About our home

We are happy to do non-simultaneous swaps.

Our first floor apartment, which is approximately one hour from Edinburgh and a five minute stroll down to the beach, has two bedrooms (one of which is the oldest inhabited room in the city and on tourist routes; don’t be surprised if you open the curtains in the morning to a group of tourists looking up at you!), sitting/dining room, bathroom and kitchen. Each bedroom has a double bed and one also has a single bed, plus there is a sofa bed in the sitting room.

Although I have specified that the apartment sleeps six, it can accomodate seven: two in the double room; three in the family bedroom; one adult or two children or two adults (very cosily!) on the sofabed in the sitting room (however, please note that you do have to access the double room via the sitting room).

The beautiful city of St Andrews is recognised across the globe as the ‘Home of Golf’. Golfing in St Andrews (at the spiritual heartland of the sport) is the ultimate ambition of many golfers, and is the dream that comes true for many thousands of players each year.

There are 11 courses within a ten minute drive of the city centre; there is nowhere else in the world where you will find such a concentration of high quality courses – including eight of championship class.

Many of those that use the apartment have absolutely no interest in golf! St Andrews accommodates the non-golfer as well as golfing amateurs and professionals: Visit St Andrew’s Cathedral, St Andrews Castle or wander around the Botanic Gardens and the university quarters. There is a theatre and cinema in town, and you’ll be spoilt by the number of restaurants, bars and shops. You can also enjoy a city tour, including witch and ghost tours! Relax at The Old Course Hotel or The Fairmont’s spa or, if you’re feeling energetic, try out Powerkiting or Land-Yachting.

You might be surprised to learn that St Andrews is one of the sunniest and driest places in Britain. Its excellent sunshine record and award-winning beaches have long attracted families of holidaymakers.

The acclaimed West Sands, one of the finest beaches in Britain, is separated from the golf links by sheltering dunes. Its golden sands seem to stretch forever to the hills on the northern horizon, whilst the southward view (pictured) famously features in the opening sequence of the Oscar-winning film ‘Chariots of Fire’.
