About Nicola Bruce

A Scot who loves the East Neuk of Fife. As a professional, I ensure Elmbank is maintained to the highest standard. As a mother of 4, I ensure the house is a warm and comfortable home from home for families of all ages. And as a golfer, I can offer advice to visitors on which of Fife's wonderful golf courses to visit, with tips on securing tee times.

Nicola Bruce purchased this house in 2011

Why Nicola Bruce chose Fife & St Andrews

What we most love about Elmbank, is the view out across the golf course. Or perhaps the 100 metre stroll to Elie's landmark beach. Or maybe sleeping soundly in a luxury four poster bed. Or even sipping fine wine in the sitting room by the log burning stove.

What makes this house unique

Elmbank is a very special house. Welcoming, comfortable, spacious: a real home from home with some extra special touches such as the two master bedrooms with their mahogany four posters. What we most love about Elmbank, is the view out across the golf course towards the cliffs and sea beyond. And remember to ask us about local golf courses: take advantage of several generations' of local knowledge!

Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic stay at this beautiful house. There are so many options within walking distance to spend your day , golf, coastal walks and beautiful towns to visit nearby.

After spending the days outdoors it was great to know that the evenings could be spend talking round the kitchen table or sitting round the open fire in the comfortable lounge whilst the children played in the other rooms. A real home from home.

Friends gathering

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous traditional house, everything you need in the kitchen. Nice and toasty throughout. Kids loved the hide and seek potential as well as the table tennis in the outhouse. Location is amazing, stunning views for walks and golf. Good tracks for mountain biking. Had a great meal and enjoyed the views from the Ship Inn. Indian take away from Anstruther definitely not the best- "Eastern Touch" I would avoid in future!

We plan to return. Three families, kids ranged in age from 6 to 14.

Elie is one of Scotland's best kept secrets: the perfect holiday location for families, friends and golfers. Long sandy beaches, beautiful links golf courses, tennis, water sports, cliff walks, great pubs and close to St Andrews, the home of golf.

Come with your friends and enjoy great golf, walks, amazing scenery and fun nights out. Take a trip to the ancient city of St Andrews and enjoy local castles and quaint Scottish fishing villages in which time has stood still.

Come with your kids and let them make friends at tennis, golf, putting, water sports and on the beach. You may not see much of them.....

Come for the golf: the links courses of Elie, Crail and St Andrews are world famous, and after a busy day of golf, you can lie in one of our four poster beds and look out across the fairway.....
