Much of the old village of St. Monans is a conservation area with many of the old houses restored by the National Trust for Scotland.  Surrounding the harbour, the colour washed fishermen’s cottages huddled together under their red pantiled roofs, they make a charming picture.



This is an ideal holiday location. The East Neuk has safe sandy beaches, rock pools and delightful fishing villages.

In 2008 St. Monans won first place in the Best Kept Town and Village Awards for  the East Fife area.




There are a number of shops and restaurants in the village including, a hotel/pub/restaurant, an award winning cafe and top class seafood restaurant overlooking the harbour.  Fresh fish can be bought from a number of sheds in the village.

Periwinkle is 100 metres from the Fife Coastal Path. There a particularly lovely coastal walk which takes you past the restored windmill to Pittenweem.  In the other direction towards Elie, the path leads you along the shore front past the old harbour to the old Kirk which stands on the rocks.  The path continues past the rocks, small beach, and doocot to the impressive ruins of Newark Castle and Ardross sands..  Inland there is picturesque countryside with colourful farmland and rolling hills.
