Situated on the Fife coast is the active port town of Pittenweem, surrounded by the East Neuk of Fife. The harbour is the centre of the village, where many of the vibrant seafront properties have been renovated and maintained by the National Trust of Scotland due to their historic significance.
Take the coast road south of St Andrews and you’ll find a host of quaint little fishing villages the most notable being Crail, Cellardyke, Anstruther and Pittenweem all of which are within walking distance of each other. Visit the harbour at Pittenweem early in the morning and enjoy the spectacle of the fish being landed, sorted and sold in the market in the sheds. Enjoy the charm of the traditional Fife houses many of which have been restored by the National Trust for Scotland. Visit Kellie Castle and gardens or St Fillan’s Cave to take in the history of this part of the country. You could also take an East Neuk of Fife private tour from St Andrews or Dundee which would include a visit to Pittenweem. There are a number of restaurants and pubs in the village some of which have been there for generations.
