Scottish Fisheries Museum - Anstruther

You won't believe what a day out we have to offer.
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.

Scotland's Secret Bunker

For 40 years Scotland kept a secret!

Hidden beneath an innocent Scottish farmhouse lies Scotland’s Secret Bunker. 2014 marks the 20th anniversary since the Bunker opened to the public, unveiling 40 years of secrets. We invite you to take the journey down the 450 foot tunnel and through the blast doors to discover the secrets of the bunker, which was built to help safeguard Scotland during the Cold War in the event of a nuclear attack.

The Secret Bunker lies 100 feet underground and is the size of two football pitches, one on top of the other so there is plenty of exploring to do! Come and discover how Scotland would have been governed from the depths of Fife and how they would have survived a nuclear attack from the most deadly bombs!

Anstruther Cheese Farm

Our family have been local farmers in the East Neuk of Fife since the 1930s using the same traditional methods today to ensure that the grass grows lush and green, the crops yield as good a crop as the Scottish weather will allow, and our happy, healthy cows produce top quality milk.

We started to make our cheese in January 2008 which is when we started the St Andrews Cheese Company, and it is our home bred herd of Holstein Friesians that provide the main ingredient –a real field to plate experience. In May of 2008 we opened our coffee shop where you can watch the cheese being made through our Viewing Gallery windows, enjoy delicious home baking or lunch and of course sample our range of award winning cheeses;Anster, Red Anster, Mature Anster, Smoked Anster and St Andrews Farmhouse Cheddar. On a clear day you can sit outside the coffee shop on the balcony and enjoy the panoramic views down across the fields towards the Firth of Forth and beyond.
