The apartment looks directly over the quaint working harbour in the centre of St Monan's, which has a handful of local shops and cafes and plenty of activity for a spot of people-watching. Take a stroll along the coast path to St Monan's Windmill, around 1 mile away – and if you fancy having a look inside make sure you ask in the post office for the key before you go. For a longer walk, carry on to Anstruther, 3 miles from the house, which has a bigger selection of pubs and restaurants, including a very popular fish and chip shop. There's also a regular bus service from St Monan's that runs into the evenings which is useful for an evening out, or for the return trip after sampling too many local delights. Browse the interesting exhibits at the Scottish Fisheries Museum, or hop on a ferry to the Isle of May across the Firth of Forth to see the friendly seals and characterful puffin colonies. Walk along the coast path in the opposite direction from the apartment to Elie, 3 miles away, and visit Elie Ness lighthouse and Lady Janet Anstruther's Tower on the headland before enjoying a paddle in the pretty sandy bay. Elie is also home to one of Fife's oldest and prettiest links golf courses.

The property itself is very nice. Clean and all facilities. The area is beautiful but if you like nights out, there is no pub there, however handy for buses to Elie and Anstruther where there is plenty to do.

Great bus service at top of station road and runs late in the evening if fancy Anstruther for meal and drinks. Dreel Tavern recommended and on coastal walk if a walker. Unfortunately restaurant opposite apartment closes 5pm unless June, July or August so no village pub which would have been very welcome .

Great loaction! Lovely flat for 2 people. Great views! Smaler than expected, but fine for two (the door to the bedroom is right beside the sofa and the kitchen unit). Bathrom and bedroom are single glased and the living room is double glased. There is a washing machine at the top of the stairs next to the bathroom door. St. Monans is missing a pub,Read more but has 2 small shops, a cafe, 2 restaurants and a visiting fish and chips van (2 days a week). Hide

Well equipped, modern and comfortable cottage. Fabulous location stunning scenery with a window view to savour sunsets and sunrises. All the added extras included made for a very relaxed and enjoyable break heading into a New Year. Highly recommended.
