Formerly part of the Kilmaron Estate, Myrecairnie Farmhouse stands in the tranquil, beautiful, rolling Fife countryside with excellent far-reaching views.  Conveniently located just north of the local market town of Cupar (2.5 miles), which offers an excellent range of local facilities and amenities with a good selection of shops, supermarkets, pubs, restaurants the property also gives speedy access to Dundee and St Andrews is also. 


Just a short drive to the east lies the ancient and historic university town of St Andrews, renowned worldwide as the "Home of Golf".  Twenty minutes or so to the north lies the city of Dundee, home to Scott's ship RSS Discovery and the V&A Museum.  Dundee provides a comprehensive offering of city shops, services and amenities.  Perth is roughly half an hour drive to the north-west and Edinburgh approximately a one-hour drive to the south.


Railway stations at both Cupar and Leuchars make ideal commuting with Cross Country and East Coast main line services Dundee.  There are also railway stations in Springfield, Ladybank and Markinch.  Dundee and Edinburgh airports are also well within reach.


Myrecairnie Farmhouse provides access to an area of particularly outstanding and varied countryside with hill, wood, river, farmland and a lovely coastline all close by.  The area is home to an array of wildlife and presents a fine choice for the outdoor enthusiast with walking, cycling, sailing and riding all readily available.  It is perhaps golf for which Fife is most well-known however with numerous top courses in a comparatively small area, including the world-renowned Old Course at St Andrews and the Championship Course at Carnoustie, both of which regularly host the British Open – the 150th anniversary event returned to St Andrews in July 2022.  Ladybank, Lundin Links, Elie, Scotscraig, Kingsbarns, Crail and the Duke’s Course are all nearby along with the many highly rated Links courses in and around St Andrews.


The lovely quaint fishing villages of the East Neuk such as Anstruther, St Monans, Pittenweem and Crail, several good beaches such as Tentsmuir, St Andrews, Elie and the vast open spaces of the Lomond hills are also all within easy reach.  In terms of visitor attractions, the area is well served by a number of National Trust for Scotland properties including Hill of Tarvit House, Falkland Palace and Kellie Castle.  There are several state primary and secondary schools in the area, with independent schooling on hand at St Leonards in St Andrews, the High School of Dundee.
