St Monans, Fife, Scotland
Scottish Tourist Board 4 stars. 'Periwinkle' is a traditional comfortable Scottish house. Built for a fisherman's family it has many character features, including open fire for guests use (in addition to the gas central heating)
The sunny west facing walled garden has garden furniture and barbeque. The garden gate opens onto the village green, with views beyond towards Kellie Law.
Quietly situated in the sea side village of St Monans and all the amenities this friendly village has to offer. Both the house and location provide an excellent base for a holiday.

Stayed for 4 nights as a short family break- Periwinkle has everything you would want or need for a holiday. The place was spotless when we arrived. The property makes a great base for exploring the East Neuk- pity the weather was not as good...More

About the neighbourhood
St.Monans is one the most typical of the East Neuk fishing villages, the heart of which is a conservation area; many houses have been restored by the National Trust for Scotland. Amongst the huddle of traditional cottages by the harbour wall is the St Monans Heritage Collection (museum.)
