Leuchars is situated on the peninsula lying between the estuaries of the Rivers Forth and Tay. It has a parish church, dating from the 12th century, which is considered by many experts to be the finest Norman church in Scotland. About half a mile from the village is the 16th century Earshall Castle and 3 miles outside the village is Tentsmuir National Nature Reserve/Kinshaldy Beach which provides plenty of scope for woodland and seaside walks.
There are frequent bus and train services to all parts of Fife and beyond. The railway station is a 10 minute walk from the village. There is ample car parking at a cost of £1.00 per day. The local bus services connect with St Andrews and Dundee every 10 minutes Monday to Saturday and every 20 minutes on Sundays.
