Welcome to St Andrews Harbour


The town of St Andrews rates as one of the most popular places to visit in Scotland, well known for its association with golf, as a holiday destination with fabulous beaches and historic visitor attractions, as well as its world renowned University. Less well known is the town's Harbour sitting on its eastern periphery, yet just a few steps from the busy town centre and nestling below the ruins of the mediaeval Cathedral and 33m tower of St Rule's church (a climb to the top of which is rewarded by wonderful panoramic views).

St Andrews harbour is home to a fleet of around a dozen small fishing vessels, landing high quality shellfish from around the nearby shores, which are sold locally, nationally and exported. A small, but growing, number of pleasure craft are also based within the sheltered waters of the Inner basin.

    Feb 2016: This year's Harbour Gala is to be held on 23 July and as usual we look forward to it being a fun day for all the family. Activities will get underway at 11am and include a wide mixture of traditional and modern attractions. Human Table Football is back as well as side-stalls with games to test your skills; displays; bouncy castles and refreshments. Arts & Crafts will also be on sale in one of the marquees.

    We're also delighted that after a successful return to the Harbour last year, the Fifie sailing herring drifter Reaper will also be back. As you will appreciate Reaper is an expensive vessel to run and maintain and we would be delighted to hear from any local businesses or individuals who might like to help us with sponsoring the visit or contribute towards the Harbour Gala in other ways including the Raffle, stalls and refreshments.

    February 2016: Thank you to all who supported the Trust's new 50:50 Club last year, which raised a very healthy amount of around £700 towards maintenance activities at the harbour. Ticket holders will be being contacted shortly to hopefully renew your numbers for this coming year. New members are of course also welcome.

    For just £15 per year, you can purchase a ticket that will be entered into each monthly draw and an extra bonus draw at christmas, while at the same time supporting the upkeep of St Andrews Harbour. As the name suggests, half the monies raised will be put back into the prize fund and two numbers will be drawn each month for members to have the chance of winning. The more taking part the bigger the prizes, so please sign up now - application forms can be downloaded from the link below.
