West Shore sits 20 metres from the Harbour in the fishing village of St Monans in Fife. It is an old traditional fishermans cottage which dates from about 1600 and is accessed by a narrow pedestrian wynd. There is plenty of parking space on the harbourside.

It has been fully modernised whilst retaining its traditional character as in the attic sitting room with its beamed ceiling which is where the fishermen used to dry their nets.

The cottage is very well equipped and has a large secluded garden with patio area.

You enter on the middle level which has a kitchen and a separate dining room which has an open fire for the colder nights and down a few steps there are 2 bedrooms one with a 3/4 bed and one with a double bed there is also a shower room with WC and wash hand basin. The upper level consists of the sitting room which has free view TV and DVD player. The lower floor has the master bedroom and a very spacious bathroom with a roll top bath.

6 nights would be charged at the weekly rate.

St Monans is one of the quaintest fishing villages in the East Neuk, it is a perfect getaway with the Fife Coastal Path right on the doorstep, perfect for relaxing and close enough to busier local towns such as St Andrews and of course there is Pittenweem just approx 2 km along the coast which hosts the renowned Pittenweem Art Festival.
