We stayed 5 days at the Shielling in October 2017 and really enjoyed the place. We are a family of four (2 adults and 2 children of 4 and 6). The property is very clean, well maintained and very well equipped with everything you need. The atmosphere in the house is very comfy and warm. There are games for children in the house and also outside in the lawn above the house. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and family.
The house and views were stunning. Moira, and her huband were both very welcoming and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed staying at The Shieling and exploring the area
warm, comfortable,stunning views, owner very helpful, close to St Andrews & Dundee plenty to do and shopping.
The Shieling is an idyllic house with the most amazing view. We arrived late afternoon and were blown away firstly with the panoramic view and then with the interior of the house which was beautifully appointed with everything you could possibly need. My husband and I were on holiday with my brother and his wife and we were visiting local villages where my grandparents had lived and where we had holidayed as children. The surrounding countryside is beautiful & St Andrews is a must for a visit. We also had lunch at Alibob at Cairn O Mohr-Errol - a quirky place well worth a visit. Also, pick up fresh fruit from the many fruit farms in the area. All in all we had a fantastic time and always looked forward to getting back to The Shieling at the end of the day. Thanks too to Moira who gave us a lovely welcome along with some delicious strawberry tarts! We'll be back!
The sheiling is a beautiful place to stay, with views to take your breath away. If you would like a tranquil peaceful place to stay you should absolutely come here. You will receive a very warm welcome from Moira, who is a wonderful host.
The lodge is approximately a 15 mins drive from st. Andrews, which has amazing coastal walks, and history to enjoy, there are plenty of restaurants to choose from in st. Andrews to enjoy a delicious meal.
When we arrived Moira greeted us warmly; she was friendly, generous, helpful and available if we needed anything. The Shieling is a relatively new house with every modern amenity. Every appliance in the modern kitchen works well; the leather sofas in the large lounge were very comfortable, wifi was fast, house is heated, plenty of hot water, beds were comfortable, washer and dryer work well, and every room is extremely clean. The view out the large windows is spectacular and it's only a 20 minute ride to St Andrews links. We thought it was excellent.
From the views, the space, the interior design, the friendliness, the wild life, the peace and serenity of the cottage made our stay perfect. 4 days was far too short.
Moira and Bob are a very special couple who keep the whole of the cottage and their grounds perfect. Their extra thoughtful touches and attention to detail were very much appreciated.
