The busy holiday weekend and fine weather helped bring visitors and a buzz of excitement to the East Neuk Open Studios event.

Now organisers are hoping that with participating artists throwing open their doors again next weekend, people will take the chance to come back and visit the studios they missed.

There was also a boost from other local events happening at the same time, such as the Rotary Coastal Walk, with people spotting the distinctive red balloons marking the open studios.

Now in its second decade, the popular twice-a-year initiative this time round has 34 artists taking part, such as Ann Smith, pictured above, spread out along the East Neuk, from Upper Largo to Boarhills.

“The villages along the coast were really busy, which was great, but I’d also encourage people to visit some of the fabulous artists who are not within walking distance,” said Jill Calder, one of the organisers. “They may be a bit harder to get to but they are well worth it.”
