Photographer's Note

hello.....The name of Anstruther derives from Scottish Gaelic. The second element is sruthair ('burn, stream'), but the first element less certain: it is possibly Gaelic á(i)n ('driving') or aon ('one'), thus meaning either 'driving current or burn' or '(place of or on) one burn'.[8] The name of Anstruther Easter derives from Scots easter ('eastern'), since the village lies to the east of Anstruther, and Anstruther Wester correspondingly from Scots wester ('western').[9]

Anstruther-Easter and -Wester are separated by a small stream called Dreel Burn.[5] Their parishes and that of nearby Kilrenny are immensely historic.
