The East Neuk of Fife is well known for it's picturesque fishing villages, sandy beaches and numerous golf courses. Fife is a beautiful, historic county of rich arable farmland and rolling hills. The Scottish National trust opens three properties, Kellie castle (4 miles), Hill of Tarvit (18 miles) and Falkland Palace 22 miles). The ancient university town of St Andrews (13 miles), has a ruined castle and abbey, golf courses, interesting shops and restaurants, museums, gardens, beaches and sea life centre. Anstruther home of the Fisheries Museum, and boat trips from the harbour to the May Island a 'must see' for the puffins. Pittenweem still has a fishing fleet and renowned Art festival, Elie sandy beaches.

There is much to see and do in this area, watersports, walking, wildlife, whatever your interest there is plenty to fill your holiday.


St Monans

St.Monans is one the most typical of the East Neuk fishing villages, the heart of which is a conservation area; many houses have been restored by the National Trust for Scotland. Amongst the huddle of traditional cottages by the harbour wall is the St Monans Heritage Collection (museum.)

The now quiet harbour, built for a busy fishing fleet, is now mainly used by leisure boats. Boat building has always been important to the life of the village, and you may see work going on at the quayside. The ancient Auld Kirk sits on the rocky shoreline to the west. Further along there is a lovely walk by the coastal path to the ruins of Newark Castle and miles of golden sands.To the east is St Monans Windmill, (open July and August.) There are a several shops, an hotel with bar and restaurant, a fine dining seafood restaurant overlooking the sea and a cafe. One or two fish sheds and a smokehouse remain, where you can buy fresh fish..

The Fife coastal path passes along the front of St Monans.

There is plenty to do and see in the area whatever your interest wildlife, sport, leisure or culture.

"A Jewel in the East Neuk Crown"

This is our 4th stay at Periwinkle Cottage in St Monans and we would recommed it to everyone to book and enjoy a truely natural holiday in such a beautiful part of the world as Fife. The cottage is extremely well kept and always spotless on our arrival which is further enhanced by homemade goodies to welcome you. A generous central heating system keeps us warm and provides toasty hot baths with an open fire in the living room. It has a modern well-equiped kitchen and 3 lovely bedrooms. A walled garden at the back where the fishing nets were stored in days gone by now keeps our dog safe and opens on to St Monans Common for late night walks. The cottage is central for those who want to explore Fife and all the lovely things it has to offer but it is also within walking distance to some shorter coastal walks to Elie or Pittenweem.
The owner of Periwinkle is extremely friendly and efficient at replying to our email requests and accommodating with our dates.We would thoroughly recommend Periwinkle for a relaxing break and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
