The Kingdom of Fife is a beautiful place to explore. Perhaps most famously known for St Andrews and its golfing history, the region is home to a number of beautiful fishing villages, as well as plenty of castles, museums and galleries.
Just a short drive across the scenic Forth Road Bridge from Edinburgh, there is plenty to see and do for visitors young and old.
As one of the most famous golfing destinations in the world, it’s no surprise that St Andrews is a must-visit spot for those who like to spend a day on the links. Don’t worry if that’s not for you though, St Andrews has plenty of other things to see and do, including the beautiful cathedral, an aquarium and a fantastic food tour.
Fife is home to plenty of historical attractions showcasing Scotland’s past across the region, including Dunfermline Abbey and Aberdour Castle and Gardens.
From breweries to distilleries, there are plenty of opportunities to pick up a bottle or two to take home with you. St Andrews Brewing Company offers brewery tours and tastings, whilst Kingsbarns Distillery has tours of the distillery, as well as whisky and gin tastings.
Those looking for a break from the hustle and bustle might enjoy the quiet fishing villages of the East Neuk of Fife, such as Crail, Pittenweem and St Monans. Suitable for family holidays or cosy getaways, those who love the outdoors will enjoy the Fife Coastal Path for the beautiful views and the wonderful array of nature.
Spend the day by the sea, whether it’s watching the fishing boats coming in and out of the harbour or spending the day on a secluded beach for some restorative seaside air. Whatever you choose, make sure you finish the day with a fish supper form the famous Anstruther Fish Bar!
