The Kelly Lodging was built in the 16th century, and is so called because it was the town-house of the Erskine Earls of Kellie, whose seat, the magnificently preserved Kellie Castle, lies less than three miles away inland.
This is the insanely picturesque wee town of Pittenweem this afternoon…..after being given the Prisma treatment. I’m trying not to overuse this app cos I think folk are already getting sick of it, but given that the Pittenweem arts festival kicks off tomorrow I thought an image that looks more like a painting was entirely appropriate :)
Original Acrylic Study, Pittenweem, East Neuk, Fife.
Pittenweem is a busy fishing port on the East Neuk of Fife. Its name meaning ‘place of the caves’ refers to St Fillan’s cave in Cove Wynd which was first used as a chapel in the 700s.
The port itself is very colourful not only with the many different fishing boats in the harbour but with the white houses with red and orange roof pantiles brought to the area through trade with the Low Countries.
A busy tourist location Pittenweem also boasts a well respected Arts Festival which transforms the village every August into a hub for artists and art lovers.
