East Neuk Road Trip

Exploring the fishing villages of Fife with the Photography Society.

We had another day trip for our members last weekend, and this time we set off to see a bit of Scottish east coast, just south of Dundee.

The morning was marked by classic early-spring weather, juggling rain and sunshine at the same time. Thankfully, the rain portion went away before we got into our first stop, the picturesque town of Crail.

What you can’t see in the photo is the strong wind we were exposed. But it was interesting to see the variety of colors all over the place. The same situation was a bit down the road, in Pittenweem:

Moving down to St Monans, we checked out the Auld Kirk, which is one of the oldest active churches in Scotland..

..and walked a bit of the coastal path to the nearby placed ruins of Newark Castle…

…and then strolled through St Monans itself.

Next, we headed to a small peninsula by the Ruby Bay, which is topped with a small, but charming lighthouse.

There’s also a tower from the 18th century, which is pretty, and served us as a shelter from the wind.

Some relaxing moments later, we drove to the last town on the list, Anstruther, which is famous for its fish bar. As it was past lunchtime already and all of us were hungry, this was rather a convenient point of interest.

The dish was indeed tasty, and the town didn’t disappoint either.


If you enjoy photography, make sure to visit the exhibition of our members, which is happening this week in DUSA’s level 4.

All displayed prints are available for purchase, so if you are looking for a neat decoration of your room or office, there’s another reason for you to stop by. All proceeds will go to charity; so you will contribute to a good cause, too.
