19 Shoregate


A traditional Crail fisherman’s house perched just above the most photographed harbour in Scotland, 19 Shoregate is a coastal retreat bursting with character. This quirky, historical property offers stunning views over the harbour and out to the Firth of Forth.

The ground floor encompasses the main living spaces, including a kitchen/diner with a large dining table, TV lounge, and large conservatory or ‘sun room’, retaining many of its original features including internal exposed brickwork. The back door leads to a private, enclosed rear garden where you can access the annex, which is equipped with a double bed and en-suite shower room.

There is a master bathroom with a shower over bath set across the first floor, including three further bedrooms; a super king or twin, a double and a twin.

The second-floor compromises of the remaining two bedrooms; a single and a double. There is an additional bathroom on this floor also.

The private, fully enclosed rear garden and patio area can be accessed via the conservatory and provides the perfect space to enjoy the sunshine and fresh, coastal air.

Crail harbour and the Fife Coastal Path is less than a minutes’ walk away, as is the famous Lobster shack. Crail high street is just a minutes’ walk away in the opposite direction, where you can find all the local shops, cafes, and restaurants. The historic town of St Andrews is a 15 minute, scenic drive along the coast.

October 2021

19 Shoregate has beautifully exposed interior brickwork throughout. It’s very close to the harbour and beach. Lovely garden and full of character.

August 2023

This is a lovely location in the heart of a beautiful fishing village. Close to the harbour and the Fife coastal path. A good spot for a gathering of friends and family.

September 2021

19 Shoregate is perfect to host big families or groups! My family and I stayed for a week and absolutely loved it. There’s loads of room for everyone and bedrooms for the whole team. The location is really ideal for those who like seafood with a crab shack a stones throw away on the harbour but the best bit about it is you don’t hear any noise from the harbour in the morning. It’s well kitted out with loads of kitchen utensils, ready to host a dinner party! Would definitely recommend.

April 2024

The ‘Bolthole’ is a lovely place to stay and with 4 social spaces plus the garden always possible to find somewhere peaceful even with 10 residents including 4 young children. The house has everything necessary to make the stay pleasant. When there were issues the response from Kingask was excellent.
