Cellardyke HarbourHeading out of Anstruther, it is a short stroll to Cellardyke harbour.  Unfortunately Cellardyke is probably best known now for being the place where the first case of bird flu was discovered (in the UK) after a dead swan was found in the harbour. 

The picturesque harbour dates back to the 16th Century although it has been maintained and improved since then. A famous Cellardyke citizen is Captain Alexander Rodger who won the tea race from Foochow to London on his clipper the “Taeping” narrowly winning the race against his old friend Captain Keay from Anstruther in his ship “Ariel”. Despite sailing thousands of miles around the world there was only about 20 minutes that separated the boats at the finish.
