Fife and the East Coast

January 25, 2015

The Fife area is within an hour or two’s drive from Edinburgh and is well worth a visit.  Here you will find historic fishing villages, sandy beaches, and of course – golf courses!  Still known locally as the Kingdom of Fife, the area was once a Pictish kingdom and there are lots of historic sites to explore.

Some highlights

  • St Andrews. A wonderful university town with its ancient medieval castle and cathedral, wide sandy beaches and of course the Old Course, renowned the world over as the home of golf
  • Discover the East Neuk and take the scenic coast road through the fishing villages of St Monans, Pittenweem and Crail, not forgetting to stop for fish and chips at the award winning chippy in Anstruther
  • Visit historic Dunfermline Palace and Abbey, founded in the 11th century by Queen Margaret. Dunfermline is the mausoleum of some of Scotland’s great kings and queens.  Margaret is buried here along with her son, David I, and King Robert the Bruce.
