Visit Crail for Scenery and Architecture

Saturday, October 14, 2006

Crail is one the most picturesque of the string of villages which line the Fife coast. The architecture stands out, having strong Dutch influence derived from the village's prosperous trading past with the Low Countries where goods included fish and cloth.

Place to see and visit include:

Kellie Castle, located about 7 miles inland and renowened for Scottish Arts & Crafts influence.

The Jerdan Gallery. This sells the work of local artists plus jewellery, glass and woodwork.

Crail Pottery. Produces stoneware and painted earthenware.

Pittenweem. A nearby village which also has a focus on art

Ceres, inland of Crail where Griselda Hill has a pottery producing replicas of classic Wemyss Ware.
