East Neuk of Fife
This area of the Kingdom of Fife is renowned as a popular attraction to visitors from both the UK and abroad, and the Old Manor Hotel, situated at the gateway to the East Neuk, is ideally placed to use as a base for exploring the area.
Stretching from the village of Lundin Links eastwards along the coast to Crail and then northwards towards St Andrews, this special corner of the country offers stimulating coastal walks, picturesque harbour towns and villages, historic monuments, leisure activities, boat trips and beautiful beaches. Also, for golfers of all abilities, this stretch of coast is renowned for its excellent quality courses.
