Strathmiglo is situated in the Howe of Fife bounded on the south by the hills of East and West Lomond and to the north by the Ochil Hills.

The River Eden which runs into the sea at St Andrews rises to the west above the village of Gateside and flows through the Strath.

Five miles distant from Strathmiglo is the village of Falkland and its famous Palace country hunting lodge for the Kings and Queens of Scotland. The village is itself charming with lots of flowers and small stone cottages.

On a clear day there are excellent views from the top of the road which runs up the shoulder of East Lomond about one mile beyond Falkland on the road to Glenrothes.

Further afield about fifty minutes away are the picturesque East Neuk fishing villages of St Monans, Pittenweem, Anstruther, and Crail.

The historic town of St Andrews, famous for its ancient University ruined Cathedral and of course the Royal and Ancient Golf Club, is only forty minutes to the east.

The St Andrews area boasts at least seven golf courses of varying degrees of difficulty.

There are further National Trust for Scotland properties in the area Hill of Tarvit, and Kellie Castle. There are also the ruins of Balmerino Abbey.

Just across the Tay Bridge some 30 minutes by road is the city of Dundee with the Antarctic Exploring ship Discovery and its own visitor centre at Discovery Point.

There is also the jute museum at Verdant Works.

Dunkeld Cathedral

Some twenty minutes to the north west of us is the City of Perth, an excellent shopping centre and gateway to the Highlands. Perth has various tourist attractions most notable of which are the national heather collection at Bells

Cherrybank Garden on the south west of the City, and NTS Branklyn Gardens on the Dundee road out of the city.

The Ferguson Gallery on the comer of the South Inch and Tay Street has works by the famous Scottish Colourist JD Ferguson. The Museum and Art Gallery is also worth a visit.

The historic village of Dunkeld with its ancient Cathedral and Telford Bridge over the River Tay is 15 miles north of Perth.

While the two major towns in Fife are largely industrial, Kirkcaldy boasts a very fine art gallery by the railway station, and Dunfermline, the home of Andrew Carnegie, has its famous Abbey.

On the coast at North Queensferry is Deep Sea World, a large aquarium with its acrylic tunnel an opportunity to see many of the native fish that swim in the waters around the UK.

Slightly further afield is the Falkirk Wheel, a unique method of lifting boats some 60 feet from the Forth and Clyde Canal to the Union Canal with its access to Edinburgh.

Edinburgh, with its Castle, the Festival, museums and shops is only 40 minutes away, and Glasgow is just a little further.

Equally close at hand is Stirling with its Castle dominating the landscape for miles around, and the imposing Wallace Monument.

Gorno Grove makes an excellent centre for exploring this varied and interesting part of Scotland.
