The prosperous village of Guardbridge was named after the six arch bridge created in the 16th century to take pilgrims over the River Eden to St Andrews. Now a category A listed building, the ancient bridge still connects the village to its famous golfing neighbour, though now the pilgrimages take the form of visitors to the world-famous St Andrews Golf Course.

Aside from great sporting amenities, your new home in Guardbridge is in a great location for easy commutes to Dundee, just nine miles north. The village has a primary school, chip shop and family friendly Guardbridge Inn, with lovely views across the River Eden. There’s also a coffee shop, hairdressers and garage, so if you’re looking for a new build, Guardbridge could have everything you need.
