We had visitors to our restaurant today with beautiful scottish accents. The are from Anstruther they tell us...the OTHER Anstruther. They were visiting Canada and were in Peterborough and realized that Anstruther Lake was only an hour away and then found themselves on our deck with a beverage and a view.
Named after their Anstruther about 140 years ago they presumed? Not sure, we answered, but yes, it could be after the scottish namesake but we know it wasn't done 140 years ago. With 6 years at the lake, we are still the 'new guys' so we are not sure where 'Anstruther' came from but we've been told that the original name for the Lake was Eagle. At what point or why it was changed we do not know.
Anyone out there know the history?
While we are all very familiar with the name, we have to spell it out to everyone and pronunciation...well...most outsiders say "AN-STROOO-THER" but not sure how they get to that.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
