Hi, Friends! I’m so glad you stopped by today. Hope you are having a lovely weekend.
I have been reflecting back on a few of the Scottish villages that Mr. C and I only saw a peek of but that someday deserve a second look. Elie is one of those places. I can’t help but feel that we somehow missed the boat on this one.
Located on the Firth of Forth in the East Neuk of Fife, Elie is a popular and picturesque seaside village that was established in the 16th century. It became a Burgh of Barony in 1589 and as such, was under the control of the Lairds of Ardross – landowners who held their estates directly from The Crown. The Lairds were in control of the town council and court and therefore, the villagers were dependent upon these men in matters of trade. (Burghs were abolished in 1975.)
