Billowness beach sits at the western end of Anstruther village, just in front of a golf course and in the lea of the headland round to Pittenweem. Its sharp arc gives it a picture book quality, reinforced by the blocked stone slipway at its edge. There’s sheltered seating on a raised terrace above the beach, where you can enjoy the ebb and flow of the tide with a southerly aspect, for the sunshine. This was a bright, warm day, with fine weather to reflect on life by the beach. Interviewee David recommended “The Old Ways” by John Ferguson.

A fine sight in the summer.
Located just west of the village of Anstruther, Billowness beach is part of a quiet, sandy bay. It’s on the Coastal Path and surrounded by natural beauty, with a golf course at the back of the beach. There are rock pools to play in and an unspoilt atmosphere. The beach has a satisfying arc as you walk on it and a depth that offers varied scenery at low tide.
