Anstruther is a charming fishing village in the East Neuk of Fife, popular with day-trippers and holidaymakers.
Located south of St Andrews, Anstruther is the largest in a string of pretty, old-fashioned fishing villages along the stretch of Fife coast known as the East Neuk. Perhaps the top attraction is simply tucking into a quality fish supper from the Anstruther Fish Bar, which in recent years has won a number of awards including UK Fish and Chip Shop of the year. Enjoy the locally caught fish by the harbour as fishing boats land their catch.
Look out for puffins, seals and other wildlife on a boat trip to the Isle of May, which run from May through to September. Back on dry land, another attraction is the fascinating Scottish Fisheries Museum.
Just half a mile east of Anstruther is Cellardyke, a hidden treasure often overlooked by visitors. This picturesque harbour town, which was designated a Conservation Area in 1977, is a beautifully preserved old fishing port lined with charming houses, unspoilt scenery and a great restaurant.
