ANSTRUTHER GOLF CLUB
From historical roots
Anstruther Golf Club was founded in 1890 and has seen many changes over the years. The initial layout comprised 7 holes with trenches through the middle of the course and poles scattered over the greens to stop gliders landing during the war.
In more peaceful times the course was extended to an excellent 9 holes which is kept in superb condition throughout the year.
The course is located 9 miles south of St Andrews and stretches along the shoreline between Anstruther and Pittenweem. The spectacular views over Anstruther Harbour and out to the Isle of May, Bass rock and south west to Edinburgh are a constant distraction.
Golfers should beware of Anstruther Golf Club’s version of Amen corner which comprises a series of 3 challenging par 3’s starting with The Rockies (5th) voted the toughest par 3 in the UK!
Golf club with licensed bar and bar meals available, visitors welcome.

SCOTTISH FISHERIES MUSEUM
National Institution, International Reputation
Situated in a wonderful collection of historic buildings on the harbour of a small and beautiful fishing port, we are a charitable trust which has become a national institution with an international reputation.
Our principal aim, in all of our efforts with regard to the displays in our extensive museum and our many educational and research activities, is to excite informed interest in the development of the Scottish commercial fishing industry among people of all ages in and beyond Scotland. The core story that we have to tell is the history of how, through a constant process of innovation, the Scottish fisheries became such an important part of the lives of so many Scots.
EAST NEUK DOOK
Make a Splash!
On Boxing Day, it has become an annual tradition for some brave locals (lovingly named as 'loonies') to run into the waters of the Forth, in order to raise money for Charity. This light-hearted event really binds the community, bringing so many local people together, from the loonies to the volunteers out in lifeboats.
If you want to make a splash, be sure to take part in the coming year!
