Anstruther, fondly known by locals as Anster, is the largest settlement in Fife's East Neuk area. This fascinating seaside village is said to have had its beginning back in the Pictish era with solid evidence also dating back to the early Christian church. A lovely picturesque village, Anstruther's busy harbor is watched over by a row of shops and restaurants.
Fife is one of the historical regions of Scotland and was originally a Pictish Kingdom. It is still called the Kingdom of Fife and is situated between the Firth of Tay and the Firth of Forth. Originally Fife had three main districts - Dunfermline, Kirkcaldy and North-East Fife. The functions that were performed by these districts are now performed by the Fife counsel.
