Set in Balmalcolm, a small village in the Kettle parish of Fife, encompassed by the low-lying Howe of Fife, the Old Manse is highly accessible and well positioned for access to Dundee, Cupar and St. Andrews, with Perth and Edinburgh also within comfortable driving distance. Good local services and amenities are available in Cupar with all of Dundee's facilities and amenities on hand across the River Tay. Glenrothes is also within easy reach, whilst the ancient and historic town of St Andrews, globally acclaimed as the Home of Golf, lies a short drive to the east. North-east Fife provides access to an area of particularly outstanding and varied countryside with hill, wood, river, farmland and coastline. As a result, there are a wide range of outdoor activities on hand with walking, cycling, sailing and riding all readily available. It is perhaps golf for which Fife is most well-known however with numerous top-quality courses in a comparatively small area, including the world-renowned Old Course at St Andrews, host to the Open Championship and the 150th anniversary event July 2022. Other notable courses include Ladybank, Scotscraig, Kingsbarns and Crail. Shooting and fishing may be taken locally and the lovely quaint fishing villages of the East Neuk such as Elie, Anstruther and St Monans are well within striking distance. There are good state primary and secondary schools in the area, with independent schooling on hand at a number of highly rated schools including St Leonards at St Andrews and the High School of Dundee. Rail transport links can be found at Leuchars, Cupar, Ladybank, Leuchars and Dundee. Dundee and Edinburgh airports are also well within reach.
