Ainster House

“We believe nothing is more powerful than beautifully crafted spaces” is a statement made by Glasgow based interior design and architecture company Scarinish Studio. A truer word couldn’t be spoken about Ainster House – a design-led luxury self-catering holiday home belonging to Creative Director Ross McNally which he runs alongside wife Lindsay.

Ainster House is located in Anstruther, a charming fishing town in the East Neuk of Fife, and is housed within a C-listed building that dates back to the 18th century, once serving as a Smuggler’s Tavern. Designed to accommodate up to 8 guests, the family-friendly home spans three floors, each thoughtfully arranged to provide ample space for relaxation. The property boasts stunning views of the nearby beach, Dreel river, and harbour, especially enjoyable from its two outdoor terraces.

Attention to detail is evident throughout Ainster House, ensuring both visual appeal and comfort for guests. Notable features include the beautifully restored coach doors on the ground floor, which open onto the street, inviting light into the living area. Additionally, a gas burning stove offers a cosy setting for guests to unwind, highlighting the property’s blend of historic charm and modern convenience.
