Periwinkle is situated in Largo Bay and from dawn to dusk this south facing property on the edge of the water can be bathed in sunshine. This part of Fife’s coast is referred to as the Scottish Riviera and although some way from being sub-tropical has far less rainfall than in the west of the country. Lower Largo is one of the historical fishing villages that make up the East Neuk of Fife and for centuries was known for it’s catches of Haddock where net making flourished and the fisherwomen were noted for their knitting. However, Lower Largo’s main claim to fame is its connection to Robinson Crusoe, it is the birthplace of Alexander Selkirk (B.1676) who was the inspiration for Daniel Defoe’s story. A statue of Robinson Crusoe, looking out to sea has stood at the site of Selkirk’s home since 1885.
There are few districts in Scotland that present a greater number of attractions to visitors than that which stretches along the north shore of the Forth from Leven to St Andrews. The bracing sea breezes, the clear blue waves, the flat sandy beaches, the wild and precipitous cliffs, the remarkable caves, the many golf links and courses, the fine old churches, the quaint old towns, the ruined castles, the romantic traditions, the beautiful landscapes, the magnificent views. The pleasant drives, walks and rides may all be enjoyed in the quiet and friendly corner of Scotland known as the East Neuk of Fife.
