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.
During the 19th century, the East Neuk and most particularly the town of Anstruther have become an important trading centre for fishing and the North Sea herring industry.
Anstruther is since a superb town offering its charm and heritage to walkers and hikers taking on the Fife Coastal Path as well as families looking for a peaceful weekend. The nature lovers wishing to discover the Isle of May with the UK’s biggest Puffin colonies won’t be deceived and neither the discoverers of east coast fishing culture.
There is much more for the History fans: a secret bunker, plenty of castles and abbeys, the fisheries museums… Gourmets are welcome to enjoy fine restaurants and distilleries, in Anstruther, even the “fish and chips” is for experts to debate about. If you prefer a rest and a dream, you could join for a moment poets and lovers, waiting the sunrise at Fife Ness.
