About the neighbourhood
Situated close to Norman's Law, and set in 15 acres of private land, Carphin is perfect for a secluded getaway with family. That being said, we are also really close to the major road networks of the A92 and M90, making Dundee and St Andrews very accessible. St Andrews is famous for its golf, but also its amazing beaches, historic university (where my wife and I studied), and cathedral and castle ruins. There are great local pubs and restaurants only 10 minutes away in Cupar too.
Getting around
Carphin is really well situated close to the A92 thoroughfare, making access to Dundee, St Andrews and Edinburgh really easy by car.
