Anstruther Harbour, Fife Coast

Anstruther Harbour, Fife Coast, Scotland

This evening, I am focusing on Anstruther, a charming former fishing village on the Fife Coast and now very popular with tourists.

I invariably inlcude a visit to Anstruther in course of my Scotland tours. Attractions here include:

  • Pleasant ambiance arising from a juxtaposition of (a) the old architecture dating back to the fishing port golden days of about 200 years ago (b) the busy marina full of a wide variety of boats and (c) shop attractions including the famous Anstruther Fish Bar which holds awards for the quality of its fish and chips.
  • The Scottish Fishweries Museum which is located close to the harbour and provides a comprehensive display of vessels associated with Scotland’s long involvement in the fishing industry.
  • Life Boat visitor centre.
