Fife and the East Neuk
The East Neuk of Fife boasts some of the oldest and most beautiful towns and villages in Scotland. A short hop from the historic golf town of St Andrews in Fife are Anstruther, Crail, Kilrenny, Cellardyke, Pittenweem St Monans, Elie and Earlsferry, Kilconquhar and Collinsburgh, Largo and Lundin.
Numerous golf courses, coastal paths and visitor attractions are on offer - the list below should provide a good taster!
The fishing village of Crail with its cobbled streets and miniature harbour is one of the most beautiful in the East Neuk of Fife. We're slightly bias however! Our guesthouse and tearoom provides bed and breakfast accommodation in the East Neuk of Fife all year round; our Seaview bedroom is a real treat too - with stunning views out over the village and the bay.
The largest village along the stretch of Fife coast, Anstruther is a real treat and another popular location for day trips and boat trips. It also boasts some award winning fish and chips!
Pittenweem is a secluded fishing village in the East Neuk. The ancient harbour is still used for fishing to this day. Explore this picturesque little village with its winding lanes and alleyways, colourful fishing boats landing their catch and quaint architecture. If you visit between July and August, you might also be lucky enough to experience the Royal Burgh of Pittenweem Arts Festival - a wonderful event featuring many local and well known artists. Finally, you'll find it difficult to visit without sampling Pittenweem's award winning fish and chip shop!

Named after Saint Andrew the Apostle, St Andrews now has a population of over 15,000 and is a major Scottish tourism hotspot.
