Outside: Outstandingly relaxing and enclosed garden (belonging to Harbour House) close to the water's edge and only 50 metres from the ancient harbour. A little piece about the surrouding area: Crail is the oldest and the most photographed of the East Neuk villages. Indeed there's no doubt that Crail is one of the most picturesque and charming fishing villages you’ll ever visit. Having been confirmed as a Royal Burgh by Robert the Bruce in 1310 and more recently been described as a key part of Scotland’s East Coast Riviera, there are a wealth of places to see and things to do in the immediate vicinity. Located only 10 mins drive from St Andrews and an hour from Edinburgh, Crail makes a great base for a holiday in Fife and despite its proximity to the central belt of Scotland it couldn't feel further away from life's stresses and strains.
