Notes for Agnes Sime KINNEAR
The ancient and charming little town of Crail is the most easterly of Fife's fishing ports and has always been a magnet to those who prefer the peace and tranquility it offers.
Although a very small town, Crail has an extremely impressive history, its royal charter being granted by Robert the Bruce in 1310. This charter gave the people of Crail the right to trade on the Sabbath, which may explain why 200 years later John Knox chose Crail parish church as the venue for his most violent of sermons!
Out of all Fife's East Neuk villages, the village of Crail has the most picturesque harbour. From Crail's wide main street, steep cobble-stoned wynds run down to it, this being the older part of the village. Painters and landscape photographers spend hours here. The small anchorage caters mainly for lobster and crab fishing boats and creel-markers are seen in the water all along the coast. The upper streets of the village are more spacious with the Tolbooth at its centre, behind which is the small Crail Museum and Heritage Centre giving an insight into the burgh's history.
