Welcome to St Monans
This ancient fishing village is named after a cave-dwelling saint who was probably killed by pirates. Apart from a historic windmill overlooking the sea, its main sight is the picturesque parish church, built in 1362 on the orders of a grateful David II, who was rescued by villagers from a shipwreck in the Firth of Forth. It was burned by the English in 1544 but restored. The church commands sweeping views of the firth, and the past echoes inside its cold, whitewashed walls.
