Ideal for family gatherings, special occasions, select weddings or corporate events, Pitcairlie House can accommodate up to 21 guests in five delightful properties (all graded Visit Scotland ‘4 Star’ and awarded the Green Tourism Silver Award) - each apartment being entirely individual and self-contained. All five splendid holiday properties enjoy shared use of a superb indoor heated swimming pool and sauna - they all have an internal access to the swimming pool (except Kudu UED, reached along the verandah).
They are set in a lovely rural situation, 3 miles south of Newburgh on the Firth of Tay, and 18 miles from Perth, in a 120-acre wildlife haven of woods, streams and rolling hills. Eland (UEB, sleeps 6), Sable (UEC, sleeps 4), Kudu (UED, sleeps 4), The Garden Apartment (UEE, sleeps 3) have been formed within a large Victorian wing of the owners’ 16th-century country mansion, while the Lodge (SBK, sleeps 4) is set on the edge of woodland by the end of the drive. Just 2 miles away is the attractive village of Auchtermuchty, while medieval Falkland with its historic palace is only 2 miles farther on. Both villages offer a selection of shops, inns and restaurants. Shops 2 miles.

Customer Reviews of Pitcairlie Lodge, nr Auchtermuchty, Fife - Sleeps 4
1st comment: This very well appointed cottage is ideally based for exploring the surroundings. We were blessed with the weather and didn’t need the wellies at all so were able to get out and find some brilliant walks for us and our cocker spaniel. The large fire was a welcome addition to the efficient central heating ensuring a cosy finish to each day. Feb 2012.
2nd comment: Lovely grounds with short walks - ideal to get out for an hour or so. Use of the pool is a great luxury. Dec 2011.
3rd comment: Well appointed and nice peaceful location. Feb 2011.
4th comment: Idyllic, it was situated on the entrance to the estate leading up to the main house, and just off a country road. There were agreed walks within the estate, and use of the swimming pool and sauna. It was quite, and relaxing which was what we wanted. Property was clean and tidy, enough room for two couples with one bedroom with ensuite whilst there was a bathroom next to the other bedroom. No interference from the owners. March 2010.
