About the neighbourhood
The East Neuk ( Nook) of Fife is a historic and scenic area, loved by walkers, artists, photographers, golfers, watersports and those looking for a relaxing holiday with a wide range of activities and excellent hospitality. The East Neuk is famous for its quaint fishing harbours, coastal walks, golf courses, historic castles and houses, and of course the ancient university town of St Andrews. Anstuther is one of the coastal larger small towns, with a population of approx. 4500, and providing a good range of facilities.
Getting around
Dreel Cottage is located centrally, and is ony a few minutes walk past historic houses and church, to the beach and harbours. The Dreel Burn which separates Anstruther East and West runs past the bottom of the cottage garden. The East Neuk is well known for its walking and cycling routes, although a car will prove very useful to explore all the area has to offer. Anstruther is on a bus route to St Andrews, and rail stations are available at Leuchars ( near St Andrews) and Cupar.
