We are a registered charity, run by a small group of volunteers. We collect, publish and exhibit material from the former Royal Burghs of Anstruther Easter, Anstruther Wester and Kilrenny (which includes Cellardyke). Since our formation in 1992 we have built up an archive of thousands of items which we are constantly adding to.
Although the Burgh Collection is not a museum, the Collection is accessible to the public by arrangement. Please use our contact page to ask for details and watch this website for news of specific open days.
The Collection is a historical and educational resource for all the local community and for those across the world who have links to this beautiful part of Scotland. We have helped people in the past track down relatives or found photographs of local places of which they have family connections.
We are a small organisation mainly funded by sales of our books; pamphlets and membership subscriptions. For details of how to join us, membership is only £10 per year, or to browse our books please click on these links
We warmly welcome volunteers to give us a little of their time to help archive and support our work. Please click here to contact if you would like to help us.
