You cannot visit Fife without taking a trip out to the coast. There are countless stunning beaches, quaint fishing villages and hidden gems to discover along the Fife Coastal Path which stretches 117 miles and is Scotlands longest continuous coastal path. Cosmopolitan St Andrews is near the top of the coast path, and while we all know of course that it was the wooing ground of our future King, this town also boasts a stunning beach, a ruined castle overlooking the sea, a cathedral and a good aquarium. South of here and further along the path, explore the picturesque fishing villages of Crail, Anstruther, Pittenweem, St Monans, Elie and beyond, all with plenty of fantastic outdoor activities and amazing wildlife. Take a boat trip out to the Isle of May to see Puffins and seals in huge numbers.
Castles and museums are plentiful in Fife and are scattered throughout the region. Some hold a strong royal link, like the 900 year old Dunfermline Abbey and Palace; Ravenscraig Castle was build as an artillery defence and others look back at the different industries of the region, like the Scottish Fisheries Museum. 'Outlander' fans will recognise a number of filming locations in Fife, including Aberdour Castle and Culross.
There are lots of outdoor activities to do across Fife that all the family will enjoy. These include sea kayaking, climbing, abseiling, trampolining, crazy golf or family attractions like Cairnie Fruit Farm, Muddy Boots Farm, Fife Folk Museum and lots more!
There is lots to do in Fife so make sure you leave enough time to do it all and explore the beautiful towns and villages here!
