Pittenweem

Many examples of East Neuk architecture serve as the backdrop for the working harbor at Pittenweem. Look for the crowstep gables, white harling (the rough mortar finish on walls), and red pantiles (roof tiles with an S-shape profile). The weem part of the town's name comes from the Gaelic uaime, meaning cave.
