You'll find much to explore and lots to do in the friendly little town of Crail. Speak to Graham and Edna at the Honeypot to find out more!
Spend a day at Roome Bay Beach
Roome Bay Beach is a south facing sandy beach with rock pools at the waters edge. The combination of cove, sand and rock pools results in a great day out exploring, walking and sunbathing (if you're lucky!) At one end of Roome Bay Beach is a disused swimming pool that is now a haven for wildlife. There is also a grassy area and childrens' playground. The coastline is part of the Firth of Forth Ramsar site, protecting wetland habitats and species. You can access Roome Bay Beach off Roome Bay Crescent which is around a ten minute walk from the centre of Crail and the Honeypot Tearoom and Bed and Breakfast.
Enjoy Coffee and Cakes at the Honeypot Tearoom

Walk or Cycle the Fife Coastal Path
Find out more about Fife and its many walking routes. The Kingdom of Fife Millennium Cycle Ways are a must, if you are staying with us why not borrow our bicycles and try the Crail Kellie route of 19 miles. It takes you through lots of farmland and past Kellie Castle National Trust gardens. You can detour into Pittenweem and explore the hilly wynds and closes between its fisher houses. Or just take a wee lunch with you and stay close to Crail on two wheels. It's amazing how quickly you get around and it's a great way to sneak up on wildlife, so please take our binoculars as well.

Try Your Hand at Fishing
Rods are available from The Honeypot albeit Crail is quite a rocky prospect, charter boats can be hired for up to twelve people for some better sea fishing prospects. Game options include several stocked waters for brown and rainbow trout but there are some interesting points for salt water sea trout fishing using spun fish strip or classic lures such as the abu toby or krill.
The area has some lovely eating options, ranging from quirky seafood cafes to fine dining Michelin starred restaurants. Graham and Edna know many of the local eateries and are more than happy to advise.
