Our Inspector's view

This 300-year-old former coaching inn enjoys a rural location and is close to St Andrews. The Peat Inn is spacious, very well appointed and offers rooms that all have lounge areas. Expect welcoming open fires and a relaxed ambience. The inn is steeped in history and for years has proved a real haven for food lovers – the three dining areas create a romantic setting, and chef-patron Geoffrey Smeddle produces excellent, award-winning dishes (please note, no children under eight at dinner). An extensive continental breakfast selection is served to guests in their bedrooms each morning.

About the area

Discover Fife

This 20-mile wide peninsula between the Firth of Forth and the Firth of Tay is an ancient kingdom, once the home of Scotland’s kings and saints. Despite its modern bridges it still seems curiously detached from the rest of the country. Travelling along Fife’s grand coastline reveals a fascinating legacy of caves, castles, and ancient fishing ports. Blend coast and countryside by following stretches of the Fife Coastal Path, or take an exhilarating trek in the Fife Regional Park.

St Andrews has a unique place in Scotland’s heritage. According to legend, the city was founded by St Regulus in the 4th century, who was carrying relics of St Andrew, patron saint of Scotland, when his ship was wrecked off the coast. Thereafter, the town grew as an important religious centre, eventually home to the largest church in Scotland, now an attractive ruin, with the powerful bishops wielding great influence over church and state. Today, St Andrews is famous for its university, the oldest in Scotland, and as a world golfing mecca. The Old Course at the Royal and Ancient Golf Club claims to have 15th century origins and to play a round on these hallowed links is many golfers’ dream.
