Scotland is no stranger to good food. Edinburgh has its elegant, fine-dining establishments, Glasgow has its hip, up-and-coming eateries. But if you look a bit closer, you’ll uncover culinary hotspots hiding in Scotland’s many pockets and corners.
Last week, I had the unique chance to discover one of them.
The East Neuk (“Neuk” being the Scots word for “nook”) is a sunny corner around an hour from Edinburgh, running around the east peninsula of Fife. Despite having grown up in Scotland’s capital, I’ve never ventured to this part of the country – so when the opportunity came for a taster with Kingsbarns Distillery, I was well and truly tempted.
For my fellow foodies, here’s how to spend a delicious weekend in the scenic East Neuk of Fife.
