Learn a little more about The Scottish Fisheries Museum
The buildings which house the Museum, in the main, date from the 16th – 19th centuries, the original core of which surround a cobble-stone courtyard. The courtyard itself has been associated with fishing since at least the 14th century and comprises part of the original land gifted by the then Laird of Anstruther, William de Candela, to the Abbot of Balmerino in North Fife, in 1318. The Abbot subsequently leased the area to the local townsfolk to enable them to sell or cure their fish, to dry and repair their gear and to bark their lines and nets in order to prevent rotting by exposure to salt water. In return, the Abbey was given a barrel of one hundred salt herring from each of the townsfolk’s catches. Find out more about the history here.
