Famous as the home of golf, the county of Fife, Scotland has more to offer than is commonly known. Home to some of the world’s most picturesque seaside towns and villages, as well as rich in stunning scenery, we’ve compiled a list of places in Fife to add to your travel bucket list.
Have Dinner at the Anstruther Fish Bar
Award-winning and a firm favourite with both locals and tourists, the Anstruther Fish Bar knows how to plate up a fish supper to rival them all. Situated in the East Neuk of Fife, the Anstruther Fish Bar is only a stone’s throw away from our very own Silverdyke Park and boasts previous celebrity customers such as Tom Hanks, Robert De Niro and even Prince William.
Star in classic film Chariots of Fire
Okay, maybe not quite star in the film itself, but did you know Fife is home to the beach from the iconic opening scenes of the film? The West Sands Beach, St. Andrews was indeed the location for the opening sequence of the film. Take the opportunity to whip out your smartphone and run along the beach with friends for the ultimate Chariots of Fire cinematic experience.
Visit a Seal Colony
Take the chance to witness grey seals in the natural habitat, outside the confines of aquariums. With pleasure cruises leaving Anstruther and North Queensferry, there’s plenty of opportunity to hop on a boat and experience the natural world first hand. Plan your trip strategically and witness seal pups finding their flippers in their adorable little white baby fur coats! If you’re lucky too, you may even spot a puffin or two!
Take in World-Class Beauty on the Fife Coastal Path
Steeped in wildlife and natural beauty, a trip along the Fife Coastal Path should be a definite addition to everybody’s travel bucket list. Created in 2002, the path passes by historical sites such as Macduff’s Castle and Pitmilly. Visitors have been lucky enough to spot porpoises and dolphins along the route, as well as other local wildlife. The trail is extensive and runs from Kincardine to Newburgh and takes roughly a week to complete, but by all means is a very rewarding experience. Further information on the different stages of the walk, as well as technical challenges can be found here.
