This is a Scottish Castle full of character and history. The room was great and the owners even left champagne glasses out when they saw our birthday bottle in the fridge. The owners were very friendly.

This was probably my favorite location of all during our 2 week visit to Scotland. It didn't have a fancy breakfast or reliable wi-fi, but it was in a beautiful castle set back from the road in the middle of almost nowhere (make sure to street-view the location before you go because it's not marked with a sign). The owner, David, was more than happy to suggest restaurants and things to do in the area. He even gave us the room with the best wi-fi connection, since our US-based phones were having difficulty getting any service outside of major cities. The wi-fi lost connection a little, but worked well enough during our stay to get us set up with our next day's itinerary. The room was spacious and included a small but separate kitchen, and a good continental breakfast was provided. The room even included a little table set with beautiful china for breakfast. Our favorite part, besides being in a castle, was the short walk David told us about that led to an ancient Druid holy site. This was one of the highlights of our trip, and I will recommend Stravithie Castle to any of my friends who plan to travel to the area.

A Great Find
Stravithie is about 5-miles from St. Andrews on the road to Anstruther and is only a couple of miles from Scotland's Secret Bunker tourist attraction which we visited and found truly fascinating. Stravithie Castle is not easy to find, but I called ahead and was given very good directions, so found it without too much bother. It is set back from the road along a fairly long wood-lined private avenue that gives it a rather grand appearance. The house and gardens are beautifully maintained. The owners, David and Renate were so accommodating and friendly. We felt that they treated us like old friends. Stravithie Castle is their very comfortable home, which David kindly gave us a tour of and he told us about its fascinating history. Our room was 'downstairs' in what would have been the servants' quarters in days of old. We accessed it via a hallway beautifully furnished with antiquities and books. The room itself was spotless with a bright, clean bathroom. The shower worked very well; the water was hot and the flow strong. The floors are all original wood with lovely rugs dotted about. The bed was large with a statement headboard and looked out onto the manicured grounds at the back of the house via floor to (high) ceiling French doors.
