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.
