The Fife region
The East Neuk is an area of Fife in Scotland famous for its several ancient fishing villages of which Cellardyke is one with a beatifullly quaint harbour. The locals refer to this area of Fife as the "Canny Corner" because of it's agreeable micro-climate and wonderful situation.
Cellardyke is a continuation of Anstruther which is a very pretty town with boats in the harbour and interesting shops and restaurants. It is famous for its prizewinning Fish and Chip shop which is only a short walk from the house. There is a large variety of good restaurants available in and around the area.
Both Cellardyke and Anstruther are situated on the Fife Coastal Path and our house sits directly on the walk making for enjoyable walks in stunning scenery whether long or short. (Pittenweem is 2 miles, Crail 4 miles)
Anstruther hosts a number of music festivals throughout the year. Pittenweem has an amazing Arts Festival in August each year when a great number of Artists exhibit and open their homes to display their art. Crail is also a lovely Fishing village which has many galleries and one or two interesting shops and cafes.
St Andrews is only a short drive away (15 mins) and is a fabulous destination with many attractions including lovely beaches, a Castle, good shopping, some great restaurants and of course some great Golf Courses.
