Site now temporarily closed for major refurbishment - due to reopen in 2024. The Harbourmaster's House is home to Fife Coast and Countryside Trust and Fife’s coastal centre. It offers information on the history of, and things to see and do on, the Fife Coastal Path.
The Harbourmaster's House is a B-listed 19th century building, which sits next to the historic Dysart harbour and is the HQ of the Fife Coast and Countryside Trust. The building houses Fife’s first coastal centre where you can find out more about the famous Fife Coastal Path. The centre also has interactive displays on the historic region, the North Sea and the ancient trading routes between Europe and Dysart.
On the ground floor you will also be able to enjoy a bistro which serves a fine selection of homebaking, hot and cold snacks, sandwiches, paninis, warming meals, tea, a range of coffees and soft drinks. Toilets are also available in the building which is open 7 days a week. Please check the Fife Coastal Path website for opening times.
The Harbourmaster’s House is a great location to visit before you start on your journey along the Fife Coastal Path. This long distance route around the coast gives you the chance to spot wildlife, investigate ancient religious sites, explore amazing geology and find out about the military history along Fife’s incredible coastline. If you feel like a rest why not take a break on one of Fife’s award winning beaches?
