Fife: the playground of kings

Balmule House and grounds are set in stunning countryside in the heart of the Kingdom of Fife. The traditional hunting ground of royalty and nobility, these days Fife attracts visitors with a mix of heritage, culture and outdoor pursuits.

Historic towns like Dunfermline, Perth and St Andrews are close by, while frequent train services reach the many attractions of Edinburgh in just 30 minutes. Local towns and coastal villages host regular farmers’ markets and annual arts festivals.

Fife is of course synonymous with golf, with everything from challenging nine-holes to championship links at St Andrews and Gleneagles.

“A mix of heritage, culture and outdoor pursuits”

Knockhill Racing Circuit is also near to Balmule for an adrenalin-fuelled day of thrilling laps in fast cars.

If you prefer your activities a little calmer and more rural, Balmule lies close to Loch Fitty, just perfect for bird-watching, nature walks and fishing. You can even bring your own horse with you for your stay at Balmule: you can keep them as well as exercise them in our enclosed fields. We can even organise country activities like falconry for small groups of guests within our grounds.

These are just some of the many activities on offer in and around Balmule. Our staff knows the area very well indeed and will be delighted to help you with more detailed information, both before you arrive and throughout your stay.
