The village of Blebo Craigs developed when vast quantities of sandstone were discovered
in the middle ages and quarried by driving tunnels deep into the hillside. This
stone was then conveyed into St Andrews by horse power where it was in
great demand by builders. Today you will see Blebo sandstone in many of
the fine old houses in the graceful crescents of St Andrews and also in
its famous West Port city gate.
Nowadays Blebo Craigs is a popular residential village surrounded by
pleasant countryside and with many woodland walks on the doorstep.
St Andrews is the main town in North East Fife a blend of medieval, Victorian and
