple is 2 miles from St Andrews, just off the A91.
