Fife Off The Beaten Path

  • Beautiful hamlet in the middle of...

    Collessie in Fife is an amazing little hamlet just off the A91 between Cupar and Auchtermuchty. The hamlet consists of many 18th and 19th century houses, several of them thatched. There is a church that dates from the middle of the 19th century although there are stones in the churchyard that are much older. Collessie was at one time a weaving...

  • Upper Largo - lovely village with...

    If you are travelling east along the A915 towards the East Neuk of Fife, you will probably either continue on that road to St Andrews or take the A917 to Elie and the various fishing villages of the East Neuk. But before you do, turn into the lane opposite the Upper Largo Hotel and explore the village of Upper Largo. Although it is only a few steps...

  • Crombie Point

    We were looking for somewhere to spend the night and after having a look round Culross, headed for Crombie Point, which showed a small parking area on Google earth.This is a wild beach and nature reserve between Culross and Charlestown, on the north coast of the Firth of Forth. The approach road is rather narrow and we did begin to wonder about...

  • Ceres - lovely inland village

    Ceres is a gem of a country village near Cupar, and just 6 miles from the sea . There is a pub / restaurant, a "corner shop", an antique shop, a pottery with a visitor centre where you can watch them make and paint the pottery, the excellent Fife Folk Museum (which has a gift and coffee shop), and of course, a church. The centre of the village is...

  • Lower Largo - home of "Robinson Crusoe"

    The most westerly village in the East Neuk of Fife is Lower Largo along with its neighbouring villages, Lundin Links and Upper Largo. Lower Largo is one of those gems that is easy to miss as it lies off the main road. It is, however, one of the most picturesque villages in this area. The harbour is a very unusual one with a railway viaduct towering...

  • Pittenweem, lovely village and an Arts...

    As all of Fife is off the beaten path, then so is Pittenweem. Early in August, though, this changes as it hosts the Pittenweem Arts Festival (August 7th to 15th in 2010). Last year there were some 90 featured artists mainly painters, including invited artists from around the world. What I like most is the variety of art and artists, from art club...

  • Culross - amazing little step back in...

    Possibly the best preserved Fife village with a complete early 17th century market square, a 16th century "palace" with a traditional vegetable garden, dozens of tiny cottages crowded into narrow cobbled streets, and an excellent tearoom (see restaurants). Situated between the Forth and Kincardine Bridges, it is easy to get to from Edinburgh...

  • Crail - another beautiful harbour

    Crail was the first East Neuk villages we discovered in 1972. I was impressed by the beautiful harbour, the small cottages with crow stepped gables, and the masses of lupins growing up the steep hillsides. Not as busy as Pittenweem or Anstruther, this quiet village with its cosy harbour is only 10 miles from St Andrews. On the logic of the saying,...

  • Scots keep this area a secret

    The Kingdom of Fife is not really a secret. People from Central Scotland have been coming here to boarding houses, hotels, and caravan parks for years. English and foreign visitors often miss this area and it is one of the most beautiful parts of Britain. A coastline that can be very rugged with rocky cliffs, but also with lovely beaches, many...
