About Diane Fraser

I had many happy years growing up by the sea in Pittenweem and very much wish we could spend more time there. Every time we visit we always say we must come back more often! My parents owned what used to be known as The VG licensed Grocers in the Market Place. I now live in Falkirk with my Husband Ross and two young children Ruari (7) & Alana (5). My Husband is a Funeral Director & I run a Beauty Salon from home, specialising in skin care treatments.

Diane Fraser purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Diane Fraser chose East Neuk of Fife

We went to Pittenweem for the first time in years to spend a day by the sea. We had no intentions of buying a property! As we passed the house for sale on our way to the harbour I mentioned how great it would be to have a house there! We all had an absolutely wonderful day, so much so that we decided to visit the Estate agents just to torture ourselves by looking at what we couldn't have! Well, the rest is history, we were at the right place at the right time and thankfully we managed to buy Tigh Na Mara! The house has had extensive work done and I think we have managed to create a very comfortable home from home enviroment.

What makes this apartment unique

Even though the house was extremely old fashioned and needed amounst other things a gas supply put in, lead pipes changed and walls knocked down. It had that wonderful comfortable homely feeling! Even being traumatised by the amount of work required, we just had to have it! The views are absolutely amazing and they are for ever changing. They can be enjoyed all year round, no matter what the weather. You can open up those doors and listen to the sounds of the sea while being sheltered from the wind. The house is also ideally situated, having a young family it is very important to us that the highlights of the coast are all within walking distance and we can visit other attractions with in a short drive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in a nice apartment with a magnificent view over the bay. Housekeeping was impeccable and prepare for the holidays, a Christmas tree waiting for us.

Again thank you to the owners for the quality of their service, both for the reception of the keys and pay for the sharpness of their homes, we had a great holiday.

The flat was great for me especially the view outside the back door overlooking the sea. Walking along the coast was my favourite .The property had everything I wanted and was very clean and well maintained.I will definitely go back there soon.

It was in a great location we loved the area

  • 4 out of 5
we were a little disappointed on the first view of the out side of the house a new front door would help , and the shower was a bit on the slow side , but we soon got over that and had a great week we would love to return one day .

Owner's Response: Thank you for your valuable feedback! We were so shocked to hear about the front door, we made our way along to the house to check for ourselves and found nothing more than some slight rust around the letter box which is only to be expected taking into consideration the houses proximity to the sea side. There's never been a problem with the shower before but we will certainly check it out as soon as we can! We are glad you did enjoy your holiday and our apartment and we very much hope to hear from you again.

Lovely views and comfortable apartment

  • 4 out of 5
We stayed in the lower apartment which is a lovely comfortable apartment.

The kitchen had everything we needed.

The living room was ample size.

The bedroom was comfortable - slept very well!

But the best thing about it was the views from the balcony of the ocean! Amazing! We had breakfast outside in front of the views and lukcily at the time there was plenty of sun!

Overall a great place to live in!

Brilliant wee place!

  • 5 out of 5
We had an amazing long weekend down in Pittenweem in April. The apartment was ideally located for exploring Fife and contained everything we needed for our stay. Quite big for two people, we barely turned the TV on as we were too busy enjoying the log fire and the beautiful view from the outside terrace. Within a few minutes’ walk from the local harbour bar and the town centre with it’s very tasty chip shop, we couldn’t have asked for more. And to top it all off we got engaged right in front of the fire! Definitely a weekend never to be forgotten!!

Pittenweem - tigh na mara - lower flat

  • 4 out of 5
On arrival to apartment we were pleased to find everything met up to expectations. It was like a home from home but it was private yet was a good spot to be able to visit lots of small villages.We enjoyed traveling the short distance to St Andrews.We arrived to find the apartment both fresh and clean and was easy to keep that way. Little effort even with a 19 month black Labrador who loved the safe view of the sea when patio doors were open.
