Harbours End

Welcome to Harbours End in the beautiful Seaside Town of Anstruther in the Kingdom of Fife.

Take a look at our 4 bedroomed detached holiday home with fabulous sea views, located north of Edinburgh and only a few miles from the St Andrews golf courses. You will find an abundance of places to visit, things to do and delicious food to eat.


Originally founded as a fishing village, Anstruther is home to the Scottish Fisheries Museum. Its main industry is now tourism, although other small scale manufacturing and service industries continue. Recreational vessels are now moored in the harbour, and a golf course is situated near the town. Anstruther Pleasure Cruises operate sightseeing/wildlife cruises from the harbour to the Isle of May, the UK’s primary puffin location, on board the vessel the May Princess from April to October. An abundance of other wildlife, including seal colonies, also inhabit the island. The Waid Academy, the local state comprehensive school, is a focus of the community and through its secondary role as a community centre. Anstruther has a parish church at its center that is perched on a small hill. This structure incorporates a tower/spire feature rare to Britain, but common to the area. Anstruther is close to the Caves of Caiplie situated on the coastal path to Crail.

Anstruther War Memorial is located in the cemetery, somewhat further inland. It is of an unusual war memorial form, being totally flat to the ground, in the center of a landscaped roundel, broadly adopting the shape of a celtic cross.
