Holiday Rental House
Seashell Cottage is a charming traditional “home away from home” property located in the heart of the quiet coastal village, Lower Largo. This former fisherman's cottage is situated across the road from Largo Bay making it an extremely popular location for a holiday. Apart from the beautiful beach at Largo there are also superb beaches to be found in nearby Elie and St Andrews. The East Fife costal path extends for 78 miles starting at the Forth Bridge. There is a good local pub in Lower Largo as well as a hotel at the harbour which serves food daily. Shops and restaurants are within walking distance. The village is famous as the birthplace of Alexander Selkirk, the sailor who lived as a castaway for 4 years on Juan Fernandez Island and provided inspiration for Daniel Defoe's Robinson C...Seashell Cottage is a charming traditional “home away from home” property located in the heart of the quiet coastal village, Lower Largo.
