Crail Museum and Heritage Centre, East Neuk

Crail is the archetypally charming East Neuk fishing village, its maze of rough cobbled streets leading steeply down to a tiny stone-built harbour surrounded by piles of lobster creels, and with fishermen's cottages tucked into every nook and cranny in the cliff.
 
Though often populated by artists at their easels and camera-toting tourists, it is still a working harbour, and if the boats have been out you can buy fresh lobster and crab cooked to order from a small wooden shack on the harbour edge. 
 
The Crail Museum and Heritage Centre provides insight into the past life of this ancient Royal Burgh, its Kirk, seafaring tradition, 220 year-old golf club and RAF Airfield history (HMS Jackdaw, Fleet Air Arm Station, HMS Bruce Boys Training School and Joint Services School for Linguists).
