The Fife region

Fife region

Fife: the royal burgh, famous for its history, fishing villages, and golf courses. With Falkland Palace, St Andrews Abbey and Dunfermline Abbey, Fife has a wealth of history to discover. The East Neuk of Fife, with its seaside and fishing villages, including Aberdour, Kinghorn, Leven, Elie, Pittenweem, Anstruther, Crail and St Andrews are fascinating to explore. Most have sandy beaches or houses with pantile roofs or old harbours and are a tourist's delight. St Andrews is renowned as “the home of golf” and a trip to visit the Old Course is a must, or choose from one of forty-six courses in this county.


The Burntisland area

The home of the Scottish royals and renowned for championship golf courses, the Kingdom of Fife is a beautiful rural retreat. From impressive historic ruins to bustling seaside towns and a scenic coastline, Fife has much to offer. The rugged cliffs are home to some magnificent and varied wildlife providing a haven for ramblers and wildlife enthusiasts. Some local highlights include: Deep Sea World; Falkland Palace; Dunfermline Abbey; Knockhill kart and Formula 3 racing; Aberdour Castle; Edinburgh; Edinburgh Castle; Fishing at Loch Leven. Burntisland has a particularly scenic golf course on the hillside looking over the bay to Arthur’s Seat. Aberdour and Kinghorn golf courses are all within two miles. The Beacon Leisure Centre with swimming pool, flumes and wave machine is next door.
