The Howe of Fife
A Hidden Gem
Auchtermuchty is a small town, nestling between the Ochil Hills and the impressive Lomond Hills Regional Park, in an area known as the Howe of Fife. As a base for a stay in the area, the location is hard to beat.
Less than 30 minutes drive from St. Andrews, Loch Leven, Perth, Dundee and providing easy access to the East Neuk of Fife and even to Edinburgh and Glasgow, it really is a fantastic place from which to explore the local area and further afield in Scotland.
Auchtermuchty itself is a traditional Fife town with a proud history. Home of the legendary 'Proclaimers', as well as Scottish country dance legend Jimmy Shand, 'Muchty (as it's known locally) certainly punches above its weight when it comes to musical heritage.
The town centre is a 5-10 minute walk from Southfield, which lies on the Eastern boundary of the town, and contains many amenities, including local shops, coffee shop, pubs, chip shop and Chinese take-away.
