Holiday In Fife: Day 4 and 5: Pillars of Hercules, Cupar and the East Neuk

Brock's walk on Tuesday 22 March, was around the forest trail next to The Pillars of Hercules Organic Farm Shop and Restaurant. Then we had a tasty lunch: Rob ate the 'crepe of the day' with brie and apple - it happened to be gluten free. I had GF chilli, which came with tortillas, salad and little pots of cheese and yoghurt. Rob had a slice of coffee cake, and I had lemon and poppy seed polenta cake. With two Americanos, the bill came to around £25.

We bought some vegetables, and vegetable seeds from the shop, the latter for sowing in our own garden, after the holiday.

Cupar was our next stop: a nice, small town with lots of independent shops and historically interesting buildings. The Scottish Deer Centre is nearby (with many types of deer, wolves, lynx, wild cats, birds of prey to see).

On Wednesday 23 March, we did a driving tour of the East Neuk villages, starting at Largo, then Elie, St Monans, Pittenweem, Anstruther, Cellardyke and so back to Crail. All have their own points of interest and we have holidayed in three of them now. I think Pittenweem, Anstruther and Crail are my favourites - all picturesque, with nice shops and cafes to visit. Here are some of our photos from previous visits to the area.

 I love this blue-shuttered house in Crail - imagine living there! It looks straight out over the sea.
