Beach House, 8 Main Street enjoys a striking position on the beachfront in Lower Largo, just a short walk from the popular Crusoe Hotel. The front garden boundary wall adjoins the beach and the property enjoys panoramic views across the Firth of Forth towards Edinburgh and the East Lothian Coastline. Lower Largo is situated on Largo Bay and is an ancient fishing village abutting the neighbouring village of Lundin Links. The village is divided into two parts, namely Upper Largo and Lower Largo and is well known for its wide variety of charming cottages, houses, pretty harbour and beach. Alexander Selkirk, a Largo native and Scottish sailor, who spent a number of years as a castaway on an uninhabited island, is said to have inspired Daniel Defoe’s fictional character, Robinson Crusoe. A life size statue of Selkirk stands outside his birthplace at

99-105 Main Street. The village has a general store and the recently refurbished Crusoe Hotel, with further services in Lundin Links

including butcher, bakery and general store as well as a renowned 18-hole links golf course and separate ladies 9 hole course. The latter is the oldest ladies golf course in the world and the former has been used as an Open Qualifying Course when the Open Championship is held at St Andrews. Lundin Links, Upper and Lower Largo comprise the starting point of the well-known East Neuk of Fife with its many pretty coastal villages, golf courses, scenic walks, including the Fife Coastal Walk, and historic and cultural attractions. The area has been popular with holiday

makers and second homeowners for many years and yet remains within an hour’s drive of central Edinburgh and the remainder of central Scotland easily accessible via the motorway network. The principal Fife towns of Glenrothes and Kirkcaldy are within easy reach as is Scotland’s fourth city, Dundee, to the north. St Andrews with its many cultural and golfing attractions is within 20 to 25 minutes’ drive. The acclaimed new Dumbarnie Golf Course is a short distance to the east. There are rail links at Kirkcaldy and Markinch as well as an airfield for light aircraft at Glenrothes.


Having been comprehensively refurbished / modernised and subsequently run as a highly successful self-catering holiday let for several years by the present owners, Beach House, 8 Main Street is an exceptional beach-front property presented in immaculate order throughout and finished to a very high contemporary standard. At the heart of the property the wonderful bright open plan sitting room / dining rooms offers superb comfortable living / entertaining space, with wood burning stove and magnificent sea views.
