About the home
Built in 1790, a matter of month after the Bastille was stormed, this ancient cottage is located across the slipway from Dreel Tavern, the historic centre of Anstruther Wester and just 200 metres from the harbour, beach and Anstruther's many cafes, restaurants, pubs and shops.The cottage, which was fully renovated in 2009, is warm and spacious and benefits from being adjacent to the Dreel Tavern which is amongst the best food and drink establishments in town.
The 2 bedroom cottage sleeps 4. However 2 additional single beds are available at extra cost in the twin bedroom so the property can sleep a maximum of 6 - ideal for larger families.
Many of our guests bring their pets owing to the large walled and secure rear garden which is laid to lawn and which gives on to the slipway leading to a safe leafy walk along the riverbank well away from traffic . There is also a barbecue and patio furniture. The garden is glorious in sunny weather in the spring and summer as it overlooks the famous Dreel Burn (4th image) and the very spot where the peripatetic King James V of Scotland was assisted over the burn by a gypsy woman with unintended consequences as the disputed event led to the formation of Europe's first sex club (men only) in the seventeenth century.

The Fife region
Extending south of St Andrews as far as Largo Bay, Fife's East Neuk (or 'corner') is most famous for its incredibly picturesque fishing villages such as Crail, Anstruther, Pittenweem, St Monans and Elie.
Well patronised by holidaymakers and weekenders, the area's various restaurants are one of its highlights, with freshly landed seafood a speciality, but often complemented by produce gleaned from the fertile Fife farmland that rolls off pleasantly into the hinterland.
The Anstruther area
Anstruther is an atmospheric fishing village in the East Neuk of Fife, popular with day-trippers and holidaymakers.
Anstruther is the largest in a string of pretty, old-fashioned fishing villages along the stretch of Fife coast known as the East Neuk. Perhaps the top attraction of the place is simply tucking into a quality fish supper from a renowned establishment on the front, tossing chips to the seagulls and watching the fishing boats come in with their catch.
Boat trips to the Isle of May, several miles offshore in the Firth of Forth, run from May to September, for seeing puffins, seals and other wildlife. On dry land is the fascinating Scottish Fisheries Museum.
