Did you know that in medieval times Crail in Fife was so important to the Scottish fishing industry that in 1310 Robert the Bruce granted it the rare right to hold a Sunday market? There is evidence that the port exported fish as early as the 9th century, and some fishing continues today. John Knox later preached a powerful sermon against the Sunday market in the town’s church.
