Holidays and high days continue at Crail

Festival fever continued in Crail last weekend, with the perfect summer weather turning up the heat on an aleady successful annual event.

There has been no sign of festival fatigue as hundreds of people flock to the East Neuk town to pack out many of the organised events, from ceramics workshops to big music attractions such as Donnie Munro.

Even the destruction of the large sand sculpture, created for the recent East Neuk Festival, has not marred the fun being had by locals and visitors alike.

The year’s festival programme has been an eclectic mix that has had something for everyone, including opera, a craft fair, music from World War Two, sports and even a fossil hunt.

Adding to the weekend’s activities was the ever-popular annual RNLI Gala Day, which had throngs of people making a beeline for the harbour to enjoy its programme of events on Sunday, including Anstruther Lifeboat, HM Coastguard, Billy Anderson’s Accordian Band, stalls and a barbecue.

The festival continues until Saturday, when the former Runrig frontman brings the event to a close on a fitting high note.
