Easter Saturday morning in Anstruther has become a time to go a bit quackers - with the traditional Dreel Burn Duck Race

Now well into its third decade, the race has become an institution and it received tremendous support again this year from local traders. Afterwards it was into the Dreel Halls for refreshments, Easter Bonnet Parade and the prizegivings. The event is also now surrounded by the three-day King Creosote ‘Yellae Deuks’ Festival, which brought crowds of visitors and musicians to Anstruther from throughout the UK.
