Fife’s quaint fishing ports of Elie, St Monan’s and Pittenweem has been the most popular single day outing over the summer. And for good reason: it makes for a very enjoyable day trip, not that far out from Edinburgh, combining a lovely coastal walk with a seafood lunch for shellfish fans (but there are other things besides fish on the menu).

  The coast has a lot of history from ruined castles, watchtowers, windmills and a cave used by a Celtic monk, all of which can be closely inspected, led on foot for 90 minutes or more by your own guide.

  The quirky welly-boot garden at St Monan’s always raises a smile.

  The alleys and courtyards of the tightly packed houses of the fishing villages provide endless discoveries.

  When you’re done with walking, even though others may continue along the coast, you can sample the pubs, cafes, or wander window shopping with an ice-cream. The chocolatier will probably draw you in for a purchase or two. You won’t be forgotten and will be collected along with the others in the minibus.

  Pittenweem truly comes alive during it’s week-long summer arts festival when many a private home becomes a public gallery for paintings, jewellery, pottery and other handicrafts.
