Anstruther Station - disused - Fife

Anstruther Station - unused since 1965, Anstruther Wester, East Neuk of Fife, Scotland

The station was closed in 1965 as part of the infamous Beeching cuts.

This photo is looking south-east from behind Antruther Wester and as well as the old railway bridge it shows several other points of interest.

The bridge is over the Dreel Burn which runs down past the newly-restored Dreel Halls - the square tower with the steeple, just left of centre - and divides Anstruther Easter and Wester. The harbour is visible as are the shops along the harbourside, the marina and the current RNLI station.

Not only can the Isle of May be clearly seen on the horizon but the boat that carries tourists to the island - The May Princess - can be seen heading back into the harbour.

That's the Dreel Burn flowing from right to upper left towards the sea to the north.
