St Monans Breakwater

St Monans breakwater as seen from on top of the harbour wall. A zig-zag breakwater that is hidden from most locations around the village of St Monans. The small village of St Monans on the East Neuk of Fife, Scotland, is a lovely quiet conservation village with pretty cottages sitting on the waters edge.

The famous 'Zig Zag' breakwater was built to protect the listed Robert Stevenson designed harbour walls in St Monans. Make your way to the harbour wall that is furthest left as you stand looking towards the sea. Go along this wall and about 30 metres from the end there should be a ladder, climb the ladder to the top and the breakwater is on the other side.
