Offering modern comfort from its 21 bedrooms and suites, award winning food 2 rosettes for the last 15 years along with the Visit Scotland Gold award for service. So if its golf, outdoor activities, great food or maybe some amazing live music, the Inn has it all.
Situated in the idyllic area of "Neuk" , the Scots word for nook or corner, it is generally accepted to comprise the fishing villages of the most northerly part of the Firth of Forth and the land and villages slightly inland therefrom. In effect, this means that part to the south of a line drawn parallel to the coast from just north of Earlsferry to just north of Crail. As such it would include Elie and Earlsferry Kingsbarns, Crail, Kilrenny, Anstruter, Colinsburgh, St Monans, Carnbee, Arncoach, Cellar Dyke.
Close by you can also travel to the famous Isle of May
The Isle of May is located in the north of the outer Firth of Forth approximately 8 km (5.0 mi) off the coast of mainland Scotland. It is 1.8 kilometres (1.1 miles) long and less than half a kilometre wide. The island is owned and managed by Scottish Nature Reserve
Most visitors to the island are daytrippers taking the ferry from nearby Anstruther although up to six visitors can stay at the bird observatory usually for a week at a time. The only way to get there is by ferry, the journey taking 45 minutes from the small ports of Anstruther, Caril, Dunbar and North Berwick.
The island is closed to visitors from the beginning of October to Easter to prevent disturbance to the large number of seal pups. The Scotish Sea bird centre has two live cameras on the island, which can be remotely controlled by visitors, to allow close viewing of the seabird cities, including comrants shags razorbills and terns The Scottish Seabird Centre also runs boat trips to the Isle of May.
There are now no permanent residents, but the island was the site of a St. Adrian's Priory during the Middle Ages.
A trip advisor review
Ideal location if travelling around St. Andrews and the East Coast with a bus stop just outside if you'd prefer not to take the car (check the timetables though)!
Very clean and comfortable rooms, great breakfast and the dinner menu was very appealing; unfortunately, we were on a short break and didn't get the chance to sample it.
The staff were all very helpful and friendly, which added to the enjoyment of our stay.
