Fife is a county of Scotland and was once a major Pictish Kingdom and so, is now often referred to as the 'Kingdom of Fife'.

Here, the traveller is delighted by the stunning beaches, vibrant fishing villages and endless stretches of magnificent countryside. The history and scenery are astounding but it's the life in Fife that adds thrill and adventure to a holiday in the area. This is the perfect spot for an action packed and active break as you are offered horse riding, golf, climbing, cycling, walking, water sports, browsing quaint villages and shops, walking around ancient sites, sailing, go karting, paint balling, fishing, exploring or just curling up and relaxing.

This is a proud county and ancestral home to monarchs with attractions like the Forth Road, Falkland with its ruined palace and the lovely market town of Cupar, the beaches where 'Chariots of Fire' was filmed and the old University town of St Andrews.

The coastline here is home to tiny harbours and fishing villages, castles, cathedrals and more than forty golf courses as well varied wildlife, weird rock formations and delicate flora. Follow the Fife Coastal Path up to Crail where you'll find a variety of routes to follow taking you past grey seals, basking sharks and dolphins and the islands of Inchcolm, Inchkeith and the Isle of May with its hundreds of Puffins.
