Less than twenty miles to the north lies the city of Dundee, already home to Scott’s RSS Discovery and the location of the V & A museum.

The pretty fishing villages of Fife’s quaint East Neuk such as Anstruther, Elie, Pittenweem and Crail are just a short drive to the south whilst in terms of days out the wide open spaces of the Lomond Hills are close at hand along with a number of popular National Trust for Scotland properties including Hill of Tarvit outside Ceres, Kellie Castle and Falkland Palace.
