This church was built between 1362 and 1370 as a chapel which was endowed by David II. It is situated in a clifftop graveyard overlooking the sea, and has the distinction of being the closest church to the sea in Scotland. St. Monans is a T plan church with north and south transepts, a two stage crossing tower with spire and a four bay choir. There are many surviving medieval features.
Popular with film makers, scenes from The Railway Man and Whisky Galore were both filmed here.
