2 bedroom cottage, sleeps 3-4, in rural Scottish village location
Situated in the delightful picturesque village of Freuchie, Creg-Ny-Baa offers a quiet and peaceful hideaway. The cottage is stone-built and full of character with a private south facing garden to the rear and on-street parking to the front. From Freuchie it is under an hour's drive to the Capital City of Edinburgh in the South or to Perth and Dundee in the North. It is about 30 minutes to St Andrews, the East Neuk of Fife and more than 50 golf courses, or to the towns of Kirkcaldy and Dunfermline. It is only 5 minutes away from either the picturesque and historic village of Falkland or the modern shopping facilities of Glenrothes.
The name, 'Freuchie' comes from the Scottish Gaelic, 'fraoch', meaning heather. Local tradition has it that Freuchie was the place where the French masons who worked on Falkland Palace in the 16th century lived and where disgraced courtiers were sent - 'Awa tae Freuchie, and eat froggies'! Today Freuchie is a delightful, rural village with good amenities. The Lomond Hills Hotel is just a couple of hundred yards away, as is the well stocked village shop. Bridgend Garden Centre is nearby also and the village is well served by a good local bus service.
The cottage sleeps from 2 - 4 people comfortably with room for another 2 by way of an additional sofa bed in the living room for occasional use. There is a king size double bed in the main upstairs attic-bedroom and there are two single beds in the smaller bedroom.
