Anstruther is a small fishing village on the east coast of Fife in Scotland, very close to my home town. The meaning of the name Anstruther in gaelic is “small stream” and the small stream called the Dreel Burn in the foreground is more than likely the small stream in question.

It was originally a fishing village, and is home to the Scottish Fisheries Museum, but its main industry is now tourism, although other small scale manufacturing and service industries continue. Pleasure craft now moor in the harbour, and there is a golf course. Anstruther Pleasure Cruises operate sightseeing/wildlife cruises from the harbour to the Isle of May on board the ‘May Princess’ from April till October, the Isle of May is considered the UK’s No.1 Puffin location, there is also an abundance of other interesting wildlife and seal colonies on the Island.

The nine hole golf coures is interetsing and has what is classed as the hardest Par 3 hole which has gorse, sea, stony beach and a blind approach to the small green …. it doesn’t need any bunkers!

It has a double award-winning fish and chip shop, Anstruther Fish Bar, which won Fish and Chip shop of the year in 2001-2002 and was awarded the same prize once again, by Sea Fish Organisation, in 2009, as well as other fine fish and non-fish takeaways, and relaxed and formal dining restaurants. There is also the other famous Wee Chippy restaurant which has been voted the best place in the world for fish and chips.
