The Fife region
Life, they say, is what you make of it and this is especially true in the Kingdom of Fife. If you are looking for an active, action-filled holiday or a delightful short break then be sure to visit Fife. Superb watersports, scenic coastal walking, cycling, horse-riding and of course golf - it's all here in abundance.
On the other hand, a visit to the lush and fertile countryside will reveal a truly relaxing atmosphere. From the delightful fishing villages of the East Neuk to the Royal Burgh of St Andrews and from the rolling hills of the Howe of Fife to Dunfermline, the sights and sounds of Fife will live long in the memory.
For a sensational break this summer, your ideal destination is The Kingdom of Fife. From enjoying a host of exciting visitor attractions to admiring the fantastic coastal views on one of Fife's many beaches. Be enchanted by quaint fishing villages or play a round of golf on one of the historic links courses. Whatever you choose to do here, you'll be sure to have an experience in the Kingdom of Fife that you'll never forget!
Whether you're on a family day out, a relaxing short break or a holiday packed with sports and activities, there is never a dull moment in the Kingdom of Fife. From ancient castles to cathedrals, gardens to theatres, horse riding to karting, the Kingdom of Fife is the perfect place to visit this summer.
In spite of its small size, the picturesque royal burgh of St Andrews is famed far beyond the borders of Scotland. The seat of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club, the game's foremost authority, St Andrews is the spiritual home to golfers everywhere and over the years the famed Old Course has played host to the world's best players at many different championships. The town boasts eleven fine courses. With a course to suit every ability, regardless of experience golfers can savour the unique atmosphere of playing at the Home of Golf.
St Andrews is renowned for more than the game it gave to the world and evidence of its long and at times turbulent history can be seen everywhere. It is an ancient seat of learning, being home to Scotland's first university. Founded in 1412, the elegant, ivy-clad buildings and delightful quadrangles and gardens have seen a procession of famous graduates.
For centuries St Andrews was also at the centre of the religious life of the nation and its now ruined cathedral was once the largest in the country. At the adjacent church of St Regulus, you can climb the spiral staircase to the top of a 108-foot tower for magnificent views of the town and its surroundings. St Andrews Castle, perched on its promontory overlooking the sea, was the dramatic stage for several of the most notorious episodes of the Reformation.
