Tour Scotland St Monans

St Monans is a town in the East Neuk of Fife named after the legendary saint Monan. Situated close to Anstruther, and Pittenweem, this small picturesque fishing community rests on a hill overlooking the Firth of Forth Estuary, with views over to North Berwick, the Bass Rock and the Isle of May. St Monans contains many historical buildings, most notably the now defunct Windmill that once powered a salt-panning industry, and a 14th century church that sits on the jagged cliffs above the water on the western side. St Monans once had a thriving fishing fleet, now long gone. Pittenweem Parish History.
