What is Ovenstone 109?

It's a one-time tractor salesroom, a local landmark building just outside Pittenweem. Its new owner Nick Fleming has given the festival a wonderful exhibition space for twelve artists: painters, jewellers and textile makers.


Ovenstone 109 is only five minutes from Pittenweem’s Festival car park. Cobalt Contemporary Gallery and Ovenstone Artists are on the way, also with parking. Kellie Castle is just another mile. Look at the map.


Nick’s team and the artists offer a warm welcome to visitors. The site has ample parking, toilet facilities, coffee and home baking and a lovely picnic area beside its small reservoir.

  East Neuk Microbrewery

A brand new microbrewery located just outside Pittenweem in the heart of the East Neuk


Ovenstone 109 is being developed by our unique and experienced engineering partners to produce locally crafted beers and ales that will offer you a different brewery experience. We will unravel the mystique behind the craft brewing revolution and guide you through malting to mashing and beyond.


Come and visit to see the wide range of wonderful artists and find out more about our new and exciting venture.

Pittenweem Artists & Galleries at Easter    April 14th-17th

Pittenweem Arts Festival in August is nationally known but every Easter many of the village’s resident artists and its seven galleries hold an open weekend to welcome in spring, show their latest work and highlight their new exhibitions. To add a new twist to our event this Easter, twelve artist/makers from Dunfermline’s Fire Station Creative will join us by exhibiting in ART@47 from April 14 - 22.


As well as being home to many artists, Pittenweem is a scenic coastal village and its cafes are highly recommended. Do come along for an inspiring day out. Venues (pick up a map, or download one here) are open daily 11-5.
