Persimmon Homes


The village of Wormit has an extremely pleasant position overlooking the Firth of Tay in the North East of Fife. Famous for being the first village in Scotland to be connected to electricity (1889), via a windmill and steam train, the village is now better known as the home of the impressive 1887 Tay Rail Bridge to Dundee.

Your new house in Wormit has been sensitively designed to blend with the mainly Victorian houses with wide bay windows that make the most of the stunning views over the Tay. Buy a new home in Wormit, and you will have access to the Victorian primary school and parish church as well as a clutch of shops including a Post Office, convenience store and an upmarket restaurant. If you like to keep fit, the tennis club, bowling club and boating club should keep you busy - as will the miles of golf courses, beautiful surrounding countryside and beaches.

Living in Wormit

Your new home, with all the essentials covered

Embrace the slower pace of life in your new home in Wormit. Enjoy being part of a tight-knit community, where there is only one Primary School, where all the parents know one another. Enjoy the peace and quiet of a high street that has just what you need for shopping, including a  convenience store, a small Post Office, a blacksmith and a restaurant. If you'd like a bit more food shopping choice, Cupar is about a 10 minute drive from your new build via the A91 with a choice of supermarkets and shops. If you fancy city life with a huge choice of high street shops, cafes, restaurants - a museum or a movie - then head to Dundee just seven miles away.  

Your new home, well connected

Dundee is a simple 18 minute commute via the Tay Road Bridge at Newport on Tay. If you'd like to catch a bus, it takes around 23 minutes into the city centre. Perth is 26 miles and will take around 45 minutes. City travels to Glasgow (70 miles), Edinburgh (55 miles) and Stirling (58 miles) are more significant day trips. The Cairngorms National Park and Glencoe (110 miles) are both great weekend retreats. Your new house in Wormit is between two railway stations, Dundee to the north and Leuchers to the south. The nearest airport is Edinburgh with a bus transfer service of around two hours. 

Plenty to do near your new build home

While your new home in Wormit is pleasantly sleepy, its nearest city, Dundee has plenty of shopping, nightlife and culture. The Dundee Science Centre is an exciting hands-on experience, there’s Discovery Point, looking at the ship that took Captain Scott on his ill-fated Antarctic expedition and the intriguing HMS Unicorn from 1824. The city has climbing centres, historical houses, botanical gardens, the Olympia swimming pool. There’s so much to see and do, just seven miles from your new house.

If you enjoy golf, you’re spoilt for choice from your new build in Wormit with world class courses all around Fife, including 15 around St Andrews alone! If you enjoy walking, the Wormit Bay Coastal Walk is a circular trail with spectacular views of the Tay Estuary, Tay Rail Bridge and the ruined abbey at Balmerino.
