Crail is an ancient Royal Burgh. Its origins pre-date history.
Points of interest include the church, Marketgate (which in medieval times was home to one of Europe's largest markets) the Town Hall whose architecture reflects trade with Holland and of course the picturesque fishing harbour.
What to do in and around Crail ?
If you are a golfer you will be in paradise.
Crail golfing society (founded in 1786) has two wonderful courses.
Kingsbarns (2 miles from Crail) although constructed as recently as 2000 is already prominent on the golfing map of the world.
Fairmont St Andrews Hotel with two fine courses is 8 miles along the 10 mile road from Crail House to St. Andrews where it
all began. In total there are seven courses operated by the St Andrews Links including the Castle Course with its splendid views of St Andrews.
What to do if not a golfer?
There are walks galore by the sea
and inland too.
There are places of interest to visit all around including the National Trust's 14th century Kellie Castle, Falkland Palace and Hill of Tarvit properties and of more recent date Scotland's Secret Bunker from which the Government of Scotland would have been conducted had a nuclear conflict occurred.
There are two local potteries which are well worth a visit as is the Scottish Fisheries Museum at nearby Anstruther.
For a special treat, take a boat trip to the May Island home to a colony of colourful puffins and many other sea birds.
