About Leuchars

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.

Dundee, Scotlands 4th largest city offers Cinemas, a Leisure Centre, Ice Rink, Repertory Theatre as well as shopping and places to eat.

Nearby St Andrews has a Leisure Centre, Byre Theatre and Cinema as well as independent retailers and places to eat.
