Find cottages in AnstrutherVisit Anstruther

Located in the county of Fife, Anstruther is the largest of a string of picturesque, traditional fishing villages along this lovely stretch of Scotland's coastline.

One of the things that Anstruther and the other nearby villages have in common is how easy they are on the eye. The charming harbour and buildings that line the waterfront at Anstruther give the village a picture-postcard quality.

The laid-back atmosphere that pervades the village adds to the feeling of tranquillity that envelops you when you are here. The history of Anstruther as a main centre for the fishing industry can be explored at the Scottish Fisheries Museum, located near the harbour. If history is not your thing, you can still enjoy the delights of the local fishing industry by sampling the menu at the famous Anstruther Fish Bar, which has won many awards over the years, including UK Fish and Chip Shop of the Year.

After exploring the quaint cobbled streets and browsing the shops, take a boat trip from the harbour to the Isle of May, a nature reserve in the Firth of Forth. Here you may be able to spot seals and puffins, as well as other local wildlife 'residents'. Sea angling trips can also be arranged locally and golfers will find a great selection of top quality links courses in the area.

Stay in one of the many Anstruther holiday cottages on your next break and experience the warmth of this traditional fishing village for yourself.
