Sunshine on the East Neuk (Fife)

Sunshine on the East Neuk


Nestling on the eastern edge of Scotland’s lesser Kingdom

With fertile field and bustling ports within its wide dominion

This gentle strand along the coast – Fife’s very own East Neuk

Deserves a visit from us all – why don’t you take a look?


For there we will discover stretched along the shores

Gems that shine so brightly, treasures in its store

From bustling ancient harbours still active in their trade

And bumpy cobbled streets on which shoppers promenade


The whole thing held together by meandering Coastal Path

In summer months a gentle stroll, in winter, waves show their wrath!

As we gaze across the firth’s wide seas we scan the Isle of May

From Anstruther the ‘Princess’ will take us for a day


The villages along the coast fill our minds with romance

Elie, St Monans, and Pittenweem, enough to make us dance

And Anstruther and Cellardyke the jewels of fife’s crown

Each and all together speak of this land’s renown
