Great location if you are looking for a base for day trips in Fife. Only 20 min from St Andrews. Crail has a great grocery store, very nice organic store, butcher and bakery. The house was great, very well equipped. Lots of parking space outside. The street is a dead end (with a very nice walk down to the sea) so it was very quite. Walking distance to everything you need. The garden was lovely! I did yoga there and had breakfast there every morning : ) Very happy with Susans communication!

Response from Susan:
Hi Lisa, so delighted that you found so much to enjoy about our great little cottage in Crail - the Smoke Fired Whole Foods store is a great benefit in our village, along with the fresh shellfish at the harbour (in season) and Greens where you can buy lots of local delicacies. We particularly like the strawberries in season and raspberries which are simply delicious. Hope you'll come back to Scotland soon. Susan

About Susan

With a home in a place like Edinburgh, I get to be a tourist in my own city! You'll love it here, and I hope you'll find our rental cottage a true home-from-home.
Love taking photographs; baking cakes; visiting libraries; reading; researching family history and walking all over Edinburgh. Have even walked a marathon and 2 half-marathons round Edinburgh in the dark. Along with husband Sandy, we've owned our holiday home in Crail, Fife since 1992, and have spent many happy holidays there with our family. Our Edinburgh holiday home is in a place in the old town which has particular family significance for me (and not just because it's in an old brewery!).
Particularly like travelling by train, and hope to recreate the inter-railing journeys of my youth in my retirement. What about you?
