Anstruther is one of the East Neuk of Fife’s favourite towns. Its position on the north side of the Firth of Forth gives it outstanding views south to the East Lothian coast, Berwick Law, Bass Rock and the Isle of May National Nature Reserve. Boats to the Isle of May sail from Anstruther harbour from May to September, making it a popular destination for birdwatchers. The town itself boasts a picturesque harbour, the excellent Scottish Fisheries Museum, world famous fish and chip shop and plenty of other good restaurants and convivial pubs. Anstruther also has beautifully preserved and restored buildings, two sandy beaches and a links golf course.
The Fife Coastal Path cuts through the town, with Pittenweem an easy mile and a half walk west and Crail four miles east. The trail connects what are, arguably, the most atmospheric and historically intact villages in Scotland. St Andrews, home of golf and of Scotland’s oldest university, is 10 minutes drive away. Regular bus services connect the East Neuk towns and villages.
Anstruther is approximately 1 hour 20 minutes from Edinburgh and 1 hour 45 minutes from Glasgow by car.

Really enjoyed our stay here
This was a nice cozy place, but what made it above average was the helpfulness and hospitality of the hosts. They seem to have anticipated our every need. This place had everything we needed for our holiday.
Spacious, well maintained and very well equipped. Had everything we needed and in a lovely area.
We had a week in Anstruther which we thought was lovely. It's easy to get to places like Edinburgh or Dundee. We also explored the local villages and found some lovely walks through woods by rivers and down to some great beaches. We even had sunshine every day and often walked down to the lighthouse as it was setting.
Lovely property, spacious and cozy, well equipped, own parking, 2 minutes from town & harbour
Easy to find, great location, 2 minutes from the town, harbour and beach, ideal having own parking outside the door. On arrival delighted to find a quiet peaceful property, bright spacious and tastefully decorated with lots of period features, lovely and warm and well equipped with everything we needed as a family of 5. 3 Great bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, lounge with large tv and DVD player, maps, games and local interest books. The kitchen and dining area had everything we needed and didn't know we needed, this included a nice welcome basket packed with goodies and also milk in the fridge.
We also used to washing machine a couple of times, this was really useful as the weather was not great during our stay.
A really great week was enjoyed by all, we have visited and stayed on the Fife coast many times and always have a great time, lots to see and do but being able to start the day from 8 union place and then relax there again in the evening really helped us enjoy this Easter week, would certainly consider staying there again.
Fab stay in Anstruther!!
We are just back from a lovely family holiday in Anstruther. The house is beautiful, even nicer than in the pictures. Jane has thought of everything you could possibly need for your holiday! The welcome pack was gratefully received (thanks Jane). We have two daughters (5 & 2). They loved the house and particularly liked playing hide and seek in all the little cupboards around the house! The weather was mixed over the week. We had some fun at Muddy Boots and Cairnie Fruit Farm. The swimming pool at Leven was perfect for young children on the not so nice days. Hoping to return again once we have lost the lbs from all the delicious fish and chips we have consumed!!!!
Beautiful home in a lovely place!
We had a week in early August staying at this lovely property. Everything you need is here. Great facilities, lovely and clean and just a stroll takes you to the harbour. Great chippy, lovely pub food. Local co-op sells all you need.
Lots to do in the area. We visited St Andrews for beach and good eating. The walk along the coastal path from Crail to Anstruther was spectacular. We walked up Normans Law for fabulous panoramic views. Elie is a lovely spot too. Thanks for letting us stay!
Loved our stay at 8 Union Place. Beautiful apartment which is well equipped. Apartment was spotless on arrival with a great welcome hamper....prosseco went down a treat! Super comfy beds... 11 year old felt like a princess in her superking sized bed!! Would def recommend
The East Neuk is perfect for walkers and nature lovers. The Fife Coastal Path offers beautiful beaches and stunning scenery and connects some of Scotland's most picturesque and best preserved towns. For birdwatchers the ferry to the Isle of May NNR leaves Anstruther from April to September. For families there are plenty of clean, sandy beaches and Bankie Park, which has excellent play equipment for children of all ages, is just round the corner. And then, of course there is golf - at its home in St Andrews 15 minutes drive away, or at Anstruther's own 9 hole course.
