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.

Things to do:

Golf! walking, bird-watching, sea swimming, beaches, sailing, pleasure cruises, sea fishing from harbour or boat, visiting cheese factory or craft brewery, painting, art galleries, festivals, visiting historic towns, archaeological sites.

Fab stay in Anstruther!!

  • 5 of 5

We are just back from a lovely family holiday in Anstruther. The house is beautiful, even nicer than in the pictures. Jane has thought of everything you could possibly need for your holiday! The welcome pack was gratefully received (thanks Jane). We have two daughters (5 & 2). They loved the house and particularly liked playing hide and seek in all the little cupboards around the house! The weather was mixed over the week. We had some fun at Muddy Boots and Cairnie Fruit Farm. The swimming pool at Leven was perfect for young children on the not so nice days. Hoping to return again once we have lost the lbs from all the delicious fish and chips we have consumed!!!!

Beautiful home in a lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a week in early August staying at this lovely property. Everything you need is here. Great facilities, lovely and clean and just a stroll takes you to the harbour. Great chippy, lovely pub food. Local co-op sells all you need.

Lots to do in the area. We visited St Andrews for beach and good eating. The walk along the coastal path from Crail to Anstruther was spectacular. We walked up Normans Law for fabulous panoramic views. Elie is a lovely spot too. Thanks for letting us stay!

Lovely House

Beautiful, well equipped house - everything we could have asked for as a home from home for our weeks stay. Welcome pack including milk and fizz which was a lovely touch. Jane was lovely to deal with and we will definitely be back in the future.

Car: not necessary

The East Neuk is perfect for walkers and nature lovers. The Fife Coastal Path offers beautiful beaches and stunning scenery and connects some of Scotland's most picturesque and best preserved towns. For birdwatchers the ferry to the Isle of May NNR leaves Anstruther from April to September. For families there are plenty of clean, sandy beaches and Bankie Park, which has excellent play equipment for children of all ages, is just round the corner. And then, of course there is golf - at its home in St Andrews 15 minutes drive away, or at Anstruther's own 9 hole course.
