Historic Accommodation in Edinburgh & Fife

Welcome to Edinburgh, capital city of Scotland and welcome to the ancient Kingdom of Fife.

St Andrews, the undisputed home of golf, is perhaps the most famous destination within the ancient Kingdom of Fife but there is so much more to see! The delightful fishing villages of the East Neuk, historic Falkland Palace, the rolling hills, the ruined castles and of course the coast – the sandy beach at St. Andrews was the location for the opening shots of the film “Chariots of Fire”.
