The Harbourmaster’s House

Harbourmaster’s House

Harbourmaster’s House is a B-listed 18th century building which is home to the headquarters of Fife Coast and Countryside Trust. In 2006, the building was renovated and refurbished as part of a £1 million project involving Fife Council, Fife Coast and Countryside Trust, Dysart Regeneration and the Dysart Trust. The building overlooks Dysart Harbour which is one of the oldest harbours in Fife, and more recently it featured as a location in the popular television series ‘Outlander’.

Coastal Centre

The basement houses the Coastal Centre an exhibition space which contains an interpretative display relating to Fife’s coastline and the history of the harbour.

The Coastal Centre remains closed while we explore and plan for improvements to the fabric of the centre and to update some of the interpretation panels. We apologise for any inconvenience. We hope to be able to update you in Spring 2024.

Harbourmaster’s Cafe

It is also home to the Harbourmaster’s Café, which is run by John Malone and his team. They serve freshly cooked seasonal fayre, so whether you are walking the Fife Coastal Path, or exercising your dog in Ravenscraig Park there is sure to be something to tempt your taste buds. The views out across Dysart Harbour and the Firth of Forth are spectacular at anytime, so whether enjoying a coffee with chocolate and walnut brownie, or a plate of soup, it is a great location to spend some time.

Harbourmaster’s House has excellent disabled access and is just a few metres from a free car park and just down the road from Ravenscraig Park. The Harbourmaster’s House toilets have been recognised in the National Loo of the Year Awards for a number of years.

Current cafe opening times are Thursday to Monday 10am to 3pm,  and closed Tuesday and Wednesday.
