It features in Nigel Tranter’s novel, The Lion’s Whelp, which can be read during your stay.

The former are part of the ’Fife Riviera’ and Kirkcaldy has lovely parks, where there is also a friendly, weekly 5km park run, and the esplanade looking over the Firth, with a good selection of shops, a super museum and art gallery, the Adam Smith theatre and a sandy beach.
    There is golf at Aberdour and Kirkcaldy, and St Andrews, the home of golf, is only 26 miles away. The charming fishing villages of East Neuk are also within easy driving distance and the local railway station has links to major cities and towns, with Edinburgh just 25 minutes. The Forth Road Bridge and Deep Sea World are 12 miles away. No matter what you choose to do during your stay, Piteadie Castle Cottage awaits your return with the bright lounge complete with a wood burner.

    Had a really relaxing 4 days away in this peaceful cottage, just what I needed, quiet hard to find if you don't know the area, could do with a better sign on the main road.

    This is a warm, comfortable, well equipped cottage in an enchanting setting. It's also very well placed for visiting Edinburgh and all that Fife has to offer. After a day of sightseeing, we really enjoyed strolling the grounds, and looking out for the hares, pheasants and deer.

    The cottage and castle were quite over whelming, it had everything we needed for our stay. The beds were comfortable and clean ,and lovely comfortable pillows as I usually have to use my own. The lounge was cosy and nice like the rest of the place. Beautiful modern kitchen,with all you need in it. It was our first stay in Scotland ,and would love to stay there again ,especially as it was only a thirty minute drive to Cupar where our father is in a care home. The highlight was Henrietta the hen who came to see us before we left.

    A spacious, clean and internally modern cottage. Well positioned for Edinburgh and Dundee, and villages in between.
