The Local Area Guide to living in Elie

Nestled on the southern side of East Neuk, Fife, Elie is a former royal Burgh which merged with neighbouring village Earlsferry in 1929. Perfectly preserved Victorian architecture, long stretches of golden sandy beaches, and a well-known golf course has put Elie on the map as a popular seaside holiday resort. Elie's pristine beach has been awarded a 'Blue Flag Award' and its Watersports Centre offers an array of recreational sporting facilities, including sailing and surfing. The Elie Golf Club is where famous golf course designer James Braid first cut his teeth. Elie's golf courses offer 18 holes amongst lush, rolling hills and seaside views, and Earlsferry Links has changed little since 1895.

Strolling around Elie's charming high street allows you to soak in the historic atmosphere, with notable buildings, including the Parish Church which was constructed in 1639. You'll also be able to see the first Lighthouse in the East Neuk along the village's coastal path, where you may also be able to spot dolphins and seals frolicking in the waves.

Information about the local residents

Elie and Earlsferry offers a small village atmosphere, with a permanent population of 677 residents, according to the General Register Office for Scotland's 2011 Census. Yet this population can swell in the summer months, as holidaymakers from Edinburgh, Glasgow, and beyond flock to the area's picturesque shores to stay in self-catering cottages and bed-and-breakfasts. Originally a fishing village, Elie has also long been known as a popular holiday destination. Steamers from North Berwick and Leith transported Victorian families to the seashore in the 1800s, and the village still retains a strong yachting and sailing heritage.

Nearby Schools

Elie Primary School is located right on the village's main road, housing three classrooms, a multi-purpose hall, and administrative offices.
