Redlands Country Lodge B&B Guest House - Places TO VISIT

ST ANDREWS
What can we say that's not already out there? We're only 15 miles away. History, cathedral, castle, beaches and of course, the Old Course! Try the wee East sands beach too if you don't fancy the long beach near the golf course. It's quieter and not far from the castle and cathedral.

FALKLAND
One of our families favourite places. The hunting estate grounds are fantastic for family walks and for tiring out Fido! Find Maspie Den waterfall on one of the estate walks. Enjoy amazing, organic veggie food at Pillars of Hercules log cabin cafe, tucked in the woods. Falkland Palace is an impressive Renaissance building set in the heart of Falkland, at the foot of the Lomond Hills. It was once a favoured place of retreat and leisure for the Stuart Kings and Queens of Scotland, including Mary Queen of Scots.
There are some amzing little gift shops, including The Fayre Earth gift shop, full of fairtrade, recycled gems - very unique.


PLACES TO PLAY/BE CREATIVE

BARBARAFIELD RIDING SCHOOL
The hacks are very popular as all experiences can be catered for on all the routes. The hacks go through the 300-plus acres of farmland owned by the Berwick family and the ride can be split into groups in the fields so as the experienced riders can get a canter round the field while the novices or beginners can take a short cut for a walk and a trot to catch up. Instruction is given as and when required.

KINGARROCK HICKORY GOLF COURSE
The Kingarrock Golf Course re-opened for the first time in over 70 years in 2008.
All players will be provided with original hickory clubs, an old golf bag, together with balls and tees that represent the early 20th century golfing experience. The current all-in price for play on the nine hole course is around £25 per person and includes the following: 5 original hickory clubs, golf balls, 'reddy' tees and an old golf bag, A nip of whisky or port to help get into the spirit of the 'roaring twenties' prior to teeing off, 'Da Anderson' ginger beer and shortbread on completion of the round. Min. 2 players per round.

LADYBANK GOLF COURSE
Ladybank is used as a qualifying course for The Open, and is one of the best inland 18 hole course you can play. I mile down the road from us.

THE SECRET BUNKER
Scotland’s Secret Bunker, Troywood, St Andrews, Fife, KY16 8QH
For 40 years Scotland kept a secret! Hidden beneath an innocent Scottish farmhouse lies Scotland’s Secret Bunker. 2014 marks the 20th anniversary since the Bunker opened to the public, unveiling 40 years of secrets. Take the journey down the 450 foot tunnel and through the blast doors to discover the secrets of the bunker, which was built to help safeguard Scotland during the Cold War in the event of a nuclear attack.

THE LOMOND HILLS COUNTRY PARK
Whether it's wee walk to blow away the cobwebs or a right proper hike, the 2 Lomond Hills offer breathtaking views from the top, right over to Edinburgh and East Lothian. Perfect for dogs too.

THE OFF THE RAIL ARTHOUSE
Sitauted in our very own Ladybank Railway station, the Arthouse offers lots of courses in everything from lino cutting to pop up book creation to stained glass. Also visit the artist Kirsty Lorenz in her fantastic studio on the platform - in the old waiting room.
