/ / Easter In The East Neuk? 7 Ways To Make It Eggcellent! / /

1 Discover 'the place of the caves'! Did you know that's the meaning behind the name Pittenweem‬? Our little village is an old Pictish settlement and it was converted to christianity by St Fillan. He made his home in a cave that you can still visit on Cove Wynd. Discover more of this local history at
2 We'll be honest, the weekend forecast is mixed but enjoy the flashes of sunshine from an alfersco table on the square at our Funky Scottish cafe-gallery-boutique. We're on the high street in Pittenweem and serve tempting savouries + a completely delicious range of home-made cakes, with illy coffee and a selection of refreshing teas.
3 Head up to the braes for a great view of our village and all along the coastline. Watch out for storms rolling across the Firth of Forth as you play on the swings!
4 Raining? Head to Anstruther and sit-in for your fish and chips overlooking the marina at Anstruther Fish Bar. We also love discovering the stories behind our harbours and their fishermen at the Scottish Fisheries Museum.
5 Are you cooking dinner this Easter Sunday? Impress your guests by serving up on our Funky Scottish collection of contemporary, coastal-inspired kitchenware.
6 Experience a mini version of our annual Pittenweem Arts Festival this weekend.... the Easter Artists and Galleries Weekend is happening in Pittenweem from 25th - 28th March.
7 Lastly, roll an egg! With so many braes and wynds right here in Pittenweem, who could resist?
Happy Easter! xoxo

Our Resident Artist's Creative Winter Retreat! It's a wrap...

Here at Funky Scottish, we often say the quieter winter months are a great time to make time for new art.

Take a peek at one recent project...

Karen has been working on new designs for wrapping paper and note books.
