The Scottish Fisheries Museum

idmgThe Scottish Fisheries Museum tells the story of fishing in Scotland, and the people involved in the industry, from earliest times to the present.

Situated in a wonderful collection of historic buildings on the harbour of a small and beautiful fishing port in Anstruther,  the Museum has something new for every visitor to discover – bringing the story of the Scottish fishing industry to life, for young and old alike. 


issmgWithin the impressive complex of historic buildings, you can learn about the earliest beginnings of fishing; come face to face with the hard-working “Herring Lasses”; experience what life on board (and at home) would have been like for fishermen and explore real fishing boats in the museum’s boatyard. The museum’s collection is of national significance and includes an impressive range of art and artefacts.

Of course, no day out at the Scottish Fisheries Museum would be complete without a visit to the cosy tearoom, which has a great range of homebaking (ever popular with visitors and locals alike!), and there is also a well stocked gift shop.
