St. Andrews house description

Located in the heart of St. Andrews and **100 yards away from the Old Course**, 10 Pilmour Links is the place to be. Be it golf, sightseeing, visiting the University or just relaxing, it can't be beat. For golfers and historians, access to the 18th green/fairway and 1st tee of the Old Course, plus the Royal and Ancient Golf Club clubhouse are just 100 yards away from the rear courtyard with the sea and beaches beyond. The sea, castle and cathedral ruins, shops, pubs, churches and fantastic restaurants are within a 5-10 minute walk. The Rusacks Hotel (which front Pilmour Links and the 18th fairway of the Old Course) is just a few doors down and the Dunvegan a few doors up.

The flat was fully renovated in 2010. With 5 bedrooms (3 en-suite) on three levels, large kitchen, spacious lounge and dining room, secure wireless internet, a printer (software available) and laundry facilities, the flat is all about comfort and luxury. Flat rental includes four bedrooms (an additional single bedroom is an owner lockout). The ground floor features the master suite with 12' ceilings, queen-size bed and en-suite, second large bedroom (non-en-suite) and laundry room. The main floor is the coupe de gras, featuring the incredibly spacious kitchen, lounge and dining rooms. Seating for 12 in the dining room and 10 in kitchen. Two en-suite bedrooms plus an owner's lockout bedroom are located on the top floor (one queen and two 6’ zip-link beds). All sheets and towels included plus hypo-allergenic pillows. Hanging closets in each bedroom, hair dryers and heated towel rails in each bathroom.

10 Pilmour really is within walking distance of the charming streets of the medieval downtown St. Andrews which boasts excellent restaurants and lively bars, scenic beaches (The West Sands beach where the Chariots of Fire was filmed and The East Sands beach near the harbour), the historic St. Andrews University, the Castle, Cathedral, museums, chapels, the rocky Kinkell Braes, St. Andrews Botanic Garden and the Fife Coastal Path (an exhilarating route for walkers and birdwatchers), just to name a few of remarkable sites that are so very easy to visit if you have an afternoon, evening or just a few minutes. For clay pigeon shooting and archery, enthusiasts should visit Cluny Clays near Kirkcaldy which is Fife’s largest outdoor activity venue. All this, not to mention the ancient architecture and so much more, make St. Andrews an unforgettable experience.

For branching out on those non-golfing days or for those who don’t play golf, 10 Pilmour is an excellent base for visiting the unique Fife coastal fishing villages (Crail, Anstruther, Pittenweem), distilleries and the northern country. Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen are easily accessible by train or car. The only problem will be having enough time to fit it all in!

For history buffs, a visit to the Falkland Palace in the picturesque village of Falkland (a favourite country retreat for the Stuart monarchs, including Mary, Queen of Scots).

Another great Castle is Glamis Castle ancestral home of the Earls of Strathmore for over 600 years. Glamis is a living, breathing monument to Scottish hospitality; a place of enjoyment, reflection, laughter and wonder for all. The castle has witnessed more than 600 years of history so why not visit and delight in sharing the many stories, secrets and intriguing tales that surround it. If you fancy some local theatre, check out what’s on at the Byre Theatre in Abbey Street.

Tesco supermarket is on the high street (5 minute walk) and Morrison’s (a large supermarket) is just a 5 minute drive so you can fill your refrigerator for breakfast and dinner or for snacks.

Upon your arrival you will find the kitchen stocked with breakfast foods and your rooms with flowers and chocolates.

                          Manager info

                          About: The property owners are California residents and enjoy their regular visits to St. Andrews. They own a local business, have made many local friends and can't imagine a better place to visit in Scotland.

                          Why St. Andrews:
                          Owning a flat in downtown St. Andrews and so close to the Old Course is a unique opportunity. With the 18th fairway and green of the Old Course just out the back door and so much to do and see within a short walking distance (golf, golf, more golf, great restaurants, shopping etc!), buying this flat just couldn't be passed by. After extensive renovations, we are proud to be able to offer it for rent to our friends, acquaintances and visitors to St. Andrews and the surrounding areas.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Spacious and updated with the modern comforts of home yet homely in a Scottish way. The beach and sea, golf, restaurants, historic sights, St. Andrews University and shops are but a few minute's walk. One can't beat being in the heart of everything one could possibly want. The lounge and kitchen are perfect for entertaining for a drinks or dinner party. With the full kitchen, lounge, laundry facilities, internet, fax and copy machine all included, we hope there's little left for you to desire during your stay.
