Can know to history of the Anstruther Lifeboat Capacity : unfortunately, the exhibition corners on each floor are small spaces, so it is not appropriate for large groups to join together at once.

We always pop in here when we are in Anstruther. Staff always nice, shop always has a nice selection of things to buy which helps the lifeboat service. The boat is always gleaming and we never get tired of seeing it.

This was a lovely little gift shop to check out but I wish it had more figurines or plush toys. It was cool to see where the money from the shop goes to: gear.

Have been into Anstruther twice this week and called into the lifeboat station on both occasions. Lots to see & learn and a visit to the shop is a must. Great volunteers, all incredibly friendly and helpful.
