About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Great flat with wonderful views over the Firth of Forth and Anstruther Harbour. Anstruther is just 9 miles south of St. Andrews in the picturesque East Neuk of Fife. A beautiful coastal walk connects the fishing villages along the coastline. Anstruther is the largest of the five villages and the flat is located on the main street of town just steps from many great shops, pubs, and restaurants. The ferry to the Isle of May leaves from Anstruther Harbor. The island has a fascinating history and is a bird watcher's paradise. The East Neuk offers many historical places of interest as well as beautiful beaches and lots of outdoor activities.

The flat has 2 bedrooms and a sofa bed in the living room so it can sleep up to 6 people maximum. Both the larger bedroom and the living room have outstanding views over the Firth of Forth and Anstruther harbor. The flat is part of a listed building rebuilt in 1835.

Keywords: Comfortable, spacious apartment with harbor and water views situated in a beautiful area of Fife, Scotland, just 9 miles south of St. Andrews. Anstruther is one of 5 picturesque fishing villages along this coastline.

About The Owner

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

Why The Owner chose Anstruther

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Really lovely flat.

  • 5 of 5

Clean, bright, super view. Lots of cafes etc to eat. Great to wander around the harbour for a little nose.

Had a great little swim out of the bay to the end of the harbour.

Overall excellent.

I was most impressed with the locality and the view,the bus stop right outside the door .

  • 4 of 5

As I have a niece in Pittenweem and another has a caravan in silverdyke it was an ideal location for myself,my daughter and granddaughters to meet up for a wee family get together. The flat was more spacious than I thought and we had everything we needed. I did notice though there was no hairdryer but fortunately I has taken my own. I would definitely recommend it to anyone and it even has the famous chippie on the doorstep!!

Updated Historical Flat with North Sea View

  • 5 of 5

Invited guests from England to stay with us and we all loved it. The beds were comfy, the pillows were the best in 6 months of traveling, the living room and master bedroom overlooked the harbor and North Sea. It is right in town, so shopping and dining are right there. The information from the owner about location was great and the flat had wonderful amenities; full kitchen with washing machine, nice size bath with tub, good size rooms with appropriate furniture and dining tables in kitchen and living area. Would happily stay again.
