East Neuk of Fife

The East Neuk or eastern 'corner' of Fife is the name generally given to that part of the Fife coast lying between St Andrews and Lundin Links. Claiming some of the most fertile farmland in Fife it includes attractive picture-postcard fishing villages and former ports such as Crail, Anstruther, Pittenweem, St Monans, Elie and Earlsferry, and Upper and Lower Largo. In mediaeval times much of Scotland's sea trade with France, the Low Countries and Scandinavia was conducted through the ports of the East Neuk and in later years many of these coastal villages were home to large fishing fleets.
