The Fife region
Fife is known as the Kingdom because for over 600 years Dunfermline in the west was the capital of Scotland. In central Fife, Loch Leven was where Mary, Queen of Scots was imprisoned by Queen Elizabeth 1. This is a part of Scotland that is steeped in history with castles and kings, saints and caves, witches and windmills. To the north of the Kingdom, St Andrews was where golf was invented and it's university was where Prince William and Princess Kate first met.
The East Neuk which is Scottish for corner has some of the most picturesque villages in Scotland and the coastline boasts some of the best beaches. The Fife Coastal Path extends from the Forth Bridge along the peninsular and round the East Neuk to St Andrews and beyond. Because of it's location there are no midgies as in other parts of Scotland which makes the Neuk and ideal place to enjoy a great holiday outdoors.
St Monans is one of a handful of tiny fishing villages that nestle on the Firth of Forth looking south towards the Bass Rock and and Isle of May. With quaint harbour houses and characteristic red pantiles the dutch-influenced architecture dates back over 400 years. Using the Fife Coastal Path you can walk along this spectacular coastline to the remains of Newark Castle, the Kirk on the Sea, the windmill, and Salt Pans.
For over 250 years St Monans was the village that built the fishing boats for the local fleet. In the last 5 years the boat-building has ended and a wonderful reinvention is taking place.
Dine at Craig Millar's gourmet seafood restaurant on the harbour or relax at the outstanding Mayview Hotel which now offers a restaurant, lounge bar, function suite, sports bar and courtyard outdoor area. Visit the East Pier Smokery to buy locally smoked shellfish or go oriental and buy a takeaway from the Wok & Spice or if you prefer traditional fish & chips Murray's Mobile brings food to you on Saturday evenings. There is also a Spar (with a good selection of household essentials & fresh food, wines, spirits, newspapers and magazines) a mini-mart with lottery stand, a hairdressers, a beauty salon, a post office, toy shop, and a community cafe plus there is a play park, and a sports field in the centre of the village to amuse the children and a public library if you want to borrow books, cd's or use the internet.
Look out for the Sea Queen Festival annually in June and also the St Monans Arts Festival in September, and enjoy the fireworks on the harbour at Hogmanay (New Year).

So glad that you all enjoyed the splendid autumn weather, the local amenities and fun places to visit during the day. It's nice to know that you made the most of the log burner and that it made your nights in Fifies House lovely and cosy.

I was looking for a property that could accommodate our extended family for a short and relaxing stay. All the reviews for this property suggested a pretty special house and we were not disappointed. … More
Thank you so much for your generous comments. I was so lucky to find Fifies House and tried to update it to accommodate families looking for a relaxing traditional seaside break which still felt like a home from home. It's a pity that you didn't get the chance to use the log burner but I guess you'll have to pop back later in the season? Kindest regards Maddie
