See and Do


Kilrenny Mill Coastal Escapes are placed in the heart of the East Neuk of Fife (Neuk is an Old Scots word for ‘nook’ or ‘corner’) which is well established for comprising endless picturesque coastlines and charming fishing villages.

Our holiday apartments are situated directly on the Fife Coastal Path providing a walking link to other Fife coastal villages and towns including Crail, Elie and St Andrews. While exploring the trail, don’t miss the adorable highland cows by the sea – just 10 minutes from our properties on the route to Crail.

Cellardyke tidal pool is just yards from the doorstep; a popular spot for open water swimming, paddle boarding and kayaking.

Situated adjacent to us is the historic harbour town of Anstruther which is home to unique local shops, restaurants (including a Michelin-starred restaurant, The Cellar) and some of the best fish and chips shops! During the summer months there are also regular boat trips to the Isle of May where you can see Puffins and seal colonies.


A Stone's Throw Away from the Home of Golf

Our properties are just 15 minutes drive from the historic coastal town of St Andrews, also known as the home of golf. 

Follow in the footsteps of golf legends at the oldest golf course in the world, The Old Course, and learn all about the history at the award-winning World Golf Museum. Alongside the St Andrews links courses, Kingsbarns, Dumbarnie and Crail, to name a few are all within a short driving distance from our properties.

While in the University town, step back in time by visiting St Andrews Castle and Cathedral or visit the wide array of unique shops, award-winning restaurants and cafes.

Adjacent to the town is St Andrews West Sands beach, almost 2 miles long and famous for the opening scenes of the film Chariots of Fire. 

Explore Nearby Cities including Scotland's Capital

While staying with us, why not explore Scotland’s capital city? With endless cobbled streets and colourful character, all backed up by the beautiful city skyline, Edinburgh is the ideal day trip for couples or families. 

Take a trip to the famous Edinburgh Castle or explore Edinburgh’s deep history at the Real Mary King’s Close. Just over an hours drive from our properties or a simple train ride from our nearby train stations in Fife.

Going North, you’ll be met with the sunniest city in Scotland, Dundee. Home to the first Victoria and Albert Museum outside of London and the infamous RRS Discovery, you’ll have so much to explore.


Your Gateway to the Highlands

You can’t come to Scotland without visiting our beautiful Highlands. Our properties are within just a couple of hours from the pure, natural beauty of the Highlands that is unmatched from the rest of the UK.

With welcoming people, a unique culture, dramatic landscapes, romantic castles and a fascinating history, this is the perfect backdrop for your next Scottish adventure.

Look out for Puffins on the Isle of May

We are fortunate to be located on the doorstep of Anstruther where there are daily boat trips between April and September to the Isle of May.

The trip on the boat lasts around 4.5 hours in total, including 2.5-3 hours ashore on the Island. If the weather allows, enjoy a slow circumference of the Island on the boat which provides visitors an opportunity to witness spectacular scenery and wonderful wildlife from the sea. Dolphins often display an amazing show!
