Inspiring Short Break

Now that we're well settled here, we took the chance of having a short break across in the Kingdom of Fife, one of our favourite places in the east of Scotland. We've been many times before but are so much nearer now which allowed us to drive over the new bridge, the Queensferry Crossing, then all the way up the East Neuk.


Most of the fishing villages are still as picturesque and traditional, with their fishing boats, creels and fresh lobster and crab for sale at various small booths. This time, we found a new-to-us village where the empty long sandy beach and wild sea and cliffs was only enhanced by the cold windy day! Most exhilarating.

Before heading home on the Monday, we stopped at historic Culross, where much of the Outlander series was filmed. It is one of the most intact 16th/17th century villages in Scotland and I could picture the past with ease - even the streets are mostly still cobbled.

I'll let the photos do the talking on this post!

They are truly wonderful pictures, Rosemary. What breathtakingly beautiful places you found to visit, especially Culross. So glad you enjoyed your break in the lovely, fresh autumn air xxx

Thanks so much, Teresa! I think the UK is lovely in so many different ways in different places.

Thank you, Joanna! Between gallivanting and having granddaughter for two days, the writing needs to catch up now.
