Crail Harbour

Picture of Harbour

Definitely the most picturesque harbour in the East Neuk, it is best viewed from the West Braes, as you come in to Crail from Anstruther. Surrounding the harbour are houses dating back to the 17th Century, with white walls and red pan tiled roofs. One of these used to be the customs house and on the side has a plaque bearing the town arms. The harbour has even been recreated in a detailed scaled model in Lego Land.

In the harbour are a few small boats that go partan (edible crabs) and lobster fishing, which are sold at the harbour and at the various fish merchants and sheds throughout the East Neuk villages.
