Greenlaw House is high on a hill about half way between Perth and St Andrews with beautiful views of the Howe of Fife, the fertile farming area of the valley of the River Eden, and the distant Lomond Hills on the horizon.
Converted from a farm steading, it is the home of Debbie Butler and Charles Jackson who warmly welcome guests to stay in their comfortable and well arranged bed and breakfast accommodation. The house is open and spacious with lots of books and interesting prints and pictures.
Greenlaw house is a great base for a walking holiday. Many walks can be started directly from Greenlaw House itself and you can go for miles without meeting anyone. For a magnicifient 360 degree panoramic view you just need walk up the hill behind the house. Debbie, (a very experienced walker) has maps and advice about the lie of the land, conditions and distances. Ladybank railway station is only 10 mins drive away so you do not need a car.
Local wildlife is numerous: foxes, roe deer, buzzards, rabbits (of course), occasional hares and many birds including the rare and recently released-back-into-the-wild sea-eagle.
If your purpose is golf then you may like to know that Charles is a member of the Royal and Ancient and Debbie is happy to help you with booking tee times.
