Tigh Eilidh Cottage enjoys a beautiful setting of truly exceptional Fife countryside, just 3 miles to the south of St Andrews, the world famous home of golf. The Fairmont Hotel and the Coastal Path are just a short walk away. Located in a courtyard setting with a wide range of amenities our well equipped cottage is perfectly suited to couples, families or golfers alike. There is ample parking for guests and visitors along with a playing field for children. The cottage has been tastefully decorated with 3 bedrooms, 2 rooms have twin beds (which can be moved to accommodate different parties) and one room is a double. Patio doors lead to a private garden with a BBQ from the lounge and the kitchen and dining area are open plan. There is a family bathroom with a shower over the bath and also a downstairs WC.
Balmashie stands adjacent to the Fairmont Hotel's Torrance and Kittocks courses and other notable courses within easy reach include Kingsbarns, Crail, Elie, Ladybank and the Dukes Course to name but a few. Challenging shooting and fishing can be taken locally with some fine pheasant shoots nearby and there are many opportunities for riding with pony clubs for the younger enthusiast. The property is within walking distance for those attending weddings at Kinkell Byre and also just a 10 minute drive to the Cow Shed in Crail.
