Excellent property ,spacious with all you need for a self catering holiday . We enjoyed the views from the house - the beatiful coastline and all the near by villages and St Andrew. Lovely garden and enjoyed BBQ . Such a relaxing place to come back after a day out - we looked forward to coming back to the house after being out and about all day . Lovely area,stunning beaches , fab ice cream shop in st Andrews which the kids loved !

“Fantastical holiday home, private, great location with spectacular views and the perfect hosts”
Reviewed September 3, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The Sheilding was the perfect place to stay for my one week golfing trip to St. Andrews. I prefer to sleep in the absolute peace and quiet of the country side and the location was perfect being only a 15 minute drive into the heart of St. Andrews.

From the moment I arrived I was warmly greeted by the owners (Bob & Moira) and it soon became obvious that they had put an incredible amount of thought and care into every aspect of this home and the surrounding property.

The views were incredible, stretching from the town of St. Andrews all the way to Carnoustie bay. It was easy to find and has all of the modern creature comforts that you would want. You get the privacy without the drawbacks of being too remote or too isolated and the views are a constant remind of what a wonderful part of the world this is.

It's rare to find such care and quality in a holiday letting.

Thank you for a wonderful stay, if I'm ever in St. Andrews again this is the place that I would stay.

We will be back.

“What a wonderful location”
Reviewed August 28, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Moira and Bob created a fantastic holiday location. It is quiet, it has a stunning view and the design of the house is just great. Moira supports wherever she can and makes this a perfect holiday home. We stayed ten days in "The Shieling" and enjoyed every single one.

“Awesome!”
Reviewed July 30, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The Shieling was a beautiful place to stay. We stayed for 5 nights but really wished we'd booked for longer. The house itself was clean and welcoming and the provision of milk, cereal and chocolates was a lovely addition from the owner. Moira couldn't have been more helpful leading up to our visit and she made sure we had everything we needed, prior to our arrival. If you enjoy beautiful views and peace and quiet, this is the place for you.

“Nature at its Best”
Reviewed June 29, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The Shieling is an excellent property located very near to St Andrews. Located
uphill in the lap of nature with perfect views of St Andrews &
surrounding area. The cottage is very modern, clean, very nicely kept
and fully equipped. Its a unique experience of country side natural environment side yet
nearer to a town. Most suitable for travelers having their own conveyance .
Owner Moira was very cooperative. This is a place I would highly
recommend to anyone interested to have a wonderful experience. I would love to come here again.
