Please be aware that the annual Lamas Street Market will be in operation in St Andrews from the 10th August until 15th August which affects the house as it is operated on Market Street and moves to outside South Street from 12th August until 15th August when the road directly outside the house will be closed and no car access is permitted at this time. These streets will be very busy and noise will travel from the market to the house.More
