We’re just back from an 11-night stay at Sandcastle Cottage, and have enjoyed lots of things around the East Neuk of Fife and St Andrews. As seasoned holidaymakers in the area, there are of course some glaring omissions which we’ve visited before or didn’t do this time round, but we thought the selection might inspire you if you’re considering a break here.
As you’ll know if you regularly read our updates, we’re often to be found helping spread the news about the East Neuk of Fife on Twitter. We like to join the monthly Twitter chat, #ScotlandHour as it’s useful for finding out more about what’s going on around the country which might be of interest to visitors to Scotland.
There’s a wonderful project going on around the UK coastline – have you heard of it yet? A mysterious beach visitor who likes to be known only as “manonabeach” is touring our beaches, asking fellow beach visitors one simple question “What does the beach mean to you?”.
He’s just visited our very own Roome Bay beach at Crail for the second time and now has contrasting stories about Roome Bay in Winter and in summer.
If you were to be asked “What does the beach mean to you?”, what would you say? [Let us know in the comments below.]
For us, it’s a place of discovery and renewal. Blowing away the cobwebs, relaxing and finding peace. Either the start of a walk, or a journey of discovery – back in time through the stones we find; to make a little beach sculpture; to breathe in fresh air and see the horizon or to see what has washed up on the shoreline.
Here are links to some of the stories about Roome Bay Beach:
In summer… and in winter.
