Tour The East Neuk ( Corner ) Of Fife

The Craw's Nest Hotel, Anstruther. Find the best deal, compare prices and read what other travelers have to say at TripAdvisor. Our family run hotel is set in two acres of immaculately kept grounds and nestles in one of the beautiful Royal Burghs in the East Neuk of Fife. The hotel, a former manse, provides our guests with the ideal base to explore the rugged beauty of the Fife coastline, experience a different pace of life and enjoy the tranquility of Scotland's most historic unspoiled area.

I was raised in the fishing villages of Cellardyke and Anstruther in the beautiful and historic East Neuk. The East Neuk is string of beautiful fishing villages which pepper the shoreline of the East Neuk ( the eastern " corner " ) of Fife, stretching from Earlsferry to the Fife Ness. Much of Scotland's medieval trade with Europe passed through these ports, a connection reflected in the Flemish-inspired crow-stepped gables of many of the cottages. Although the herring industry has declined and the area is now a peaceful holiday center, the sea still dominates village life. Tales of the East Neuk.


The East Neuk is an excellent " base " location, where you can unpack, settle in for a few days, and have a temporary Scottish home. Then you can take day trips to nearby places such as St Andrews, Perth, Dunfermline, Edinburgh, Dundee and so on.

In any of the East Neuk villages, even over just a few days, you will get to know the people in your hotel and in the local shops and pubs. When you become acquainted with a few of the ' locals, ' and are greeted by them when you meet in the street or hotel, it will add a strong note of Scottish cheer to end each days activities.
