Pillars of Hercules, Falkland, Fife.
Blink and you miss it. Pillars of Hercules is that typical hidden gem. Turn just off the A912 and it unfolds like a horticultural tardis. Shop, café, box scheme, vegetable farm, hens for eggs, and the best salads in Scotland. Its owner, Bruce Bennett likes it that way. Local food for local people, and he means it. No brown tourist signs, no fanfare, only a vision realised over 30 years of shovelling compost and having the confidence to get the practical jobs done.
