Crail was founded in the 800s and sits above on the Firth of Forth, which is the wide estuary of the River Forth that flows into the North Sea. Many houses have their own vegetable and flower gardens and owners participate in a secret garden tour for the annual Scotland's Garden Scheme, a charity fundraiser.
The town has a great example of a 17th-century doocot, or dovecote, that housed royal pigeons. The bird manure was then recycled for the gardens.
