3 Castle Street, Anstruther, KY10 3DD


Anstruther is a picturesque East Neuk village, with a choice of boutique shops, cafe's, chippy's, restaurants and pubs. It has a wide promenade facing onto the harbour, and pockets of beach to enjoy when the tide's out. From Anstruther Harbour, you can take sea angling trips or visit the Isle of May aboard the May Princess. This is a nature reserve only one mile long, located in the mouth of the Firth of Forth. During the summer season, departure times vary depending on tides, and can be cancelled in adverse weather. Allow four or five hours for the round trip, and remember to dress warmly. You can find out more from the May Princess's website. Between April and July the Isle of May's sea cliffs are covered in sea birds and the island is also home to a colony of grey seals. Visible from the mainland is the lighthouse, erected on the Isle in 1816 by Robert Louis Stevenson's grandfather, as are the remains of Scotland's first lighthouse, built in 1636, which burnt coals as a beacon.
