ELIE is a parish and police burgb and
seaport, with a station on the Thornton
junction, Anstruther and St. Andrews sec-
tion of the North British railway. The
parish of Elie. which extends 3£ miles along
the north shore of the Firth of Forth by
about 1£ inland, and is in the Anstruther
small debt court district; in 1892, under the
provisions of the *' Locel Government Act,
1890," it was added to the royal burgh of
Earlsferry, of which town Elie is really
a suburb ; the parish boundaries are
St. Monance on the east, Kilconquhar
on the north and Newbarn on the
west. The burgh is situated on the
north-east part of Elie bay, 14 miles
south-east from St. Andrews, 32 north-
east from Edinburgh and 5 east from
Largo, and is governed by a provost, two
bailies and s'x councillors. There is a
small well-sheltered harbour but no docks.
The trade of the district consists in the ex-
port of potatoes. The National Bank of
Scotland Limited and the Clydesdale Bank
Limited have each a branch here. There
are golfing links and a good beach, and
Elie is a summer resort in conjunction
with Earlsferry. In one of the streets
near the sea are some substantial ancient
residences, evidently once the habitation
of families of distinction. At the lower
end of the parish, close to the sea coast,
is the hill of Kincraig, which rises to a
height of 200ft. above the level of the sea,
and its rocky slopes contain several large
caves. Elie House, the residence of
William Baird esq. D.L., J.P. is a fine
mansion of stone standing in good grounds.
William Baird esq. of Elie House, Dame
Malcolm, of Balbeddie and Grange, and
Miss Gourlay are the principal landowners.
The area comprises 2,020 acres; rateable
value for the burgh, £7,844, and land
wards, £3,545 ; population of the parish
in 1881, 670; and in 1901, 1,142, including
687 in the police burgh of Elie, and 317
