About Fife

Steeped in ancient history and an important Pictish kingdom many centuries ago, today our county is still known as the Kingdom of Fife. Among many accolades Fife is famous as the birthplace of Andrew Carnegie in Dunfermline, the home of golf in St Andrews and the site of iconic road and rail bridges over the Firth of Forth in the south, just outside Edinburgh, and the Firth of Tay in the north, connecting Fife to Dundee. With quaint streets and traditional architecture many of Fife's beautifully preserved villages like Culross and Falkland have found recent fame as atmospheric locations for the hugely popular historical drama Outlander.

You can travel by ferry, train, car, coach and bike, but once you're here, another great way to explore the Kingdom is to follow the Fife Coastal Path on foot. Stretching for 117 miles from the Firth of Forth to the Firth of Tay, it's one of Scotland's Great Trails and offers a range of walking experiences from easy to demanding through towns, villages, beaches and countryside. You can walk for as little or as long as you like, or even spend days walking from one destination to another and staying at some of our great accommodation along the way.
