The East Neuk village of St Monans is a small fishing village, steeped in history. The harbour is very picturesque and a relic of the past are the saltpans which in yesteryear were an active part of the local economy and are currently being resurrected by a local entrepreneur. St Monans has all the facilities you could hope for in a small village: there are 2 general stores, a Post Office, cafe and the East Pier Smokehouse restaurant and fish merchants.
There is a famous seafood restaurant in the village - “Craig Millar @16 West End" - the street entrance for the restaurant is opposite Shoreleave.
St Monans is centrally placed being 20 minutes from St Andrews, under 10 minutes from Anstruther which has an excellent 9-hole golf course not to mention a superb restaurant called “Rockies” at the club. Elie and Earlsferry and its beautiful golf course and the Elie Sports Club with tennis and bowls and a 9-hole golf course are also about 10 minutes away.
The village and the house has superb views across the Firth of the Forth to the Isle of May and the Bass Rock. Dundee and St Andrews offer a more comprehensive choice of shops and restaurants and are just a short drive away.
Pittenweem to the north of St Monans is host to one of Scotland's most famous art festivals in August with a stunning fireworks display to open the festival.
