Retire to the Scottish coast

As the days get longer and brighter, now is the perfect time to move and enjoy your retirement in coastal bliss.

Vibrant seaside communities are often the first choice for retirees looking to make the most of their golden years. With Scotland’s beautiful coasts offering an array of activities on your doorstep, The Walled Gardens in St Andrews is no different.

The location is ideally placed to make the most of your life in St Andrews, just a short walk from the beach as well as the heart of the town, giving you the best of both worlds.

Did you know St Andrews has been named as Scotland’s top seaside destination? According to the Which? Annual 2020 Survey Results, which revealed an average customer rating of 81% and a scenery rating of 5/5.

This only adds to the fact that living near the coast has benefits for your health, especially your sleep, mental wellbeing, and ability to relax. This is thought to be down to the sea air which has a higher concentration of oxygen, which makes it much easier to absorb.

Not only does living by the coast boast many health benefits, it also means there are plenty of activities on your doorstep. A host of walks can be found from The Walled Gardens, with a mix of longer, more strenuous walks to short and scenic.

The town is also host to a number of cafes, bakeries and local independent shops, and bustling weekly markets, meaning you’ll never be short of places to go or things to do.
