Additionally, there is a beautiful historic parish church and popular cafès, art galleries, and pottery studios. The Category A Listed Golf Hotel complete with a restaurant and bar adds to the local amenities and the character of the village. Kingsbarns Distillery on the outskirts provides a lovely place to relax with a terrace and café. Primary school education is catered for and there is a high school in Anstruther. Further options for retail, dining, and leisure are available in the historic town of St Andrews, just under ten miles away. Renowned as the “home of golf” it is also home to the internationally recognised University of St Andrews. Crail is within easy reach of neighbouring scenic fishing villages including Anstruther, St Monans, and Pittenweem. Dundee to the north is a forty-minute drive and Edinburgh is approx. 90 minutes by car or an hour by train from Leuchars.

Crail stands as the most easterly village along the East Neuk of Fife and holds the distinction of being one of the earliest Royal Burghs of Scotland. Nestled along the picturesque Fife Coastal Path and famous for its harbour, it offers wonderful opportunities to explore this breathtaking part of the country. Surrounded by beautiful countryside and coastline there are a wide variety of outdoor attractions for all ages to enjoy. Experience adventure at East Neuk Outdoors where you can try paddle boarding, archery, mountain biking and more, or explore Lomond Hills Regional Park with 25 square miles of moorland, farmland, and lochs perfect for cycling, riding, and walking.

Other local clubs to discover include those at nearby Kingsbarns and the world-famous Old Course at St Andrews. Kellie Castle and Gardens, owned by The National Trust for Scotland, is also well worth a visit and is a fine example of Victorian style and medieval stonework.

State schooling is provided locally at the primary level with high school provision in Anstruther. Private options are available at St Leonards in St Andrews and at The High School of Dundee.
