As with many of the costal towns/villages in the East Neuk of Fife, the harbour at Crail is beautiful. So scenic. The weather was great when we visited which made the experience even more enjoyable.

Worth visiting at different times of the day to see the effect of the sun moving round - we were very lucky with the weather.

Title pretty much says it all. Colorful fishing boats make for great photography. Not sure if you can get fresh fish right off the boat.

We came on a warm June morning, it was idyllic. The sea was flat calm, under a pristine blue sky. All very quiet, very few people about, and even less traffic. It is a great shame that picturesque villages like this are blighted by so...More

Such a lovely spot to sit and take in the view and try out the local shops. Benched tables around the harbour

We managed to visit Crail in the sunshine which is incredible! Nice place for a little wander and beach is great for a wee paddle. Generally really quiet.

Filled with dinky fishing boats and bright colours made even more beautiful with the sun shining. We spent a while watching and savouring the view. Very pretty indeed.

Visited the harbour with husband. Pretty little harbour and it was tranquil and very pretty in the sunshine. Situated just off the coastal path, so walkers can enjoy it.

A very quiet harbour. Nice for a gentle stroll. The views and beach are lovely. On the Fife coastal path.

As far as I know yes. But was told they are unpredictable and not always helpful in being caught! Have a great time!
