Crail, Fife, Scotland

( Above image illustrates Crail Harbour.)
This evening, I am posting information on the picturesque village of Crail which is located on the coast of the East Neuk of Fife,about 55 miles N.E. of Edinburgh.

Crail is a very old-and once very important commercial port- but activities are now basically confined to some fishing with tourism the main activity.

More information:
  • The name is derived from Caraile and means 'rock'.
  • Home to a commercial pottery and the world's 7th oldest golf club, dating from 1786.
  •  Located on route of the 117 mile long Fife Coastal path.
  • Attracts tourists with a wide range of interests including those focusing on crafts, photography and painting.
  • At the harbour can be found the Crail Lobster Hut which specialises in fresh crustaceans
  • There is a small, sandy beach which can be used in the warmer, summer months..
