The area and getting around

Exploring what’s on offer in Fife...

The Kingdom of Fife - ancestral home of Scottish royalty, natural beauty and internationally renowned for its golfing scene. Containing a former capital of Scotland, Dunfermline, as well as a location just north of Scotland’s current capital, Edinburgh, Fife boasts plenty for city-slickers and lovers of the hustle and bustle. Come and enjoy fine dining, craft beer and hit the shops on a getaway here, not to mention checking out ruins and former castles for lovers of history!

Seaside strolls and salty snacks

Further afield, the rugged coast with its unique rock formations and tiny fishing villages will appeal to enthusiasts of nature and those looking for a more relaxed getaway. Head to St Andrews West Sands, 2 miles long and just 15 minutes’ walk from the center of St Andrews. For those looking for a more active vacation, go hiking along the Fife Coastal Path, running from Kincardine to Newburgh, with the opportunity to see dolphins or even basking sharks. Also, about halfway along this trek, you can find Anstruther Fish Bar, named the UK’s best fish and chips shop in 2008-9!

Travelers and activities

Fife for golf enthusiasts

Golf in Fife is like surfing in California. Beyond the many famous courses in St Andrews, Kingsbarns has a lovely sea view, and Lundin has a wide variety of golfing obstacles to test out your swing. If you reach your physical par and need to take some time off the course, further indulge your love for the sport and complement your game with a trip to the golf museum in St Andrews, recently refurbished and refitted. For those who are looking to play a whole different ball game, go and check out Britain’s oldest tennis court at Falkland Palace.

Fife for families and children

For families with children seeking entertainment in a way more suited to them, head on down to the pirate-themed Adventure Golf Island in Fife Leisure Park, boasting floodlit outdoor and indoor crazy golf courses. The Leisure Park also contains 10-pin bowling, a cinema and a bingo hall, so all ages can have the opportunity to enjoy themselves. And with the at-times unpredictable Scottish weather, here there will always be an indoor activity to pass the time away!
