Stayed here for 3 nights this week for the Crail Book Festival. Lovely en-suite single room with glorious views over chimney pots and stepped-gabled houses to the sea and the islands. Breakfasts delicious (I do so like proper poached eggs) and Margaret is so kind and pleasant, and so informative about the local area. Next time I'll do the Fife... More

This 200 years old cottage is located in the heart of the cosy town of Crail, in front of a little car park, 10 seconds to the beach walk. If you're lucky with your booking, you can stay in the sea view room ( and its "dependance" ), so beautiful! Margaret, the owner, is a very kind person; she gives... More

This was our first time in Scotland and we went to St. Andrews to spend some time and was not able to find any place to stay plus it was too big a city so we started south and found Crail. Our first visit to Selcraig House was in 1997. We spent a week with Margaret and got to stay... More

My wife, dog and I had a very happy stay in Crail again. Crail is charming and restful of course, and had an old world charm. Margaret was extremely welcoming as always when we arrived. There is ample parking in front. Her B&B is in a very old, historic home, which is furnished with antique Victorian pieces. It was fascinating... More

We were happy we decided to stay in Crail and not St. Andrews during our visit to Fife. Crail was beautiful, of course, and had an old world charm. Margaret was extremely nice during our email exchanges when booking the room, and was very welcoming when we arrived. There is ample parking in front. Her B&B is in a very... More

Stayed here during July with my son. We were in Crail for a day's golf. The landlady is the nicest person and really couldn't have done anymore for us. We stayed in the twin bedded room, which was very comfortable (although I hate to be petty but the door hinges really could do with some oil)... Anyway, more importantly, the... More

Myself and a friend enjoyed a short stay at Selcraig as part of the Fife Coastal Path walk. Although my friend and I appreciated the uniqueness of the house, it would appeal to a more maturer traveller, preferably those travelling outside of the UK who are interested in more of a culture aspect of a stay. If you are looking... More

Very nice fourposter room with large bathroom, only the shower temperature and pressure was very complicated to handle. Breakfast was good, although I missed some haggis and also marmalade. Margaret was very friendly and helpful for our different activities.
