St Monans, FifeGuest Rating
Right on the shore in the picturesque little fishing village of St Monans in the East Neuk of Fife is East Shore, a traditional cottage that has been transformed into a charming seaside retreat.

The house is set out over three floors, as is typical for these old fishermen’s cottages, which are connected by steepish stairs (they were fit in those days).
On the ground floor is the spacious, modern and well-equipped kitchen with a dining area and the snug sitting room on the first floor has a flame effect gas fire that keeps it nice and toasty.
The double bedroom has been laid out on the top floor and from all of the cottage’s front windows there are 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 means that this is certainly not the case at East Shore. Both the kitchen and sitting room, that face 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 that adds to 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.
