Scotland's 4th city Dundee is well worth a day trip when staying at Fife's best holiday cottage Neuk Hoose. Just over 20 miles away, Dundee can be reached in well under an hour by car or a bit longer by bus. If you prefer a more scenic entrance however catching the train from Leuhars gives you the chance to cross the famous Tay Rail Bridge, one of the most iconic British engineering feats. For nearly 3 miles the bridge carves it's way majestically over the estuary before entering the city.



Dundee is a city on the up, that's not to say it's been languishing in the doldrums. It has always been a centre for desigh, engineering and creating, constantly pushing boundries. The birthplace of the Dandy, Beano, Oor Wullie and the Broons, UNESCO city of design and according to GQ magazine "The coolest little city in Britain"


It's historic shipbuilding past included the RRS Discovery which carried Shackelton & Scott to the Antartic in the early 1900s. The discovery is now a museum ship housed in her own custom built dock in the sought after waterfront.

The buzz surrounding Dundee at the moment is all about the imminent opening of the V&A museum, the first institution to bear the Victoria and Albert name outside of London. Opening in September this year, it will be an international centre for design in Scotland, hosting major exhibitions, celebrating Scotland's design heritage, inspiring and promoting contemporary talent.


In between walks along the vbeach, exploring East Neuk fishing villages, historic harbours, walking the Fife Costal Path, boat trips, golfing, whsiky and gin tasting, crab and cheese toastie shacks, rock pools and sandcastles, make sure you leave time to visit Dundee, in fact maybe you need to book another week!

We were so pleased to have the lovely Ben from Itago Media come to visit us to film a virtual tour and create a floor plan for our holiday cottage in Crail.



As always the sun was shining in Crail the day of the filming and the whole process was super easy and efficient. We're so pleased with the results, I think it really helps guests to understand the space and plan bedrooms before arrival. So come on take the tour, try before you buy, Fife's best holiday cottage!

Now that we are used to the clocks having changed and the temperature is falling as fast as the leaves a beach holiday may not be top of your list.

But think again, Neuk Hoose is the ideal place for a cosy winter getaway.




Think of the bracing walks along the beach or Fife Costal Path to earn your hot chocolate or hot toddy curled up on the sofa in front of a roaring fire with a book or a movie.There is plenty to do indoors too from a gastronomic tour of St Andrews, whisky distillery tour in Kingsbarns or Gin from Edenmills.

Get in touch to hear about our winter special self catering short breaks in Fife.

We are so lucky in Crail not just to have an abundance of wildlife and wildfowl but also to have someone really knowledgeable to write about them. Will Cresswell writes an aritcle in the Crail Newsletter weekly about the goings on of the local and tourist birds of the area. Will is a professor of Biology at the nearby St Andrew's university.

So if you are planning on a stay at our holiday cottage in Crail, Fife then don't forget your binoculars!

All of Will's articles are archived on the about crail website in the Wild Crail section and are a wealth of information on our feathered friends and their antics in and around Crail.
