    What a fantastic trip, took the boat from Anstruther. Loved every minute of it. The weather was fabulous. We were lucky enough to see plenty of Razorbills, Guillemots, Shags and Puffins, as well as grey seals bobbing around.

    Day trip to Anstruther from St Andrews. Nice small town, lovely harbour and some very old traditional boats being maintained and sailed by the volunteers of the museum. Very popular town for lunch at one of the fish and chips cafes.

    This is a small , sheltered , crescent shaped beach , to the west of the town adjacent to the golf course, and on the Fife Coastal Path. It’s predominantly sandy with a scattering of shells, and rock pools exposed when the tide is out. A fragrant hedge of Rosa rugosa rings part of the peaceful bay, which has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest ( SSSI ) due to it’s diverse flora and fauna , and bird life. Plus it’s also a winner of the “Keep Scotland Beautiful 2023 Beach Award.”

    We visited their August market weekend. These take place on the second weekend of most months. The place opens at 10am and plenty of people were there for opening time.
    There's a wide variety of mostly very high quality offerings from both market stalls and the companies that are there permanently. It's a place where you can while away a few hours. Especially if the weather is poor. There are nice touches like newspapers in the food trucks area.
    Highlights for us were the butcher, smoked fish stall and of course Futtle brewery.
    Well worth a visit, but get there early.

    The Dreel Halls are a complex of buildings that include what was latterly Anstruther Wester Parish Church , with it’s ochre coloured 16th century tower and steeple dedicated to St. Nicholas ; and an 18th century tolbooth.
    There is an adjacent graveyard 🪦 with some intriguing and interesting historic graves - some dating back to medieval times, and a superb view looking over the mouth of the Dreel Burn towards the attractive town , with benches to admire it. Anstruther Improvement Society now own and run the place as a community events venue, having fully renovated it for that purpose.

    This trail is a great way for kids to learn about the tiniest bits of space. It is interesting and you can get some steps in while learning about some space.

    Well, you couldn’t really miss this if you’re walking around the town, as it’s just across from the Dreel Halls , on the tight corner. This listed building is late 17th century, and the shell embellishments are the work of Andrew Batchelor , who extensively decorated with seashells 🐚 what was once his house in the 1840s, both inside as well as externally. Apparently he also adorned his coffin ⚰️ with shells, and , enterprisingly , charged people to view it. It’s been restored a few times since then, but guess it must be an ongoing task due to the amount of shells used.

    There is a nice playpark for kids. There are 2 football pitches both have nets. The big football pitches nets are a bit dodgy, but it's worth a kick about.
