The Monimail Tower Project is an environmental organisation that promotes organic gardening and provides a haven for people suffering from stress. It has a small group of residents, and occupies a wonderful site six miles west of Cupar consisting of four acres of walled gardens, 12 acres of woodland and a renovated 15th- or 16th-century tower. The tower has a historical exhibition plus magnificent views from the roof. The project doesn't seem to have a website, but there is some information about it at www.wecan.org.uk/directory/direct85.html.
I found out about Monimail from a mention on The Pendulums' page at MySpace: they were going to play at the midsummer party there on 17 June 2006, and I decided to go and see them. They subsequently had to cancel, but the Tuberians made it (and gave me a lift there from Edinburgh - thanks, Kim!). Some pictures from the day of the party are at http://homepages.inf.ed.ac.uk/fmi/monimail.html. I enjoyed it so much that I stayed the night contrary to my original plan - setting out early the following morning to catch the train from Ladybank to get to my 10am croquet match back in Edinburgh. I expect I'll be back some time.
[PS [June 2007] It does now have a website: www.monimail.org; and I have been back, to take part in the harvest day in September 2006 - a quieter occasion than the midsummer party but still enjoyable and stimulating.]
