About the local area

The village dates back to the 1800s when it used to be called Inverie but was renamed when St Monan was buried in a shrine (now the imposing church which overlooks the village) in about 875. The remains of Newark Castle can still be seen when you approach St Monans from the west. To the east of the village you will find a recently restored windmill dating back to the 1700’s when water was pumped from the sea to the ’salt pans’.. The harbour has three piers, a rocky shoreline to explore and a little further along the coastal path you can access a sandy beach. St Monans has a selection of local shops, an award winning seafood restaurant and an excellent Chinese Takeaway. In neighbouring villages you will also find many wonderful harbours and great local facilities. Enjoy a coffee at one of the cafes on the marina, fish and chips from the famous Anstruther fish bar or perhaps dinner at The Cellar Restaurant - holder of 3AA rosettes. Whilst in Anstruther you could visit the Scottish Fisheries Museum, the local RNLI station or you could take a boat trip from the harbour to the Isle of May and visit the world renowned bird sanctuary and nature reserve. The bird life includes Puffins, Cormorants and Eider duck and if you are lucky you may spot dolphins or seals. Golfers will be spoilt for choice with many excellent courses throughout Fife, the nearest 18 hole course being Earlsferry 3 miles away and with St Andrews, the home of golf, only 12 miles away. At Elie (3 miles) there is a fantastic water sports centre, wonderful golden sandy beaches and the Chain Walk, a mini ’via ferrata’ along the cliffs. You could walk part of the Fife Coastal Path, which runs from North Queensferry in the south, 150km to the Tay Bridge in the north, with historic castles, quaint fishing villages and many beautiful beaches and coves to visit along the way. For the cyclist the Millennium Cycle Way allows you to explore 300 miles along quiet country roads, disused railways and forest tracks, an excellent way to admire the stunning coastline and the rolling countryside. With Edinburgh, Stirling and Perth all around an hour’s drive, Moorings is a fantastic location from which to explore the Kingdom of Fife and beyond or just to relax and enjoy this beautiful location.
