Elie Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Kingdom of Fife...

Originally a fishing village/harbour on the southern side of East Neuk, Elie now attracts tourists and those wishing for an pleasant place to retire. At low tide it has miles of golden sands. Elie is popular with golfers, sailors and surfers.

The Parish Church on High Street dates from 1639. When its tower was added in 1729 there were no buildings to the rear of the church so the clock has only three faces.

A short way from Elie along the coastal path stand the first lighthouse in East Neuk. Small but effective! Excellent views over Elie.

A little further away stands the partially restored Lady's Tower. Built in the mid 18th century as a summerhouse, it also served as a changing room for Lady Jane Anstruther who was one of the early naturists. It is said that, when she went swimming naked in the bay, she sent a bell ringer around the town to warn residents to keep away.
