Rockpool Cottage is situated in the delightful small East Neuk of Fife fishing vilage of Lower Largo overlooking Largo Bay. The harbour and pier, local store, Railway Inn and Crusoe Hotel are literally within a few yards of the property whilst at the end of the courtyard path outside the front door of the cottage, a set of stone stairs leads right down onto the beach. The views from the courtyard (with patio tables/chairs) across the bay and over to Edinburgh and the coast down to Berwick, are stunning. The courtyard wall is a tide barrier and at high tide the sea comes right up to the wall. The sound of the waves at night will send even the most stressed out insomniac straight to sleep!
Lower Largo, in keeping with all the fishing villages in the East Neuk of Fife is a small friendly community grouped around a small harbour and pier. Here, access to Main Street and the cottage is across the harbour bridge at the mouth of the River Kiel. The village is famous for it's association with Alexander Selkirk (Robinson Crusoe)
