Anstruther is a small town on the East Coast in the Kingdom of Fife, Scotland. The two halves of Anstruther are divided by a small stream called Dreel Burn. Anstruther lies 9 miles south-southeast of St Andrews. It is the largest community on the stretch of north-shore coastline of the Firth of Forth known as the East Neuk, with a population of about 3,500 people. Anstruther was originally a fishing village, and is home to the Scottish Fisheries Museum, but its main industry is now tourism, although other small scale manufacturing and service industries continue. Anstruther Pleasure Cruises operate sightseeing/wildlife cruises from the harbour to the Isle of May on board the ‘May Princess’ from April till October, the Isle of May is considered the UK’s No.1 Puffin location, there is also an abundance of other interesting wildlife and seal colonies on the Island.
