Apartment in Lower Largo, Nr. St Andrews, Fife, Scotland - Centrally Located In Old Village
About Neil Macdonald
We, Neil and Grace Macdonald have the good fortune to be based in Linlithgow but also to have access to this picturesque Fife fishing village. Other commitments (particularly at weekends) have greatly reduced our opportunities to fully enjoy the property as we have since our purchase in 2003, hence our decision to share the experience with visitors. The enthusiastic reaction of visiting family and friends from Britain and abroad reassured us that the flat was as comfortable and welcoming as we had always found it. Come and see what we mean!

Why Neil Macdonald chose Lower Largo
With no knowledge of Lower Largo we stumbled upon the village and immediately fell in love with the flat itself, as well as the surrounding beach, harbour and village pub and our first impressions have survived. Typically, although we had never heard of the village before driving through it for the first time, dozens of friends and acquaintances have since raved about the place with one work colleague who used to visit every summer as a child describing it as his "favourite place on earth!"
What makes this Apartment unique
To enjoy a charming flat with so many attractions within such easy reach never fails to delight. Within 100 paces of the front door you can be breakfasting on the beach, dining in the Crusoe Hotel, sitting on a park bench overlooking the harbour, replenishing provisions in the local store, or enjoying a drink in the Railway Inn or its rear beer garden. All this in a village setting where locals and visitors alike rarely fail to say "Hello!" as they pass.

Stayed at Lower Largo for an October golfing break. The property was ideal for us, warm and cosy despite the howling gale outside. Having the shop and 2 pubs very close was handy. Plenty of golf courses nearby and the Fife Coastal Path on the doorstep. Thank you for the lovely bottle of wine and shortbread which was waiting for us when we arrived.
Ground Floor Flat has everything you need for weekend break and is close to beaches and walks

Our stay in Lower Largo
The property was very comfortable and clean and had all the amenities you could ask for in a self catering short stay, next time we intend to stay longer, it was that good. Situated very close to the fabulous beach we and our dog thoroughly enjoyed the scenery and sea air. The locals are very friendly, especially at the corner shop (Andy) and the 2 local pubs who were most accommodating being dog friendly as well. Full marks to all!!
A little gem
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Lower Largo which proved a great base for our trip to Scotland.
