The East Neuk of Fife is made up of a series of fishing villages and towns built up around their harbours. St Monans is one such quaint village which houses many historical sites such as the remnants of the 18th century Salt Pans, the Windmill, and the ruins of the 17th Century Newark Castle not forgetting the 14th Century ‘Auld Kirk’.  8 East Shore is a cosy traditional fisherman’s cottage on the harbour in this beautiful village.


This lovely Fife property faces the sea and is a sandstone building spread over 3 floors. There is a large well equipped  kitchen/dining area, tastefully furnished double and single bedrooms and a comfortable sitting room on the 3rd floor at the top in typical East Neuk style.
