It offers self-catering accommodation suitable for all, including those who are elderly, have mobility issues and need disabled access. A ramp leads from the pavement to the Flat's own front door. Inside there are no steps, just one short ramp to the bedroom and shower room.

Helen and Nigel moved to Pittenweem in 2016 when they had the chance to buy the historic Thistle House on Mid Shore. They are both now retired and opened Thistle Flat last year for holiday lets on the ground floor.
Helen and Nigel live upstairs from Thistle Flat and aim to be there to greet you when you arrive and to be on hand, or just a call away, during your stay. Please do contact us for more information; we will be happy to discuss your needs and will do our best to make your visit to this lovely part of Scotland really special.

The neighbourhood:
Pittenweem is on the Fife coastal path, very popular for both short strolls and serious hikes. It is 20 minutes’ drive from the historic university town of St Andrews, the home of golf. You can easily drive (or walk) to the other seaside towns of the 'East Neuk': Crail, Anstruther, St Monans and Elie. Kellie Castle, the Secret Bunker and Kingsbarns Distillery are popular attractions nearby.
But you may simply want to stay put, watching life on the shore and exploring Pittenweem. Walk along the piers for views of the boats entering and leaving the last working fishing harbour in the East Neuk. The village has a thriving artists’ community with a selection of galleries displaying their work; there are several cafes, pubs and the new Dory Bistro and Gallery on East Shore, owned by Helen's sister Ruth and her partner Malcolm, a professional artist.
