Local Area

Beacon Court is situated in Anstruther, a coastal town renowned for its beautiful harbour, attractive mix of shopping and of course, delicious fish and chips! Originally a fishing village, this pretty town has a deep rooted history - much of which is showcased at the Scottish Fisheries Museum, one of Anstruther's top attractions. Another popular attraction for nature lovers is the Isle of May, which can be reached by ferry in the summer months from Anstruther Harbour. The island offers an abundance of wildlife both on land and in the surrounding waters, including various seabirds such as puffins and guillemots, plus sealife including seals, dolphins and even whales if you are very lucky!
