We are justly proud of Crail’s heritage and would be glad to tell you more about the history which surrounds us.​

We can also arrange to take Groups on Guided Walks at a time and date to suit the Group.

Please contact to make arrangements for a Group Walk.

Crail is the most easterly of the Royal Burghs in the East Neuk of Fife and also the oldest.  Mention is made of the Burgh in ancient documents dating back to the 12th Century with the first Royal Charter for which there is documentary evidence granted by Robert the Bruce and signed at Stirling Castle in 1310. 

Crail is now principally a fishing village specialising in crab and lobster as well as an attractive holiday resort, but in the 18th Century it was noted for its fishing of herring for salting and its produce of Crail Capons (Haddock dried in the sun or smoked in a chimney). During the 18th Century as many as 200 ships could be fishing from Crail Harbour.
