Visit the Reaper
Visit the Reaper

The Reaper, the Scottish Fisheries Museum’s historic Fifie herring drifter, will be open to visitors in Anstruther Harbour over the summer months.

Climb aboard to see how the herring, the mainstay of the Scottish fishing industry in the 19th and early 20th centuries, were caught and brought to shore..

Come below decks to visit the cabin, galley and engine room, and the fish-hold exhibition where we tell the story of the industry and the part the Reaper played.

Meet the volunteer crew and hear how they sail the Reaper today
