About the Owner

Ian and I live in London,England and purchased Tay for Two when our daughter move to Scotland with her husband and our two grandchildren. We visit as often as we can but due to other duties this is not as often as we would wish.

However we make no apologies for keeping Tay for Two well maintained and homely as we would wish to find it on our arrival and our local housekeeper helps us to keep the holiday home fresh and clean between rentals.

We enjoyed our stay in this comfortable and nice holiday house very much. There is lot to explore: New Port on Tay with few shops and a post office and actually one Pub and a cafe, Dundee with the Bridge View Restaurant, Stonehaven and stunning Dunnotar Castle about 60 miles in the north and of course a walk at the beach of Tentsmuir. Don't miss St. Andrews, famous for the Cathedrale (destroyed about 500 years ago, but the ruins are gorgeous) and the oldest golf course in the world.

From the Owner

Tay for Two is a delightful self contained bungalow in the Heritage town of Newport on Tay,situated on the south bank of the River Tay and looking over to Dundee City with the Sidlaw Hills over to the west. With excellent transport links this is a wonderful area to discover the East of Scotland. Many destinations can be reached by bus from outside your front door and Dundee bus and train stations. Glasgow , Aberdeen and Edinburgh all but an hour away by train. St Andrews, Carnoustie and many other Golfing clubs are situated nearby and with the Fife Coastal Path running from Tay bridge round the coast down to Edinburgh their are great opportunities for walking and cycling as well as many other activies.

Special interest holidays:

Walking and cycling:

I put these together as its very possible in this area that where you can go walking you can also cycle due to the extensive cycle routes, two of which The Salmon run and The Firth of Forth are available at Tay For Two, only for the serious though.

Of course the obvious route is The Fife Coastal Path which runs from the foot of the Tay road bridge southwards around the coast and ends at North Queensferry, the Fourth road bridge I’ve never done the whole route but Tayport and into Tentsmuir forest is an very enjoyable day out the beach is vast backed by sand dunes and then disappearing into dense forest of varying types. Can be reach by car but take a £2 coin for the car park barrier, lasts all day and there are toilets in the car park/picnic area.


Waterfront only 5 minutes walk on high street, Wormit beach (river) 5 minutes drive, Tentsmuir Forest and beach (sea) with wonderful birdwatching, 20 minutes bus or car. St Andrews 25 minutes by car or 30 minutes by bus from outside the front door.

Boughty Ferry Town, Castle museum and beach 35 minutes (river).


Dundee has an airport that receives flights daily from London City airport the flight time is just over the hour and and as the plane is small and of low altitude the views on a clear day coming into land over the river Tay, are spectacular.

East Coast trains from Kings cross to Dundee take on average five and a half hours depending on the scheduled stops usually; Peterborough, Doncaster, York , Newcastle, Edinburgh. Choose a direct train if you can though.


You can save a lot on fares if you book on East Coast web site up to 3 months in advance and reserve your seats.

You can also travel from Euston on Virgin trains via Glasgow. The journey on the west coast may be faster but you have to change at Glasgow to get to Dundee. By car, easy just off the A92 dual carriageway South of the Tay road bridge. Directions will be given.

By cycle! Phew your brave. Let the train take the strain but don’t forget to book your bike in.

There are excellent travel connections to Dundee, Perth, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen by train or coach, also there are many bus services from Dundee bus station to all parts of Fife and Angus.

Tay for two is warm and comfortable in winter on return from a day participating in one of many outdoor activities: fishing, birdwatching , walking, cycling, shooting and golf.
