The Fife region
The East Neuk of Fife has been described as "Scotland's Riveria" it consists of beautiful fishing villages such as Pittenween, St. Monans and Anstruther and the lovely coastal villages of Elie, Kingsbarns, Upper Largo and Lower Largo and not forgetting the most famous golfing town of St. Andrews.
The weather as everyone knows in Scotland can be "Unpredictable" but usually during the summer months we do enjoy mostly warm weather and sunshine however it is always advisable to be prepared so do bring rain jackets and coats!
The Crail area
Crail was made a Royal Burgh in 1300 by Robert the Bruce and Marketgate which is in the centre was once the largest medieval marketplace in Europe. Crail is steeped in history and Crail Harbour is the most photographed harbour in Scotland. On a Saturday and Sunday there is a small wooden hut beside the harbour where fresh lobster and crab can be bought. There is also a quaint art gallery and coffee shop just a few yards up from the harbour which serves delicious homemade scones served with fresh cream and Jam. The Golf Hotel which dates back to 1700 is a nice place to go for a pub lunch or dinner. The town has its own Butchers, Bakers and Fruit and Vegetable Shop. It also has two small convenience stores which stock most provisions you will need for your holiday or if you require a greater range or source of produce we recommend several large 'supermarkets' in our information sheets. There are two art galleries and a pottery shop. In July there is the Crail Festival which runs from the 20th to the 31st and there are open air concerts, Ceilidh, Sandcastle Competitions and Ghost Walks.

We had a fantastic 2 weeks in this great house. Beautifully fitted out and so close to the beach,playpark and rock pools. We spent hours catching crabs and at the playpark with our two children 8 and 5. Crail is a gorgeous holiday village and everything is close by. Maureen and Ken (owners) couldn't be more helpful or welcoming.

We visited Crail for a friend's wedding and were absolutely delighted to find such a lovely place to stay. The Coach House is beautifully furnished and thoughtfully equipped with absolutely everything you could possibly ever need during your trip. Maureen and Ken were really helpful and we would highly recommend the Coach House to anyone thinking of visiting Crail or neighboring St Andrews.
