Five star fun at Red Squirrel

Whether you’re enjoying the gorgeous architecture or relaxing in the green spaces, it’s the perfect way to while away some time. For those interested in the main house’s ‘Arts and Crafts’ architectural style, a guided tour of the property is available. Less than a 10-minute drive away you’ll find the coastal city of Dundee, known as Scotland’s sunniest city. With a historic waterfront, amazing sights both old and modern, and the fantastic V&A Dundee art and design museum, it’s well worth paying a visit. The seaside town of St Andrews is known as the ‘Home of Golf’, with a 15th century golf course which is one of the oldest in the world. There’s plenty to appeal beyond just golf, though, with the spectacular ruins of the cathedral as well as a historic university. With a prime location in the glorious countryside of the Fife area of Scotland, this accommodation boasts unbeatable rural views and makes the perfect setting for a holiday where you can really get away from it all.

They also have a supreme selection of birds of prey in their Raptor World. Make a day of it and visit Dundee where you have a superb cultural scene including theatres, art museums and cutting edge architecture. It’s worth exploring the city’s heritage as well, with a visit to the new V&A building on the waterfront, historic buildings and boats, including the RRS Discovery and the HMS Unicorn. The historic seaside town of St Andrews boasts one of the oldest golf courses in the world, well worth a visit for any fan of the game, as well as three beautiful beaches and the fascinating ruins of St Andrews Castle and the Cathedral of St Andrews. Get a glimpse into not-so-distant history with a visit to Scotland’s Secret Bunker. This hidden nuclear command centre is located 100ft beneath the ground, 6 miles outside St Andrews, and was built in 1953 due to the Cold War threat of nuclear war with the USSR.  Craigtoun Country Park offers a range of play areas, rides and games for all ages. Outlander fans will be wowed by the connections to all the film locations in this area, which include Falkland, Culross, Balgonie Castle, Dysart Harbour and Aberdour. Golfers are also well catered for with the numerous courses on offer to play.
