Why Rent Our Holiday Cottage in Lower Largo Fife

Why rent our Holiday Cottage in Lower Largo Fife?



Lower Largo Lower Largo or Seatown of Largo is situated on Largo Bay at the North Side of Fife, one of the few fishing villages running along the east coast it has intriguing history. Famously it is the birthplace of Alexander Selkirk (1676) who is said to have inspired the story of Robinsoe Crusoe by Daniel Defoe. Today, you can see the life size bronze statue of Selkirk clearly on the main street and the sign at the harbour that points to the Juan Fernandez Islands that are located 7500 miles away. The Islands, where Alexander lived as a Castaway for more than 4 years.
This humble village is nestled right on the seashore, which means it boasts the most breathtaking views of the sea and spectacular eastern sunrises.  But it also hosts local amenities and is in striking distance of some of Scotland’s most famous tourists spots such as St Andrews. Its location is also perfect for sightseeing in Edinburgh as its just an hour away. Its picture perfect surroundings are an artist’s paradise but you don’t have to look far to find an activity for young and old alike.

For Golf enthusiasts there is Lundin Links Golf Club, which is only a stones throne away from the village. The club, which hosts the final stages of the open at St Andrews, is well known and is said to be a fantastic course for beginners too. Not to forget the village of Ellie further along the coast that welcomes novice sailors and experienced alike at Ellie Watersports. A perfectly sheltered harbour in the village provides wonderful conditions for learning and a safe place for children to try a different range of sports.

Aberdour Castle Fife April

Aberdour Castle Fife April

Aberdour Castle is one of  the oldest  castles in Scotland. Hidden within are the remains of a two-storey hall-house. Its masonry walls are very similar to those in the nearby parish church of St Fillan’s, dated to the mid 12th century. And the windows are identical to those in Inchcolm Abbey offshore, dated to around 1200.

Holiday Cottage Fife visit to Falkland Palace February 2014

Holiday Cottage Fife visit to Falkland Palace February 2014
Home to the Stuart monarchs at Falkland Palace, now run by the National Trust for Scotland, their country home for 200 years and of Mary Queen of Scots. Set in the heart of Falkland village this partly restored Renaissance palace is a great day out.
Part of the castle has crumbled, but there’s still plenty to discover inside the surviving sections. The original and reconstructed rooms are packed with 17th century Flemish tapestries, painted ceilings and antique furnishings.
The beautiful, tranquil grounds are worth a visit alone. They’re home to the oldest real (or royal) tennis court in Britain, built for King James V, as well as a gardens designed by Percy Cane.
