Anstruther is one of the East Neuk of Fife’s favourite towns. Its position on the north side of the Firth of Forth gives it outstanding views south to the East Lothian coast, Berwick Law, Bass Rock and the Isle of May National Nature Reserve. Boats to the Isle of May sail from Anstruther harbour from May to September, making it a popular destination for birdwatchers. The town itself boasts a picturesque harbour, the excellent Scottish Fisheries Museum, world famous fish and chip shop and plenty of other good restaurants and convivial pubs. Anstruther also has beautifully preserved and restored buildings, two sandy beaches and a links golf course.
The Fife Coastal Path cuts through the town, with Pittenweem an easy mile and a half walk west and Crail four miles east. The trail connects what are, arguably, the most atmospheric and historically intact villages in Scotland. St Andrews, home of golf and of Scotland’s oldest university, is 10 minutes drive away. Regular bus services connect the East Neuk towns and villages.
Anstruther is approximately 1 hour 20 minutes from Edinburgh and 1 hour 45 minutes from Glasgow by car.
