Arc Architects

Arc is developing proposals to secure the future of an important cluster of public buildings in Anstruther Wester. Working on behalf of the Fife Historic Buildings Trust and funded by the Architectural Heritage Fund, an Options Appraisal Report has examined their condition and proposed a viable future use.

The Hew Scott Hall, St. Nicholas Tower and Wester Town Hall are important townscape landmarks dating from the 16th c. and valued by local people. However, their ownership is insecure and they need extensive repairs.

The recommended option would see the Hew Scott Hall transformed into a hub of rented artists’ studios and sharing facilities with the renewed community use of the Wester Town Hall. We welcome comments on the Options Appraisal (PDF, 2.9Mb)
