Area covered: The Society is concerned with the area comprising
the former burghs and parishes of Kilrenny, Anstruther Easter,
Anstruther Wester, Pittenweem, St Monans, Elie and Earlsferry,
Kilconquhar and Colinsburgh, Largo and Lundin Links and the
landward area as far as New Gilston, Largoward, Arncroach and
The Society aims to stimulate pride in the local architecture
and historic character of the East Neuk, and to act, through the
members, as a custodian of the unique character and rich
architectural heritage of the East Neuk.
We aim also to safeguard and improve the amenities of the area and
to provide information and advice to members.
The Society is an active pressure group. It has a good
relationship with Fife Council who respect the views of the Society
on the planning applications sent to the Society for comment,
particularly those relating to the conservation areas. We hope
through our comments to encourage good design and high-quality
developments which will improve rather than detract from the
special charm of this area.
