Please drive round the white house, there are ‘reception’ signs that will guide you. If you are arriving early, please can you let us know. We try to allow early access where we can but need to be made aware, so we can ensure that your keys are ready, or left in the safe to collect.

We hope that you enjoy your stay with Kingask and that you find the property as you would expect. 

So that future guests can enjoy it too, we ask kindly that you comply with the following:

  1. PLEASE DO NOT SMOKE IN THE PROPERTY.
  2. PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW PETS ON TO BEDS OR FURNITURE.
  3. PLEASE USE THE CORRECT COLOURED BINS FOR RUBBISH / RECYCYLING.

Fife Council, unfortunately, only empty the bins once a month therefore you may find the bins are full from previous guests.   If your bin is full please take your rubbish to a rubbish /recycling centre.  The nearest ones are at Crail Primary School (KY10 3UW); Anstruther Co-op (KY10 3JS) and larger recycling centres in Charles Street, Pittenweem (KY10 2QJ) and St Andrews Recycling Centre, St Andrews (KY16 8PJ – next to Morrisons’ car park).  Please do not leave any rubbish on the ground at the end of your stay, even if your bin is full, as this will be charged for.

  1. PLEASE ENSURE THAT APART FROM LOO ROLL, NOTHING ELSE IS FLUSHED DOWN THE LOO!
  2. PLEASE BE CAREFUL USING AND CLEARING OUT THE FIRE.  Embers and soot can damage the furnishings.  Logs are available to buy from Gray & Pringle in Anstruther (KY10 2BJ) and the Shell garage in St Andrews (KY16 9EX).
  3. PLEASE LEAVE THE PROPERTY AS YOU FOUND IT.
  4. PLEASE STRIP THE BEDS AT THE END OF YOUR STAY AND LEAVE ANY USED TOWELS IN THE BATHROOM.
