I would recommend this place to anyone looking for accommodation in St. Andrews. The cottage is very well equipment. Very comfy sitting area which is very spacious and are the bedroom and the bathroom. Excellent lay out. Beautiful walks along side the Fairmount Golf course of which you can use there facilities.

Comfortable accommodation in spacious grounds close to St Andrews. The furnishings are not particularly modern or luxury but the cottages are clean and comfortable and we had our own patio area with outside table. The views were lovely. There is an outside play area, field with goals for football or general play, small putting area and pitch and putt hole...

The cottage had facilities which made the stay there very comfortable; a home from home. The views from the cottage are spectacular. The cottages border on a world-class links golf course which has a path leading directly to a walkway along the North Sea coast line. The location is a great base for trips around the east coast of Scotland....

Our daughter and family, who live in Elgin, come to St Andrews each year around Xmas time to meet up with us. Unfortunately one of their children is severely asthmatic and is liable to react badly to our dog suffused house, no matter how assiduously it is cleaned before she arrives. Fortunately one of the Balmashie cottages is kept pet...
