Both the Fife Coastal Path and the new Fife Pilgrim Way long-distance walking trails pass nearby whilst the fishing villages of Fife’s quaint East Neuk, which include Anstruther, St Monans, Pittenweem and Crail, are just short drive away. In terms of days out the wide-open spaces of the Lomond Hills and Falkland Estate are within reach.

Elie and Earlsferry offer good sandy beaches, along with those at St Andrews, Tentsmuir and Kingsbarns. State schooling is provided locally, with a primary school in the village of Elie and secondary schooling in Anstruther. For private schooling there is St Leonards in St Andrews and The High School of Dundee. There is a railway station in Cupar as well as Leuchars, Markinch and Ladybank.
