Our Top 10 Places to Visit

The Fife Coastal Path

This 183km stretch of Fife coastline connects the River Forth and River Tay estuaries, from the Kincardine Bridge all the way up to Newburgh. With picturesque harbours and fishing villages dotted along the coastline, it's an enduringly popular route for walking and cycling. While a few have tackled the full route (over the course of a week or two!), most visitors break it up into shorter walks — the ideal way to take in the east coast's maritime history, iconic bridges and fine food & drink.

St Andrews

This historic seaside town on the Fife coast has many claims to fame. One of these is certainly the abundance of golf courses available, including the world-famous Old Course — and the town celebrates its status as 'The Home of Golf'. Other visitors, however, may be more intrigued by the university — founded in the 15th century — which famously was the setting in which Prince William and Kate Middleton first met.

Falkland & Lomond Hills

Right on the doorstep of our Fife holiday let properties, the picturesque village of Falkland is home to Falkland Palace — once a royal palace of the Scottish Kings. It recently doubled for the city of Inverness in the popular TV show, Outlander. Falkland is nestled between the two Lomond Hills — an area that became Scotland's first regional park in 1986 and is a popular spot for hiking and biking enthusiasts.

Loch Leven Nature Reserve

On the southern shore of Loch Leven — just west of Glenrothes — you'll find a serene nature reserve that's been a firm favourite of families and wildlife spotters for many years. The calm waters of the loch offer a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle, and for history buffs there's the added bonus of Lochleven Castle, built in the 1300s on an island in the middle of the loch — where Mary Queen of Scots was once held captive.

East Neuk Beaches

The 'east neuk' (or eastern corner) of Fife is home to some of Scotland's most beloved seaside towns and beaches, and if you love the sand underfoot and the call of seabirds, you'll find yourself quite at home here. Strong recommendations include Elie Beach, the West Sands in St Andrews, Kingsbarns Beach and Billow Ness Beach at Anstruther.

Distilleries in Fife

Fans of finely crafted spirits — gin, vodka and, of course, Scotch whisky — will have an array of options in Fife when it comes to seeing the distilling process first-hand and exploring Scotland's booming spirits scene. Whisky enthusiasts can expect a warm welcome at the Kingsbarns Distillery & Visitor Centre out on the East Neuk of Fife and a fascinating dive into history on the Lindores Abbey Distillery Tour, by the banks of the River Tay. Alternatively, visitors to Tayport Distillery can discover the craft behind their Scottish vodka, gin and eau de vie.

The Forth Bridges

Three bridges connecting Fife and Edinburgh — built in 1890, 1964 and 2017 — with iconic status and a wealth of fascinating engineering history behind them. The oldest bridge (The Forth Bridge) is now a UNESCO World Heritage site, and the views out from the shore or the bridges themselves can be truly spectacular. For charming sights and good food & drink, there are an abundance of sights, trails and places to visit along both shores — including filming locations from the hit TV show, Outlander.

Perthshire

A short drive north from our properties leads into the lush forests and scenic delights of Perthshire — a region that boasts over 200,000 acres of woodland and countless hidden gems. A good place to start exploring is Perth city itself — where riverside dining, art & culture and a wide selection of local businesses are the order of the day — before venturing up through Perthshire towards the Cairngorms, taking in the unique charms of Dunkeld, Aberfeldy and Pitlochry.

Dundee

Scotland's City of Discovery, Dundee's heritage as an historic trading port and hub of industry is still celebrated, but in recent years its creative scene and food & drink excellence have transformed its reputation. The city was recognised as the UK's first UNESCO City of Design in 2014 and the renowned V&A Dundee (right) opened in 2018, attracting arts and culture lovers from far and wide.

Edinburgh

Scotland's capital city — known colloquially as 'Auld Reekie' — Edinburgh is a thriving hub of culture, heritage and festivals. The city's centrepiece is the famous Edinburgh Castle, perched high above the city centre shopping district, but there are so many areas to explore, experiences to savour and histories to discover across the city that it keeps visitors coming back, time and time again.
