Conference Venue – Bowhouse

Bowhouse is part of the Balcaskie Estate, located in the heart of the East Neuk, between Elie and St Monans. The East Neuk is the name given to the land running around the Eastern peninsula of Fife. It is made up of a string of ancient fishing villages and harbours and the adjacent farmland.

Historically, the main industry was fishing, and although this has dwindled and disappeared from most of the harbours, the area is still renowned for the quality of its fish and seafood, in particular for its shellfish.

The East Neuk produces some of the finest raw ingredients from the land: malting barley, finished beef and lamb, wheat, oilseed rape, potatoes, broccoli, soft fruits, wild roe deer and other game.

Remarkably, most of this produce leaves the East Neuk harbours and farms, destined for processing and selling in the central belt and further afield, before it can reach local homes and restaurants.

We want to disrupt this current pattern by making it easier for local people to connect directly with local growers, producers and ingredients, while retaining more of this amazing food on our doorsteps.

We are located on the A917 between Elie and St Monans – around 90 minutes from Edinburgh, under an hour from Dundee, and only 20 minutes from St Andrews.

There is ample parking on site and a bus stop in nearby St Monans for those coming by public transport.
