LOCATION - Located 8 miles from St Andrews, the Home of Golf, is the Idyllic village of Ceres, with attractive pan tiled cottages standing round a central green which has led Ceres to be called 'the most attractive village in Scotland'. Projecting the quintessential example of village life, it is one of the few Scottish villages to still have a village green which is adeptly named the Bow Butts since its use as an archery practice ground in medieval times and still hosts Scotland s oldest free Highland Games decreed by Robert the Bruce. Primary and nursery education is provided locally with secondary education nearby at Bell Baxter High School in Cupar, considered to be one of the top performing schools in Fife. Recreationally Ceres is a fantastic location for countryside walks, running, cycling, arts and crafts. Coupled with good cafes, an Inn, village shop, hairdresser, museum and pottery with main shopping facilities and rail links in nearby Cupar it is the perfect proposition for anyone looking for lifestyle.
