Local Attractions

The East Neuk of Fife is without doubt the jewel in the Kingdom’s crown. Lush, green countryside, golden beaches and rugged cliffs intersperse with delightful fishing villages, breathtaking coastal walks and the world’s best golf courses. Detailed below are a few ideas for some great days out and at reception you’ll find a host of leaflets detailing all the best local attractions St Andrews has to offer.

Walking

The breathtaking Fife Coastal Path passes along the edge of St Andrews Holiday Park, so why not get on your walking boots and absorb the abundance of wildlife as seabirds soar above the waves and seals bask in the sunshine? Tentsmuir National Nature Reserve, just north of St Andrews, is well worth a visit and here you can stroll through towering pine trees and walk along the dramatic windswept beach taking in the wildlife as you go.

Golfing

St Andrews Holiday Park is enviably positioned at the heart of the ‘home of golf’. Whatever your budget there’s a course for you – be it the Old Course at St Andrews, where the game started 600 years ago, or say Anstruther with one of the toughest par 3s in the UK.

Birdwatching

From sand martins and eiders to red-breasted guillemots and the rare surf-scoter, the East Neuk is a twitcher’s paradise. Curlew, red shank and oystercatchers are regular visitors to the Park and others, such as puffin and artic terns can be viewed by taking an exhilarating boat trip from nearby Anstruther to the Forth’s Isle of May.
