The Spindrift, the well-known, multi award-winning Victorian guest house in Anstruther, is up for sale.

The highly-regarded property – built in 1870 for a tea clipper captain – has a price tag of around £550,000.

The two-storey house has eight bedrooms, all with en suite facilities and decorated to a high standard.

There is an attractive residents’ lounge, providing guests with a stylish and comfortable setting in which to relax. Next to the lounge is a 16-cover dining room, serving both breakfast and evening meals.

One unique feature of the four-star gold guest house is the ‘Captain’s Cabin’ on the top floor, providing particularly attractive and memorable accommodation. 

This room replicates a ship master’s wood-panelled cabin, with a small east-facing window looking towards Anstruther harbour.

The sale is being handled by Ken Sims, of Christie + Co’s Edinburgh office, who said: “This is an excellent business which is highly recommended in both Lonely Planet and the Michelin Guide. It has won numerous awards over the years, including Visit Scotland Taste Our Best, Les Routiers Guest House of the Year 2013, 
Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence 2012-13 and 2014, and the Healthy Living award.”
