St Monans, East Neuk of Fife, Scotland. This is where the scenes were shot for The Railway Man film starring Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman. Scenes for the movie of the best-selling novel by Eric Lomax were shot this week at the harbor and St Monans Parish Church in the East Neuk of Fife. St Monans Church is situated within its kirkyard just to the west of the village on the very edge of the sea. It has a very dramatic setting, perched on a low rock, reached over a small valley with a burn. As seen from most directions it has the sea as a backdrop. A more modern cemetery stands further westwards on the upper slopes of the little hill. This contains the local war memorial. Standing at the extreme west end of this a romantic ruin can be viewed across fields, again perched on the sea edge. It is often said that St Monans is the church nearest the sea in the whole of Scotland.
