The Fife region
Fife is the perfect setting for a short break or a longer stay on Scotland's sunny east coast.
Whatever you want to explore - the country's best-kept beaches, the world home of golf in St Andrews, the delightful East Neuk fishing villages, the historic capital of Dunfermline, it's all in the Kingdom of Fife.
You'll discover a relaxed, refreshing and high-quality environment that's just 30 minutes from Edinburgh, but a world away from the city's grime and noise.
Anstruther's many shops and busy attractive harbour make it the main commercial centre of the East Neuk of Fife. Anstruther's association with the fishing industry has not been forgotten. The town is home to the Scottish Fisheries Museum which tells the story of Scottish fishing from the earliest times to the present day. Housed in a fascinating complex of buildings beside the harbour, displays include a recreated cottage belonging to a fishing family as well as a cronological series of displays charting Scotland's fishing heritage.
From the harbour you can take sea angling trips or visit to the Isle of May, a nature reserve only one mile long located out in the mouth of the Firth of Forth. Between May and September there is one departure to the Isle daily though departure times vary depending on weather and tides. Allow four or five hours for the round trip and remember to dress warmly. You can find out more from the boat operator'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.
Inland there are the remains of St Aiden's Chapel, dedicated to a monk who was murdered on the island by Danes in 875. Also inland from Anstruther is a relic from a very different age. Scotland's Secret Bunker is a truly remarkable and fascinating visitor attraction, a vast underground complex that remained secret until 1993 and which would have served as the seat of the country's government in the event of a nuclear war. A few miles to the west of the Secret Bunker is Kellie Castle, operated by the National Trust for Scotland.
Anstruther itself is a fascinating town. Take a walk along the cobbled streets through a rabbit-warren of little alleyways and wynds and note the dates on the buildings. In High Street many of the shops still display original signs and advertisements for companies long forgotten. There are restaurants serving local seafood specialities and Anstruther Fish Bar by the shore boasts it was voted the seller of Scotland's best fish and chips in 2001. And if you find Anstruther busy, for an antidote find your way to the hidden treasure of Cellardyke, whose harbour is just half a mile from Anstruther's but could be a world
