Holiday in Fife: Day Four

Another sunny day, so it was off to Cambo Gardens, Kingsbarns, near St Andrews.




There is a huge Victorian walled garden with a vegetable plot, herbaceous borders, fruit trees etc.


One reason we picked this garden to visit was the fact that they allow dogs on a lead, so Brock was able to accompany us. We took the woodland walk down to the beach and found another golf course running along the coast, and part of the Fife Coastal Path.


There is a small covered courtyard where you can enjoy tea, coffee and cakes. The waitress managed to produce a gluten free chocolate chip muffin for me, so I was quite happy with that. There is also a gift shop, and plant sales area. Entrance to the gardens costs £5 per adult.

 

The town of Cupar was our next stop. We had lunch in a small cafe, where we had courgette and carrot soup and a sandwich for Rob with Mozzarella and sun dried tomatoes/gluten free roll for me with egg mayo. The food was very good and reasonably priced and the proprietrix was very helpful. I think it was called Cafe Moka.

We had a walk through the small park and continued along the river bank where there were people fishing and walking dogs.


Back in Anstruther that evening, we decided to have chips for dinner. There is an award winning chip shop that we had intended to eat at, but the queues were too long, so we went to The Waterfront Restaurant up the street and sat outside overlooking the harbour, eating some of the best chips I have had in a very long time. Brock was with us and enjoyed the attention he received from a boy who seemed quite smitten with him. I had some ice cream from the Anstruther Fish Bar Ice Cream Parlour, which was delicious: cherry cola and rum and raisin flavours.
