Nestled in the picturesque East Neuk of Fife, the charming fishing village of Pittenweem is steeped in local history and has a working harbour that dates back to 1600. The village itself is home to everyday amenities including grocery shops, galleries and craft shops, a bakery, Post Office, doctors surgery, a primary school, hairdressers, cafes, a restaurant, 2 pubs and a fish and chip shop. Pittenweem is an extremely popular tourist destination, and it's easy to see why; the village's location, hugged by rugged coastline and open countryside, gives ready access to scenic walking (including the Fife Coastal Path), running and cycling routes, a walled sea pool, and crazy golf. In addition, the village hosts the Annual Pittenweem Arts Festival exhibiting the works of local and visiting artists, many of whom are inspired by Pittenweem's glorious coastal scenery and historic architecture. The pretty historic harbour villages of Crail and St Monans are nearby, whilst the beautiful Elie beach (with extensive watersport amenities), as well as Elie tennis and golf clubs, are just a short drive away. The nearby coastal town of Anstruther is home to a large Supermarket, an award- winning fish & chip shop, and a harbour which offers idyllic summer boat trips to the Isle of May. The popular University, golf and tourist town of St Andrews is just 20 minutes' drive from Pittenweem, and the award-winning Kingsbarns Golf Links is just seven miles away and newly opened Dumbarnie Links is close by as well. Fast road links also make for an easy car journey, of just over an hour into Edinburgh.
