My husband and I live in Florida but I am from Scotland. We both love Scotland and purchased the flat so that we could have a place of our own when we visit family. We intend to spend a lot of time there after retirement.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2007

We chose Anstruther because it is a very popular holiday destination that is not too far from my family. The area is very charming and beautiful and offers many amenities.

We really enjoy the coastal walk that connects the fishing villages and the top notch seafood restaurants and pubs in the area. We like being close to St. Andrews - my husband enjoys all the great golf courses within easy driving distance as well as the fun 9-hole course in Anstruther. Being close to St. Andrews and only an hour to Edinburgh is also a big plus. I also have to say the water and harbor views from the flat are wonderful.

Spacious flat in excellent location with lovely view

It was very convenient to be able to book this flat on a per night basis. It would be equally enjoyable to take it on a weekly basis, which is much more common for self-catering arrangements. The flat itself and the location were ideal for a seaside get-away and I would stay there again if I was returning to the East Neuk of Fife for a holiday.

Property perfect for all the family - three generations from our family were on this trip! Very comfortable base for exploring the Firth of Fife area. Clean, fully equipt, with beautiful views to sit back and gaze at after a day's exploring. Perfect position in pretty little village with everything you need within walking distance. Was especially ready for the complimentary bottle of wine after our 5 hour trip!

Had a lovely week here the flat was so comfortable and was so pleased with how clean and well equipped the flat was complementary bottle of wine was a nice touch nice views from the windows over the harbour even from the kitchen, shops outside the door and good for exploring by car or walking along the coastline.It was nice just crossing the road to sit on the benches in the sun facing the harbour and sea view very relaxing...Anstruther chip shop the best had a couple fish suppers from here and good every time. Sheena the owner was very good at keeping in touch and left plenty of information regarding the flat.

Anstruther Harbour festival

On the plus side - - - The location of the property was perfect, with stunning views over the harbour and River Forth. It was spotless, spacious with everything that is needed to make our stay a right home from home. Several of our friends were staying in the area for the weekend and they were all impressed with the flat and they took the details away for the future. On the negative side - - - we had only two, the main door handle needs some minor maintenance and we could not get connected to the wifi.
