Let's embark on a journey through this Scottish gem, highlighting all there is to see, do, and taste.

Quaint Fishing Villages - The 'wee' fishing villages are an epitome of East Neuk's charm and history.

Anstruther, perhaps the biggest of the bunch, still does its best with a busy harbor and Anstruther Fish Bar, deemed the best in Britain for its fish and chips. Don't miss the Scottish Fisheries Museum here, which delves into the area's maritime heritage.

Next is Crail, with a lovely little harbor. The narrow, cobbled streets and historic buildings of the village make an obvious ideal of the way Scotland once was. For art lovers, there are several galleries in Crail with works by local artists. The subject matter runs the gamut, taking in most of Scotland's landscapes and seas.

Pittenweem—yet another little gem in this necklace—will surely be well known to all those living bohemian lives. Here, there is a vibrant arts festival every August, and it attracts artists and art lovers from throughout the world. From a very interesting side, it presents the busy fishing port with fish landed by the local fleet.

Last but not least, St Monans is the smallest one, but again probably the most picturesque. The Auld Kirk, a church impressively located right by the shoreline, which offers views over the sea, can be found in the village.

Coastal Views and WalksAnd there are spectacular walks for those who take to the Fife Coastal Path over the craggy coastline of the East Neuk and across the Firth of Forth. Stretching more than 117 miles, it's one of Scotland's Great Trails, but you don't have to walk the whole thing to enjoy the views in this part of East Neuk.Short walking distances from village to village will disclose hidden bbeys, secret beaches, and formidable cliffs, to show that this is really paradise for all nature lovers and seekers of outdoor fun.

Seafood Delicacies East Neuk's heaven is the love of seafood. Here, from one end to the other of the villages, are cafes and restaurants whose produce is almost exclusively the freshest fish and shellfish, all caught in the area. Lobster, crab, mackerel, haddock—your selection should reach your plate within minutes from out of the sea.And for a really local experience, pop down to the seafood stalls and markets where you can taste the catch of the day or buy it to take away.Things to Do There are, of course, quite a number of local activities to East Neuk besides the meandering of seafood and the enjoying of glorious views.

Many courses in golf facilities offer the most beautiful sea views.It is also a favorite of wildlife watchers, as one of the stars in the area is the Isle of May National Nature Reserve, easily reachable with only a short boat trip from Anstruther. In order to socialise and get involved in this rich culture, there exists a number of cultural events, including festivals and fairs gathering traditional, musical, artistic performances from this territory.

The best of these is the East Neuk Festival, which showcases classical music in some of the most unlikely venues one is ever likely to see.
