Saint Monans, Fife

Ruins of Newark Castle, Fife

Ruins of Newark Castle, Fife

 

This is a long-established fishing port in Fife, Scotland.

The attraction on any tours of Scotland is the church.

 

The church has existed since 1362, the reign of King David the second, of Scotland.

 

The church was restored in the 14th Century, and again around 1828.

But much of the original architecture remains.

 

The cemetery houses the graves of fishermen over many centuries and is worth looking at.

Some incredible gravestones still exist.

 

The town has a double harbour and the traditional houses are closest.

As you progress up the steps of the town the buildings get newer.

 

Also, worth seeing are the ruins of Newark Castle, which are nearby.

 

At Ireland and Scotland Luxury Tours we enjoy the “hidden gems”, as do our clients.

Saint Monans is certainly one of those places.
