Here, in a quiet little street set high overlooking the harbour is The Bluebells, a delightful and lovingly restored semi-detached, traditional cottage, which has fine views over the huddled rooftops to the Firth of Forth and the coast of Lothian beyond. It has a sunny, south-facing and very secluded garden (with furniture) and decking area, ideal for lazy days and evening drinks.
The Bluebells offers excellent accommodation for up to six people. The comfortable sitting room has a living flame effect fire and the dining kitchen is very well equipped with dishwasher, washing machine and range cooker. The bathroom has both a bath and separate shower and upstairs are the three bedrooms, two doubles (one quite small) and a twin.
This is very much a traditional seaside cottage, the bright, attractive décor in hall, bedrooms and bathrooms serving as a constant reminder of the blue-skies and blue seas which we hope will be a feature of your time there. One of the double bedrooms upstairs provides particularly idyllic views of the real thing and it would be a joy to wake up there in the morning.
St Monans has shops and good eating places, including a very prestigious fish restaurant on the harbour, just a few minutes' walk from the cottage.
There are lots of coastal walks to enjoy and you can take boat trips from Anstruther (3m) to visit the seabird colonies on the Isle of May and spot the other marine wildlife in the area. Kellie Castle, with its magnificent gardens, is 5 miles inland and Falkland Palace and Scotland's Secret Bunker are other must-sees in the area.
Fife is the cradle of golf and every little village seems to have its own golf course, if you feel you are not quite up to tackling the Royal and Ancient at St Andrews - this lovely and historic town cannot fail to enchant you. The vast expanse of the West Sands there gives the possibility of an enjoyable day on the beach.
Road and rail links are excellent, making St Monans suitable too for exploring further afield. You can take the train from Kirkcaldy for a day in Edinburgh while the M90 can be reached in little over half an hour. From there you can head north to Perth and the Highlands or west to the Trossachs and Loch Lomond.
