Holiday cottages in Crail for a break in the East Neuk of Fife
Crail originally grew as a fishing village on the Scottish east coast, and in the old streets by the harbour you'll find traditional stone fisherman's cottages for a self catering holiday in Crail, as well as more modern accommodation on the edges of the village.
Food for all tastes and budgets
Fife's strong fishing heritage continues to this day, and there are numerous restaurants in the area selling some of the freshest local produce around. If you are looking for fine dining perfection, book a table at the Peat Inn near Cupar, a Michelin-starred inn with a reputation for consistent excellence. Anstruther's The Cellar also has a Michelin star, and has regularly changing menus depending on the season.
There are also many inns, pubs, bistros and brasseries where more casual dining is available. What could be better than home-cooked, hearty food eaten in a cosy local pub? Don't miss the opportunity to grab an award winning fish and chips takeaway from the Anstruther Fish Bar by the harbour either.
Miles of sandy beaches for exploring and fossil hunting
One of the main draws for visitors to this part of Fife are the beaches – miles of golden sands stretching along the North Sea coast. One of the nicest is at Kingsbarns just north of your Crail accommodation. Here you can explore the dunes, rocky outcrops, plenty of rockpools as well as acres of sand. This beach is also popular with fossil hunters as fossilised remains of 335 million year old plants are seen in the rocks at low tide.
Crail's own Roome Bay is the perfect mix of sand above the high water mark for playing and making sandcastles, and rocks and pools provide the perfect habitat for a wide range of seabirds. The small beach of Billow Ness in Anstruther is also worth a visit, the main benefit being that it's within easy walking distance of town.
The Home of golf and Scotland's oldest university
Just 20 minutes along the coast from Crail is St Andrews, one of the most visited towns in Scotland. Even if you're not a golf fan, you won't fail to recognise the Royal and Ancient Golf Club house adjacent to the 18th green of the famous Old Course. If you are a golfer, bring your clubs as the town has seven different links courses to challenge and test your skills on.
St Andrews has been a University town since 1413, and if you visit in term time, you'll see students in their traditional scarlet robes. There is an interesting museum exploring the history of the town and the University, with interactive exhibits for younger visitors. Also worth a visit is the ruined St Andrews castle and the nearby cathedral, both of which date back to the 12th century.
