St Fillan was an Irish missionary who was active in Fife during the early and middle 7th century.

Most of his life was spent as a hermit in the cave in the fishing village which came to be named after him, (Pittenweem means "place of the cave"). It was said that he managed to pray and write in the secluded gloom of the cave by means of a light which glowed from his left arm as he wrote with his right.

If you'd like to visit, pop in to the Cocoa Tree cafe to pick up the key (£5 refundable deposit).
