Discover the history of the Scottish fishing industry on this exclusive tour
Join us on a guided tour of the Scottish Fisheries Museum to learn the story of the development of the Scottish commercial fishing industry. This will include the opportunity to go onboard the Reaper
, a Fifie sailing herring drifter and part of the National Historic Fleet.
Will will meet at 11:00 at the Scottish Fisheries Museum
in Fife, opposite the RNLI lifeboat station and a paid car parking area. You can find more information on getting to the museum on their website
and on their accessibility page
. The museum has a café
and Anstruther also has an excellent fish and chipperies with indoor seating - though members brave enough to face the weather and the seagulls might prefer to dine out on the harbour walls!
As this tour will include sections outside and onboard the Reaper vessel, we recommend all attendees wear warm, wind-proof clothes that are suitable for the weather. Organisers will assess the weather forecast 5 days in advance to check for unfavourable conditions.
Who should attend
This event would be suitable for adults and children who want to learn more about the history of Scottish industry, or have an interest in boats.
Cost and booking
This event is open to all, and tickets cost £8 which covers entrance to the museum and the guided tour.
