Lots of smaller and independent shops, on a good, old-fashioned high street. No malls, no centres, which can be a problem if its raining, but lovely different shops to discover.

The Adamson was lovely and we booked well in advance. We also had a lovely curry. Take a picnick to Tentsmuir nature reserve or better still BBQ food as they have BBQ facilities too. A total find for us.

Had a superb meal at Adamsons - would highly recommend it. Also thoroughly enjoyed our meal in Little Italy - both places were extremely busy & were turning folk away so be sure to book in advance.
