St Andrews is home to Scotland's oldest university and recognised worldwide as the home of golf, with the championship Old Course links among its seven golf courses. With miles of sandy beaches, ancient ruins, museums, a cinema, cafes, bars, restaurants and shops ranging from the quirk to mainstream, the town is a perfect blend of history and cosmopolitan delights. Other must-dos include climbing the 156 steps of St Rule's Tower to take in the stunning views, discovering the secrets of brewing and gin distilling at nearby Eden Mill, strolling round St Andrews Botanic Gardens and Craigtoun Country Park, and delving deep into the Cold War at Scotland's Secret Bunker, located a few miles out of town.
Heading east from St Andrews, the Fife Coastal Path meanders for miles along stretches of stunning coastline, taking in along the way the quaint fishing villages of the East Neuk - Scots for nook or corner. Popular attractions in the area include the Crail Food Festival, held annually in June; the Scottish Fisheries Museum in Anstruther; Kellie Castle and gardens, just five miles north of Pittenweem; the landmark St Monans windmill overlooking the Forth; and Elie Watersports activity centre. A little inland is the equally charming village of Kingsbarns, famous for its golf links ranked in the world's top 100. It's also home to the historic Cambo Estate and it's very own whisky distillery.
Still heading east, the Fife Coastal Path also embraces the Levenmouth area, which includes the popular seaside town of Leven, the ancient fishing village of Lower Largo and Lundin Links, a tiny village with no less than two golf courses. Lundin Ladies Golf Course is the oldest women's golf course in the world and boasts an ancient standing stones circle on the second fairway.
