The Fife region

North East Fife is, in our view. the best place to holiday in Scotland. It has something for everyone. Lovers of history will enjoy visiting the museums and historic buildings ranging from Falkland Palace to local National Trust properties such as Kellie castle near Pittenweem and the ruins of St Andrews Cathedral and Castle. For those who enjoy the outdoors there are opportunities to sail, fly kites or play tennis and you'll find delightful scenery to enjoy while walking, cycling or even horse riding. Fife also boasts numerous golf courses ranging from the world class links courses in St Andrews and Kingsbarns to beautiful parkland courses and shorter holiday courses to suit all abilities. There are gardens to visit and a variety of interesting shops to browse. Food lovers are also well catered for with visitors able to enjoy an enormous range of options from delicious takeaway fish and chips to eat on the harbour wall to gourmet Michelin starred restaurants. The climate in this area is probably the best in Scotland but, if you are unlucky with the weather there is still plenty to do. You might want to visit an art gallery or one of the local museums or you might want to take the kids to the Aquarium or the cinema in St Andrews

Pittenweem

Pittenweem is a picturesque village in the heart of the East Neuk of Fife. Its harbour and quaint buildings feature on several Visit Scotland promotional videos. It has become famous for its annual ten day arts festival in early August when a large number of houses and outbuildings are used to showcase some incredibly talented artists and craftspeople. The village still boasts a working harbour where you can see the boats deliver their catch. It is a wonderful location from which to explore the East Neuk and the rest of Fife. Visitors can enjoy the coastline by walking along the Fife coastal path which links Pittenweem to Anstruther, St Monans, Elie and Crail. Nature lovers will be delighted if they spot seals and/or dolphins and various seabirds. Why not walk through pretty St Monans to Elie and have lunch in the beer garden overlooking the sandy beach. Alternatively stroll along to Anstruther and sample some of the local prawns and chips.

Pittenweem has a butcher, bakery, general store, pharmacy, newsagent and post office. There are two pubs/bars selling food, a takeaway fish and chips shop, two cafés (one of which has a fantastic chocolate shop). An old fashioned sweetie shop near the harbour also sells ice cream that you can enjoy while watching the waves. We also have several small galleries and craft shops.

St Andrews with its numerous tourist attractions is a short drive (15 minutes) from the village.

"Wonderfully welcoming East Neuk retreat."

I stayed here with friends in April. The house is bright, airy and fantastically well equipped, the owners have clearly thought of every little detail. There's plenty of space for 4 people, wit… More
