Cobbled streets and whitewashed cottages with faded red tiled roofs, the divine aroma coming out of traditional smokehouses-it all transports you back to a simpler, more peaceful time. There are long beaches, sandy coves and rock pools to explore, as well as many castles, museums and historic buildings.
The Fife Coastal Path section between Pittenweem and Elie has been hailed as one of Britain’s top coastal walks. Golf, wildlife watching and water sports such as swimming, windsurfing and sailing are all on offer. A plethora of art, music and food festivals on the calendar draw visitors from all over the world. The village shops are a treasure trove of art, local crafts and fashion. A favourite pastime, though, is simply enjoying the stunning coastal views and watching the fishing boats in the harbours as they bring in the day’s catch- the perfect antidote to workaday stresses and worries.
Speaking of the day’s catch, seafood lovers will find heaven in East Neuk of Fife. Cosy bistros, friendly cafés and romantic restaurants proffer the local bounty pier-to-plate style, from succulent crab and lobster to some of the best fish and chips in Britain.
East Neuk of Fife is a brilliant seaside destination for the whole family.
