Cellardyke and Anstruther

Yesterday as a family we were invited to eat at a friends house in Cellardyke, our host being a fisherman naturally provided the finest and freshest local self caught seafoods. Starters was fresh crab meat with salad and various dressings on thinly cut toast followed by barbecued codling and mackerel, salads, breads and dressings. Yes we did enjoy. A wander from Cellardyke to Anstruther Harbour to walk it off and a look at his wee fishing boat. Along side was a keep net holding live Codling and a large Pollock destined for Deep Sea World North Queensferry. Fish eat Fish and being in captivity, stocks need replenishment.
Anyway I hope to be out on The Firth of Forth to help with a bit of line fishing Mackerel, weather permitting as I'm no a natural sailor.

Looking south east from Cellardyke harbour wall. From Cellardyke to Anstruther is a good half mile walk down George Street, John Street and James Street which run parallel to the shore which is hidden by the closely packed houses.

Above the entrance to the Scottish Fisheries Museum Anstruther.
Situated on the harbour front in Anstruther, in the heart of the Fife fishing community, the Scottish Fisheries Museum tells the story of fishing in Scotland and its people from earliest times to the present.
Since it was opened in 1969 the Museum has grown in size and in the range of its galleries. Well worth a visit.
