A week in Kilconquhar.

My parents own a week long timeshare in one of the villas in Kilconquhar Castle Estates that falls over the Easter university holidays. It was lovely to spend time with them, my brother and my Grandparents.

My mornings consisted of coffee and a book and the occasional spot of sunshine.

As promised, here is a photo of my Dad and I way back when and last week. Not much has changed!!

The best bit about being away with my parents? Free food! My favourite dessert, Sticky Toffee Pudding.

Kilconquhar is a tiny village outside of Elie and is surrounded by picturesque countryside. Scotland is home to stunning beaches. We went for a family walk along Elie’s beach and loved it, despite the slightly cold conditions.

Much to my Dad and I’s delight, Elie itself had an amazing little shop, Elie Deli that sold the best cheese. Perfect for an afternoon or midnight snack of cheese on crackers, with wine of course.

The Ship Inn is on the corner of Elie beach and is a local pub with amazing food and views.

The seafood platter had some of the best fish I had ever tasted. The trout was outstanding. Dad and I shared it between us, slightly greedy. It could definitely be a family of four starter!

Over the course of the week, I noticed that spring had finally sprung! Despite my allergies to anything floral, I do love the look of flowers…

Another restaurant we visited was in The Old Manor Hotel in Lundin Links. The restaurant was a conservatory extension and we chose to dine at 6pm, to make use of the late afternoon Scottish sunshine. The views onto the golf course and Largo Bay were lovely.

The champagne pyramid they had gave me some future house inspiration.

The seafood chowder was delicious. Another recipe to try and recreate!

Scotland is stunning, especially in the sunshine. If you ever get the chance to visit Fife and the surrounding areas, take your wellies and waterproofs and sunglasses and explore some of the beaches.
