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.
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.
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.
