John McDouall Stuart View is an ideal stopping-off point if you are en-route to the Highlands, looking for close links to Fife's world-famous golf courses, or walking the Fife Coastal Path. The apartment is owned by Fife Historic Buildings Trust, a local Building Preservation Trust. It is a company limited by guarantee and has charitable status. It was formed in 1997 primarily for the purpose of saving and restoring historic buildings in Fife which are at risk. We are very proud of our beautiful historic building and would love to welcome you here. John McDouall Stuart was born in this house in 1815 and later emigrated ‘down under’ where he led the first expedition to cross Australia from south to north in 1862. He is a celebrated figure in Australia, where he has a 950-mile highway named after him. The holiday apartment occupies the upper two floors of a three-storey B-listed building. The rooms have been decorated in keeping with the style of the building, retaining period features, such as the window shutters. More

About the neighbourhood
John McDouall Stuart View apartment is located in the quiet historic village of Dysart, on the outside of Kirkcaldy in the Kingdom of Fife. Dysart is situated on the east coast of Scotland and the apartment is just a few minutes’ walk from the beach. Key scenes in Series 2 of 'Outlander' were filmed at Dysart Harbour. Wander around the harbour, have a coffee and cake in the Harbourmaster's House and see why this pretty seaside spot was picked as the setting for the Jacobite drama that has enthralled millions. Within the village there is a small grocery shop, pharmacy, Post Office and a lovely kitchen deli farm shop called Nourish. Kirkcaldy is just a few minutes’ drive away where there are supermarkets, high-street stores, bars and cafes.
Getting around
Dysart is easily reached by road and is about a 45-minute drive from Edinburgh. Airlines that fly to Edinburgh from other parts of the UK include FlyBe, EasyJet, Ryanair and British Airways. There are several car hire companies at Edinburgh airport. There is plenty of space for parking on the street outside the apartment. The closest train station is Kirkcaldy Train Station, located 10 minute drive away (15-25 by bus). The train station is a main link between Fife and Edinburgh, as well as journeys to Dundee and Aberdeen. There is a bus stop a short walk from the property with a main bus line stop on the main road.
