The historical fishing port of St Monans

The smallest of the East Neuk fishing ports, St Monans makes up for it with charm and beauty. Along with its harbour, fishermens cottages and easy access to the Fife coastal trail, it makes for a splendid day out exploring the fife. Exactly who St Monan was is a bit of a mystery, but fortunately the town named after this enigma is a lasting legacy for everyone to enjoy.

Things to do in St Monans

St Monans Church is one of the oldest in Scotland, dating back to the 14th century. Sat on the edge of the Firth of Forth, its gothic architecture and serene atmosphere make it a must-visit. There are also opportunities in the area to go out in fishing boats, or just for a trip. The scenic coastal walks are what bring many to this area, and by following the Fife coastal path, you can enjoy the views too.

An industrial heritage

There are three piers here, the earliest dating from 1596. They are the remains of what was once a busy fishing port, seeing thousands of boats come and go each year. Exploring these offers great views and a glimpse of life back in the day. Also offering a stunning vista is the trip up to St Monans Windmill, just outside the village. This is the only remains of what was once a thriving salt industry here. The village has a varied industrial past of exporting iron ore, soon giving way to fishing and shipbuilding.

Just returned from a fantastic relaxing break at lodge 1 at Elderburn Lodges.
The lodge really is a home from home and the setup of the lodge is great for 2 couples having the lovely spacious shared central areas but the bedrooms are spaced well apart.
The lodge was spotless and well equipped and some of the little extras within the lodge were excellent.
The location is ideal for visiting St Andrews and the lovely Fife coast.
The visitors book within the lodge was full of reviews from returning customers and we would highly recommend these lodges and look forward to our next visit.
