The East Neuk of Fife villages
Fife is a region of remarkable variety, all contained within 1,325 square km on the east coast of Scotland. The ‘Kingdom of Fife’ is famous for its colourful fishing villages, glorious beaches and coastline, and St Andrews – the home of golf. There’s much more to enjoy though. With its rich culture, history, and heritage, outdoor activities, leisure pursuits, delicious local food and welcoming accommodation, you’ll want to come back to Fife again and again.
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. Anstruther is the most important of a few settlements forming the East Neuk of Fife villages, the East Corner in Old Scots. The East Neuk has a rich history along with Scotland and the Kingdom of Fife, one of the seven original Pictish kingdoms of Caledonia.
Anstruther War Memorial is located in the cemetery. It is of an unusual war memorial form, being totally flat to the ground, in the centre of a landscaped roundel, broadly adopting the shape of a celtic cross.
