"Suitable for smaller yachts drawing up to 3ft. Approach from SE heading for the old railway viaduct (conspicuous). When about 100 yards offshore, line up on West face of pier and follow this line in - beware reef of rocks close on West side of this line (marked by poles) - stones on East side well covered near HW. Harbour open 2.5 hours either side of HW. Do not attempt entry in heavy onshore seas or if river in spate."
The notes on mooring were:
"Exposed anchorage about 1/4 mile offshore in about 1.5 fathoms on sandy bottom. Harbour space restricted. Yachts lie alongside Quay at Crusoe Hotel. Watch out for yachts lying off pier on running moorings. Bottom alongside pier fouled by some loose stones. Harbour liable to surge in onshore winds and can be dangerous if river in strong spate."
The facilities in the "very attractive village...well worth a stay" were noted as "Water at hotel. Telephone at Bridge. Shops in village. Garage at main road (1/2 mile up hill). Several good hotels. Fish and Chip shop. HQ Largo Bay Sailing Club who have dinghy launching facilities. Good beach. Buses to Leven and East Neuk."
Below is the map of the wider area included in the guide. Of Largo Bay, it was stated that "this bay shoals well out and is dangerous in strong onshore winds". Note the North Carr Lightship was still in service, anchored off Fife Ness, at the time. The following year - 1975 - it was taken out of service and served as a tourist attraction in Anstruther for many years thereafter. This vessel is currently awaiting restoration, with plans to exhibit her on Dundee waterfront.
