Anstruther has a beautiful harbour, we are so glad we stayed there. There are plenty of shops, bars and quirky attractions to keep you busy. The sun rises and sun sets (if you get lucky with the weather) are stunning.

We walked across to Anstruther during our recent holiday in Pittenweem. A very interesting harbour, good choice of pub/restaurants, interesting shops for a wander. A museum at the end of the harbour before you continue to Cellardyke.

Anstruther harbour is very pretty for a leisurely stroll. There are several very nice eateries and bars. The Boathouse serves food and wine, and has live entertainment on Saturday/Sunday. It’s a good base for touring the east neuk.

Lovely area to visit with a the marina and harbour to one side and shops on the other. A popular spot due to award winning chippie at one end plus other pubs, restaurants and shops. Ample parking beside the harbour. Worth visiting.
