East Shore Cottage
St Monans, Fife
Right on the shore in the picturesque little Fife fishing village of St Monans and right next door to Sea Breeze, which has for a number of years been one of our most popular cottages, is East Shore, which is more or less its mirror image and occupies the same sought-after situation.

East Shore is snug and cosy, with new double glazing and gas central heating. Typically for these old fishermen's cottages, it is on three levels (they were fit in those days), connected by steepish stairs.
On the ground floor is the spacious, modern and well-equipped kitchen-diner. The first floor has a snug sitting room with flame effect gas fire and an elegant bathroom. On the top floor is the double bedroom. From all the front windows, of course, there are the wonderful and uninterrupted sea views - you may even be lucky enough to see seals and dolphins swimming past the door!
While traditionally these old cottages with their thick walls and small windows could be rather dark, the careful choice of décor and new windows means that this is certainly not the case at East Shore. Both the kitchen and sitting room, facing south, are bright and sunny while the upstairs bedroom has both a Velux and a dear little window on the gable end at the side. It is all part of the charm!
Clustered round its little harbour, St Monans is one of the quietest and prettiest of the villages of the East Neuk. It has a famous seafood restaurant, shops and pubs within a few minutes walk of the cottage.
There are lovely coastal walks and more good golf courses in the surrounding area than perhaps anywhere else in Scotland, including, of course, St Andrews itself which is only 13 miles away.
In addition to its legendary golf courses, St Andrews is also steeped in history and has a vast expanse of glorious sandy beach, where both dogs and children will think they have landed in heaven! There is cycle hire in Elie, where you can also take boat trips to view the seabird colonies on the Isle of May in the Firth.
There is lots to see and do round about and further afield, Edinburgh, Perth, the Highlands and Loch Lomond can all be accessed with ease for a day trip.
