John McDouall Stuart View

John McDouall Stuart was born in this house in 1815 and later emigrated ‘down under’ where he led the first expedition to cross Australia from south to north in 1862. He is a celebrated figure in Australia, where he has a 950-mile highway named after him.

The apartment is owned by Fife Historic Buildings Trust, a local Building Preservation Trust. It is a company limited by guarantee and has charitable status. It was formed in 1997 primarily for the purpose of saving and restoring historic buildings in Fife which are at risk. Works to convert explorer John McDouall Stuart's house in Dysart to a holiday apartment were completed in May 2013. We are very proud of our beautiful historic building and would love to welcome you here.

John McDouall Stuart was born in this house in 1815 and later emigrated ‘down under’ where he led the first expedition to cross Australia from south to north in 1862. He is a celebrated figure in Australia, where he has a 950-mile highway named after him.

The apartment is owned by Fife Historic Buildings Trust, a local Building Preservation Trust. It is a company limited by guarantee and has charitable status. It was formed in 1997 primarily for the purpose of saving and restoring historic buildings in Fife which are at risk. Works to convert explorer John McDouall Stuart's house in Dysart to a holiday apartment were completed in May 2013. We are very proud of our beautiful historic building and would love to welcome you here. 

The apartment is comfortably furnished and benefits from stunning views across the Firth of Forth. The rooms have been decorated in keeping with the style of the building, retaining period features, such as the window shutters. There are all the modern facilities you'd expect - dishwasher, microwave, TV with DVD player, washing machine/dryer and free wifi.

As well as its picturesque harbour, Dysart boasts the historic St Serf’s Tower, rows of attractive whitewashed and red pantiled cottages at Pan Ha’ and the refurbished Harbour Master’s House with its visitor centre and café. The long distance Fife Coastal Path goes through Dysart and visitors can also follow a town trail, accompanied by audio guide.  The impressive and award-winning sea beams are just one of several public art installations to be appreciated.      

Please visit Owners Direct or contact The Trust directly if you are interested in renting the apartment: info@fifehistoricbuildings.org.uk or phone 01592 890060.
