Find cottages in Anstruther

Located in the county of Fife, Anstruther is the largest of a string of picturesque, traditional fishing villages along this lovely stretch of Scotland’s coastline.

One of the things that Anstruther and the other nearby villages have in common is how easy they are on the eye. The charming harbour and buildings that line the waterfront at Anstruther give the village a picture-postcard quality.

The laid-back atmosphere that pervades the village adds to the feeling of tranquillity that envelops you when you are here. The history of Anstruther as a main centre for the fishing industry can be explored at the Scottish Fisheries Museum, located near the harbour. If history is not your thing, you can still enjoy the delights of the local fishing industry by sampling the menu at the famous Anstruther Fish Bar, which has won many awards over the years, including UK Fish and Chip Shop of the Year.

After exploring the quaint cobbled streets and browsing the shops, take a boat trip from the harbour to the Isle of May, a nature reserve in the Firth of Forth. Here you may be able to spot seals and puffins, as well as other local wildlife ‘residents’. Sea angling trips can also be arranged locally and golfers will find a great selection of top quality links courses in the area.

Stay in one of the many Anstruther holiday cottages on your next break and experience the warmth of this traditional fishing village for yourself.

    Ref: 29784


    The Great Lodging is located in the heart of the seaside village of Anstruther, or Anster, as it’s known locally. The Great Lodging, known as ‘Fernbank’ for many years until the current owners revived the original name in 1993, consisted of four separate dwellings dating back to the 1500s. In 1643 it was owned by the Borthwick family who owned many estates nearby. In 1752 it was passed to George Dishington, who is strongly believed to be a descendant of Robert the Bruce, King of Scots. Dishington went on to buy the other properties that now form The Great Lodging. His descendants lived in the property until 1885 when it was owned by John Melville-Keay, captain of ‘Ariel’, a China tea clipper ship which almost won The Great Tea Race of 1866. The most famous of all tea clipper ships has to be the ‘Cutty Sark’ whose captain, George Moodie, was born in Fife.

    The aptly named Great Lodging Red House (ref 29785) provides accommodation spanning three floors. It is tastefully furnished throughout with antique and period furniture. Spiral stairs wind through the house to the living/dining room, then up to the bedrooms. After catching your breath and admiring the view from the double bedroom, continue to the top floor from where you will be rewarded with wonderful views over the Firth of Forth and a spacious second living room spanning the whole of the second floor.

    Garden Flat (ref 29784) forms part of the owner’s home and offers a real home from home atmosphere and makes a perfect retreat for 2 guests. It is furnished with period furniture and antique rugs and retains many original features including an inviting open fire in the living room and quarry tiled floors. The living and dining room also have quaint window seats which look onto the private, south-facing patio – a real sun trap on summer days.

    Guests are welcome to wander in the well-tended garden of the main house, shared with the owners - the perfect place to relax after a day exploring the area. Both properties can be booked together for up to 8 guests. Ideal for friends or two families who wish to holiday together, but also have some privacy.

    This picturesque corner of Fife, known as East Neuk, has many visitor attractions including many championship golf courses and is only 9 miles from St Andrews. Enjoy leisurely walks on the beach just 200 yards walk and treat yourself to fish and chips from an award-winning restaurant on the seafront. If you wish to venture further afield then the bustling city of Dundee can be reached in 30 minutes, and Perth and Edinburgh within an hours’ drive. Shops, restaurants and bars are all within a few hundred yards of your front door.

    Walker’s Neuk is an immaculately presented, ground floor cottage apartment situated in the charming fishing village of Anstruther. Renovated to a very good standard and thoughtfully furnished for comfort and ease, it creates a wonderful atmosphere for a relaxing holiday. This is just the ticket for exploring the cobbled streets, little alleyways and working fishing harbour, where you can watch the fishermen land their catch. Award-winning fish and chip shops, restaurants, cafés, bars, local shops and galleries are all within a few minutes’ walk, or take a boat trip to the Isle of May and visit the world-renowned bird sanctuary and nature reserve, famous for puffins, grey seals and other wildlife. Enjoy leisurely walks along the Fife Coastal Path, which runs through the village, and visit historic castles, pretty fishing villages and many beautiful beaches and coves. The area is famous for golf courses, with a challenging 9-hole course along the shore and many links courses in the surrounding areas. The sunny back garden is set over two levels and is shared with the upper apartment. It is the perfect place from which to relax after a day exploring the area. From the upper level garden you can enjoy beautiful sea views of the Bass Rock and over the Firth of Forth towards North Berwick, or on cooler days, curl up in front of the wood-burning stove with a glass of wine.
    The land at East Green in Anstruther was originally common ground, but in 1221 the Balmerino Monks were granted the right to pasture four cows and one horse. The monks businesses grew and small workshops were soon built to facilitate this. Walker’s Neuk was built in front of the site of their workshops in the 18th century, and workshop chimneys still jut out from one of the walls in the secluded gardens. Walker’s Neuk used to house the local blacksmith, whose brass founding facilities were kept busy making horseshoes for the horses that were working just along the road at the old gasworks. The upper apartment still has the iron bar on display where the forge door used to hang. Across the road is the birthplace of Andrew Waid, a local benefactor whose legacy is the foundation of the local secondary school in 1886. During the 1730s and 1780s the British Government received grants to set up whaling ports, some of this money came to Anstruther and in a land between Waid’s home and Hadfoot Wynd, a boiling house was erected. Two whalers called ’The Rising Star’ and ’Hawk’ worked for the company. Unfortunately, Anstruther could not compete with the other two main whaling ports on the east coast of Scotland, and the company dissolved leaving behind the legacy of Whale Close. The site of the boiling houses is now home to The Fisheries Museum. St Andrews is 9 miles away, and Edinburgh, Stirling, Perth and Gleneagles are all within an hour’s drive. Beach 200 yards. Shop and pub 200 yards, Michelin star rated restaurant 100 yards.
