Anstruther, Scotland

This evening, I am posting information on the popular seaside village of Anstruther which is located in the East Neuk of Fife in the east of Scotland, about 10 miles south of St. Andrews and directly opposite North Berwick across the Firth of Forth in East Lothian.

The scenic Fife Coast with its many quaint fishing villages is popular with visitors. Here can also be found Lower Largo, Earlsferry, Elie, St. Monans, Pittenweem and Crail.

Other facts and information:

  • Population is about 3,500.
  • Parish Church dates from 1634.
