I was surprised with this little gem by my partner on our 1st year anniversary trip. You need to find The Coca Three Shop, pay a one pound deposit, get a key and walk to the cave. Very surreal and intriguing. You then going to open a gate, switch lights and contemplate surroundings. Nice place for a little slow down or meditation if you fancy it.

St Fillan’s Cave was supposedly used as a chapel by a 7th-century missionary who reputedly possessed miraculous powers in that, when he wrote his sermons in the dark cave, his arm would throw light on his work by emitting a luminous glow. And if you believe that you are .... well, religious I suppose. Probably more verifiable is the claim that the cave was also used as a lock up for witches and various other ne’er do wells over the centuries. Of course, as Pittenweem is a fishing port, it goes without question that the cave must have been used by smugglers. Yeah - of course it was - all smugglers like to unload their booty in the main harbour then carry it up through the centre of the village to hide it in a well-known cave! All joking aside, this is a rather unique sort of place to find in the middle of a village and worth a look as you pass by.

Was pleased we took the time to visit this old attraction. For historical value it is quite special. It is up a steep hill with steps but worth it.

We have walked past this on numerous occasions and never went in. This time we did and so impressed! We thought it was going to be tiny but it was a lot bigger and beautiful and tranquil. The boys loved opening the gate! Worth a visit and interesting story.

This is a small cave half way down a road on the way to the port. The cave takes about 5 minutes to see and is well worth a visit, especially if you stop off at the Chocolate shop to pick up the key!
