Location description from owner

The Scotland region

Cellardyke is a hidden treasure. Its harbour doesn't benefit from the direction signs that elsewhere in Fife tell you you're in danger of missing something worth seeing. And from the main coast road, the old heart of Cellardyke is screened by a veil of housing that simply looks like the outer edge of Anstruther.

But the effort is worth it. Cellardyke Harbour, still marked on maps as Skinfast Haven, may not be home to many boats, fishing or otherwise, these days. But in every other respect it is one of the best preserved and most attractive old fishing ports in Scotland.

Cellardyke

And Cellardyke's attractions are not confined to the harbour. The streets running south west from it, George Street and John Street, are crowded closely on both sides by cottages and houses, with those on their south east sides backing directly onto the foreshore. The effect is very like Stromness, but more so: or like the "unimproved" sections of Lerwick's waterfront.

Until the 1500s the settlement here was known as Nether, or Lower, Kilrenny and the harbour as Skinfast Haven, a name that still appears on modern maps. The name Cellardyke had its origins in "Sil'erdykes", which came from the shine of the herring scale in nets hung over walls (or dykes) to dry in the sun. Local residents became known as Dykers.

In the 1880s, over 200 fishing boats were based here. But a storm in 1898 damaged the harbour and the fleet moved half a mile down the coast to the relatively new and better protected harbour at Anstruther, starting the process of decline that has led to an almost empty harbour and the virtual disappearance of Cellardyke's identity under the subsequent expansion of Anstruther.
