The pretty pastel painted, red roofed houses that line the harbour area in Pittenweem curl around the shoreline. The ancient streets and alleyways are clustered with houses with a distinctive East Neuk style and charm which were once frequented by smugglers and missionaries.

Our Pittenweem cottages offer you the chance to stay in a historic harbour town where relics of the town’s fascinating history are all around.  Between pubs and shops you will find St Fillan’s Cave, a Pictish monastery, an old tidal sea pool where nearby you will see fish hauled onto the harbour daily.
