An imposing Victorian residence built in 1870 for John Smith, a famous tea clipper captain. Set on the western side of the picturesque town of Anstruther, it is only a short walk to the harbour, town centre and excellent restaurants. There’s a very comfortable and relaxing residents’ lounge on the ground floor and a small, private reading room on the first floor. The impressive, honesty bar includes a range of over 25 whiskies, local and Scottish beers and excellent wines carefully chosen by owner Mark who is by trade a very experienced winemaker. The eight en suite bedrooms are decorated to a notably high standard. On the top floor is the Captain’s Cabin, a replica of a ship master’s cabin, where John Smith once watched the fishing fleet from its small east-facing window.
